Yesterday was the supposed end of Summer. Mother Nature missed the memo on that where I live, but I’m still cooking with the flavors of fall. Pumpkin, cranberries, apples, cheddar and bacon all come together in my Flavors of Fall Grilled Cheese. Take a peek:
It’s embarrassing how quick a loaf of gluten-free bread disappeared while crafting this recipe. You know, I like to get my recipes *just right* before I share them. It’s not that I couldn’t stop eating the best grilled cheese combination I’ve ever tasted. Nope. It is not because grilled cheese is hard to photograph, so I was forced to make this several times to experiment with different lighting and locations. And it has nothing to do with my favorite fella asking for this sandwich for several days in a row. Absolutely not. Nor anything to do with me over-browning (read burning…) a few of them.
Well, okay, it’s all of that. This is one seriously good sandwich. Heat your favorite skillet now, get the ingredients ready. And invite me over. We’re out of bread.
This sandwich was inspired by a grilled cheese at Toasted, a restaurant with a couple of locations in the Orlando area. A gluten-free friend tells me they make incredible sandwiches and fries safe for those of us who can’t have gluten. I hope to visit there on my next trip to Central Florida.
The pumpkin butter I used is from Trader Joe’s. Surely their plethera of pumpkin products will hit the shelves again soon and we can snag more of this seasonal favorite. You might also find pumpkin butter at your favorite grocery or specialty market. Use it anywhere you would use apple butter. Good stuff!
Now go enjoy your Flavors of Fall Grilled Cheese. I’ll be right over to join you…
