How To Make A Bloody Mary Grilled Cheese

According to this Delish recipe, the first step with this grilled cheese is whipping up a Bloody Mary cocktail with the usual mix of tomato juice, vodka, hot sauce, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. Then, soak the bread in the cocktail.

In a similar way to French toast, letting the bread soak in the cocktail will cause it to absorb all of the flavors of the liquid. Next, pan-fry each bread slice until crispy, and use it to make a sandwich with melted cheddar cheese, tomatoes and bacon.

Wickles Pickles

In case you’re not drooling already, Wickles Pickles has a similar recipe for a Bloody Mary grilled cheese — with a Southern twist. This recipe calls for adding spicy pickled okra to the sandwich, which, if you’re an okra fan, sounds amazing.

However, even if you’re a purist who prefers nothing but cheddar cheese in between your bread slices, the Bloody Mary-soaked bread will provide more than enough tang to make this sandwich a party in your mouth.

No matter which route you go, make sure to eat your sandwich hot! Nothing is worse than a soggy or room-temperature grilled cheese.
