Quadrello di Bufala Grilled Cheese

Quadrello di Bufala Grilled Cheese

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 […]

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 […]

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 this time. Not this Valentine’s Day. For the first time in my 3+ years of creating and preparing grilled cheese sandwiches, I would make a dessert grilled cheese sandwich, featuring gourmet chocolate. The pressure was on to create something spectacular. I was up to the challenge…even if I still included strawberries. (It was Valentine’s Day after all!) (more…)

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 […]

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 […]

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 not make a tilapia grilled cheese?” My mind was off and running thinking about what cheese, bread and accompanying ingredients would fit perfectly with the fresh tilapia.

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 […]

Spicy Roasted Corn Grilled Cheese

Spicy Roasted Corn Grilled Cheese

I had hoped to create this mango/watercress/hummus grilled cheese for last Sunday, when my father told me he was not a fan of hummus. I was short on time and forced to come up with a new grilled cheese. The local Whole Foods just started having Sunday brunch, and since I was headed into work at 11, the folks and I decided to go. While there, I was trying to devise a plan for that evening’s grilled cheese but my mind was on getting to work on time. With some more thinking (and time), this is what I came up with. (more…)

Caramelized Onions Grilled Cheese

Caramelized Onions Grilled Cheese

After pushing the envelope of what a grilled cheese can be, I decided to tone it down a bit and make a somewhat standard grilled cheese, featuring caramelized onions. The caramelizing process is an easy one, as long as you make sure not to burn […]
