Grilled Cheese and Pickle Sandwich
Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is “recreate a meal from your childhood.” It’s also my first MoFo post of the year! I decided to make a childhood sandwich: a cheese and pickle sandwich.
My day-to-day childhood meals were pretty basic. Spaghetti, frozen pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and the weekly pancake breakfast (which I’ve already posted about!). Not particularly inspiring for a full-on vegan recreation. But what I can post about is one of the weird food combinations I ate as a child: cheese and pickles. The cheese and pickle sandwich was one of my dad’s concoctions, and the “recipe” is pretty self-explanatory. If you have bread, cheese, and pickles, you’ve already done most of the work!
I usually and my cheese and pickle sandwich untoasted, but opted for grilled cheese version this time.
- Vegan cheddar cheese
- Put a layer of cheese on 1 slice of bread.
- Top with a layer of pickles, then place another slice of bread on top.
Pickle and cheese sandwiches are usually served untoasted with the cheese unmelted, but I was working with vegan cheddar shreds. Serving the cheese cold was a no-go for the tastebuds and the logistics of sandwich eating. Essentially, I made grilled cheese with pickles. Now you can too!
