White Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

There’s a scene in the movie Chef where the star, Jon Favreau, makes a grilled cheese sandwich. It was the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Perfectly toasted on both sides. And it crunched, oh how it crunched, when he sliced it. I have to admit, I’m still working on my grilled cheese toasting skills. But I sure do enjoy a great grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. These white pizza grilled cheese sandwiches have a great pizza-ish herby flavor to them, with ooey-gooey melted mozzarella and a little Parmesan to boot. Very good, and a little different.

White Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I prefer to use Texas toast for my grilled sandwiches. It holds up and holds up well to just about anything you want to pile up on it. No one likes a grilled cheese that just dissolves once you get past the crust. Nope, you need a bread that will be there till the end, and for me that’s Texas toast. Oh, and I love to make smoked paprika and garlic croutons out of any leftover pieces of Texas toast I might have.

The Griddler is a champ at making grilled cheese sandwiches, like my muffuletta grilled cheese, grilled caramel apply cheese, grilled spinach and artichoke cheese, and pepperoni pizza grilled cheese.

Crab Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Grilled cheese sandwiches aren’t uncommon in our household, not at all. They’re easy and good and that’s all you can ask for. But, sometimes I just gotta mix things up. Not crazy mix things up, but crazy good mix things up. The filling in these crab grilled cheese sandwiches is just like a good crab salad. It just needs a little ‘help’, and that comes in the form of melted oooey gooey Swiss cheese on crispy golden bread. A nice crunch then creamy salad and cheese. Perfect.

Crab Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

The crab salad inside these crab grilled cheese sandwiches is actually quite good and simple. It’d also be perfect inside appetizer sandwiches. Ya know, the fancy ones they serve at teas.

I used my Cuisinart Griddler to make these sandwiches.

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I often do ‘theme weeks’ when it comes to dinners, and sometimes lunches. A recent theme was Buffalo chicken. I love the flavor of traditional Buffalo chicken wings, so I figured I’d make a large batch of chicken breasts flavored the same way. I cooked the Buffalo chicken on my Char-Broil Big Easy, but any Buffalo chicken will do. After it was cooked, I shredded the meat, added a bit more wing sauce, and got to making a week’s worth of great Buffalo chicken-flavored dishes, like this Buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich.

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Every great thing about Buffalo chicken is in this grilled cheese sandwich, from the sides of carrots and celery, to blue cheese crumbles. They cook up oooey gooey, and have that great Buffalo chicken kick. I could eat these sandwiches all day long. You can make the chicken mixture ahead of time. Then you only the time it takes to assemble and toss in a hot skillet. Lunch in just minutes!

I’m pretty sure that the Cuisinart Griddler was made specifically for making this sandwich and others like it. You can use a skillet instead, sure. But for easiness, you can’t beat the Griddler!

These sandwiches are great along with my Buffalo chicken soup.

Pretzel Grilled Bacon and Cheese Sandwiches

I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich. But, after visiting the Der Pretzel Wagen food truck here in Indianapolis a few days earlier and grabbing an outrageously good pretzel sandwich (The Ham Solo, is my favorite), I was also jonesin’ for a pretzel. I’m always jonesin’ for a pretzel. So, I decided to combine the two desires into a very easy sandwich. Pretzel ‘bun’, melty gooey cheese, crispy bacon, and a bit of Dijon mustard. These pretzel grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches are easy to make, and quite tasty. They make for a delicious lunch time treat!

Pretzel Grilled Bacon and Cheese Sandwiches

I didn’t go the fancy route. I used frozen pre-made pretzels. Heck, I’ve tried to make my own pretzels and I can’t. And American cheese. My pretzel grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches are good enough to hold me over until I can get back to Der Pretzel Wagen food truck for one of their pretzel sandwiches!

Update: Sadly, Der Pretzel Wagen is no longer open for business! I sure do miss their food. Hopefully they’ll come back some day.

To get the cheese all ooey-gooey I tossed the sandwiches on a hot Griddler for a few minutes.

Also try my delicious fried bologna sandwich.

Mushroom Grilled Cheese

I’m going to have a hard time ever eating any other kind of grilled cheese sandwich after devouring these mushroom grilled cheese sandwiches. They are incredible. Creamy, gooey cheese. And the best part, sauteed, earthy mushrooms. Absolutely fantastic.

Mushroom Grilled Cheese

It takes a bit of time to make these sandwiches. You can’t rush it since you want the onions to be soft and golden. Remember that you want the cheese to be melted and you just can’t rush that. Your efforts will be rewarded.

I like to cook these mushroom grilled cheese sandwiches on my Cuisinart Griddler. It does sandwiches like nobody’s business.

Grilled Grilled Cheese

Who doesn’t love a great, gooey grilled cheese sandwich? I’ve been making them for years, just like everyone else. And I really hadn’t thought of doing something different to them. But then, I came across this recipe from Alton Brown.

Grilled Grilled Cheese

Sure, there’s creamy gooey cheese involved. And there’s even a grill involved (though you could make these in a skillet on the stove top, they’re extra good cooked on a griddle on a grill). But the real game changers for me were the addition of ground mustard and smoked paprika. Wow.

This is just an excellent sandwich. Also try my mushroom grilled cheese.

Spicy Grilled Cheese

I work from home, and with all the food I end up cooking through the week, I usually heat up some leftovers for lunch. Sometimes, though, no leftovers are to be found. That’s when I like to throw together a quick meal, like a grilled cheese sandwich. No need for it to be just cheese and bread, though. I throw on a little tomato and jalapeno and all is good in the world again. Done in minutes this spicy grilled cheese is and nice and different. With a kick.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 4 slices Texas toast
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 1 Roma tomato seeded, chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno seeded, minced

Instructions

  • Heat large skillet over medium heat.
  • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  • Lay two slices of bread butter-side down in the skillet. Top each with one slice of cheese. Divide the tomato and jalapeno between the bread slices and top with remaining cheese.
  • If your skillet is large enough, lay the remaining bread slices butter-side down into the skillet. This prevents you from having to flip the sandwiches to brown them on both sides. Bad things can sometimes happen when you flip a sandwich! But, if you’re a good flipper, put the remaining bread on top of the sandwiches, butter-side out.
  • Cook until bread is nice and browned. Flip when ready and brown on other side if you aren’t cooking the top slices separately. Otherwise, top the sandwiches with the cooked top slices.
  • Serve hot and gooey.

Muffuletta Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I love olive salad. I could probably eat muffuletta sandwiches any day, every day. It takes a bit of work, but I prefer my homemade olive salad. But, if time is of the essence, I take no shame in using a great, quality store-bought olive salad like the one from Boscoli. Putting olive salad on a grilled cheese sandwich seemed like not only a good idea, but a great idea. Muffuletta grilled cheese sandwich? Yes!

Muffuletta Grilled Cheese Sandwich

You can use sliced provolone, but for really big extra flavor, use our smoked provolone cheese sauce instead. It makes for an amazing, oeey-gooey muffuletta grilled cheese sandwich.

So, the question is… do you flatten your grilled cheese? Many say it’s not a grilled cheese unless you press down on it and make it super thin. I like mine thick. Sorry 🙂

Smoked Pot Roast

I read somewhere that you’re not supposed to say “This is the best thing that I ever ate” on a food show or on a food blog. The theory is that well, tomorrow, you might have a better version of the same dish, so then what are you going to say? “This is even better than the best thing I ever ate”? Well, I’m going to violate the rule right here and now and say that this smoked pot roast is the best pot roast I have ever eaten. It’s incredible and it’s tender. It’s juicy and it’s so flavorful. And it has a hint of smoke.

Smoked Pot Roast

You could make this same recipe in the oven, but since you won’t get that great smoke flavor, you’ll need to add a bit (to taste, but not much) of liquid smoke.

We had some leftover pot roast, so I used up the meat in two other great dishes. First, I substituted the pot roast for corned beef on Reuben sandwiches (rye and Thousand Island and kraut).

Then I made grilled smoked pot sandwiches by topping Texas toast with white cheddar and sauteed onions, and of course, pot roast.

Grilled Spinach and Artichoke Cheese Sandwich

After hearing that one of the sandwiches that the Serendipity food truck (sadly, no longer around) serves is based on a spinach and artichoke dip, I took it as a challenge to take my spinach and artichoke dip and make it into a grilled cheese sandwich. And oh, what a happy day it was. This grilled spinach and artichoke cheese sandwich combines a great cheesy dip with grilled sourdough bread. The result is gooey and savory, a perfect change from the ole traditional grilled cheese sandwich. And oh, the bread! The perfect crunchiness to go with the creamy filling!

Grilled Spinach and Artichoke Cheese Sandwich

You’ll want to use a thick, hearty bread for these sandwiches. Thin wimpy white bread isn’t going to cut it. I bought a loaf of sourdough and cut it thick.

I used my Cuisinart Griddler to make these sandwiches. It is a sandwich cooking machine. I love it. I use it for whole bunch of other dishes, too. Like pancakes or waffles. And hamburgers. It’s really a versatile tool to have.
