This month for Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Flavor Mosaic, a wonderful blog by Michelle, a self-proclaimed “occasional cooker.” Well, Michelle, you seem to be more than just an “occasional cooker” since you’ve got me over here drooling :P
I decided to make Michelle’s Habanero Sauce Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
Grilled Cheese and Spinach with Hot Sauce
2 slices whole grain bread
1/2 cup non-dairy cheese, divided (I used Daiya mozzarella shreds)
handful fresh baby spinach
Hot sauce, to taste (I used Universal Heat from Lola’s Local Food Lab in Wellfleet, MA)
Non-dairy butter, as needed
1-2 tsp. olive oil
In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Spread non-dairy butter on one side of each piece of bread. Place the first piece of bread on to the heated and oiled skillet, butter side down; let cook a a minute until hot.
Sprinkle half the cheese on the bread, top with hot sauce, spinach and lastly the remaining cheese. Place the second slice of bread over top, keeping the butter side facing out.
Flip the sandwich very carefully. Press down gently and let cook a few minutes more until both sides are slightly crisp and golden brown and the cheese is melted. Slice and enjoy!
