Cook Time: 8 mins

Prep Time: 5 mins

Serves: 1

Share :
  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese spread
  • 2 slices Daiya Vegan Sliced Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 fresh jalapeño
  • 2-3 tbsp pickled jalapeño slices
  • 1-2 tbsp vegan buttery spread of choice, as needed
  • 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.
  • Spread one side of your bread with cream cheese and top with the chopped/minced jalapeño.
  • Top the second slice with Daiya Vegan Sliced Cheddar Cheese and top with the pickled jalapeño slices.
  • Close your sandwich and, for an extra golden crust, spread the outside of each slice of bread with vegan buttery spread or coconut oil.
  • Next heat a pan to medium heat with some extra buttery spread or coconut oil. Once hot, add your sandwich.
  • 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.
  • 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.
