Galaxy Grilled Cheese

20180812_175206This is definitely not your average grilled cheese!

The difference?  Pickles!

It’s made like most grilled cheese sandwiches – butter one side of two slices of bread, and then put the cheese in between on the non-buttered sides.  However this time you add in the pickle slices with the cheese so it’s in the middle of the sandwich.

They suggest cutting the sandwiches into star or round “planet” shapes if you have cookie cutters, but the only ones I have are shaped like Christmas trees and stockings so we just cut ours in half and ate them as is.

Taste: 7/10

To me the pickle addition was a little bit strange, but it was still pretty good.  Not as bad as I thought it would be!

Flipping these sandwiches with the slippery pickles inside isn’t easy!  For the first one, my pickles slipped right out and I had to re-assemble it while it’s cooking over the stove…so be careful!

Cost: Cheap

You may have everything already in your kitchen!  You’ll need bread, butter, cheddar cheese, and pickles.

Ewok Eats

databank_ewok_01_169_747db03aI wasn’t really sure what to expect with a title like “Ewok Eats,” but it turns out this is just broccoli and dip!

The dip is made first by combining yogurt, cream cheese, some chopped herbs, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and pepper.  It’s covered in Saran Wrap and left in the fridge for at least an hour.

The dip is spread into the bottom of a shallow dish (I used a pie pan), and the broccoli is placed in the dip standing upright so they look like trees from the Ewok forest!

Taste: 10/10

The dip is the real star here!  It’s delicious, and would taste good with pretty much any vegetable!

I was worried that there was actually too much pepper originally, but while you can certainly taste it, the pepper isn’t overwhelming at all.  And it’s offset nicely by the dairy from the yogurt and cream cheese!

It’s just a matter of mixing ingredients and chopping up broccoli.  The hardest part is getting those broccoli florets to stay standing upright!

Cost: Average

You’ll likely need to purchase the herbs, cream cheese, yogurt, and broccoli.  Other items include Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt.
