vegan bacon & swiss offering #1: grilled cheese

Recently I had to stop at a nearby health food store to buy my dad yet another BPA free water bottle (keeps breaking them!!) and decided to try a new-to-me Daiya item,

I had to settle for biting it. I definitely wished I had sprinkled on more of those bacony bits, but still, it was wonderful.
<not-so-subtle foreshadowing begins here> I started wondering what I else I could do with the combined powers of bacon and Swiss….

  4. Which Ezekiel bread do you like best? I think I like the sesame-seed one best. I get it at Meijer in frozen foods section. Makes really good toast with Earth Balance vegan butter!
