A Culinary Inspiration – Chef Nathan Lippy

It all started with an intriguing idea from the ‘grilled dads’—yeah, those cool folks (if you’re not following them yet, you should). They sparked my creativity with their unique take on grilled cheese, incorporating peppers into a cheese crust. Inspired by their genius, I set out to create my own variation using none other than my trusty Blackstone Griddle.

The Recipe for Perfection

Imagine this: thick slices of sourdough bread buttered and toasted to golden perfection on a Blackstone Griddle. The secret here is low, medium heat to allow the cheese—a generous amount, I might add—to melt evenly without burning the bread. This isn’t just any grilled cheese; it’s the grilled cheese of all grilled cheeses.

Adding the Twist: Jalapeno and Parmesan Crust

As the bread toasted, I prepped for the pièce de résistance: a jalapeno and Parmesan crust. Just when the cheese inside the sandwich was nearly melted to perfection, I scattered finely grated Parmesan on the griddle and topped it with thin slices of jalapeno. Then, I carefully placed the sandwich back on the griddle, this time on top of the cheese and peppers, creating a crispy, flavorful crust that’s a game-changer.

The Moment of Truth

The result? A visually stunning and mouthwatering grilled cheese, with a crispy outer layer that contrasted beautifully with the gooey, melted interior. It’s a combination that’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. The spicy kick of the jalapenos married with the savory depth of the Parmesan elevates this from a simple sandwich to a gourmet treat.

Using the Blackstone Griddle for this recipe was a decision that paid off massively. Its even heat distribution and spacious surface made it easy to manage the various components of the dish simultaneously, from toasting bread to melting cheese to crafting that irresistible cheese crust.
