CHEF’S DESCRIPTION: We were inspired by the classic grilled cheese but wanted to make a grown-up version with a bit of zest to it. After much experimentation, the Buffalo Chicken Bacon Grilled Cheese was born. The dough starts out with triple fermentation that includes a Polish Ferment and is then brushed with 100 percent extra virgin olive oil infused with fresh garlic. It is topped with Pappy’s Hot Pepper Butter, a local sauce from Maize Valley, all-natural mozzarella and provolone, local, nitrate-free, non-GMO, grass-fed bacon, all natural Middlefield smoked cheddar, all-natural chicken breast, organically grown arugula, drizzled with house-made organic ranch and finally finished off with our house-made organic seasoning.

Menu Price: Large for $19.99, regular menu item
