Stamford, Connecticut's Elm Street Diner is making grilled cheese even cheesier with a dish that it calls the 'Ultimate Melt.' Just as the name suggests, this gooey sandwich is the ultimate challenge for cheese-loving foodies.
The Ultimate Melt actually starts with short ribs that are braised for more than eight hours. Just as the meat is finishing, slices of Texas toast are topped with cheddar and mozzarella, caramelized onions, and mozzarella sticks. If that weren't enough cheesy goodness in one sandwich, the restaurant quadruples the recipe by putting four cheese sandwiches together. The result is savory short ribs, combined with the subtle sweetness of cheese, and a bit of crunch from the mozzarella sticks. While it may be tasty, the massive size of this dish means that you'll definitely want to share.
