grilled cheese

lunch22111 (2) Been seeing tweets about grilled cheese sandwiches so one day for lunch I made a grilled cheese with pesto sandwich.

Brushed on olive oil and "grilled" it in my non-stick pan.

It went nicely with some leftover ginger potato soup.

lunch22511 And then my friend, Deb, posted a review of a grilled cheese cookbook.

One of the recipes she tried from it was a kim chee-se sandwich (great name, yeah??)

I didn't have Gouda nor ham as the recipe she tried recommends, so I just grilled my sandwich with the cheese slice I had with some kim chee.

So good with some instant pumpkin soup.

What have you been enjoying for lunch?

Grilled Cheese sandwich sounds good!! I like mine with a bit of chilli powder or for breakfast with bacon and tomato.

I have just had some Ten-don (tempura on rice) for lunch and it was fantastic. I love making Ten-don and tempura at home with fresh seasonal veggies.

Both sandwiches look great--I'm glad you liked the "kim cheese" one. ;-) It had your name all over it when I was making it!

There's a lunchwagon here called Melt that makes awesome grilled cheese sandwiches.

Ten-don is delicious especially when you use fresh veggies J-A :)

I knew I had to make it after reading your post Deb in Hawaii :)

I've heard Jalna, it is on my list to visit next time I'm home :)

Take care everyone.

Cheese must be on people's minds now...I've been eyeballing a recipe for salt beef to make salt beef and bagel sandwiches, but then I pic with salt beef on rye bread with sauerkraut and mustard and the whole thing was smothered in melted emmenthal! Insane!!! Not sure if the links will work but THIS is what I want for lunch.

I like grilled cheese sandwiches with some New England clam chowder on a cold day.

Check out the recipe in the LA Times for a Grilled Cantal Cheese with Shallots that also sounds really yummy. Now, where can we find Cantal cheese? ...

K and S said...

PB, wouldn't you know I found some online...here.

Take care.
