How many of us still make grilled cheese sandwiches? *raises hand* A grilled cheese sandwich is something I still whip up now when I have no clue what to eat for lunch or dinner. The ultimate comfort food, it brings back memories of the melted cheese stretching when I pull the sandwich apart and dunking it into a hot, steaming bowl of tomato soup. Even without the soup, eating one of those sandwiches reminds me of being a kid.
It's 2017, so we have more options for eating food. Gone are the days of the basic bread and melted cheese combo. This list of sandwiches are fun, exciting, and twists on a classic we all love.
Never thought cauliflower could be used as a replacement for bread? For the vegans, vegetarians, or even folks looking to kickstart a healthier lifestyle, this one is perfect for y'all.
If I decide to be more adventurous with my grilled cheese sandwiches, this creation is the first one I'd make. Usually I'll put a slice of ham on mine for a little something extra, but this is next level extra for me. Yes! Yes! Yes!
I never imagined putting actual fruit on your sandwich, have you? Gouda cheese is smoky enough for the sweetness of the apple to mesh well with it yet the flavors won't compete for your taste buds' attention.
Zucchini is another one of those veggies I never thought of turning into a sandwich. Plus, who doesn't love waffles????? The mixtures of texture and tastes is going to send your taste buds into overdrive.
Pizza as a sandwich sounds like a plan to me. Herbs, spices, gooey cheese? I'm there...no questions asked.
My boyfriend loves eggplant parmigiana so I'd definitely make this one for him. The difference between other grilled cheese sandwiches and this one is the eggplant is cooked first then added to the sandwich. An extra step but this is going to be a hit next time you're broke but feeling healthy.
Another great brunch or dessert option. I know it's weird to think of eating a sandwich that isn't ice cream for dessert but trust me, it'll work. Crisp peach slices with squishy berry juice dripping down your arm is going to make you wonder why you never thought of this combo before.
