You guys. I think I’ve been body snatched.

In fact, I’m not even sure who’s typing this right now, you may be reading the type-age of an alien.

I may be being SLIGHTLY (read: a lot, but what else is new) over-dramatic, but I am doing ALL THE THINGS that I promised myself I would never ever do.

It all began with these Sweet Potato Burgers.

I made a meatless burger. I liked it. I ate it again and again, and there may have been a few more agains. I was so anti meatless burgers before the massive amount of veggie burger consumption, that my identity slowly began to unravel. (again, a teeeeny bit dramatic)

And then there’s today. I’m completely and totally late…for National Grilled Cheese Month.

I’m that girl that is always “early or I’m late” and it drives the huberoni crazy. He’s more of “if I’m not late, I’m too early” kinda guy.

You can image the fun we have when we have to go to events that start a certain times not. Except not.

As long as you don’t live in some tree fort on a mountain top in Timbucktoo (what?) you must know about the awesome, cheese-filled month that April has been.

All my friends (Sidenote: Mr. FFF thinks it’s so funny that I call other food bloggers “friends” since we haven’t actually met. Just ‘cause he works with real people, he gets all judgey. Whatever. I make better cupcakes than him. So there) were making ooey-gooey-get-in-my-belly-yesterday sandwiches at the beginning of April.

But, guess who has two thumbs and waited till the very end of April to join the party? This girl.

Can we just call it “fashionably late” for the sake of I’m-not-sure-who-I-am-and-I-REALLY-don’t-want-to-be-an-alien-because-green-isn’t-my-color-so-I-need-my-abnormal-taylor-actions-justified? Great.

All talk of space creatures aside, I promise this grilled cheese sandwich is worth the wait. You know what, I’m even going to go as far as to say that I held out on you on purpose, for the sake of suspense.

Even if you didn’t know it was coming, so there really was no suspense. Whatever. You understand me.

If you are a fan of egg salad, you’ll totally be diggin’ this sammy. Can adding cheese to anything make it worse? Methinks not. Only better x 100.

Plus, it’s super easy and has ALL THE PROTEIN. You know how I feel about protein.

Even if I did make a meatless burger. CAN’T STOP QUESTIONING MY LIFE. GAH.

Best part about this? You can eat it for breakfast, since there is egg whites. You can eat it for lunch, since it’s a sandwich. And You can eat it for dinner, because I said so. And…cheese.

So, whenever you’re reading this, you should also be eating it. Capeesh?

    Hello!!

    Usually healthy and grilled cheese aren’t in the same sentence….but you did it and I don’t think you’re late to the grilled cheese month whole party deal.

    Looks scrumptious. And the protein. Gotta love it. Without protein, I just binge later. Who doesn’t? Everybody gets hungry and you have to eat something.

    Maybe add an avocado? Nervous about that but maybe…..just maybe….

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Thanks Laura!! I totally agree on protein, it’s a must at every meal!! An avocado would be delish! Lemme know if you try it!

    Egg salad is one of my favorite sandwiches. It’s one of those things that take you back to being little again…but then, so is grilled cheese! I LOVE that you combine the two and still keep it light! Such a great idea…I may give this a try for lunch today!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      I love egg salad for the same reasons you mentioned! Sometimes you gotta pretend you’re little again! Thanks Caroline! I hope that you love it girlfriend!

  3. Erin says

    This looks wonderful! I can’t wait to try it soon. I do have a question though, when should I add in the 3 TB of yogurt? I don’t see it mentioned in the recipe after the ingredient list.

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Thank you! And thank you for pointing our my error! It goes in the egg white mixture – I updated the recipe!!

    Hi Taylor,
    At least you knew April was grilled cheese month before it was May. I do not eat bread but I would scoop this on a salad :) Thanks for the recipe!

    1) This is such a creative combo 2) I’m totally the same way about calling other bloggers ‘friends’ lol 3) I’m also totally behind on this whole cheese thing, I’m doing my version of a grilled cheese in a week…see, i’m even later than you, so you’re all good 4) cheese DOES make everything better 5) you’re awesome, that is all :)

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Haha well i feel better about being late AND that I call other bloggers “friends!” Thanks Phi! Happy Monday girlfriend!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Haha Thanks Cate! I am totally gonna tell him that now! I’m glad you approve of the sandwich too! xoxo

    I hop, skipped, and jumped right over grilled cheese month and I have no CLUE how it happened! I’ve always, always loved me toasty bread with melty cheese and your egg salad sando version is straight up slaying me! Love this, my dear!

  7. says

    Better late than never! That’s what I always say. Especially when I’m running late, haha! This grilled cheese sounds DELISH! I really should make egg salad more. Everytime I eat it I think, “Man this is good! I should make this weekly.”

    • Taylor Kiser says

      HAHA! YES to when running late!
      I’m the same way! I rarely eat it, and then wish I ate it for ALL THE MEALS! Thanks lovely!

  8. says

    UGH – I am THAT person – THAT person that lives in Timbucktoo because I had no clue that April was the “awesome, cheese-filled month” of the year! Heck – better late than total ignorance eh?
    :)
    My next statement might have you wanting to kick me right back to Timbucktoo – because I am not a huge fan of grilled cheese! BUT – and there is a BUT – your version -stuffed with egg salad (which is sheer genius by the way) I could throw down on!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Haha YES! better late than never girlfriend!
      YOU DON’T LIKE GRILLED CHEESE! I would kick you to Timbucktoo, but I love you, so I wont…especially since you could be into the egg salad version :D

  9. says

    I would have never thought to make an egg salad sandwich out of cooked eggs, how creative! It sounds delicious, like a mix between a breakfast sandwich and lunch sandwich. I guess that would be brunch, haha! Also, it is never too late to celebrate national grilled cheese month! :)

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Thanks Isadora! It’s super yummy…and you’re right, perfect for breakfast, lunch…or brunch! ;)

  10. says

    You are the cutest little wizard in the kitchen. Can I come watch you cook/bake/create sometime soon!? Puhhhleeaassee! This is genius. I would have never thought to jam these two things together in a sandwich! xo Pinned!

  11. says

    It’s never too late for grilled cheese, especially one with egg salad! I’m totally crushing on this sandwich. Egg salad and cheese are two of my favorite things to eat, love how you combined them! Pinned!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Wouldn’t that be awesome! I think cupcakes are more important than his life-saving nurse skills anyway :)
      Thanks Chris! :D
