I love grilled cheese sandwiches, there are so many variations, the sky is the limit on what you can concoct. Of course you know how much I love goat cheese, so when I saw this sandwich for goat cheese and strawberry grilled cheese sandwiches (that also uses pepper jelly!) recently, I had to try it immediately.
The blog where I saw this commented that it is the pepper jelly that really makes this sandwich and she’s right. It’s the perfect blend of spicy and sweet, you can’t eat just one! We added a little on to the recipe by including Monterey Jack cheese and some crumbled bacon. Bacon makes everything better! My dad even tried this sandwich and really seemed to love it!
Sliced bread (I think thick slices of sourdough would be great!)
goat cheese crumbles
Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
bacon, fried and crumbled
red pepper jelly
fresh basil, washed and chopped
Butter the outsides of each slice of bread. On the inside of one of the slices, spread a generous layer of pepper jelly. Top with Monterey Jack cheese, bacon crumbles, strawberry slices, chopped basil and goat cheese crumbles. Grill on each side in a hot, greased pan until golden and the cheese is melted. Cut diagonally and enjoy!
