Grilled Cheese Curd Sandwich

5 Oct

I received free samples of Sabra Spreads mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Sabra and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

It’s a cool, fall day; leaves of varying color are fluttering to the ground, and you’re heading home to make a warm, comforting and healthy dinner. A sandwich may not sound like it fits the bill, but a toasty one, filled with melty cheese and covered in a layer of flavor is just enough to hit the spot.

Sabra has asked members of The Recipe Redux to develop tasty sandwich and wrap recipes using their new product: Sabra Spreads. Available in three flavors, these spreads come in a squirt bottle for easy use, and add just the right amount of flavor. Like their dips, Sabra Spreads are just hummus – plain and simple. The ingredients list is one that I can get on board with, especially during October #Unprocessed!

This grilled cheese sandwich takes flavor to the extreme. Sprouted bread adds some oomph to the entrée, while mixed cheddar cheese curds melt into chewy perfection inside. Rather than slathering butter on the bread’s exterior, I use the Garlic Herb Sabra Spread to add flavor without extra calories.

A warm, filling dinner is ready in no time! Pair with salad or hot tomato soup, and you’re good to go.

Grilled Cheese Curd Sandwich

Serves 2

  • 4 slices sprouted grain bread
  • 4 tbsp Sabra Spreads Garlic Herb spread
  • 2 oz mixed cheddar cheese curds

Heat a large pan over medium-high.

Spread one tablespoon of the Garlic Herb spread on each of the four slices of bread.

Grease the hot pan with olive oil spray. Place two pieces of bread spread-side down in the hot pan. Top each with a layer of cheese curds and place the other pieces of bread spread-side up on top. Cover with a lid and let cook a few minutes until the bottom bread browns and the cheese melts. Flip and let the other side brown without the lid on.

Serve hot and enjoy!

    I love cheese curds! I have never thought of using them in a grilled cheese sandwich though, what a great idea! Now the question is, should I settle for what I have in the market here in Boston, or have my best friend from Wisconsin try to ship me some? 😀

    So what do curds taste like?

      OMG! They taste just like cheddar cheese, but it’s the texture that is different. When fresh, they squeak when you eat them.

    The addition of cheese curds to what would otherwise be a normal grilled cheese sandwich definitely added a nice contrast of not only tastes, but textures as well since the cheese curds didn’t melt quite as much as the deli cheese did.
