Butternut and Sage Grilled Cheese

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I am so embarrassed to say that this post was supposed to be up in December.

Sadly, with the move I had no way of downloading pictures from my DSLR, so this little goodie is just a little late! Oh well, better late than never!

Did this photo make you drool as much as I just did? I hope so because this sammy is seriously the bomb. Like… explosion of fall/winter-ness in your mouth.



  • 2 slices of your favorite GF bread
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 1/2 butternut squash, peeled and sliced
  • sprinkle of salt and pepper
  • sprinkle of nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 oz of goat’s mozarrella, sliced
  • 4 sage leaves

For the garlic…Preheat the oven to 375.
Cut off the bottom 1/4 or so of the garlic bulb.
Peel off some of the paper and rub the bottom with olive oil.
Roast for up to 45 minutes, or until brown and soft.
Remove from the paper and mash in a bowl.
Set aside.

Increase the oven temperature to 400.
Place the butternut slices in the oven and roast for about 30 minutes, or until soft.
Heat a skillet with the coconut oil.
Add the roasted butternut and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
Sear on both sides until slightly browned.
Remove the squash and add the sage to the leftover oil.
Let brown.

Now, get your bread and spread the mashed garlic on both slices.
Add the squash, cheese, and browned sage.

Add a dab more coconut oil to the hot pan and grill your sandwich until cheese is melted and bread is browned.

Enjoy hot!
