Loaded Grilled Cheese Sandwiches



Sandwich Ingredients:

Gruyere Cheese
Loaf Turkish Pide Bread
Cream Cheese

Filling Ingredients:

2 Venison & horopito sausages (cooked)
2 onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 clove garlic
150g spinach (approx.)
Small handful fresh parsley (finely chopped)
1Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp brown sugar
Salt & Pepper



To make filling mix:

Add oil, onion and garlic to pan and sauté over low-medium heat. Add brown sugar, stir gently and continue to cook for approx. 10 mins until onion mix is soft and well cooked (but not browning). Cut sausages in half lengthwise and slice thinly. Turn up heat slightly. Add to onion mix and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove stalks from spinach and shred into fine strips. Add this and parsley to pan and mix until just cooked and combined well. Add salt & pepper to taste.

To Make Sandwiches:

Cut thin slices of bread, on one side spread desired amount of cream cheese, add filling mix to cover, top with sliced gruyere cheese, top with another piece of bread. Either cook in a sandwich press or in a medium heat pan until bread is browned on both sides.


Gruyere Cheese is a great choice for flavour in a grilled cheese sandwich, and here’s an idea to add some extra stuffing to give it a little tasty boost. The filling mix can be made in advance and kept in the fridge until you want to put your toasted sandwich together and serve.
