5 Epic Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Combos You Must Try

2.jpg

1. We freakin’ love garlic. When a recipe says “A clove” we read “A bulb.” Our breath could keep up to three states clear of vampires after a meal. Which is precisely why we dig this recipe for Roasted Garlic & Gruyere Cheese Toasties.  (RECIPE)

3.jpg

2. Grilled cheese is probably my favorite comfort food. Served with Campbell’s Cream of Tomato Soup and I am back to being a kid again. It’s the simple things; cheese, bread, and butter, all melted together, to make one gooey, beautiful feast; that make me sit back and say, “aaahhh… life is good.” Then when you add apples and bacon to the mix, it only gets better. Of course, doesn’t everything get better with bacon? (RECIPE)

3. Why don’t sweet potato and melted cheese go on dates more often? They’re perfect together. (RECIPE)

4. Sometimes you need to tuck your napkin into your shirt and look like a rich, stuffy old man when you eat. This would be one of those times. Between the bacon grease and the guacamole, you could wind up with part of this sandwich on your t-shirt. You’d then have to eat that t-shirt. (RECIPE)

5. Chocolate and Cheese – seriously? Why does this sound insanely good? The combination of sweet, bitter and savory all in one mouthful makes me salivate uncontrollably. Going to make this now. Goodbye! (RECIPE)

How to Cool Your Tongue After Eating Spicy Food

1. Before eating the spicy food, eat something sweet and cold, such as ice cream or fruit.
2. Put sugar in your mouth, and suck on it for about 20 seconds.
3. Drink milk or another dairy product.
4.Drink beer. The carbohydrates in the beer also coat your tongue and decrease the heat levels.
5. Eat something light and fluffy, such as wheat products, bread, muffins, bagels, etc.
6. Chew a good sized slice of lemon or lime with the skin to take away the spiciness. The oil from the citrus skin will strip the oil of the chili from your tongue.
7. Eat tomatoes.

DO NOT

  • Do not drink plain water because water simply spreads the capsaicin around on your tongue.
  • Do not suck out all the saliva!! That helps cool you down too.

Spicy Chipotle Hot Chocolate

Spicy Chipotle Hot Chocolate

This Spicy Chipotle Hot Chocolate Recipe is great for winter weather and the holiday season. Filled with sugar and spice and everything nice! Feel free to replace the whole milk with your choice of almond or soy. You can top this off with a dollop of real whipped cream and sprinkle some chipotle and cinnamon on top.

YIELD: 2-3 small mugs

PREP TIME: 05 min

COOK TIME: 10 min

TOTAL TIME: 15 min

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups whole milk
2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 tsp ground chipotle
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

In a medium sauce pot, heat milk on low and simmer. Once milk is heated, add the semi-sweet chocolate chips and stir until melted.

Mix in the chipotle and cinnamon and stir until well combined. Mix vigorously to help the ground spices dissolve.  Remove from heat, pour into a large measuring cup with a spout for easier pouring or individual cups ready for serving.

For a less rich drink, use less semi-sweet chocolate chips.
