What needs to be said about this one? They have chili cheese fries, chili cheese dogs, chili cheese nachos, so the next logical step (at least for me) is a Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese! Plenty of hearty chili, loads of cheese, sandwiched between two buttery slices of bread.

Many of my grilled cheese creations stem from deconstructing a traditional dish, and turning it into a sandwich format (because sandwiches are simply the best!). For this one, I took my inspiration from the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu, a dish where chicken is stuffed with ham and swiss cheese, and often covered with a creamy sauce. Now you can enjoy this savoury meal between your fingertips instead of with fork and knife!
Now I’m no authority on Philly Cheese Steaks, I haven’t had many in my life, but I must admit to fantasizing about those delicious things on more than one occasion. Plenty of meat, cheese, caramelized onions, and whatever you may want to add on to it! A sandwich after my own heart! Or just a sandwich trying to stop my own heart…
Well folks, my intentions were good, I really wanted to focus on posting more regularly, and then I failed!! I have been doing a fair amount of cooking and taking pictures for the blog, but I just haven’t taken the time to actually blog the recipes! This all changes right now, because it’s that time of the year again! NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE MONTH! Perhaps you remember the epic celebration we had on the blog last year, doing a new grilled cheese recipe every day. If not, last years video will certainly jog your memory!
I hate to break it to you guys, but this year I’m not going to be doing quite an epic celebration of grilled cheese. Fortunately, I have a few recipes that I have been saving for this month, so I’m excited to share them with you all finally! Let’s start it off!
It’s that time of year again. Christmas! It’s also time for another BS’ in the Kitchen cooking segment on CTV Morning Live Saskatoon. Given that it is Christmas time, it was only appropriate to do something fitting of the season.
I was first introduced to strata by my girlfriend, whose Mom makes a large one for breakfast every Christmas morning. Being that I’m swamped with work, I really didn’t have time to think up some elaborate Christmas themed recipe, instead opting for a delicious dish that could be easily and quickly made for either a group breakfast, or even as an appetizer! So here you go, Mini Breakfast Strata! It is super delicious!
Here is a recipe that just makes sense! Taking traditional spaghetti and meat sauce, but swapping the pasta for squash. I apologize in advance to those who like very specific recipes. I made meat sauce the previous night and used the leftover sauce when making this, so i’m estimating the measurements, but hey! It’s a meat sauce. If you are measuring everything you’re doing it wrong! It’s all about adding in the main component, adding a dash of this, a dash of that, tasting, adjusting, and enjoying!
The Breakfast Pizza – the end of a trilogy! This also marks the 4th day in a row that I have eaten pizza. I can’t complain though, pizza is a wonderfully balanced meal in my eyes (and stomach)!
I figured it was time to try making a breakfast pizza, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Not only did it gift my nostrils with the pleasant aroma of my breakfast favourites, the flavour was wonderful! Combining breakfast classics onto thin, airy pizza crust, how could you go wrong? Well you can’t! Unless you burn it of course…
Continuing on with the pizza and pesto of the previous posts, here is a pizza stacked with some awesome flavours! Delicious fresh pesto, juicy mushrooms, savoury red onion, finished off with the smokey flavour of creamy smoked gouda! A pizza that not only looks great, but tastes awesome too!
For whatever reason, this week just felt like a pizza week, but truth-be-told, every week could be pizza week because that stuff is freakin’ amazing! Especially with this ridiculously easy pizza dough recipe. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make (maybe less).
For this pizza I decided to keep it simple and go with a classic margherita style pizza with tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, topped off with a sprinkle of salt! So simple, so good!
This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right?
Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza dough, I use a portobello mushroom! Low-carb and delicious, not that I particularly care about low-carb, but I DO care about delicious!
