How to Make a Grilled Cheese with a Raspberry Twist

This is a grilled cheese recipe with raspberry jelly, which gives it an extra bit of sweetness and flavor. This is not your typical sandwich-you won’t need bread for this one!

Grilled cheese is a popular sandwich that can be served with many different toppings. One of the most common is raspberry jam. Here, I show you how to make a grilled cheese with a raspberry twist.

Day 15 of the AoM sandwich experiment has arrived. We asked readers for their favorite sandwich choices last month. We chose 20 entries out of 483 to feature on the site each daily in April. Finally, we’ll compile all of the entries into a massive man-sandwich cookbook. Enjoy.

Luke’s Grilled Cheese with a Twist is today’s sandwich.

One of the factors I used to choose which sandwiches to feature this month was if the sandwich took me outside of my usual sandwich comfort zone. That’s why I chose Luke’s grilled cheese submission. It contains a cheese I’m unfamiliar with (muenster), as well as raspberry preserves, pecans, and green onions. If I saw this on a restaurant menu, I wouldn’t give it a second thought because of its strangeness and would go on to the meatier options. Here’s to broadening your culinary horizons. Let’s watch what happens with Luke’s lunch.

Notes from the Tasters

Vintage tasting sandwich.

Teddy Roosevelt, the adorable infant. This is one of the most delicious sandwiches I’ve had this month. All of the tastes complement one other well. Each taste is the perfect balance of sweetness and umami. There isn’t a single taste that overpowers the others. In addition, muenster has become my new favorite cheese. I’m looking forward to making this again.
