Daiya Vegan Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Daiya Vegan Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Thanks to the assistance and suggestions of the sous chef and new sous chef jr., I decided this week I would go out on a limb and try dairy-free cheese, or in this case, vegan Cheddar cheese. Now, you are probably as confused by those three words as I was. How on earth can cheese, […]

Avocado Spread & Alfalfa Sprouts Grilled Cheese

Avocado Spread & Alfalfa Sprouts Grilled Cheese

Inspiration for my grilled cheese creations can come from the strangest places. This week was no exception. At Jimmy John’s, a sub place I am known to frequent, they have a vegetarian sub that I love. (#6 for those that have been to Jimmy John’s. I order it on multigrain.) As their menu reads: Layers of provolone […]

Recently, I had taken a break from grilled cheese sandwiches as culinary classes were winding down for the semester and I wanted to focus on my studies. I had a final practicum consisting of knife skills and recipe, as well as a country presentation. Oh and the final. Thankfully, I can say I have completed […]

Fried Matzoh Grilled Cheese

Fried Matzoh Grilled Cheese

When I originally started this grilled cheese project, I never imagined that I would be doing it for 3 years plus, nor did I think that I would create special grilled cheeses for Passover. However, that is exactly what has happened. Originally, I created a Matzoh & Charoset Grilled Cheese and then last year a PassEaster Grilled […]

I was not planning on cooking a grilled cheese this week as I have a big quiz on Wednesday and needed to study. However, on Saturday at Whole Foods, I noticed that they had a three year aged Gouda on sale for $9.99 lb, originally $16.99 ea. I couldn’t resist. I haven’t used Gouda much, so […]

A week ago the folks and I traveled to the great city of Pittsburgh and the Strip District for a min-vacation. For the first time, I went to the Strip with grilled cheese on the mind. With many bakeries selling fresh out of the oven bread, it was a perfect place to purchase bread for […]

The Grilled Cheese Kitchen and laundry room were having issues over the weekend, with multiple sinks backing up. Since we weren’t sure when the problem would be fixed, the original plan was to not do a grilled cheese sandwich. Then, sometime Monday, Mr. Plumber came and made the problem go away (for now). With the […]

Gruyere & Gorgonzola w/Hazelnut Butter Grilled Cheese

When The Christian Science Monitor volunteered to send me a copy of Laura Werlin‘s new grilled cheese cookbook, grilled cheese please, in turn for a review, I asked where do I sign. Seemed like a no brainer to me. The last time I wrote a book review was probably sometime in grade school for some […]

Eggplant & Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese

Every Friday, Whole Foods has a different special deal that is good only for that day. This past week, it was buy one get one free on a special brand of pasta/tomato sauce. I was real excited, as I thought I could use this pasta sauce as a dipping for my next grilled cheese sandwich. […]

Garlic & Green Onion Mashed Potatoes Grilled Cheese

Garlic & Green Onion Mashed Potatoes Grilled Cheese

As I do when I don’t have an idea for a grilled cheese, I walk around Whole Foods looking for inspiration for the week’s grilled cheese. However, this time, it was not Whole Foods that inspired me, but me remembering an old idea I never tried. Way back, I had thought of creating a mashed […]
