  • elelctric grill or grill pan


Herbed Vegan Mayo

  • 2 Tablespoons mayo vegan
  • 1/2 teaspoon herbs de provence or other herbs of choice I like tarragon
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast

The Sandwich

  • 2 slices bread extra large slices like a "country loaf"
  • 1 Tablespoon vegan butter, softened or use tub butter
  • 3 slices cheese vegan - I use two different flavors


  • MIx together the herbed mayo by adding the dried herbs and nutritional yeast. set aside for a few minutes so that the herbs can soften.
  • Butter one slice of bread and put it buttered side down on the grill.
  • Put half the mayo on that slice and top with the three slices of cheese, placing as evenly as possible and layering when necessary.
  • Spread the rest of the mayo on the other slice. Top the sandwich and then butter the top.
  • Grill on medium for about 5 minutes, checking to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • Flip and continue grilling the other side. If the cheese has not melted by the time the bread is toasted enough, put a lid on the top for a couple of minutes to retain the heat and melt the cheese.
