Portobello Grilled Cheese

The Divas love a good grilled cheese sandwich. Pair it with a nice salad, or a Bloody Caesar for that perfect pseudo tomato soup and grilled cheese combo. A grilled cheese is the perfect dinner if you want something fast yet delicious. But we aren’t talking about a piece of Kraft Cheese in between two slices of white bread. Relax! We’re Divas after all… we mean gourmet grilled cheeses. Obviously!

We usually love making grilled cheeses with rye bread but we were recently inspired by St-Méthode Bakery. Opened in 1947, this bakery was opened in the village of St-Méthode. Over 60 years later the bakery is providing renowned bread to Quebec. We adore rye bread but for a different texture and taste, we like using St-Méthode Bakery bread when making a grilled cheese sandwich!

We fell in love with Sinai Gourmet hot sauce at the Montreal Oysterfest, our favourite was their Habanero Maple hot sauce. Forget Tabasco, Sinai Gourmet is revolutionizing hot sauces by creating sauces with natural flavours and by combining peppers. And they’re a Montreal brand, and we absolutely love buying local.
