The Perfect Grilled Cheese . . . A classic meal that will never get old.

Now onto the recipe section of my blog!

Nothing beats a grilled cheese sandwich.

This week, I am going to teach you how to make the perfect vegan grilled cheese. My family loves this grilled cheese and prefers it actually rather than using regular cheese! You can also make this gluten free by using gluten free bread. I paired mine with a kale olive oil and vinegar salad.

You will need…

  • 2 pieces of your favourite bread
  • Plant-based butter
  • 1 handful or slice of Earth Islands vegan cheese

How to:

  1. Using your plant- based butter, spread it on one side of your bread, then place the side with the butter on your frying pan on medium heat on the stove top.
  2. Add your slice/handful of cheese on top of your bread.
  3. Butter your second piece of bread on one side, and place your slice on top of your cheese, with the buttered side facing towards you.
  4. Keep your pan on medium heat, waiting 3 to 4 minutes until it starts to turn golden brown.
  5. When desired, flip your creation to grill the other side. This side will only take 1 to 2 minutes as your pan is heated now.
  6. When it is grilled to your liking, add it to your serving plate and enjoy it with a side salad, or just as it is — enjoy!
