The classic grilled cheese gets a savory, fall inspired twist with this spiced up pumpkin make over. Extra cheesy and full of flavor (and providing extra veggie goodness) this savory pumpkin grilled cheese is sure to take your favorite comfort lunch to the next level.
Alright so there may be snow on the ground (if not now… its coming for you, don’t you worry), but cans of pumpkin are still upon us. Heck, for my American friends Thanksgiving hasn’t even come and gone yet, so a pumpkin recipe is still totally legit, no?
BUT, for any of you who may be getting sick of the outpour of pumpkin baking recipes, you’ll be relieved to know I am not here to bring you yet another sweet pumpkin loaf or pumpkin muffin or even a pumpkin scone. No, today we are mixing that favorite fall obsession with its lesser known, albeit my personal favorite, pairing…
Yes folks. We’re going savory.
We’re melting into the world of one of the best edible inventions to date. The fabulous, classic, never-fail,
Oh grilled cheese. How can you not be loved. I mean, you never fail us. Warm gooey cheese split between two perfectly grilled pieces of bread? You’ve got everything that our cold, tired, too-lazy-to-cook-anything-real bodies want. You can be served most classically with ketchup or tomato soup. Or, you can get a little extra jazzed up for a night on the town…
With a hot date? Like maybe that last little bit of pumpkin puree that’s been lingering in our fridge from all those baked goodies we’ve been conjuring up all fall?
And I’ll start talking to real human beings now.
This version of the classic grilled cheese is extra creamy thanks to the addition of pumpkin puree, extra flavorful thanks to the addition of fall spices, extra tangy thanks to some chopped onion, and – most importantly – extra gooey thanks to the addition of two kinds of cheese. #morecheesepleeeeasseee
So simple its hardly a recipe – yet its these simple recipes that end up being the real keepers. I came up with this sandwich as a random experiment years ago.
Actually, quick funny story – I brought this sandwich into the hospital during my inpatient stay (once we were allowed to bring in our own food once a week) and the next week, two other patients AND one of the dietitians had brought it in as well! Now that warmed my heart.
Now knowing YOU have also experienced this fabulous little sandwich will warm my heart even more. Put this super delicious pumpkin grilled cheese on your regular lunch rotation and treat your belly to some serious, serious comfort.Savory Pumpkin Grilled Cheese!
