Description

Traditional grilled cheese gets a makeover with blackberry goat cheese, basil and mozzarella!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BLACKBERRY GOAT CHEESE:
  • ¼ cups Goat Cheese
  • 4 ounces, weight Fresh Blackberries
  • 1 pinch Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • FOR THE SANDWICHES:
  • 10 slices Your Favorite Sandwich Bread (I Used A Large Italian Loaf)
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 10 whole Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 10 slices Fresh Mozzarella
  • 1 pinch Fresh Ground Black Pepper To Taste

Preparation

For the blackberry goat cheese:

1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender or small food processor. Set aside.

For the sandwiches:

1. Spread one side of each piece of bread with a little bit of soft butter. Place half of the bread slices butter-side down on a skillet (I like cast iron) and spread a layer of blackberry goat cheese on the non-butter sides.

2. Place 2 leaves of basil on top of the goat cheese and follow with a layer of mozzarella (I use 1 or 2 slices per sandwich). Place remaining bread on top of sandwiches, butter side up. Turn the skillet on medium-high heat. I like to start with a cold skillet because it gives the cheese more time to melt as the skillet heats up, and the butter will still help the bread get crispy. This method ensures a crispy sandwich with super oozy, melty cheese! (Yum).

3. Cook sandwiches 3-4 minutes on each side or until bread has lightly browned and cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
