They say necessity is the mother of invention. How did necessity invent this sandwich you ask? Well one day after work, with bacon in my fridge and sandwiches on my mind, I was finding a BLT VERY necessary. Now here comes the gut wrenching twist…
I had no lettuce.

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?

I’m back again! This time with the second instalment in my portobello series, the Breakfast Portobello. Prior to this past month, I hadn’t done much cooking with portobello mushrooms, so I enjoyed creating some interesting and delicious ways to serve them up. I will definitely be cooking with them more often and hope you guys do too!

This is now the third version of dill pickle soup I have tried, first I made this Dill Pickle Soup, then I tried the Hoodoo Dill Pickle Soup, which was amazing but extremely high in fat and calories due to the fact that it’s basically just whipping cream with pickle brine in it. So for my third time, I attempted to find a healthy middle ground between the two versions, while still getting that nice rich flavour from the Hoodoo recipe.
How about another risotto everybody!? Now this certainly isn’t your typical risotto, it’s made to be more of an oatmeal/porridge styled meal, but it is soooo good! Here is the recipe that I sort of followed, but had to slightly modify as usual.

Before eating this creation, I never thought of quinoa to be a breakfast food, to me it was just a salad adder or rice replacement. But long behold it can be quite delicious for breakfast!! This early morning meal is hearty, packed with healthy options and seems very ‘fall-like’ to me! To make things even quicker in the morning, I made the quinoa the night before and tossed in the ‘extras’ in the morning! Don’t be afraid to alter this recipe to your taste, adding more fruit and nuts, other spices, etc. Remember, it’s your breakfast!! Let’s get to the recipe:
