Salisbury Steak Grilled Cheese with Mushroom Gravy

Salisbury Steak Grilled Cheese with Mushroom Gravy
April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month, and thus, one of my favourite months! Today I am celebrating by turning the classic salisbury steak with mushroom gravy into a grilled cheese, a salisbury steak grilled cheese with mushroom gravy! So this grilled cheese is basically a salisbury steak, aka a ground beef patty, that is placed between two slices of buttered bread along with plenty of cheese and its grilled in a pan until the bread is nice and golden brown, crispy and the cheese has melted before being served topped with the tasty mushroom gravy! Yum! This salisbury steak grilled cheese with mushroom gravy can be a little messy but it is well worth it and a great way to enjoy #NationalGrilledCheeseMonth!

  2. For the mushroom gravy:
  3. Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat, add the mushrooms and onion and cook until the mushroom have released their moisture, it has cooked off and the mushrooms start to turn a light golden brown, about 13-15 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic, thyme and flour and and cook for 2 minutes, stirring.
  5. Add the broth, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the gravy thickens, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. For the grilled cheese:
  7. Butter one side of each slice of bread, sprinkle half of the cheese onto the unbuttered side of half of the slices of bread followed by the patties, 1 tablespoon of the gravy each, the remaining cheese and finally top with the remaining slices of bread with the buttered side up.
  8. Grill over medium heat until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-3 minutes per side, before serving topped with the remaining gravy or with the gravy on the side for dipping.

Grilled Cheese? Kevin I follow and love you but I question what some chefs including you are calling grilled cheese these days. I would expect cheese to be the main ingredient.

This is more like a Patty Melt on steroids. It looks great and I'll bet delicious but I doubt that it is a grilled cheese.
