Described as having "eight delicious layers of gooey goodness sandwiched between sourdough and Italian style breads" the stack has been created using the brand's Mild Red, Mature and Extra Mature cheddars with each section featuring a different complementary flavour including sweet fried onion, succulent pulled pork and cranberry sauce.
On offer for one day only, Wednesday 12th April, at Nic’s NYC Deli in Glasgow ( 2pm-6pm, 396 Byres Road) and Meltmongers in Edinburgh (9am-4pm, 80 Bruntsfield Place), the dish is thought to be the biggest grilled cheese sandwich ever made in Scotland – and special rewards have been promised to those who can finish it.
Diners who take on the challenging dish and polish it off will receive an official ‘I Conquered The Cheese Stack’ filter for their social media profiles - with the ten quickest also winning a year’s supply of Graham’s cheese*.
Carol Graham, Marketing Director at Graham’s the Family Dairy said: “Whether you prefer to call it grilled cheese, toasted cheese or roasted cheese, Wednesday is the perfect opportunity to order the ultimate comfort food; hot, melted, buttery cheese – ten whole layers of it. It’s time for Scotland’s cheese lovers to step up to the challenge.”
Nic Sharp, Nic’s NYC Deli said: “We were delighted to partner with Graham’s the Family Dairy on this cheesy competition. Our customers love a food eating challenge, and what better way to get a ‘slice’ of the action than on National Grilled Cheese Sandwich day?”
Martin Boyle, Meltmongers said: “As Scotland’s first dedicated grilled cheese establishment, our regular customers are fanatical about cheese, so any excuse to eat more they’ll happily take. Graham’s mature cheddar makes the grate-est grilled sandwiches and we’re looking forward to seeing who’ll become a champion of the Ultimate Cheese Stack.”
