Happy, happy, joy, joy! It’s time once again for 12 Bloggers, a monthly series where 12 bloggers, {hence the name!}, bring you delicious recipes using 12 ingredients or less! This month we are bringing you 12 amazing grilled cheese recipes! Since I’m out of town, {happy 24th anniversary to me & the Mr.!}, my wonderful friend {and all around BFF}, graciously agreed to guest post for me this month. You’ll be glad she did, because she’s got a fabulous grilled cheese recipe to share!

Hey, it’s Kelley from Miss Information, and I’m here to share with you one of my favorite grilled cheese recipes. I love traditional grilled cheese made with loaf bread and kraft American cheese, but sometimes I like to kick it up a bit. A friend’s husband gave me this recipe and you are going to love it! It is tangy, savory and has a slight kick to it. It has a roasted cowhorn pepper in it, which you may see every day in your grocery store, but, probably never knew what to do with it!

Cowhorn peppers have a low heat and when they grow they curl up at the ends to resemble a steer’s horn hence the name cowhorn pepper. You will mainly find them green in the grocery store.

For this grilled cheese sandwich recipe, I roasted them in the broiler to make them soft and peeled off the skin. They are then layered with deli turkey, swiss cheese and fresh sourdough bread slathered in dijon mustard. The real secret to a good grilled cheese is low heat and a lid on your pan. These two things will get the cheese all melty and soft and keep your bread from burning. It’s all about patience, my friend.
