Grilled Cheese Roundup: Fresh Ricotta & Grilled Bread, New Food Documentary, & Many Grilled Cheese Recipes

Instead of posting each individual item I stumble on only on Facebook, I will be posting roundups right here that highlight that day (or weeks) interesting grilled cheese web finds. I hope for this to be a regular feature, as long as I have the content. If you find anything grilled cheese related that you would like to share, either post it on the Facebook page or email me at grilledcheese [at] grilledshane.com. Thanks! Long live the grilled cheese!

This may (or may not) be a grilled cheese sandwich but with something that looks that good, I am not going to argue about what I should call it, I just want to devour it. Grapes are not something I typically include in my cooking, but it is definitely a great ingredient regardless of what you are making. Beyond the recipe, which was found in RealSimple, the photography of this tasty treat is phenomenal. If I could take one photo like the one above, I would be jumping up and down for days. All around, very well done.

Farmageddon (Documentary)

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent ac-tion, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

This article is not about grilled cheese (or tomato soup, really) but about tomatoes in general and a great night out. However, this is not what caught my eye. The mini-grilled cheese sandwiches sitting on top of mini-cups of grilled cheese is exactly what did it for me. How awesome are they?! Sure, you were probably supposed to only eat one sandwich/cup of soup, but if I was at this event, I would have eaten about 5-10 of these little pieces of heaven. Delish!

Grilled Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

Along the same lines as the above mini-grilled cheese with mini-cups of tomato soup, this recipe actually uses the grilled cheese sandwiches as croutons. Who said you have to eat the grilled cheese on the side of a cup of tomato soup and then dip it in? Why not save a step and simply toss the grilled cheese sandwiches into the soup?! Plus, these grilled cheese croutons aren’t simply plain/simple sandwiches. They are “kicked up” with basil, chives and thyme herbs and colby-jack cheese. Kathy even includes an awesome recipe for the base of this awesome meal, homemade tomato soup.

I love eggs. I love grilled cheese sandwiches. It only makes sense that I love eggs IN grilled cheese sandwiches. Minus the prosciutto (remember the Kosher thing?), this sandwich would be absolutely delicious. Well, it might even be better with the prosciutto, but I shall never know. Either way, yummy!

Vegan Grilled Cheese

What intrigues me most about this vegan grilled cheese is that it does not use a cheese substitute, like Daiya (as I did previously), yet it combines various ingredients to create a cheese like product. Honestly, as I am not a vegan, I have not done my research on vegan grilled cheese sandwiches, but I am definitely intrigued by this method. Plus, it looks pretty good. Throw some salsa on the sandwich and I bet the grilled cheese will taste great.

  1. Shane, this GC roundup today is AWESOME. I wish I could comment/discuss all of these today in detail but I won’t. I will just leave it at this: I <3 the sandwich/soup-ette hors d'oerves and the grilled cheese croutons, I want to make those SO badly right now. The vegan grilled cheese is quite interesting too, almost makes me think of you are making a sort of hummus but not, still looks/sounds yummy though.
