Hi! I'm hibernating under my electric blanket whilst perpetually sipping hot tea. Wing It Vegan is on hiatus until I'm willing to come back out. Happy holidays!

Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches!

The grilled-stuff bonanza continues with some delicious and ridiculously easy to make grilled "ham and cheese" sandwiches.

This is so simple it can't even be called a recipe. Spread some Earth Balance or other buttery spread on two slices of whole grain bread. Layer vegan ham and cheese on top of a buttered slice-we like Lightlife Smart Deli Baked ham style and a combination of Galaxy Foods Rice Vegan Slices (American flavor) and Vegan Gourmet (Mozzarella). Top with the other slice, buttered-side down, and spread a little Earth Balance on top of the sandwich. Flip and do the same with the bottom.

I like grilling these on my Black & Decker grill/waffle maker on medium heat for about 5 minutes, and then crank up the heat a little for 5 more minutes. The medium heat gives the cheese time to melt and get deliciously gooey. If you're going to grill your sandwich on a skillet, then cover the sandwich with a lid during the first five minutes; this will give the cheese a chance to melt and stick to the bread. Then flip and cook uncovered until the bottom gets nice and toasty. Quick and easy!


  1. I MUST recommend the UnCheese cookbook Gooey Grilled Cheese Sammie recipe has seriously changed my life.

  2. Thanks for the tip! I love gooey grilled cheese sammies!
