Michael’s Daiya Chedder Style Shreds Grilled Sandwich

The other day, it was a ‘madhouse’ in the kitchen as the boys (all four) decided to all partake in the making of their lunches.

Bacon was cooking, Michael had his Grilled Daiya Sandwiches on the go, with slices of his Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free French Stick sliced up to share with his cousins and brother for Bacon and Lettuce Sandwiches.

There have been a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches being made lately, for the three boys without a dairy allergy. The other day, my youngest nephew asked Michael, “Do you wish you could have a grilled cheese sandwich?” Well, that got the ‘ball rolling’…turns out Michael can!

Slicing Michael’s Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free French Stick into thin slices, spreading the outside with Becel’s Vegan Margarine, filling the inside with Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds  the sandwiches were placed in a hot pan to toast.

The result…a crispy crust with a ‘melted cheese’ filling perfect for dipping in some ketchup…just like the other boys!

So on this crazy lunch making day, my youngest nephew, intrigued with Michael’s Grilled Daiya Sandwich, inquired, “Can I try some?” So Michael made enough sandwiches to share with his youngest cousin. “This is good!”, he announced to everyone.

Michael was so pleased. “Really! Did it taste like a real grilled cheese?”, he asked. “Kinda”, his cousin answered, as he gobbled up the rest of his sandwich.

Now there is talk about making Dairy Free Macaroni and Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds …these Kraft Dinner lovers are sure to enjoy our version!

P.S. I am on the search for the latest Daiya product…Daiya Cheddar Style Wedges! Ready to slice for sandwiches without the need to cook them. Cheddar, Jack and Jalapeno Garlic Havarti…yummy! Imagine the possibilities! Has anyone found and tried them yet?

      • I have tried the cheddar but it is very sharp tasting and I don’t like sharp cheeses, dairy or dairy free. I have not opened the Monterey jack style version we have yet but I will report back when I do. My daughter however likes it without cooking. She has had it as cheese and crackers with pickles.

      • Thank you for sharing your experiences with the Daiya Wedges! I thought the Havarti Style sounded good! Looking forward to your next review!

  1. Sadly Daiya cheese has pea protein and my Michael is allergic to dairy and peas (thankfully not soy!). We use Tofutti cheese slices for our cheese needs. Although it is hard to find in stores, it melts beautifully and makes great grilled cheese, quesadillas and pizza. Scatter a few pieces atop lasagna and other places where you’d normally use cheese and the food looks like everyone elses!

    I also make Mac and Cheese using the Tofutti, I am sure the Daiya would be awesome! I add a little tumeric to add the cheddar zing and the famous yellow color (for comparison to the boxed mac and cheese). I use whatever pasta shapes we have leftover, add soymilk, tofutti cheese and tumeric and microwave to a creamy goodness. My non-FA daughter is ga-ga over it and never says that it tastes different from mac and cheese that she eats other places. Give it a whirl!!

    • Luckily, my boys are fine with pea protein…thank you for the Tofutti cheese slice idea for Mac and Cheese! The health benefits of turmeric would be an extra plus! Thank you for sharing…I love having allergy friendly options when options can be so limited with multiple food allergies.
