Roman Meal Oaxaca Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Avocado Jalapeno Dipping Sauce

#sponsored Disclaimer: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Roman Meal. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

With two growing boys in my house we eat a lot of sandwiches, and when I say a lot, I mean a lot. About 20 minutes after I feed one of my kids they are hungry again, and still stay bean pole thin. While I make most of my bread from scratch there are weeks when my schedule is tight and we rely on store bought bread. When buying bread from the store I like to try to pick the freshest and healthiest options for my family. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Roman Meal bread and create a recipe in my home kitchen. 

So what is Roman Meal bread? Roman Meal bread is baked locally at regional bakeries all across the United States. They have partnered with more than 90 regional bakeries to bring freshly baked bread to your local grocery store as part of their “Baked Fresh Locally” initiative. These partnerships make it possible for Roman Meal bread to never be frozen and not have to travel long distances. 

Their Roman Meal Whole Grain's are a good source of Vitamin D, calcium, and fiber. The breads are made from a sweet and soft whole grain blend of whole wheat, whole rye, wheat bran, wheat germ and flaxmeal, with hints of honey and molasses. The Roman Meal Company was one of the first companies to offer whole grain bread nationwide. 

I received a package of Roman Meal bread to make a recipe in my home kitchen. Since updated grilled cheese sandwiches are all the rage right now in the foodie community I came up with a recipe for an Oaxaca Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Avocado Jalapeno Dipping Sauce. The recipe is as follows. 

Oaxaca Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Avocado Jalapeno Dipping Sauce

  • 2 slices Roman Meal bread
  • sliced Oaxaca cheese
  • 2 large avocados
  • 2 large jalapeños
  • 2 large peeled garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • pinch cilantro
  • salt to taste
Cooking Directions
  1. Assemble grilled cheese sandwich, buttering outside of bread. 
  2. Grill sandwich on either an indoor griddle or skillet until bread is browned and cheese has melted.
  3. Add jalapeños and garlic to a heated skillet over medium heat.
  4. Cook shaking the skillet for approximately 5 minutes, or until the jalapeño is blackened on all sides.
  5. Stem and seed the jalapeño and then add to blender along with garlic and remaining ingredients.
  6. Slowly add 1/2 cup water and puree until smooth.
  7. Transfer to a bowl and serve alongside the grilled cheese sandwich.

  1. I love grilled cheese look delicious!

    1. Thanks, nothing beats a great grilled cheese sandwich :)

  2. What a fabulous business model. I adore freshly baked bread from local bakeries, but it's just so much easier to buy it at the market sometimes. I'll be on the lookout next time I'm grocery shopping. And this grilled cheese sounds amazing. You have me just with the dipping sauce if we're being totally honest!

    Luci’s Morsels – fashion. food. frivolity.

    1. It is a great business model. Fresh always tastes so much better :)

  3. OK I'm reading your story and thinking, that is so my family. My boys ages 13 and 9 wants to eat me out of house and home and yet they stay thin as well. I couldn't do it. As for that sandwich that looks really good. I don't have all the ingredients but I am so going to have to get them to give this a try.

    1. Glad I'm not alone :) By the time they are teenagers I think I am going to be cooking all day in order to keep them fed :)

  4. Love me a nice hot grilled cheese sandie!

  5. Who could ever resist a good grilled cheese sandwich! I surely can't!

    1. Thanks :) The dip is nice since it has a little bit of heat!

  7. I like that there's Jalepenos in it. I love when all of my kiddos are together. When the oldest two come home to visit though (they're both grown and live in different states) the grocery budget goes way up. ;)

    1. My two are already eating me out of house and home :) By the time they are teenagers, I don't even want to think about how much food they will eat!!!

  8. mmm...i love a good grilled cheese, but have yet to make one myself, lol! i should make it my goal to perfect it as it would be perfect for chilly weekends with soup!

    i love cheese, but had to google this one!

    1. Grilled cheese would be a great side to chilly this fall :) There are so many different cheeses I often have to use Google!
