Who doesn't love the simple perfection of a grilled cheese sandwich? And, who doesn't love the simple perfection of a plain, glazed donut?
Now, imagine slicing that sweet and spongy donut in half, generously buttering the two interior surfaces and putting those down on a searing hot grill.
Now, place two heaping handfuls of grated salty, stringy mozzarella on the two sweet surfaces facing up. Salivating yet?
The chef at Clinton Hall in New York City made one of these sandwiches for us recently and eating it was heaven.
It's served hung on a tiny hook, the way a soft pretzel is often served, and it hovered over the best bowl of beautifully acidic fresh tomato soup. There's so much cheese on this sandwich it oozes down into the soup and reminds you of the Swiss cheese that always makes a French onion soup so perfect.
There are three Clinton Hall locations in NYC. If you're near one of them during this wickedly cold winter, or anytime really, pop in and tuck into this cozy dish.
