I still remember my first Cheesus Burger like it was yesterday. A tasty burger smothered between two grilled cheese sandwiches – yes, you heard that right. Ever since I went Behind-the-Scenes at the Grilled Cheese Grill with Matt Breslow, as he was becoming our 4th featured chef in the Tillamook Kitchen, I haven’t been able to stop craving the Cheesus’ cousin, the Quesus Burger! Or the Open-faced Grilled Cheese Benedict! Or Morton’s Meatball Sandwich (where there is just the right amount of grilled bread so you can fully relish the melty meatballs)!
So what was it like behind the scenes? Well, I made a new best friend, Morton:
I learned how to poach the perfect egg (even with a ton of camera equipment crammed into your kitchen):
We thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of a sunny day in wintery Portland:
Morton is a VERY well-behaved pup:
And it is never-ending fun to look through all the classroom photos that cover the inside of the buses (see if you can recognize Matt as he went through his school years!):
So when you stop by the Grilled Cheese Grill in Portland, Oregon to satisfy that childhood craving for grilled cheese, do be sure to say hello to Matt and Morton for me!
