America's Strangest Sandwiches: Cheesycake Melt at The Grilled Cheese Truck

The Cheesycake Melt: The Grilled Cheese Truck

Founder Dave Danhi opened the world’s first mobile grilled cheese truck back in 2009 and now operates out of California, Texas, and Arizona. While he’s still tinkering with the savory grilled cheese original, he recently turned his attention to a sweet version. The Cheesycake Melt’s backbone is brioche bread, created specifically for Danhi, with large pieces of Oreo cookie baked into the loaf. “We like to overcook the cheesecake just a bit,” Danhi says, “so it gives a golden-brown toast flavor to the richness of the cheese.” The cheesecake is whipped into a spread, layered with premium raspberry preserves, sprinkled with crumbled Oreos, and plopped on a griddle until crispy. thegrilledcheesetruck.com
