Pesto Grilled Cheese for Cully & Sully Soups

This post is sponsored by Cully & Sully Back once again for some fried stuff with cheese. What can I say? The cold and the drizzle just do something to me. I need carbs and I need them buttered and fried on both sides. It’s November. It’s the law. When Cully & Sully challenged me to come up with a quick, easy recipe to perfectly complement one of their soups, what else was there but grilled cheese? Cully & Sully are the most popular soup brand in Ireland. Having tried a few from their range of fresh boxed soups, I have to admit that I can see why. I’m not one to buy soup all that often. I’ll make it myself or swerve it altogether. This is because soup from the fresh aisle is, to me, always depressing. Thin, watery, lacking in flavour – you know the drill. However, I think Cully & Sully have cracked it. Before posting I tried 6 soups from their range to make sure they all checked out and were …

Beer Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese with Sussex Beer Onions

Welcome to my third annual autumn grilled cheese recipe. This, one of my favourite blog traditions, began in 2015 with blue cheese on rye.Β It was expertly continued with BBQ sweet potatoΒ in 2016, and I’m very pleased to inform you that 2017 is bringing us my best grilled cheese work yet: oozy, melted gouda with onions caramelised in Sussex IPA and a cheeky squirt of Guinness BBQ sauce. My local friends over at the Lost and Found Brewery sent me this IPA to play with. They were Brighton based but have just moved to bigger and more permanent premises in Horsham (still pretty damn close). They’re all about creating modern, vibrant beer and doing it properly, and they’re definitely ones to watch. Keep an eye out for them on Twitter and Facebook and check out their online shop. The Guinness BBQ sauce is something Tom and I found when perusing the condiment aisle at the big ASDA (something we do with pathetic regularity) and comes highly recommended. The bread you use is really up to you. …

Grilled Blue Cheese on Rye with Autumn Slaw

I had never had a grilled cheese until the day on which I write this blog post. Why didn’t one of you tell me about this? “Hey Cate, you know that thing people in America eat? The cheese sandwich fried in butter in a pan until it’s crispy and oozy and delicious? You really should give that a go”. That’s all it would have taken, people. As much as I keenly encourage consumption of delicious carbs, fat and sugar – particularly at the weekend – I feel it would be irresponsible of me not to offer you up something in the way of a healthy side. Hence this autumn slaw. Notice how I’m gently coercing you into embracing ever so slightly autumnal things? We’re nearly there baby.. I think it’s the colour of this that gives me the right to call it an autumn slaw, that and that alone. I’ll do as I please, this is my corner of the Internet, don’t question my pretty recipe names k? FYI, you’re gonna have plenty of leftover …
