Roasted Red Pepper, Capocollo & Gouda Grilled Cheese | #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

In an effort to use up all the meat and cheese in my fridge, I am constantly running ingredients through my mind trying to think of delicious pairings. Upon gazing into the heavenly glow of my fridge, my eyes settled on several ingredients: roasted red pepper, spicy Italian capocollo (/capicolla), red onion, and Gouda cheese. It all sounded great in my mind, and was no disappointment when I put it together!

I always try to strike a balance with my grilled cheeses, and this one certainly had that! A sweet tang from the roasted red pepper, spice and meatiness from the hot capocollo, red onions lightly caramelized so they still retain a slight bite, all smoothed out with creamy Gouda cheese. Now go make yourself a grilled cheese, you deserve it!
