10. Sweet Corn Grilled Cheese with Smoked Gouda, Scallions, and Chile Butter
I don’t know which I love more – the crunch and heat of the chile butter on the sourdough, or the sweet corn dotting the smoky Gouda (smoked cheddar is another great option, and it melts better than Gouda). By all means, don’t wait until summer to taste this. Give it a try with frozen corn any time of the year. For more recipes like this, visit PaniniHappy.com.
