Stacks of smoked meat.
Layers of melted cheese curds.
Mustard smeared rye bread.
It’s a Montreal smoked meat sandwich on steroids (a.k.a. with cheese). Juicy smoked meat, rich, salty cheese curds, paired with lots of tangy mustard, sandwiched between two pieces of crunchy rye bread, I’ll be tasting this one for days! I sat there like a proud Canadian would, devouring this sandwich in my plaid flannel shirt, and YES I even spilled mustard on it! It was a glorious moment, and though I have not an inch of French in me, I proudly ate this Montreal inspired meat and cheese fest!

Another killer grilled cheese to report here! After buying some tuna for another recipe, it dawned on me that I could take the classic tuna melt, give it my signature twist and turn it into an amazing grilled cheese! And oh boy, was it delicious! Gruyere and cheddar holding it down on the outside, mixed with salty dill pickle, crunchy celery, a bite of fresh dill and green onion here and there, all surrounding the main attraction: Seared Tuna. Toss out your dry flaky canned tuna, there is a new sheriff in town! You’re still getting your beloved flaky tuna, but now it’s nice and moist, flaking off from around the juicy, tender, rare center of your tuna steak. Talk about gourmet grilled cheese!

It seems like its been an eternity since I last posted a grilled cheese recipe, and with JC100 behind us, I’m finally getting back to regular blogging (a.k.a. MORE GRILLED CHEESE!). As mentioned in a previous post, I spent some time at my girlfriend Megan’s family cabin in BC, relaxing and eating lots during the September long weekend. Naturally, conversation drifted towards grilled cheese at some point during our stay, and Megan’s younger cousin Kasane mentioned she always puts pickles in her grilled cheese sandwiches!
Why had I not done this before?? I’ve enjoyed pickles and cheese on several occasions, but never thought to put them in a grilled cheese! This all changed very quickly, as I later made one for Megan, and we both agreed it was a wonderful combination! So here it is folks:

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.
Now here is an interesting recipe, Dill Pickle Soup! I understand that the first reaction for most people is that of disgust, but I assure you it is quite delicious!
I was intrigued to try this recipe after Vince and Cathy Orr came back from their trip to Fairmont and told me of the Dill Pickle Soup they had tried at Hoodoo Lounge & Grill. At first I tried to find the same recipe used at the restaurant but had no luck, so I tried this one and crossed my fingers that it was the same.
