Chinatown

Created by:

Inspired by Chinatowns across America, this unique offering combines all the flavors of Peking duck in a grilled cheese sandwich. Tender, juicy duck with crispy skin, crunchy melon and cucumber, and a green onion hoisin spread all meld together with Wisconsin brie and alpine-style cheese. It’s fusion food at its finest.

COOKING DIRECTIONS

Butter 1 side of bread slices. Combine mayonnaise, green onion, cilantro, hoisin and five spice powder in small bowl. Spread mixture on unbuttered side of each bread slice.

Heat skillet over medium-low heat. Place 2 bread slices in skillet, buttered-side-down. Top with remaining ingredients in this order: brie, cantaloupe, cucumber, duck and alpine cheese. Top with 2 remaining bread slices, buttered-side-up.

Grill sandwiches in skillet until bottoms are lightly browned, and the cheese begins to melt. Carefully flip the sandwiches over, pressing gently with spatula. Grill other sides until bread is golden and the cheese is gooey.
