As many of you know, I am a little bit obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches! While I was in Montreal, a friend at Van Houtte coffee suggested something new, a grilled cheese sandwich served with maple syrup and as soon as I heard the idea, I knew that I would have to try it! The sweet and savoury combination often works out well and when you combine two of my favourite things, grilled cheese sandwiches and maple syrup, you are bound to get a winner. Like I needed an excuse to try a grilled cheese sandwich in a new way!
The grilled cheese sandwich served covered in maple syrup turned out just as well as I thought it would! The sweet and savoury combination was magnificent and I will definitely be doing it again! Now grilled cheese sandwiches are not just for lunch any more and this is the perfect excuse to have them for breakfast!
