What you have here is one of the finest Polish grilled cheese ideas of all time. This cheese is unlikely to have ever been attempted on American soil, so this is groundbreaking stuff right here.
This particular cheese is called Oscypek (pronounced: Ozlsg@qyhdypekek). It’s a delicious smoked cheese made of salted sheep’s milk from the Tatra Mountains region of Poland. I discovered this seductive brine-soaked, 14-day-smoked bundle of goodness last year when I visited Kraków, Poland.

A grilled cheese with pork roll, tots, and Colby jack cheese is the perfect way to start your morning.
The Taylor Pork Roll is a classic New Jersey breakfast staple that sort of resembles Canadian Bacon mixed with Salami. Mostly comprised of ham, this product comes fully cooked, but when pan-fried the porky richness is amplified and the caramelized meat takes on a delicious savory flavor. And when covered in melted cheese - well as you could imagine, it gets even better.
