Just lettin’ you know that this fall-flavored ooey-gooey sandwich is sponsored by my friends over at Sabra, the makers of all things creamy and delicious!
Turn a hummus sandwich into a gluten free grilled cheese that has the creamy, flavor of pumpkin! It’s a healthier version that’s perfect for fall lunches or dinners!
With a little bit of spinach dancing between them.
You know to fill the “eat green things because they’re good for you” quota.
Really though. This grilled cheese sandwich is one for the BOOKS. The epic cheesy factor that you’re about to smash into your ridiculously-easy-to-make-food loving mouths is a little OUT OF CONTROL.
But, like I told ya in the Mexican Zucchini Lasagna, we don’t do dairy often here on FFF….but when we do?
EPIC CHEESE TOWN BABY.
I am going to warn for 2 seconds. This week? There’s even going to be ANOTHER pumpkin recipe.
I know. I KNOW. We JUST ate pumpkin edible cookie dough cups, paleo pumpkin magic cookie bars and pumpkin paleo cookies. But, I can’t stop. Won’t stop. Not even going to apologize because pumpkin is <3.
E-S-P-E-C-I-A-L-L-Y when you swirl it together with Garlic Herb Sabra Spreads!
Have you heard of the newest, freshest, trendiest, EASIEST and SUPER convenient way to get your hummus fix? Sabra has a brand-spankin’-new line of wholesomely DELICIOUS refrigerated spreads that are STRAIGHT-UP designed to take your usual ho-hum sandwiches from here to HEREEEEEEEEE.
You know what I’m trying to say.
Side note: They come in a squeeze bottle. Which makes it easy to SQUEEZE that hummus RIGHT into your mouth.
Not that I tried it or anything. A friend did. Her name was just also Taylor.
Not only are these hummus spreads so mouthwateringly DELISH, have an insane level of freshness that you can ACTUALLY taste, PLUS PLUS PLUS have 75% less fat than mayo, but they A-L-S-O come in 3 different flavors.
3 ways for your hummus addicted self to mix it up, switch it up……and eat ALL.THE.HUMMUS.[Tweet “Switch up your grilled cheese and add some #pumpkin and #SabraSpreads! @Sabra”]
So, grilled cheese. You might think of them as reserved for people under 4 feet, who carry Hello Kitty backpacks and ride school buses. BUT, my friends, let me just expose you to the fact that you too CAN create the world’s most perfect, ooey-gooey cheese grilled sandwich that is adult-approved.
It’s even a little FAAANCY.
You may wonder about the pumpkin in here. I feel ya. BUT, remember last years pumpkin hummus? just TRUST.
When slightly-sweet pumpkin gets up close and personal with Garlic Herb Sabra Hummus Spread, they dance together in the perfect food tango of savory-sweet, creamy sandwich-making YUM.
And with that melty HIT of salty Parmesan and ridiculous CRUNCH of toasty bread?
Salty. Sweet. Savory. <– CRAVING this HARD right now.
Using a magical combo of pumpkin and hummus add a VRY needed “creamy” factor here. If you’re going to do grilled cheese, it needs to be moist and melty and ooey-gooey. Which USUALLY means 4 pounds of cheese.
Which, as super tasty as that is, is noooooot the best choice we can make for the general healthiness of ourselves, you know?
This topping BRINGS IT in a way that won’t make you notice that you only had to use 1 measly little ounce of cheese on your crispety-golden-brown bread to fulfill all your comfort-food-grilled-cheese-needs.
Look at you go.
Mind-tricking your taste buds one creamy-crunchy-CHEESY-fall-flavored bite at a TIME.
Food Jedi status? ACHIEVED.
Gluten Free Grilled Cheese Hummus Sandwich with Pumpkin
- 1 tsp Extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 Slices Gluten free whole grain bread
- 2 Oz Parmesan cheese sliced
- 1/4 Cup Canned pumpkin puree
- 2 Tbsp Garlic Herb Sabra Spreads
- In a large pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat.
- Divide the cheese between 2 of the slices of bread.
- In a small bowl, stir together the pumpkin and Sabra spreads. Divide between the two cheese-covered slices of bread and gently spread out evenly. Top with as much as spinach as you'd like, and cover with the other slice of bread, gently pressing it down to adhere it to the hummus/pumpkin combo.
- Place the sandwiches into the heated pan, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and cook until toasty and golden brown and the cheese begins to melt, about 2-3 minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn!
- Use a spatula to carefully flip each sandwich over and cook until the alternate side is crunchy and golden.
