Buffalo grilled cheese sandwich (gluten-free)

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese month?  Yeah, I didn't either until Udi's Gluten Free Foods contacted me to create a unique grilled cheese recipe.  They partnered with Horizon Organic to provide select food bloggers product to create and showcase their recipes to celebrate grilled cheese this month. 

If you've followed my blog for a while you know that I have an obsession with buffalo sauce.  So why not create a grilled cheese with that tangy flavor; vegetarian and gluten-free?  After all, buffalo sauce tastes great on a lot of things other than just chicken wings.  I had my friend Libby over to taste test the sandwich (since I am attempting to be dairy free right now).  Libby loved the sandwich and thought it tasted awesome.  She said you don't miss having meat on the sandwich because it's so full of flavor.  I took a bite and agreed, it was delish.  I especially love how the celery adds a crunchiness and great texture. 

Buffalo grilled cheese

Ingredients

2 slices gluten-free bread (I used Udi's White Sandwich Bread)
1 slice Horizon Organic Provolone cheese
1-2 tablespoons thinly sliced celery
4 slices tomato (I used a roma)
1-2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon buffalo sauce (I used Franks Red Hot Buffalo)
1-2 tablespoons butter, softened

Preparation

Warm a skillet on medium heat.  Butter the bread.  Spread buffalo sauce on the inside of both slices of bread.  Add the slice of provolone, celery, tomato and blue cheese crumbles to a slice of bread.  Top with other slice and place on warm skillet.  Cook until the bread is lightly browned and cheese begins to melt.  Flip and brown other side of bread. 

Optional: serve with side of blue cheese dressing.

  1. That looks so delicious! I love buffalo sauce too, but not really on wings because I don't eat very much meat. This grilled cheese is perfect for me!
