Chicken and Gouda Grilled Cheese

Well, yesterday was a very stressful and exhausting day. After Seamus got sprayed by a skunk the whole morning was consumed by giving him a bath (the baking soda, Hydrogen Peroxide and dish soap) mix my Vet friend suggested worked wonderfully. Then I gave him a regular bath and he was smelling like roses. I took another shower, sprayed Febreeze on the couch, put all blankets in the wash and burned some candles to help air out my living room. I placed some cups of vinegar around the house to get rid of some of the odor as well.Β  Everything is back to normal thankfully. Though it gave me a headache and I started to feel a little nauseous.

Well enough about the smelly business because this weekend it was nothing but the amazing smells of grilled cheese. It is one of my favorites from my childhood and so it seemed only fitting to make a more adult version.


Ingredients: 2 Slices of Sourdough Bread ~ Thousand Island or Russian Dressing ~ Smoked Gouda with Bacon cheese ~ Rotisserie or shredded Chicken ~ 1-2 slices of pre-cooked bacon ~ tomato

Directions: Spread the dressing on both slices of bread.


Layer Chicken, Bacon, Gouda, and Tomato.



Top with the other slice of brad and spray grill with Pam. Press betweenΒ  the grill until cheese is melted about 2-4 minutes.(I know I didn’t have to spell that out right?)


If you don’t have a Panini/Grill the ridged grill pans work well to! Tonight is my first cake decorating class so be prepared for me sharing some of cake decorating tips.

Do you have any favorite filling you like to add to grill cheese?

What is one of your favorite meals from childhood?

Linking up with Jessica and Ashley.

  6. Oh my gosh! That’s the worst!! Hopefully your delicious sandwich made up for your not-so-great morning! Looks amaze! πŸ™‚

  7. Yummy!! Need to try this. I’ve had a George Foreman for years and it just recently occurred to me to make grilled cheese on it. Where have I been? Ha!

    • Haha!! Yeah I always forget about mine since it is tucked into a cabinet but when I do it is so perfect for making a quick sandwich!

  8. Poor Seamus and poor you! How terrible!

  9. you say gouda? im so in.

  10. Poor Seamus!

    Can I tell you a fun fact about Thousand Island Dressing? The Thousand Islands is actually a place near me – and is made up of 1000 islands. Apparently the dressing got its name back in the day when a sailor needed to put something on his food while he was passing through the 1000 island region so he just randomly put together some ingredients and alas, 1000 Island Dressing was born. ha! It’s a beautiful area though and is only about 20 minutes from where I grew up! πŸ™‚

  11. Yum! I love grilled cheese! I might actually make that tonight for dinner…

  12. My eyes actually just lit up at the thought of a panini with gouda and chicken breast. Delicious!!

  13. I need to leave and get sourdough bread and just eat it all in one sitting;) haha I made a burger with it the other night. Yum. This will be made for the mister, he will be thankful for this version!
