  2. Red Pepper & Feta Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe
Sliced Red Pepper & Feta Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Did you know that April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Day? In my opinion, the not-so-humble grilled cheese needs an entire MONTH where we celebrate it. From last-minute dinners to the only thing my daughter would eat when she was 4, the grilled cheese sandwich is a household staple for my family.

I’ve happily partnered with Dempster’s again to bring you some new recipes featuring their products, and this time it’s all about having a #Breadventure. Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new, being a little more adventurous than usual.

What better way to try something new than changing up your normal grilled cheese?

While this is not the craziest grilled cheese out there, adding red peppers and herb feta cheese is probably going to make your kids do a double take. This is definitely going to challenge their taste buds and expand their taste horizons.

Those two cute little twerps above can be adventuresome with their eating but tend to stick to the safe side of food. Perhaps I should say three, as my husband hadn’t even tried curry until he was 30 years old! Root Beer, being a dog, will eat anything, so he doesn’t count and we all know that I’m always up for a culinary adventure!

These red pepper grilled cheeses are perfect to make while you are out camping, which is what we are doing in the photo above. You can make them on the campfire easily and the ingredients are ones that are simple enough to take with you. Jazz up your campfire menu, all it takes is some different cheese and some red pepper!

Outdoor adventures and new food adventures as a family, what could be better?

I chose to make the red pepper and grilled cheese sandwich on Dempster’s white bread. There is something so nostalgic about a good, crispy white bread grilled cheese, it just takes me back to my childhood.

The herb feta is simply spectacular in this, and of course, you must have Mozza cheese as well, you need something to hold it together.

Take a gander at that sandwich.

That ooey, gooey deliciousness right there is why you need the mozza cheese as well as the feta cheese. This is the grilled cheese of your childhood, amped up for your adult tastes.

    We’ll try anything for once, except hot peppers my kids don’t love those. But I would pick, rye bread, buttered with cheddar, mozzarella and sauerkraut.

  2. Juliee Fitze says

    I like experimenting with different cheeses on my sandwiches.

  3. binabug says

    MILDLY adventurous, esp as I have to take pills for heartburn LOL

  4. jemrah says

    fairly adventurous, I would say – I eat everything! my daughter experiments when she feels like it.

  5. Heidi P says

    Our family will try anything the first time and if they like it then we will make the same food item. With a panini press we have made all kinds of sandwiches #breadventure

  6. Diana Powell says

    I just bought a panini press so I think my #breadventure is about to begin !!!

  7. Tara B says

    I am not adventuresome at all. I like my plain grill cheese, I might try to add bacon.. My kids on the other hand will try anything and my son wants to try a chili grill cheese! #Breadventure

  8. disqus_TiF89YSMsu says

    My family is pretty adventuresome. We love adding things like bacon, tomato & avocado to our grilled cheese.

  9. Shirley S says

    My family’s #breadventure would be a grilled cheese with bacon and tomatoes. We are pretty adventurous when it comes to trying food.

  10. karla says

    my #breadventure would be a bacon onion mushroom grilled cheese!

  11. Amy says

    We are not that adventuresome. We usually just eat plan grilled cheese.

  12. Jenny says

    My husband loves to make different dishes now and then so we’ve become quite adventurous eaters. I think our family’s #breadventure would be a jalapeno popper grilled cheese.

  13. Dianne says

    Our #breadventure would be grilled vegetables and cheese on Dempster’s 12 Grain Bread. My family is pretty adventurous in food.

  14. Glogirl3 says

    My family’s #breadventure would be a grilled cheese with mozzarella, grilled chicken breast and avocado. For our family this would be adventurous!

  15. Jenny Major says

    Im into to trying new foods, i hope my family will feel the same way!

  16. Nicki D'Angelo says

    Perfect! I’ve already got all these ingredients in the fridge. Let’s see if the 5yr old is willing to take a #breadventure for lunch

  17. fossie55 says

    I love taking the grilled cheese adventure adding difference meats, veggies and eggs to them. #BreadAdventure

  18. Jane Reid Gray says

    Our #BreadAdventure would be everything and anything ! I love to get Bread creative with Bread Puddings either with English style Custard and lots of Vanilla or Soaked in Fruit. Of course Grilled Cheese with lots of Mustard is always a winner here.

  19. Rana Jeree says

    i would say a hot sub is our #breadventure and we are kinda of dadventerous .

  20. Jenn E says

    I’d say my family is somewhat adventurous. I think our breadventure would be a pepperoni inspired grilled cheese because it’s different but is a variation of something they already love.

  21. billiondollarprincesss says

    We are pretty adventurous. Our faves are clubhouse sandwiches.

  22. arress says

    My family are not adventurous when it comes to bread and or sandwiches.

  23. Andrea says

    I’m very adventurous to trying new foods but I know my kids aren’t!

  24. Stephanie says

    We are not very adventurous when it comes to trying food lol

  25. Travelbuds says

    Sometimes my 2 kids are adventurous when it comes to food and sometimes they aren’t. My son loves grilled cheese sandwiches so I think I could make any kind and he would like it. My daughter isn’t a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches so I couldn’t get her to eat any kind. The one posted above looks amazing and I would certainly try that one.

  26. Jonnie says

    We are not really adventurous eaters, accept when it comes to cheese. We make grilled cheese with a wide variety of cheese but I always come back to a nice sharp cheddar with bacon as my favorite.
