Dubliner and Berry Jam Grilled Cheese Sandwich — Get ready for National Grilled Cheese Day!

in Uncategorized

Dubliner and Berry Jam Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I’m back to pulling goodies out of my Kerrygold box, because April is National Grilled Cheese Month and this Sunday, April 12th, is National Grilled Cheese Day!  The Fuji family loves grilled cheese sandwiches in all forms—classic grilled cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches stuffed with veggies or other goodies, etc.  In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day this year though, I’m keeping it simple with a combination of sweet and savory, which I love.

Ingredients for Dubliner and Berry Jam Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

I picked up a loaf of White Chocolate Pecan artisan bread at Harmons Grocery (I am so sorry if you don’t live near a Harmons…seriously) and toasted the slices in a skillet with some Kerrygold Salted Butter (the salt adds extra flavor to the sandwich!).

Then I put slices of Kerrygold’s Dubliner cheese on half of the slices (on the toasted side) and spread some locally made raspberry blackberry jam on the toasted sides of the other slices, then put them together.  I finished them by toasting each side of the sandwiches in the skillet (with more butter of course).  The richness of the cheese combined with the slight tart sweetness of the jam is just plain good.  Happy grilled cheese-ing!

Dubliner and Berry Jam Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Makes 2 sandwiches

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons Kerrygold salted butter, divided into thirds
4 slices crusty artisan bread (I used white chocolate pecan artisan bread from Harmons Grocery)
3–4 ounces Kerrygold Dubliner cheese, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
3 tablespoons berry jam (I used a local raspberry, blackberry Jam)

Directions:
1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add one third of the butter. When the butter has melted and the foaming subsides, add the four slices of bread and cook, occasionally lightly pressing down and moving each slice of bread with a thin, flexible spatula (to enable more even toasting), until pale golden brown on the bottom side, about 2 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

2. Transfer the bread to a cutting board, with the toasted sides facing up. Arrange the slices of cheese on the toasted sides of two of the slices of bread and spread the jam evenly over the toasted sides of the other two slices of bread. Create two sandwiches, with the jam and cheese sandwiched in the middle.

3. Return the skillet to the heat over medium low and add another third of the butter. After the butter has melted, add the sandwiches and cook, moving them around occasionally, until they are a deep, golden brown color, about 5 minutes. Remove the sandwiches from the skillet with your spatula. Add the remaining butter, and when it has melted return the sandwiches to the skillet with the toasted sides facing up. Cook, moving them around occasionally, until the second sides are a deep, golden brown color, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

I have never heard of jam or jelly on grilled cheese–but upon reflection OMG that sounds good!
