I’m fully aware that there are different rules at different campuses. Some allow microwaves, some don’t. Some allow irons and hot plates, some don’t. And in the interest of offering up as many options as I can, I have a really fun “ironing board recipe” for you this week. (Good for you bachelors who have a hard time cooking too!)
I have to admit, this recipe was pretty fun to make. I started thinking about all kinds of recipes I could make using an iron. I mean, who doesn’t like grilled cheese sandwiches? What a great way to make them without all the added fat of frying them??!! (I love them with tomatoes.) And if you don’t mind missing out on the grill marks, this could even work for a lower fat panini! The possibilities are pretty endless. So I will do my best to create a few more for you. But until then, enjoy this delicious blend of goat cheese and balsamic vinegar. Such a great pairing!
