$3 Dish of the Day: Vegan Turkey Grilled Cheese!

Posted February 24, 2011 by Ryan Huling

I have a theory in life: No problem is so big that it can’t be made better with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Throw in a couple slices of protein-rich vegan turkey though, and you’ve got yourself a bona fide meal sure to please anyone from ages 1–100 (sorry, 101-year-old singing, dancing marathon runner, no grilled cheese for you).


What you’ll need:

  • 2 slices of vegan turkey, $3.49 for a package of 12 slices, $0.58 for 2 slices
  • A handful of vegan cheese (Daiya is best), $4.69 for an 8oz. bag, $1.18 for a handful
  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread, $2.59 for a 22-slice loaf, $0.22 for 2 slices
  • 4 slivers of vegan butter, $5.59 for a tub, $0.36 for 4 slivers

Total: $2.34

First, you’ll want to spread margarine on both sides of each slice of bread, and then put them in a stove pan on low heat. Spread the vegan cheese and one slice of vegan turkey on top of each piece of bread, letting them heat up for about two minutes. When the cheese starts to melt, grab yourself a spatula, and flip one side, so that it’s a sandwich, and continue flipping until you get the golden-brown crispiness that dreams are made of.

    update- i looked at soy-sation and it turns out it isn’t vegan (im vegetarian) so vegans don’t use that for this sandwich…it has casein in it.

    This looked so good that I made it for lunch! It was really easy. I had soy-sation cheese that I used and it worked fine. I would recommend throwing one more piece of vegan turkey on it since the slices are usually sliced very thin…and it would still cost under $3. Yum!
