20 Mind-Blowingly Delicious Grilled Cheese Recipes You Must Not Miss

20 Mind-Blowingly Delicious Grilled Cheese Recipes You Must Not Miss

Those of you familiar with my writing (or who have spoken with me for more than 2 minutes) already know that I’m a little obsessed with cheese. And by “a little” I mean “will probably name my first child ‘Camembert.'” As such, there are very few things I take more pleasure in than a grilled cheese sandwich. Some poor, misguided people think that this is a relatively boring thing to get excited about. Clearly, they’ve never tried getting decadent with their cheesy creations.

Here are just a few ideas on how you can make your next grilled cheese the meal of a lifetime.

1. Persimmon, Prosciutto and Brie Grilled Cheese

    This is a match made in heaven. Both prosciutto and brie work beautifully with sweet, fruity flavours, which makes it the perfect match for persimmons. You could also switch them out for a quince paste or something similar.

    2. Taco Grilled Cheese


      Recipe Source

      Yes, we Mexi-CAN! The only thing wrong with this is the distinct lack of taco shells between the bread. I would definitely add them, and maybe a few corn chips. I’m not even close to joking.

      3. Parmesan Crusted Pesto Grilled Cheese

        A simple variation, but a fresh and delicious one. This can be made all the better if you grow your own herbs.

        4. Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese

          Pasta and bread, together at last!

          5. Lasagna Grilled Cheese


            Recipe Source

            If the mac and cheese sandwich was too dull for you, smash some lasagna on your grilled cheese like the champion you are. Admittedly, it’s more like a ‘lasagna flavoured’ grilled cheese, but I encourage you to just use some leftovers instead. I don’t think an ordinary sandwich loaf would cut it though. You’re going to need a bigger bread boat.

            6. Double Bacon Cheeseburger Grilled Cheese

              Why choose between and sandwich and a burger when you can have the best of both worlds? I’m legitimately drooling right now.

              7. Short Rib Grilled Cheese

                I was drooling before, but now I have a river escaping my mouth. I think I may need to build an ark. Succulent ribs with melted cheese–can life get any better?

                8. Chipotle Chicken Grilled Cheese

                  Chipotle is so tasty. Recently, it feels like I’ve been adding it to everything so, naturally, I highly approve of its addition to grilled cheese.

                  9. Roast Turkey, Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese

                    Recipe Source

                    You no longer have to wonder about using up all of those Thanksgiving leftovers!

                    10. Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, and Muenster Grilled Cheese on Soft Pretzel

                      Recipe Source

                      This one’s for those of you who love tasty, tasty German food.

                      11. Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

                        Recipe Source

                        Bacon, cheese, and avocado together is the best combination.

                        12. BBQ Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

                        Advertising


                          Recipe Source

                          Sweet and tangy slow-cooked pork mixed with cheese? Can I get a “Hell, yeah”?

                          13. Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

                            Recipe Source

                            Once you pop, you can’t stop.

                            14. French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese

                              Recipe Source

                              Taking the best part of French onion soup, and shoving it between some bread, is nothing short of pure genius.

                              15. Baked Potato Grilled Cheese

                                Recipe Source

                                This recipe exists because grilled cheese obviously needs even more carbs.

                                16. Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

                                  Recipe Source

                                  Please excuse me while I pass out from flavour overload.

                                  17. Vegetarian Grilled Cheese

                                    Recipe Source

                                    Because grilled cheese doesn’t require meat to be delicious.

                                    18. Dulche de Leche and Mascarpone Grilled Cheese

                                      Recipe Source

                                      didn’t think that grilled cheese was confined to the realms of lunch and dinner, did you? This gorgeous caramel sensation will blow your mind, as well as make the perfect dessert, or even breakfast.

                                      19. Dark Chocolate, Raspberry and Brie Grilled Cheese

                                        Recipe Source

                                        Are you more of a chocolate fan?

                                        20. Brie and Blueberry Waffle Grilled Cheese

                                          Recipe Source

                                          Yeah, you did just read that correctly. Who needs bread when you can use waffles!? I would also recommend bagels, as an alternative.

                                          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                          8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                                          We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                                          On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                                          Advertising

                                          Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                                          1. Smart Door Locks

                                          A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                                          2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                                          Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                                          3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                                          If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                                          4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                                          These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                                          5. Nest Thermostat

                                          This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                                          6. Smart Lighting

                                          Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                                          7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                                          Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                                          8. Canary

                                          This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
