The OMG Grilled Cheese was created by the students of this non-profit Bushwick campus farm that promotes from-scratch cooking, using  ingredients grown in their community garden. The combination of Jarlsberg, queso fresco, grilled peppers and onions, served with a sofrito sauce,
collard greens and salad, was inspired by a secret family recipe of one of the students.
