I found this recipe on a vegan blog. It sounds absolutely yummy and I can't wait to try it (with real bacon and cheese) but then I'm not vegan, if I was I certainly wouldn't be eating tofurkey or dairy free cheese.
Anyway, I am confused here, why would anyone who claims they are vegan want to eat meat and dairy substitutes?
Can anyone explain it?
Raspberry and “Bacon” Grilled Cheese Sandwich
8 strips of Tofurky bacon (or vegan bacon of your choice)
Applewood smoked sea salt
4 slices of bread (the heartier, the better)
3-4 T of raspberry jam
1 ripe pear, thinly sliced (pop any slices that don’t fit on the sandwiches right into your mouth!)
About 1/3 wedge of Daiya Jack, sliced
2 T Earth Balance
Preheat pan to medium-high heat.
Heat bacon thouroughly, according to package instructions, sprinkling with a little of the smoked sea salt. Set aside.
Take 2 slices of bread, butter one side of each, and spread 1/4 of the jam on the other side of each, then place in pan EB-side down (jam side up!).
Layer each with the pears, the tofurky bacon and the cheese.
Turn heat to low and cover pan with a lid, to let the cheese get as melty as possible. This should just take a minute or two- you don’t want your bread to burn OR get too soggy!
Once the cheese is melty, spread butter and remaining jam on either side of the two remaining pieces, the add to pan (butter side up), then flip everything over so it can brown on the other side.http://thatwasvegan.wordpress.com/2012/05/11/pear-raspberry-and-bacon-grilled-cheese-sandwich-revisited/
