Vegan Grilled Cheese - Three Ways! Cranberry Pecan Provolone Vegan Grilled Cheese

Make the most of your holiday leftovers with this sweet and savory grilled cheeze sandwich!

I used my go-to slow cooker cranberry sauce (I have some tucked in the freezer at all times) and used brown sugar in place of the honey in the sauce to make it 100% vegan. Easy peasy!

This recipe also works gloriously with conventional cheese if needed for all my vegetarian friends!

Want to maximize your Thanksgiving leftovers? Make your grilled cheese a panini by piling it high with leftover stuffing, mashed potatoes, sliced apple, etc… for the ultimate next day sammie. SO GOOD!

Vegan Cranberry Pecan Grilled Cheese

Recipe Serves 1 and is easily doubled or tripled as needed!



  1. Spread cranberry sauce on each slice of bread.
  2. Top one slice with a sprinkle of crushed toasted pecans and Daiya Provolone Style Slices and top with the remaining slice.
  3. For an extra golden crust, spread the outside of each slice of bread with vegan buttery spread or coconut oil.
  4. Next heat a pan to medium heat with some extra buttery spread or coconut oil. Once hot, add your sandwich. Use a spatula to press down on the grilled cheese, and feel free to pop a clear pot lid on top to help melt the slices. Before flipping, add a little more spread/oil if your pan is dry. Pop your lid back on if you’re using one and grill each side until golden brown with a melty center.

MELTY GRILLED CHEESE TRICK: For the meltiest sandwich ever, pop it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds or so after grilling for the most epic vegan cheese pull of all time!
