A Stereotypical Midwestern Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Some people like to exaggerate the type and amount of food we Midwesterners eat. We don't douse everything in oil or slather it in frosting. Once in a while, we'll even eat a veggie or two.

But my order at Michael's Goody Boy Diner in the Short North a few weeks ago played into every bad stereotype anyone has ever had about Midwestern food: a five-cheese triple-decker grilled cheese sandwich.

Not only did it have five cheeses --American, Swiss, provolone, pepper jack, and feta -- it was also topped with ham, bacon, cole slaw and (to make it healthy, I guess?) a grilled tomato.

Truth be told, it wasn't that good. Perhaps one, maybe two cheeses are all that should be included on a sandwich. But tasty or not, it sure did make me feel like I was in Ohio again.
