We’re so excited to get back into the community – this time alongside Furlani Foods – to be a part of this year’s Grilled Cheese Challenge! An iconic event in South Etobicoke, they’ve (finally!) returned and we’re grilling and giving back.
Ready to face the competition, Women’s Habitat staff and volunteers have one simple question:
Are you Fun or Fierce?
We will be serving up two versions of our signature sandwich: Choose from our official entry, the subtly spicy Fierce (that packs some power), or kid-friendly Fun (for the mild and casual). Both featuring Furlani Garlic Texas Toast in a spiced mac-and-cheese grilled cheese creation, sold for $5 each, and simple to recreate at home… as you’ll see below!
The Grilled Cheese Challenge represents the neighbourhood in so many ways, and we’re so excited to be with everyone again to share a little of our ‘flavour’ as well. So, support local and come on down!
This event is open to the whole family – kids and canines included. Fun and food for everyone!
We’ll also have water and treats available, but please note – we will be cash only. All of our proceeds are going straight to our programs and services…. making it a pretty delicious way to donate.

Interested in making your own?
- Simply start with a slice of Furlani Garlic Texas Toast* on a frying pan.
- Set to medium heat. As it warms, add a slice of processed cheese, then approximately 1/3c of prepared boxed macaroni and cheese (to which you can add up to 1tbs of spice for a little kick), another slice of cheese, and top with another Furlani Texas Toast.
- Grill for 3-4 minutes from there, flip and cook another 3-4 minutes (or until you have golden brown outside with an ooey-gooey inside).
- Cut, plate, and serve! Ketchup and/or hot sauce optional.
