The Great Grilled Cheese Challenge

If you’ve been living under a rock then you probably won’t know about FOTB which stands for Fellowship of the Bloggers. It’s a new project that I’ve just embarked on with a few of my friends and we’re doing some amazing things so if you want to get involved I suggest you do so by heading over to the blog and finding out a bit more!
One of those new friends is Sunae.
She’s Australian and she’s pretty cool. But considering I am South African and I live in New Zealand, there’s quite a bit of rivalry with Aussie. What better way to honour that rivalry than a grilled cheese off?!
There is no better way. That’s just how it is.

So Sunae and I both agreed to make a grilled cheese to make our countries proud. Then we’re going to post our recipes on our blogs and next week, we’re going to make the other person’s grilled cheese. Yeah, it’s a grilled cheese off alright.
If you want to get involved, you can make both grilled cheeses and leave your winner in a comment!

Did you know grilled cheese sandwiches are super hard to photograph?!
Well they they so I apologise for the bad photography, but I was kind of in a rush to eat this as well because it was freaking awesome. My favourite thing about grilled cheese sandwiches is the crispy outside and the soft inside. It’s just the best thing ever.

So what’s in it?!
Well there’s pineapple.
And thin shaved ham.
And tomato.
And cheddar cheese.
And mayonnaise.
And onion.
And there’s definitely a lot of love in there too.

So I just butter the outside of the bread, plonk all my ingredients inside and then grill my sandwich on the flat top. Now I know not everyone has a flat top and I’m pretty lucky, but if you have a sandwich maker then you can use that or just a frying pan on the stove is good!

  • I just read Sunae's blog and saw your challenge, I want to taste both of your sandwiches. It looks yummy.

  • She definitely made a yummy looking dinner! I'm going to buy the ingredients and make it myself for next week! Let us know if you make either one of them too, you won't be disappointed 🙂

  • I made my sandwich yesterday after reading your blogs. I was inspired by the two of you. I put leftover chicken strips, tomatoes, onions, mayonnaise, ketchup and cheese. 🙂

  • Oh that sound incredible! Maybe you could take part in a Grilled Cheese Off too?!

  • You have a flat top cooker, I'm so jealous! I don't have a sandwich maker either, but I heard you can plonk your toaster on the side, wrap the sandwich is grease proof paper, slot into the toaster and toast. Must try that.

    I haven't heard of the Fellowship of the Bloggers but I'm off to find out more right now!

  • Well I own a takeaway so we use it for our burgers lol. It's not in my house unfortunately but that is definitely something I would splurge on in my own home if I ever own one!
    Yeah I've heard about the toaster on the side. I've never tried it either so let me know if you do!
    Otherwise you can just use a frying pan. That's what I do at home 🙂

    Oooh, FOTB is amazing if I do say so myself. And we're launching Fellowship Magazine which I see you signed up for so I hope you enjoy that 🙂
