Comfort Food Recipe: Grilled Cheese with Kraut

Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich? This comfort food makes us dream of when Mom brought the skillet to cook up a gooey, crunchy stack of goodness. If that’s a kid’s (or a grown kid’s) dream, then this simple, grilled cheese with sauerkraut recipe is the adult version. Since our kraut remains crisp in the fridge, the added texture and flavor are a big bonus. Pair with some soup and you’re all set to relive those childhood memories.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED

2 slices of your favorite bread
1 T. butter
1/2 c, wildbrine® Raw Organic Red Sauerkraut, drained
2 slices jack cheese or cheese of choice

TIME

5 minutes

YIELDS

1

DIRECTIONS

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place slice of cheese on a non-buttered side of bread. Spread on Sauerkraut and then top with another slice of cheese. Place the other slice of bread on top of sandwich with butter side facing out. Cook in frying pan until cheese is melted over medium heat, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Comments

kasie

Does heating the sauerkraut negate the probiotic benefit of the sauerkraut?

The wild Bunch

Hi Kasie – Yes, it does. Any fermented food that reaches around 105 degrees or so and beyond does lose its probiotic potency. But not its flavor and nutrients. For this recipe, it’s still tasty if you add the kraut at the end.
