Hotties & Hot Cheese … Pickle Day is Here!

Small-town cheese from New Hampshire moves to big city. Before long, it finds itself swept off it’s feet, melted between two toasty pieces of focaccia, doing the culinary equivalent of dirty dancing with Hotties, Sriracha spiced pickles from Rick’s Picks. Look out Baby/Frances/Jennifer Gray, there’s a new tag team in town!

What makes this grilled cheese magic? We’ve decided to unveil our not-so-top-secret recipe to get your tastebuds humming… (I’ve had… the time of my life…)

2 oz Landaff (raw cows’ milk cheese from Landaff Creamery, NH)
Handful of ‘Hotties’ Rick’s Picks Sriracha spiced pickles

Preparation: (easy as pie!)
Slice bread
Place 2 hearty hunks of Landaff in between slices
Slice Hotties in half to make ’em a bit skinnier
