Holiday Grilled Cheese

If you have some extra left over food from the big holiday meal, you’ve likely just realized two things. One, using the term “holiday” is our effort to be politically correct, your left over’s may be from Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah or even Festivus (see video below). Two, you now see you have the ingredients for an epic grilled cheese sandwich!

Here is what we did at home on Boxing Day to create a one of a kind grilled cheese delight:

-Diced turkey (light and dark)
-Spread cranberry on one slice of sourdough
-Drizzle balsamic vinegar on the other slice of sourdough
-Butter both sides of the outside of the sourdough
-Grill it nice and slow
It was a truly incredible holiday grilled cheese sandwich!

Grilled Cheese Academy

Could it be our most boring post ever? If you’d like some great grilled cheese ideas for home, feel free to try some of Mom’s original ideas out.

Also, we came across a great website called The Grilled Cheese Academy, a site full of great grilled cheese recipes and cheese listings funded by Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Eat Wisconsin Cheese. That’s all, we have writers block today.

Ay-Caramba! He Ate It All!

Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck turned into Mom’s Grilled Cheese Kitchen the other night, as she stopped by her big brothers house with Mini-Mom to visit and hang out with her niece and nephew. Mom just happened to bring along some supplies from the truck and her 12 year old nephew Jackson decided he wanted to build his own grilled cheese creation. He named it, The Jackson 5. Why? Because it felt like it weighed 5 pounds. It turned out to be a massive triple-decker. The first layer was thick with cheddar and bacon, topped with a golden slice of sour dough. On top of that, a mound of Mom’s homemade chili….topped with another golden slice of sour dough. This was a triple decker-cheddar-bacon-chili-sour-dough-grilled cheese-monster! And yes, he ate it all!!! Growing boys need their food. Get yourself down to Mom’s today and for an extra $1.50 you can add chili to your grilled cheese delight. You’ll need extra napkins.

Legen-dary Wingman!

As Mom’s official blogger, there are some fringe benefits… free grilled cheese! Last Friday I had the chance to finally try Mom’s new Wingman Grilled Cheese. Let me tell you, it was epic. In fact, I might even say legen-dary!

It was a warm, cheesy gooey, chicken wing delight and make sure you grab an extra couple napkins for this baby. There were a few other folks trying the Wingman out and it seemed like a big thumbs up from all.

He Came, He Saw, He Conquered

It was Meatloaf Monday as usual this week at Mom’s, on Monday in case you didn’t catch on, and Chris did it! He sauntered up to the order counter at Mom’s, laid down his hard earned lunch money and went deep into the most famous of all Mom’s grilled cheese sandwiches…..the meatloaf. With extra love and care, Mom created the mother of all grilled cheese sandwiches and Chris put it all down. In case you were wondering about the phrase “He Came, He Saw, He Conquered”….it was apparently spoken by Julius Caesar after he suppressed a revolt in Thrace, which is where he later invented the Ceaser salad.

Cheesed by Air Canada

Hey, it looks like those sneaky aviators over at Air Canada might be borrowing from Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck. We noticed on their online magazine Air Canada enRoute, their creative writing gurus who get paid the big bucks have jumped on the grilled cheese bandwagon and refer to their grilled cheese story as ”served simply the way Mom made it”. This stinks of cheese plagiarism, well kinda, it’s pretty close to home if you know what I mean. If you Google “grilled cheese”, Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck is everywhere online (pat self on back). If you Google “grilled cheese Vancouver”, Mom’s owns the first page results (another pat). We’re just saying…. Debra Weiner at enRoute may want to write about the amazing gourmet grilled cheese that sits in Air Canada’s own back yard, and not in Cincinnati Ohio and is Mom approved already. Stop by any time Debra, lunch is on us. Thank you for flying with Mom’s :)
