Chevremousse – Whipped Goat Cheese

Chevremousse – Whipped Goat Cheese

Yesterday, I had no plans to make a grilled cheese. No plans to buy any special cheeses. No plans to make a special grilled cheese sandwich. That was until I stopped at Heinen’s to pick up some bagels so I could have an egg/cheese/bagel sandwich […]

Chili Mayo & Jalapeno Cabot Grilled Cheese

Chili Mayo & Jalapeno Cabot Grilled Cheese

A few weeks ago, I received an email from Cabot asking me if I would like to try their “Light” cheeses as they are in the process of rolling out new packaging. I thought about it for a split second and then replied saying, in […]

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!

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!

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.

Strawberries & Orange Vinaigrette Grilled Cheese

In a tribute to Valentine’s Day, I had to create a grilled cheese sandwich with strawberries, a main ingredient of the holiday. Last year, I went with a strawberry/mango grilled cheese, so this year I had to switch it up just a bit. I kept […]

“Kicked Up” Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

Yes, I have been gone for awhile. Yes, I have missed you. (Have you missed me?) Yes, I am back. Yes, this grilled cheese was very yummy! I would go into where I have been (Jewish holidays, birthdays, etc.), but I don’t want to bore you. Plus, I don’t think anyone came here to read about my life story, you just want to know about this great grilled cheese, featuring “kicked up” Goat Cheese. Right? Right. (more…)
