Chocolate Mascarpone Grilled Cheese

Chocolate Mascarpone Grilled Cheese

For the past two years, I have created a special Valentine’s Day grilled cheese involving strawberries. This year, I wanted to do something different, I wanted to do something I had yet to tackle. For every single grilled cheese sandwich I have cooked, they have been the main course. They have been the star. Not […]

Nacho Cheese Grilled Cheese

Nacho Cheese Grilled Cheese

In honor of the upcoming Super Bowl, I asked GrilledShane Facebook fans, “Does anyone have any ideas as to what a super bowl grilled cheese would look like?” Thankfully, everyone came through and made great suggestions. Unfortunately, I had to discount a few right away simply because I keep Kosher (pigs in a blanket and […]

Caprese Grilled Cheese

Caprese Grilled Cheese

A couple weeks ago I went with the sous chef and nephew to see the play, Knuffle Bunny. If you have never heard of such a book or play, you aren’t the only one. I had no idea what it is prior to going and I am still not sure I know now, weeks after. […]

Tilapia Grilled Cheese

Tilapia Grilled Cheese

Recently, I ate a fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato panini that I thought was amazing. I wanted to recreate that classic sandwich when I received an email from Whole Foods: Fresh tilapia was going to be 50% off per pound, last Friday only. I then thought, “Hey, I have done a salmon grilled cheese sandwich, why […]

Beer Bread Grilled Cheese

Beer Bread Grilled Cheese

Even since I found a Grilled Beer and Cheese Sandwich recipe on Wisconsin Cheese Talk (recipe courtesy Gabi of Honest Fare), I had wanted to try it out for myself. However, I was worried about actually making the bread and in turn the grilled cheese. Up until now, I had always bought my bread. The only […]

Now onto the newest grilled cheese creation featuring cream cheese. This sandwich was inspired by Grilled Cheese Social‘s “Team Cream” post/grilled cheese. I had hoped to follow the recipe […]

Roasted Garlic & Tomato Grilled Cheese

Roasted Garlic & Tomato Grilled Cheese

Recently, I have felt like my grilled cheese sandwiches have been missing something. They have not been as creative or unique as they could be. With this grilled cheese, I tried to turn the tide, even if it doesn’t appear to be that elaborate. As is the case lately, I was standing in Whole Foods […]

Sweet Potatoes Grilled Cheese

Sweet Potatoes Grilled Cheese

While walking around Whole Foods with the sous chef, I was trying to think of an idea for tonight’s grilled cheese. I had thought broccoli but quickly dismissed that. I thought potatoes, but was unsure of my choices other than potato chips. That is when the sous chef suggested mashed potatoes on a grilled cheese, which I […]

Cotswold Cheese & Blue Grilled Cheese

Cotswold Cheese & Blue Grilled Cheese

I had not truly thought about creating a grilled cheese sandwich for tonight’s dinner until I was driving with the sous chef to see Billy Elliot. I was not prepared with any great ideas or recipes to choose from. Not until I arrived at Whole Foods after the play did I truly begin to think, […]

WSJ: Grilled Taleggio-Walnut Sandwich With Roasted Fall Grapes

The appearance of this grilled cheese sandwich, Grilled Taleggio-Walnut Sandwich With Roasted Fall Grapes, is what intrigued me the most. The grapes/arugula on the side and the crispy nature of country white bread (of all breads) all appear to make a great meal. I normally turn my nose at the thought of using white bread […]
