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 […]

Russ Parsons & SippitySup’s Mushroom Quesadilla

Russ Parsons & SippitySup’s Mushroom Quesadilla

The minute I stumbled on SippitySup’s Say Cheese-Creative Quesadillas Have Arrived entry (& Russ Parsons’ article), I knew that this would be my next “grilled cheese” to try. I had already established that quesadillas are in fact grilled cheese sandwiches so I was free to […]

Goat Milk Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Goat Milk Cheddar Grilled Cheese

No great ideas came to mind when thinking of a new grilled cheese recipe so I traveled to Whole Foods for some inspiration. There, I of course found the goat milk cheddar but I also found some great bread. From there, I decided that I would go with a simple grilled cheese with a bit of flair. When sticking with one dish for so long, it is always good to go back to the basics, even if they are spiced up a bit. Plus, sometimes father prefers the simple. (more…)

Halloumi & Portobello Grilled Cheese

Halloumi & Portobello Grilled Cheese

Normally, this is where I talk about this grilled cheeses cheese (Halloumi) but this week is special and I must first give an update on my life. I don’t write too much about my personal life and instead focus only on my grilled cheese sandwiches. […]

Broccoli & Cauliflower Grilled Cheese

Broccoli & Cauliflower Grilled Cheese

Yesterday, I googled broccoli cauliflower puree, hoping to find great inspiration for the evening’s grilled cheese. However, the 3rd result was for the exact opposite: Broccoli and Cauliflower Puree :: 6–9 Months – Baby Recipes…. I never thought that a couple of the search results would be for baby food! I did not want to make dinner for my nephew, so I avoided all of those links. (more…)

Tofu Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Tofu Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Although it was July 4th weekend, and I did create a patriotic grilled cheese for Memorial Day, I stayed away from the USA this weekend and instead went with Tofu. Tofu is extremely American, right? Ever since sometime last week, I got it in my […]

Stuffed French Toast

Stuffed French Toast

Every once and awhile, I decide to invite some college friends up for a weekend of fun and excitement. This past weekend everyone visited just so they could eat one of my world famous grilled cheese sandwiches. Well, maybe not exactly, but I do like […]

Sunday Dinners: Just the beginning.

Sunday Dinners: Just the beginning.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved grilled cheese sandwiches. Also, ever since I can remember, I have loved to cook. Put the two together and you have one happy Shane. In order to broaden my horizons, I have taken those two ideas and created Sunday Dinners. Every Sunday night, I will create a grilled cheese concotion, taste and then rate. This way I will be able to experience with new ingredients such as various cheeses and breads. I hope this will begin to enhance my culinary knowledge.

Tonight, being the inaugural evening, I went with something simple. The ingredients are not totally out of this world or even weird for a grilled cheese but they are good together. As mentioned, in the future, I will branch out and try other ingredients, some that people may not think of to use on a grilled cheese.

ingredients:

  • White Cheddar Cheese
  • Homemade Basil Pesto
  • Homemade Sundried Tomatoes
  • Sourdough Bread

grilled cheese grade: B+

Overall, I would definitely say that tonight was a good first effort. There is room for improvement, including simply perfecting the cooking method for the grilled cheese. I believe that the bread was too buttery/greasy and one side was over-cooked while the other was cooked perfectly. We were rushed, so that does factor into the equation, but hopefully in the future we will have more time.

In the future I hope to give a better, more thorough description, including photos, but for now, I will just leave you with this final grade. Thanks for reading, I hope you check back next Sunday for another edition of Sunday Dinners.
