The Meltdown Grilled Cheez


  • 2 slices Daiya Cheddar Style Slices
  • 1 tbsp Daiya Plain Cream Cheese Style Spread
  • 2-3 slices veggie bacon
  • 1-2 whole green chiles, roasted and rinsed
  • 2 slices your favourite gluten free bread
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter or margarine


Cook the veggie bacon following package instructions. While it's cooking, slice your green chilies into long ribbons. When the veggie bacon is done, remove from pan and set on a paper towel to drain.

Using the same pan as the veggie bacon, lightly cook the green chilies ribbons.

Butter one side of a slice of bread and place in the pan over low/medium heat. Top with one of the Daiya Cheddar Style Slices, followed by veggie bacon and green chilies. Add the second slice of cheez

Slather the remaining slice of bread with the Daiya Cream Cheese Style Spread on the inside, and butter the outside. Place on top of the sandwich. Cover the pan until sandwich becomes melted. Flip after 2-3 minutes, once the bread starts to become golden brown. When the cheez is melted and the bread is golden brown on both sides, remove from pan.

Serve with ketchup, hot sauce or your favourite condiment and enjoy!
