Yesterday was National Grilled Cheese Day, you guys! Which means all of us gluten-hating types stayed in bed with the covers over our heads. That was my plan at least, until Udi’s tipped me off to their gluten-free grilled cheese challenge. “Hey April,” they said, “how about we send you some bread and you work your magic?” “On it,” I said. Here are the breads –
And that is how I wound up in the kitchen making gluten-free grilled cheese sandwiches three different ways. One of which, didn’t actually have cheese. I know! Your mind is totally blown right now, yes? All three were amazoids, but for the purpose of this challenge, I had to pick a winner. That winner is the BBQ Pork, Extra Sharp Cheddar, & Stone Ground Mustard served on Udi’s Omega Flax & Fiber gluten-free bread.
A close second was served up on Udi’s Millet-Chia gluten-free bread, where I combined the magic of brie, ham, and caramelized onions. Of course, I like to call the ham “jambon” and the grilled cheese some kind of a “monsieur” because I’m part French! And part ridiculous. Here ’tis the Frenchie.
And for the finale, I grabbed some of Udi’s classic gluten-free white and made a peanut butter and chocolate grilled sandwich. It was gone this quick –
So if you want to grill up a mess of gluten-free sandwiches, grab some Udi’s and go to town. Like so:
Gluten-Free BBQ Pork, Cheddar, & Stone Ground Mustard Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I used my favorite gluten-free BBQ pulled pork recipe from here. Butter each outside slice of the bread, spread some stone ground mustard on one side of a slice, combine cheese, BBQ pork, and grill over a medium-high skillet.
Gluten-Free Ham, Brie, & Caramelized Onions Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Caramelize onions by sautéing very thinly sliced onion in olive oil over medium heat until brown. Remove from heat and drain. Combine brie, onions, and ham between two slices of buttered bread, grill on medium-high heat.
Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Sandwich
Butter each outside slice of bread, spread peanut butter liberally one one slice of bread, add handful of chocolate chips and grill on medium-high skillet.
Happy (Belated) National Grilled Cheese Day!
