Grilled Cheese Waffles. (Gluten/Grain/Egg Free and Paleo! )

Grilled Cheese Waffles. (Gluten/Grain/Egg Free and Paleo! )

Today we're going back to the basics! And I must tell you the truth- regular grilled cheese has NOTHING on this. Nothing. Given the opportunity to eat it with bread again, I'd choose this.

The key to this perfect sandwich is the crispiness of my waffle recipes. Not all waffles are created equal and I promise you that my recipes will make this sandwich magical.

Want to upgrade your grilled cheese to become something fancier?

You might try adding: slices of fresh tomato, figs, tart apples, pears sweet grapes like Concords, tart grapes like under-ripe Muscats, kiwi, cranberries, sliced strawberries, dried fruits like dried cranberries, raisins, currants, or prunes. For a savory spin try adding: sliced hot peppers, pickles, avocado, fresh basil leaves, tarragon, or rosemary. You might love adding jams, chutneys or varying condiments like buffalo wing sauce, dijon mustard, Sriracha or a hot pepper relish. And finally of course there are lunch meats and roasted veggies! There is so much that can be done!

Grilled Cheese Waffles.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt butter on low in a pan.
  2. While butter is melting, place your choice of cheese (dairy or non dairy) in between two waffles.
  3. Place waffles in the pan and cover. Cook for about 3 minutes per side on medium or until cheese has melted and the waffles are toasted.

Notes

My waffle recipes freeze really well. If using a frozen waffle throw it in the toaster once to thaw and start getting it crispy prior to adding the cheese and placing it in the pan. If using freshly made waffles they can go straight into the pan.
