If you hadn’t heard by now, October was American Cheese Month. Unfortunately, I was a little late to the party, my life was all over the place, but it doesn’t mean I didn’t celebrate. And celebrate I did. Thanks to Whole Foods, I was able […]
Recently, I received an email from Whole Foods PR department with the subject of “A cheese worthy of a prince – Royal Addition One-Year-Old Cheddar at Whole Foods Market”. As usual, I just thought it was spam/a come on and nothing really worth reading. Out of pure curiosity, I skimmed the email and that is when I came across this paragraph:
If you are interested in sampling this cheese, I am happy to send you a gift card to purchase on your own or set it aside with the cheesemonger at your local Whole Foods Market.
No, this email was not spam. Whole Foods Corporate sent ME a cheese related email. They wanted to give ME free cheese. Being the free cheese whore that I have become, how could I say no? Plus, the story behind the cheese, described below, is pretty unique/interesting. I couldn’t say no. I didn’t say no.
I was rewarded with a $50 Whole Foods e-gift card to not only purchase the cheese ($9.99/lb) but also any ingredients that I needed for this Royal Cheddar Grilled Cheese. Next step? Visit Whole Foods to shop and concoct an idea for this grilled cheese. (more…)
Over the past week, I had been planning to make a brand new grilled cheese featuring homemade cauliflower puree. However, there was always something that stopped me. Not enough time, too many errands, etc. It all changed on Saturday when us here in Cleveland were […]
My previous grilled cheese, Root Vegetable Fritter Grilled Cheese, definitely pushed the envelope of what a grilled cheese sandwich can and should be. (Some have even said it isn’t a grilled cheese.) For this week’s grilled cheese, I wanted to come back down to Earth and create a more traditional sandwich. That is when I stumbled on hummus as the main ingredient. It came up last week by the sous chef while creating the my Root Vegetable grilled cheese. I obviously didn’t use it last week, but I did this week and it was most definitely a winner. (more…)
Only once previously have I attempted a Fourth of July grilled cheese themed sandwich and it was a Red, White & Blue success. It was creative and unique and I hoped to recreate that success with a new and intriguing grilled cheese this year. I […]
Prior to talking about this particular grilled cheese sandwich, which was very delicious, I want to update the GrilledShane world on a few things.
I know I have said it before, but this is especially true now. I am going to give you, my devoted reader, a bigger insight into the behind the scenes world of trying to grow the GrilledShane brand. I have already started doing this on GrilledShane’s Facebook page, but I also hope to do it more right here on the blog. It may be a short post, but hopefully the audience interested in what is going on with the GrilledShane brand will only increase. I am trying to figure out if I can truly turn the GrilledShane brand into something larger and hope you will join me on the journey. My first step was to join Pinterest. Hopefully you will join me there.
Now for the Tillamook Cheddar Grilled Cheese… (more…)
Since I started this blog, every year I have created a Passover grilled cheese sandwich. Those sandwiches featured various Passover ingredients, such as hard boiled eggs, horseradish and apples. When I started to think about what ingredients I would use in this Passover grilled cheese, […]
