Have you ever moved away from a place and longed for food from that favorite restaurant that you used to frequent? That is what happened to me when Ryan and I moved away from the Portland area. Ryan used to work in South East Portland and we would often go to lunch together at The Lucky Lab . It’s a typical pub with great beer and sandwiches and you can also bring your dog if you sit outside which is pretty cool. Whenever we would go I would always order the “Three Cheese Meltdown” on their menu. It would come perfectly grilled with 3 different kinds of cheese, salsa, mushrooms and pepperoncinis. This recipe is based on that sandwich.
If you have checked out my other Grilled Cheese Sandwich you can tell that I am a huge fan of more than just cheddar on my grilled cheese which is why this sandwich appealed to me so much. If you don’t care for the types of cheese I use go ahead and feel free to substitute your favorite. The Lucky Lab actually uses swiss cheese on their sandwich but I didn’t have any so I substituted provolone and it was just as delicious.
Since I can't make it to Lucky Lab to get the original Three Cheese Meltdown this is the perfect alternative. It is a great lunch or even dinner when served with Homemade Potato Chips. Enjoy!
