Grown-up grilled cheese

October 1, 2009


I have always loved grilled cheese. The gooey, creamy cheese with nice toasted bread…perfection! Here is a quick and easy version of ‘grown up’ grilled cheese.

What you will need:

  • 2-3 slices of turkey lunch meat, I used Boar’s Head (which is all gluten-free)
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices of gluten-free bread. I adore Udi’s because it tastes like the real thing!
  • mayo (optional)
  • poultry seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • macadamia nut oil


  • Saute turkey in a pre-heated skillet with a very small amount of macadamia nut oil (butter, EVOO, or vegetable oil would work fine also)
  • Add seasonings: pinch of poultry seasoning and pepper.
  • Take out of pan, build sandwich (turkey, mayo and cheese)
  • Place back in pan and heat through until cheese is melted.

Yummy goodness!

    Sometimes I just call that dinner. LOL Mr. GFE won’t go for a traditional grilled cheese alone for dinner, but if I add meat, he’s always game. 😉 My favorite grilled cheese these days is made from cheddar cheese between two corn tortillas. I just don’t miss bread and have never found a really good commercial gluten-free bread that I could buy. Not locally anyway.

    Lovely simple meal!

    So, how did you make the brussel sprouts and the mushrooms? I am going to try this, but instead of this bread, I am going to try it on Elana’s Pantry “simple bread” with almond flour.

    I didn’t know about Udi’s. Next time at my local HEB (Williams Drive in Georgetown) I’ll look for it – it’s on my grocery list. And thanks!
