Someone mentions “grilled cheese” and you cannot help but to feel as emotionally gooey inside as the sandwich’s main ingredient. Kids and adults alike get comfort from grilled cheese sandwiches. They just seem to make the day a little brighter.
As kids (and as adults when we get busy!), we kept it pretty simple – a few slices of cheese inside bread, and maybe the long shot of tomato soup on the side. But this was enough. We had achieved the goal – a comforting, delicious and melty mess.
With going dairy free or vegan, many of us gave up the dream of cheese and relented that the simple joys of comfort food like grilled cheeses were never more. But now – thanks to culinary genius – not only can we enjoy them, we can evolve them and allow our taste buds to travel the globe by adding a variety of different ingredients! So grab your grilled cheese passport and check out these ideas:
