Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese

Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese

I must start this post with sincerest apologies to Cabot. I don’t even know when at this point, but Cabot sent me a pack of cheese, including their Everything Bagel Cheddar. Ever since, I had wanted to make an Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese. I was intrigued. I was seriously intrigued. Then, time got away from […]

St. Patricks Day Kale & Potato Grilled Cheese

St. Patrick’s Day Kale & Potato Grilled Cheese

When an Irish creamery sends you a ton of free cheese and butter in late February/early March, it is their way of telling you, use their product to create a St. Patrick’s Day grilled cheese. It is a no-brainer in my opinion and that is exactly what I did. A couple weeks ago, as evidenced […]

Cauliflower Purée & Cabot Grilled Cheese

Cauliflower Puree & Cabot Grilled Cheese

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 snowed in. With whiteout conditions, I obviously wasn’t going anywhere, […]

Kerrygold Cashel Blue Grilled Cheese

Kerrygold Cashel Blue Grilled Cheese

With more Kerrygold coupons burning a hole in my pocket, and my discovery of Kerrygold Cashel Blue cheese, I thought it was time to make one more Kerrygold grilled cheese creation. With the sous chef and myself recently purchasing two different kinds of quiche, I thought why not try and make my own unique grilled […]

Thomas Jefferson, Caramel Apple, Bacon Brie, Caramelized Onion, and Much More

Grilled Cheese Roundup: Thomas Jefferson, Caramel Apple, Bacon Brie, Caramelized Onion, and Much More

Another, somewhat longer, installation of the Grilled Cheese Roundup. Hope you enjoy, especially because somehow Thomas Jefferson and cheese are mentioned in the same sentence! Thomas Jefferson & Cheese (courtesy Parmesan.com) A case could be made that one of the American founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, helped popularize Italy’s Parmesan cheese in America. It seems likely […]

Avocado Spread & Alfalfa Sprouts Grilled Cheese

Avocado Spread & Alfalfa Sprouts Grilled Cheese

Inspiration for my grilled cheese creations can come from the strangest places. This week was no exception. At Jimmy John’s, a sub place I am known to frequent, they have a vegetarian sub that I love. (#6 for those that have been to Jimmy John’s. I order it on multigrain.) As their menu reads: Layers of provolone […]

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 tried. Way back, I had thought of creating a mashed […]

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 […]

Roasted Garlic & Tomato Grilled Cheese

Roasted Garlic & Tomato Grilled Cheese

Recently, I have felt like my grilled cheese sandwiches have been missing something. They have not been as creative or unique as they could be. With this grilled cheese, I tried to turn the tide, even if it doesn’t appear to be that elaborate. As is the case lately, I was standing in Whole Foods […]

Deconstructed Grilled Cheese

Deconstructed Grilled Cheese

I had two ideas for this week’s grilled cheese: Fettuccine Alfredo and deconstructed. Since the Alfredo grilled cheese did not sound healthy in the least (and I ended up making something similar down the road), I decided to go with deconstructed. (Also, my friend Jeremy suggested that I go with deconstructed and he has yet […]
