CEiMB: Sweet & Spicy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


This one is only one week late – that’s not so bad, right?

Sorry for my lack of posting lately. You would think that six weeks at my new job and two weeks with the new puppy would be enough time to get settled, yet I come home every afternoon completely exhausted. I have regularly been taking pictures of my recipes and editing them; I just haven’t set aside time for actual blogging.

Anyway, last Thursday Leslie of Lethally Delicious was the host for CEiMB, and her choice was Sweet & Spicy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I was so excited because Rachel ♥s grilled cheese!

This recipe is actually very similar to my regular grilled cheese sandwich – I always use two types of cheese, add tomato, and use cooking spray instead of butter. The only real difference this time was the addition of sautéed red onion, which I found gave the sandwiches a really nice flavor. I also enjoyed the spicy kick from the pepper jack cheese.

I served this for dinner with tomato soup for myself and salad for Scott. We both enjoyed this meal, however Scott requested that next time we have these sandwiches for lunch instead of dinner.

Thanks to Leslie for choosing a great twist on a classic. Also, congratulations to her for her recent one year blogiversary!

I really liked the onion on the sandwich as well, but I'm not sure I would always go through the trouble of cooking up the onions. I did really like the cheddar and pepperjack cheeses together though - that part is a definite keeper!

In lieu of actual blogging, you could always just post cute puppy pictures :)

Glad you were able to make these, they were so tasty, and the onions were a nice change up.

I'm not sure if I would cook the onions every time either. I don't mind taking the time to do it, but I don't like for my house to smell like them when I'm finished! :)
