Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

I might as well be a slave to Pinterest. Regardless of what I’m doing, I will always find a way to browse recipe ideas on my Pinterest feed.


Now I try to actually replicate the recipes and try them for myself, but sometimes my busy schedule doesn’t always allow that.

Fortunately today I was able to try a new take on a Grilled Cheese sandwich.

I love Fall season, because I am a Pumpkin addict. Anything pumpkin related is always #1 in my heart, so I was excited to try a Pumpkin Grilled Cheese sandwich.

It may sound odd, but it surprisingly wasn’t too bad! I think my only downfall was being Pumpkin happy with the portion and not giving an equal ratio with cheese. Other than that, I would recommend trying it if you love Pumpkin and want a creative take on a staple sandwich.

Pumpkin Grilled Cheese: 



Scoop of Pumpkin Puree

Cheese of your preference (I’m lactose intolerant, so I use Daiya Vegan Cheese)

Bread of your preference (I prefer Wheat Bread)


Spread butter on both slices of bread

Heat up skillet

Place a slice of bread on skillet to begin grilling: (butter side on skillet)

Place cheese slices on top of bread

Spread a scoop of Pumpkin Puree on top of cheese

Add any other ingredients ( I added avocado slices)

Place other slice of bread with butter side facing up

Flip when bread is at desired finish
