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 […]

Recently, I had taken a break from grilled cheese sandwiches as culinary classes were winding down for the semester and I wanted to focus on my studies. I had a final practicum consisting of knife skills and recipe, as well as a country presentation. Oh and the final. Thankfully, I can say I have completed […]

I was not planning on cooking a grilled cheese this week as I have a big quiz on Wednesday and needed to study. However, on Saturday at Whole Foods, I noticed that they had a three year aged Gouda on sale for $9.99 lb, originally $16.99 ea. I couldn’t resist. I haven’t used Gouda much, so […]

A week ago the folks and I traveled to the great city of Pittsburgh and the Strip District for a min-vacation. For the first time, I went to the Strip with grilled cheese on the mind. With many bakeries selling fresh out of the oven bread, it was a perfect place to purchase bread for […]

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 and made the problem go away (for now). With the […]

When The Christian Science Monitor volunteered to send me a copy of Laura Werlin‘s new grilled cheese cookbook, grilled cheese please, in turn for a review, I asked where do I sign. Seemed like a no brainer to me. The last time I wrote a book review was probably sometime in grade school for some […]

Every Friday, Whole Foods has a different special deal that is good only for that day. This past week, it was buy one get one free on a special brand of pasta/tomato sauce. I was real excited, as I thought I could use this pasta sauce as a dipping for my next grilled cheese sandwich. […]

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 […]

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 I am still not sure I know now, weeks after. […]

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 until now, I had always bought my bread. The only […]
