Blackberry Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April 5, 2013

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, Foodista is serving up some of our favorite recipes for this classic American comfort food.  Cheese and fruit is a natural pairing.  The sharpness of the cheese complements the sweetness of the fruit or preserves.  This blackberry grilled cheese takes the flavor elements of a cheese plate and sticks them between two pieces of bread.

Blackberry Grilled Cheese


4 slices of french bread or any sturdy, thick bread of choice
2 tablespoons blackberry preserves
2 tablespoons walnuts, finely chopped
2 teaspoons butter
Butter one side of bread slices.
Spread preserves on unbuttered sides of bread.
Layer walnuts, green onions and cheese.
Top with other slice of bread, buttered side up.
Heat a thick bottomed pan over medium heat.
Grill assembled sandwiches buttered side down, flipping once to lightly brown both sides of sandwich.
Cook until cheese is melted.
Serve hot.
