Dinner Tonight: Sage Grilled Cheese

It can seem like the the Zuni Cafe's secret to success is all about waiting. The San Francisco restaurant is famous for salting just about everything and letting it sit for long periods of time. My experiences with recipes from its Zuni Cafe Cookbook have been remarkable. Its roast chicken is a beauty to behold.

Which is all well and good, but if you need dinner pronto, then this little pick from the appetizer section might be a quick route--not that it doesn't try to trip you up as often as possible. Oil is infused, sandwiches are smashed with large pots, and a brush is used. You may wonder what happened to a simple grilled cheese. But even with a few pretenses, it can still be cooked in less than 30 minutes, and it always makes me feel much less guilty about any grilled cheese cravings. It also helps that I usually use some great Fontina.
