Uptown “gorilla” Cheese Sandwiches

Recipe #134755
To this day we still refer to grilled cheese sandwiches as “gorilla” cheese - a name our son, Jesse, gave his favourite restaurant order when he was a toddler! Half the fun, of course, was seeing the waitress’ reaction! This “uptown” version has become a regular for us on Sunday nights.

Gorilla Cheese’s James Klayman Defends His $8.75 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
By Rebecca Marx, Mon., Jun. 6 2011 at 12:54 PM
​When it took to the streets last month, Gorilla Cheese was the first of a trinity of fancy grilled-cheese trucks scheduled to debut this summer. Office workers and bloggers duly expressed excitement over the promise of roving melted dairy, tater tots, mac ‘n’ cheese, and a slew of dipping sauces. Until, that is, they were hit with an acute case of sticker shock.
