Hi! I am currently being an antisocial hermit and not monitoring my blog comments. If you are in mortal peril and need to contact me, you can reach me at wingitvegan (at) gmail.com. Back to my hermit cave now.

UPDATE: Looks like I'm on YouTube now. I made a few cooking videos. Let's see how long that lasts. They are ASMR-friendly videos with no talking or background music, only cooking sounds. ASMR videos have helped me cope with anxiety, so I thought I'd try to make my own. If you're one of those people who don't experience ASMR, then the videos might seem a bit... *odd*.

Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

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

This is so simple it can't even be called a recipe. Spread some Earth Balance or other buttery spread over two slices of whole grain bread. Layer vegan ham and cheese on top of a buttered slice of bread (we like Lightlife Smart Deli Baked ham style and a combination of Galaxy Foods Rice Vegan Slices and Vegan Gourmet mozzarella). Top with the other slice of bread, 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 five minutes and then crank up the heat a little for five 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 instead, you can 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!
