Jalapeño Street Corn Grilled Cheese

Having teased about a grilled sandwich in my last post……ta da……… Jalapeño Street Corn Grilled Cheese! Combining two of our recent recipes, Cheesy Jalapeño Quick Bread and Cheesy Street Corn Casserole ,we have us a winner!!!

Unless you have a very large family, you will usually have left overs. Being a family of two…..well four, but my fur babies do not reap any rewards from Mom being a food blogger. Although Wilma is pretty quick to snatch up anything that may fall on the floor. If I’m cooking….she’s looking!!!!

If I’ cook’n she’s look’n
Trying to come up with way to utilize those leftovers can be a challenge. Sometimes that challenge goes unmet but Jalapeño Street Corn Grilled Cheese, it came together with ease.

When I was making the Cheesy Jalapeño Quick Bread, all I was thinking about was how good it would be toasted or grilled. While the bread was baking, I spied that left over street corn. Now, if you don’t have left over street corn, you can whip up some very easily. Its a quick easy recipe, click on the link about to see how.

Grilled cheese is just about the easiest sandwich to make, and the variations are endless. Sticking with a Mexican theme, I chose cheddar and queso cheese…. those two cheeses along with the cojita cheese in the street corn…… it’s the trifecta of cheese. 

Mayo (really Miracle Whip …of course), green onions, and spices…. along with the freshness of the lime and sweetness of the corn give great texture that complements the creaminess of the cheddar and queso cheese.

Now, about that bread….Cheesy Jalapeño Quick Bread adds, yes more cheese and a great spicy element. It’s not overly spicy, and you can control that with the amount of jalapeños you add to the bread.  You can make the sandwich with any bread but you will lose that spice factor.

Grilled Aloha Chicken Sausage with Fresh Pineapple Ginger Salsa

Grilled Aloha Chicken Sausage with Fresh Pineapple Ginger Salsa. Wow is that a mouth full….a mouth full of delicious!!

Grilled Aloha Chicken Sausage with Fresh Pineapple Ginger Salsa

In our last post, we gave you our Fresh Pineapple Salsa recipe. Good for almost any grilled meat or fish, and super yummy on tacos. Grilling season is well underway and we needed a vessel for this fab salsa.

Enter Gilbert’s Craft Sausages  … first, let me say that I am not getting paid or compensated by Gilbert’s in anyway. I just really love their products and wanted to share them with you!!

Grilled Aloha Chicken Sausage with Fresh Pineapple Ginger Salsa

I am particularly fond of their chicken sausages. Click on the link above to see all Gilbert’s amazing products. My two favorite are the Caprese Chicken Sausage……I used these in our Italian Sausage Caprese Salad and the Aloha Chicken Sausage. Sweet tropical pineapple, coconut, and hardwood smoked brown sugar work beautifully with the flavors of chicken and ginger.

So…….what makes these sausages so great you ask???? First, they are low in calories, low in fat, and full of protein. Second they taste amazing, and the list goes on…..

Fully cooked, so you can heat them up quickly. They’re individually wrapped, so you can cook as few as one or as many as you please.

All natural chicken, raised with no antibiotics, and they are minimally processed…..I like that! We try to buy organic as much as possible, and use meats that are raised with care, and without all the yucky stuff. 

You all know that I love to grocery shop, and get many of my ideas while just tolling around the store. That’s how I stumbled across Gilbert’s Craft Sausages. The sausages were the inspiration for the salsa. It was just bonus that the salsa worked so well with other dishes as well.

No big mystery on the recipe here……we grilled the sausages….it took all of about 5 minutes…. I toasted the buns (personal preference)….then heaped on the Fresh Pineapple Ginger Salsa.

Dinner was ready in under 10 minutes. We had chips with ours, but have whatever grill/picnic sides you and yours enjoy!
