Let this mark the beginning of our month long ode to the almighty Grilled Cheese! As part of National Grilled Cheese Month (possibly the best month ever), we are going to be posting a new grilled cheese EVERY DAY, yes you read that right! Every day tune-in to BS’ in the Kitchen and treat your visual tastebuds to some amazing new grilled cheeses (and THEY WILL be amazing!).
To start things off I present the Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese, all the classic flavours of a smoked salmon bagel, with some Gruyere cheese, grilled to perfection! And when I say perfection, I mean it! This sandwich/bagel was amazing! I don’t even like smoked salmon that much, but it paired really well with the Gruyere cheese, I couldn’t get enough! You get the crisp exterior of the bagel, a smooth, creamy layer of cream cheese, a subtle bite from the red onion mixed in with the smokey, nutty flavour from the salmon and Gruyere. Then every couple of bites, there is a burst of pickled-vinegary flavour from the capers and a fresh bite of dill. The ingredients balanced each other so well and made for one unreal grilled cheese!

I’ve been feeling guilty lately.
Guilty because it has been A LOOONG time since i’ve gone to the gym (which I used to do regularly), and guilty because my blogging output has been pitiful the last couple months.
With big intentions to go to the gym today, I got home from work to find this delicious looking focaccia bread on my counter. This is where my resolutions fail me.
Food blogger guilt takes over.

While I’m an avid fan of pork chops, I can still fall victim to the common problem of overcooking them! Fortunately this is where brining comes into play. Having never actually brined something, I was looking forward to the results and decided to go with a fairly simple brine.

I’ve been designing this burger in my head for a while and after running a 10km race this morning, I decided that it would be a great choice to make this healthy burger – you know, to stay with the healthy kick and all. It’s easy to make which is also a great choice. All together, the flavours really compliment each other – the portobello mushroom adds good depth and flavour, while the avocado adds a smooth buttery flavour. So let’s get to this recipe because I know you’re hungry! Continue reading

I tried a similar wrap like this at a local little bistro and thought it was quite fabulous. It also seemed relatively easy to replicate so I decided to give it a spin and I must say that I was rather successful. This wrap is fresh, light, full of flavour, healthy, yet surprisingly filling – but best of all, incredibly easy to make! So let’s get to this recipe so we can all stop drooling. Continue reading
With April coming to an end, It saddens me to announce the end of National Grilled Cheese Month… Let us all take a moment of silence.
Now that our respects have been paid, I present my final grilled cheese of the month. The Egg in a Hole Breakfast Grilled Cheese.

Let’s start off by saying WOOOOOOWWW. This latest grilled cheese creation is absolutely amazing and dare I say the best one yet?? First off, I grilled it on the barbecue, so that alone is a game changer, and second, it contains amazing ingredients from my previous grilled cheeses like potatoes, chives and caramelized onions, but adds juicy steak and provolone cheese into the mix! Seriously, this is like a steak sandwich on steroids! The idea came about while at work, as I was discussing my next grilled cheese prospect with my co-worker and friend of many years, Brett T. I had decided my next creation was going to be a barbecued grilled cheese, when Brett threw it out there…STEAK & POTATO GRILLED CHEESE.
The room was silent.
Not really…But I knew this was going down as soon as possible. The wheels started turning as I began envisioning how this behemoth of a grilled/BBQ’d cheese sandwich was going to come together, here is what I came up with.

I made this grilled cheese a while ago and just haven’t gotten around to posting it, but since it’s NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE DAY (Probably the best day ever?!?) I couldn’t not post a grilled cheese! Now this one is quite different from anything I have done in the past, with my super hearty and savoury grilled cheese such as the Baked Potato Grilled Cheese. I am personally more a fan of those ones, but I enjoyed switching it up with this one! What are your guys thoughts?

Introducing the French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese!!
I have had this idea for quite some time and was originally going to make it when the Caramelized Onion & Mushroom Brie Grilled Cheese was birthed, as I had bought the ingredients, but couldn’t find Gruyere cheese at my grocery store. With my afternoon off and Gruyere in my fridge, I knew this was happening! Now I don’t expect everybody to make French Onion Soup every time they want this grilled cheese (which could be often!), so I whipped this up separately even though I made my French Onion Soup at the same time. Of course if you did make French Onion Soup, you could just take some onions from that and make this grilled cheese!
