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…
I was little frightened when my room-mate Nathan told me I was going to be in charge of cooking something for “Ethnic Potluck 2014″, a potluck with all the kitchen staff from Ayden Kitchen & Bar. Naturally it’s a little intimidating cooking with chefs of that level, and knowing I had to make a dish from another country didn’t help! Fortunately I got Vietnam, which I felt was one of the less intimidating submissions amongst places such as Peru, Croatia, Morocco, & more. After doing some research, given my love of sandwiches, I knew the Banh Mi was the way to go!
With my research and a little consultation from Nathan, I was ready to prepare my feast of Banh Mi! The end result was delicious! Although I have never actually had a Banh Mi, I think I did pretty darn good, and everyone else seemed quite satisfied with my contribution.
In the final round of steak leftovers, I give you one more steak and blue cheese inspired dish! Probably one of the most typical ways to use up leftover steak is in a sandwich of course! This one is pretty much a combination of the last two dishes I posted, but stuck between two slices of bread! Once again using the tangy blue cheese dressing, loading the sandwich with veggies, steak, and even some leftover caramelized onions! YUM!
Let’s start off with some confession time.
Confession: I have never had a lobster roll.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest we can proceed.
I just can’t let go of the daily grilled cheese posts…
Therefore I have decided to do a roundup of my top 5 sandwiches of the month (in no particular order). I also wanted to use this opportunity to help promote an awesome contest being hosted by Wisconsin Cheese’s Grilled Cheese Academy. I have found myself gazing at the amazing grilled cheese sandwiches on their website more than once, and it is with great pain that I am unable to enter any of their contests since I’m Canadian (and there have been a few!). Even though I can’t enter, I hope all you wonderful U.S. readers/grilled cheese lovers will take a moment to check it out. There are some awesome prizes, and they choose 11 winners so your odds are better than most contests!

If anyone has read the About the BS tab on our blog, you may have noticed we have a very German last name. Well our last name actually means “Germaner” or the literal translation would be “German Boy”, so it only seemed fitting that we should honour our heritage with this German Grilled Cheese. Let’s get to the recipe to see if it meets those high German standards!
I believe this sandwich could be a turning point in my life, marking the start of an exciting new relationship with mustard and pickles. I have never been a huge fan of mustard, and hesitated to put a bunch on this sandwich, but I did it anyways, and am sure glad I did! The mix of mustard and pickle, with the Swiss cheese, and all the hearty meat was so great!
I know this recipe isn’t much different than an actual Cuban sandwich, so to rocket it into grilled cheese territory I loaded it up with Swiss cheese! Cheese on the bottom, cheese in the middle and cheese on top! Gluing all those wonderful ingredients together into a beautiful, beeautiful sandwich! Praise Cuba!!
Another day, another grilled cheese! And a fine one at that! Juicy mushrooms, encompassed in stringy, melted swiss cheese. MMM MMM! Sauteing whole mushrooms, rather than chopping or slicing them, gives this sandwich some great meatiness as you bite into it, getting a big juicy mushroom, mixing with the swiss cheese flavour! Soo good!
Taaake me out to the baaalll gammee, taake me out with the crowwd… I think that’s what my tastebuds were singing as I was eating this one. Talk about flavour! This one had loads of it! Hotdogs, mustard, ketchup, relish, fried onions, and loads of cheese! I think I need to go run around the bases more than a few times after this one! Carlene got the bases loaded with this one, prepping all the ingredients, and I hit the home run and fried it up!
