Grilled Sean Sandwich

Hey man, what’s up? Haven’t done a recipe Blog in a while. And lately people have been all like “Yo Seeeeeeeeaan, what you eatin'”? Well, little buddy, scads of experimentation have been occuring in the YCL Personal Kitchen, with grilled cheese being the main focal point of note. “Grilled cheese, but that’s really simple you idiot!” Well, you little tub of lard, I caught myself voicing the very same pontifications not three weeks ago. There are myriad ways this traditional gut-stuffer can be prepared. “But Sean, don’t you just need butter, cheese, and bread”? You would like to think that wouldn’t you, you little porker? I have stretched the very limits of what grilled cheese can be, so much so that it probably is just classified as a sandwich. I don’t know, I just eat it. And I got rid of the butter. America has been covered in buttery goodness for far too long.¬†As usual, I don’t know how measurements work, so use your best judgment.

What you will need:

-Enough black beans to cover a piece of bread. (In alternate versions, a chopped up hard-boiled egg was used in place of beans, but it didn’t test as well, although it is still used on occasion.)

-Natural peanut butter. (no hydrogenated oil!) I prefer chun-kay. Mashed avocado can also be substituted. Gotta love that monounsaturated fat!

-Two slices of bread. Opt for whole wheat, as white bread is the same viscosity of glue. Seriously, white bread is bad.

-Spinach. The leafy kind, not the swill that comes in the cans.

-Tomato, thyme, and haaaaaaaaaaaat saaaaaaaaaaaaasssss(hot sauce.)

-Cheese. Pepper jack, sharp cheddar, colby, it’s all good.

Here is how you do it. Oh, I haven’t mentioned it yet, but I have been using a Foreman grill. So probably have that pre-heating in the background. And if you don’t have one, wow, what is this, the ’80’s?

-Anyways, spread a very thin layer of the peanut butter onto one piece of the bread. You see, peanut butter is not the star of this dish. We must place him in a supporting role, in order to make his presence felt, but not overpower the taste of the sandwich.

-This is where you put the beans over the peanut butter. Not too thick of a layer, just kind of squeege them into the P.B.

-I have been using blocks of cheese, so cut four pieces out of that and gently lay them over the beans. On top of this layer, dribble the hot sauce, and on top of that, sprinkle the thyme, or any other seasoning that you may prefer.

-At this point, you will want to dice up some tomatoes and scatter them over the cheese layer. Then lay some spinach atop the Tomato Layer. After this has been accomplished, set the other piece of bread over that, pop it onto the Foreman for about five minutes, and BOOOYAAAA, you’ve got yourself a rather appealing sandwich.

Today’s Blong is from the movie Fear of a Black Hat. Although it came out in the mid-’90’s, I still feel that it conveys a very positive message.
