Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese

December 8th, 2008

I love grilled cheese. I’m always trying to think of new and exciting combinations for this simple, yet delicious staple. Yesterday, while rifling through the fridge, I found some goat cheese that I needed to use. And staring me right in the face, was some 12-grain Brownberry bread. So…it just made sense to put the two together. I also had some fresh honey, and some pinenuts, and POOF! A sandwich idea was born.

Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese
Recipe from Julie Foxworthy

INGREDIENTS:

Any kind of soft goat cheese
Honey
Pine nuts
Butter
2 pieces of any kind of hearty bread (I prefer a heartier bread for my grilled cheese, so that it brings some texture into the mix)

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Toast your pinenuts with the butter in a saute pan, until lightly browned. Drain them on a piece of paper towel to absorb extra butter.
  • Spread a layer of goat cheese on your bread (whatever amount you like)
  • Drizzle honey over the goat cheese to form a nice thin layer
  • Sprinkle toasted pinenuts over cheese and honey, then cover with 2nd slice of bread.
  • Preheat a small saute pan on medium heat, so you have a hot pan.
  • Lay sandwich in pan, with butter side down, and gently butter the other side of the sandwich while in the pan.
  • Grill each side until golden brown, and bread is crisp, not soggy.

I had mine with a little dollup of cranberry chutney. YUM.
