Balsamic Drizzled Mixed Greens Grilled Cheese

Finally, I have returned with a new grilledshane original creation. Sure, I flirted with a sandwich that highlighted an awesome local cheese, but it has been forever since I actually created a new grilledshane original. It was time. It was definitely time. I haven’t truly made a new grilled cheese since I made ~95 in a […]

Glazed Carrots & Edamame Grilled Cheese

The time has come. The cat is out of the bag. My secret has been revealed. My [new] boss now knows my true identity: GrilledShane. Not only is she interested but is also extremely impressed.

Butternut Squash & Pumpkin Bread Grilled Cheese

I have only created one Thanksgiving grilled cheese sandwich in the three plus years of this blog. I wanted to change that this year. After my 2009 creation, Pumpkin Pie Grilled Cheese, I had a lot to live up to. I had to make this grilled cheese bigger and better. I had to think far outside […]

As I previously mentioned, the family traveled to West Side Market, where we purchased multigrain bread and I made an awesome Smoked Cheddar Grilled Cheese.

I begin this entry with a riddle: Name a blue food that is not a blueberry, blue M&M or blue corn tortilla chip… …. Did I give you enough time? Need some more? Think of any? Yeah, didn’t think so. Blue foods are a rarity. Unfortunately for the USA, it is included in our awesome […]

Daiya Vegan Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Daiya Vegan Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Thanks to the assistance and suggestions of the sous chef and new sous chef jr., I decided this week I would go out on a limb and try dairy-free cheese, or in this case, vegan Cheddar cheese. Now, you are probably as confused by those three words as I was. How on earth can cheese, […]
