National Grilled Cheese Day–Gluten-Free Style

Who doesn’t like a cheesy, gooey grilled cheese sandwich?  You may choose to stick with the childhood favorite basic version or venture into more gourmet versions.  There is no better way to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day – April 12th – so here was my lunch:

I had plans to make a Caprese Style Grilled Cheese sandwich, but the basil I bought yesterday had other ideas.  Fortunately I had the ingredients on hand to make a quick change and tossed together a Grilled Turkey & Cheese sandwich using GO Veggie Mexican Style Shreds.

I spread some non-dairy butter spread on my gluten-free bread (Rudi’s Gluten-Free Whole Grain), placed the first piece into the pan and quickly assembled the sandwich so it would get hot and melty on the inside.

Just a little messy…those stray pieces of cheese got crispy and were a nice bonus treat!

The sandwich took less than 10 minutes from start to finish.

    I've never tried a dairy free cheese before. Sure does look like it was melty! Would you believe to add to my list of weird things – I don't like my bread toasted but for some reason – grilled cheese is okay!

  • I'm not much of a grilled cheese adventurer. I pretty much stick to bread and cheese. And I try not to do that very often.

    Your cheese looked like it melted pretty easy. I sometimes have problems with non dairy cheese. So I'm not seeing soy in there. Is it soy free? (We're a soy free household).

    YUM!!!! I love grilled cheese — almost as much as I love mac 'n cheese. What a great GF option! :)
