Grilled Cheese and Jelly Sandwich

Yes, you read that right.  Grilled Cheese and Jelly.  Grilled Cheese, while absolutely delicious all on it’s own, is a classic that you can easily add flavors to to take it to a whole new level.  A sweet delicious jelly or jam can make your grilled cheese say WOW.

A few months ago, I had a milestone birthday and my husband hosted a Wine Pairing Birthday Party for me and all our friends.  He picked the wines and made various small plates and one of them were these Grilled Cheese and Jelly Sandwiches.  Everyone was amazed on how good they were, and that he added jelly to a grilled cheese!

Of course, you can substitute other jams or jellies, feel free to experiment and have some fun with them.  I used a Sharp Cheddar Cheese from Cabot.  I love Cabot Cheese and if you are adding something sweet to your sammy, I think you need a cheese with an extra punch, and Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar is it.  Again, feel free to experiment and play around with your favorite cheeses too.

I made my sandwich in my Lodge Cast Iron pan, I bought my first one a few months ago and didn’t season it until just a few days ago!  I went to a #CookingWithCabot Sunday Supper Event here in Tampa (check out the Facebook Live Videos HERE and HERE) and it inspired me to season my pan and start using it.  And I am so glad I did!  The cast iron pan gets hot and cooks evenly. “Everyone from Martha Stewart to Campfire Cook Johnny Nix considers Lodge Foundry Seasoned Cast Iron Skillets essential cooking tools. They are perfect for any cooking method from stovetop to oven.” And I agree with ya, Lodge Cast Iron!

We paired these delightful little grilled cheese goddesses with a Chardonnay at my Wine Pairing Party…just in case you need an excuse to open a nice bottle of CK Mondavi, Charles Krug, or The Divining Rod wine 😉

  1. When I saw the title I thought “oh, gross. Like Kraft singles and grape jelly?”. But then, the pictures! This looks so good! A good white cheese and a little blackberry jam makes perfect sense. Yum!

  2. I’m a little bit skeptical on this one. I am all up for trying new things. I also feel some things may be better left untouched… lol!

  3. I must say…this sounds totally weird. However, the more I think about it….the better it sounds. I really want to try this. Sometimes you need to look outside of the box. Here’s a great example. 🙂
