County Fair Grilled Cheese
Wisconsin, “America’s Dairyland”, is home to the Sheboygan County fair in Plymouth where the Lyons Club serves up the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the world. Forget the corn dogs, funnel cakes and other midway offerings. These hot-off-the-grill sandwiches are a once a year treat. They keep it simple with only two choices: brick on rye or cheddar on white. Order one of each and you’re set for the evening. Of course you have to leave room for the homemade mini doughnuts but if you pace yourself it’s not a problem. I’ve watched the ladies behind the curtain and don’t think there are magic tricks being pulled. They butter both sides of the bread, add 2 slices of cheese and pass ’em down the line where they are grilled until golden brown. Maybe it’s the Labor Day feel in the air and the anticipation that makes them taste so good but I look forward to them each year as Summer comes to a close.
Cheddar on White, less stinky than Brick on Rye but both are delish
