SCLT Sandwich

25 Apr

This is grilled cheese sandwich to the MAX… or Panini, however you want to call it.

Trying to capture the flavors and essence of the BLT in a vegetarian, pressed form, I substituted Smoked Cheddar cheese for the Bacon. I learned that melting smoked cheddar cheese in the oven would taste just like bacon. I have not tried it the way dmcavanagh suggested in this thread, but let me tell you, this combination really works.


2 ounces of smoked cheddar cheese
About 2 ounces of cream cheese
1 tbs of butter
A handful of arugula lettuce
3-4 tomato slices
Multi-Grain demi baguette
  1. In a food processor or a Magic Bullet… mix together the cheeses, butter and arugula. Mix together until it becomes a puree.
  2. Slather the cheese puree onto both sides of the bread. Layer the tomato slices in the bottom half and top with the other bread half.
  3. Press in a Panini press or a George Foreman grill for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

I hope you enjoy this sandwich as much as I do…
