It’s difficult to improve the grilled cheese sandwich beyond pairing it with a cup of tomato soup, but the masterminds behind this recipe managed to do it. Look no further for a cold weather comfort food than this reinvention of the buttery, creamy classic. Spoon University took arguably the best snack food, tater tots, and condensed them in a waffle iron as a drool-worthy substitute for plain sandwich bread.
The waffle iron gets the perfect crispy edges to the tater tots for a perfect contrast to the creaminess of the cheese piled inside. Just to take the whole thing to the next level, they add a generous amount of bacon and chopped jalapeno. Don’t skimp, or you won’t get this signature cheese pull between sections that’s essential for the best grilled cheese.
