Grilled Chipotle Club Wafflewich

Grilled Chipotle Cheese Club Waffle-wich

Y’all. I am not ashamed to admit my love of all things cheese. And bacon. And chicken. And waffles.

(Nope. No shame.)

Add the spicy-smokey flavor of chipotle peppers and I’m in my happy place.

Grilled Cheese Club Wafflewich

Sandwiches were a hard thing to give up when I went grain-free. Not that I haven’t had a sandwich here or there when we’ve been out and about. I’m not 100% strict with my grain-free life … I do “cheat” here and there but a good, gluten-filled sandwich hasn’t entered my mouth in ages.

Thank goodness for grain-free waffles … because of them, I was able to use my favorite Cabot Chipotle Cheddar Cheese and create a masterpiece: Grilled Chipotle Club Wafflewich.

I know, I know … longest, silliest name ever. But the sandwich … the sandwich is worth.

It isn’t hard to make … you could use any bread if you aren’t grain free (although the sweet flavor of the waffles balances the heat and smoke so deliciously well), but if you are paleo or grain-free, Against All Grain’s Waffles are da bomb and the. closest. thing. to “real” waffles.

After your waffles are ready (I always make extras and keep them in the freezer for easy dinners or sandwiches), layer your ingredients and grill/toast the sandwich till everything is hot and gooey.

Then, tell your children to fend for themselves and sit your little self down and celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month with the best darn sandwich you’ve ever had.

The Importance of Dinner Time

When the Little Lady first started eating solids, the Husband and I made two simple decisions: (1) dinner-time would always be around the table and (2) we would always make sure we looked at every family member during that meal. No TV distractions. No meals on the couch in the living room. Each family member…

Loaded Sweet Potato-1

Savory Loaded Sweet Potato

Before we started raising our backyard flock (forever known as Cluckton Abbey), I didn’t get the “fried egg craze.”  You know — trend where restaurants and food bloggers were topping everything with a bright and sunny fried egg. I mean, sure — I liked eggs.  They were alright but to put them on everything????? Then,…

5 Minute School Lunch {iheartLunch}

Today, we’re eating lunch at home.  Yup, it’s a sick-day here for the Little Lady and, by extension, the rest of us. Normally, at home, I don’t make up our usual simple bento lunches (yes, I serve kids food on plates like other people); but, today’s lunches were made-ahead of time – part of my process for…
