Hey guys! I have one of my favorite and most-used recipes to share with you today. It's a blueberry grilled cheese, and I know that sounds odd. Consider this though, cheese tastes good with everything, as does bread. Also, cheese and fruit are notorious for being served together on cheese plates, and other various dishes. Something else people don't think about or haven't tried is this heavenly thing called melted brie, topped with honey. That is so good, I can't even talk about it.
Onto the weird grilled cheese! I first tried this because of Kristen, who included it in her cookbook. While I was a little skeptical, I didn't hesitate to try it, because I rarely hesitate to try anything with cheese. I was shocked though, at how good it ended up being! It's essentially your basic grilled cheese, but filled with a homemade blueberry compote that you whip up while you grill (read: fry) your first half of your sandwich. Another note: I started using mayo a while back instead of butter, because it's healthier (depending on your mayo) and mayo by nature is spreadable. Also, there's no taste difference that I can tell, and the mayo is how people get those golden, almost burnt sides to the sandwich. Try it, and try this sandwich. You'll thank me later! Recipe below.
Recipe: yields one sandwich
- bread of your choice
- white cheese (my go-to is havarti!)
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
Step one - Heat a skillet over medium high heat for your sandwich. Mayo your first slice of bread and toss into the pan. Put a slice of cheese on that, and heat another smaller skillet on medium high. Place your blueberries in the smaller skillet and drizzle with honey. Crush the berries with a fork and let that cook up for about 5 minutes.
Step two - Once your blueberries are cooked, pour them onto your half of your sandwich that's been cooking in the pan, then top the blueberries with your other slice of bread. Flip your sandwich once the cheese has melted, and cook for a couple more minutes. Serve with your favorite side and enjoy!
