Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches – Three Ways!

Today we’re getting cheesy with three super tasty, super melty, vegan grilled cheese sandwiches!

Vegan Grilled Cheese - Three Ways! Each easy cheesy sandwiches features 100% vegan cheese in all it's melty, stretchy glory!

I think it’s safe to say that y’all are well aware of just how much I love my melty cheese. It’s an addiction that runs deep, influencing my meal choices and recipe development on a daily basis. Whether it’s an ooey gooey bowl of mac and cheese, an easy cheesy stuffed spaghetti squash, or an epic game day cheese ball, cheese is sorta my thing.

When the super sweet folks at Daiya reached out and challenged me to take my obsession with all things melty and create a swoon-worthy plant-based grilled cheese sandwich I was fascinated. Could it melt? Could it stretch? Could these dairy-free slices-o-cheeze deliver a comfort food experience that only a grilled cheese sandwich could provide?

To my delight, the answer is a resounding YES! YES! 1000X YES!

If you’re new to Daiya, they’re the creators of delicious plant based alternatives to dairy products. Their products are perfect for anyone who’s dairy-intolerant, allergic, vegan, or simply living a healthy lifestyle sans-moo-cow.

I wound up creating not one, but a trio of grilled cheeze amazingness. You’re going to do a double take, I just know it. Guys, this is the real deal! These plant-based slices were shockingly melty. Deli counter american cheese melty! Crazy awesome, right?

Wait… did I mention how MELTY they are?!

Yield2servings

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 2 TBSP Daiya Plain Cream Cheese Style Spread
  • 2 Daiya Cheddar Style Slices
  • 1 fresh jalapeño
  • 2-3 TBSP pickled jalapeño slices
  • 1-2 TBSP vegan buttery spread of choice, as needed

Instructions

  1. First prep your jalapeño. Remove the stem and slice in half, removing the seeds and veins to dull a bit of the heat. Or leave them in for an extra spicy sandwich! Chop finely and set aside.
  2. Spread one side of your bread with Daiya cream cheese and top with the chopped/minced jalapeño.
  3. Top the second slice with Daiya Cheddar Style Slices and top with the pickled jalapeño slices.
  4. Close your sandwich and, for an extra golden crust, spread the outside of each slice of bread with vegan buttery spread or coconut oil.
  5. Next heat a pan to medium heat with some extra buttery spread or coconut oil. Once hot, add your sandwich.
  6. Use a spatula to press down on the grilled cheese, and feel free to pop a clear pot lid on top to help melt the slices. Before flipping, add a little more spread/oil if your pan is dry. Pop your lid back on if you’re using one and grill each side until golden brown.
  7. Melty grilled cheese trick: For the meltiest sandwich ever, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds or so after grilling for the most epic vegan cheese pull of all time! It’s a bit dreamy.

You guys, my T-rex husband straight up DEVOURED this sandwich. He walked in as I was standing over the cutting board with half a sandwich hanging out of my mouth and held out his hand for the other half. Between the two of us these sandwiches didn’t last long and we inhaled them while watching the game!

sidenote: can we talk about how impossible stacking these sammies was? The thick melty slices made these bad boys into a leaning tower of deliciousness. Some problems aren’t really problems at all, eh? 😉
