Blueberry Cobbler Cheddar & Bacon Grilled Cheese

Yield: 2 Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices artisan sour dough bread
  • 4 Tablespoons of salted butter, softened
  • 6 ounces, about 1 full cup, Great Midwest® Blueberry Cobbler Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried or 4 Tablespoons of blueberry fruit spread
  • 2 slices thick sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled into large pieces

Instructions:

Heat a large nonstick skillet or a heavy bottomed cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Generously butter one side of each slice of bread.

Sprinkle the unbuttered side of the bread with 1-1/2 ounces of the shredded cheese and then arrange half of the blueberries over the cheese. Sprinkle the bacon and then cover the bacon and blueberries with the other 1-1/2 ounces of cheese (this will glue the sandwich together). Top with the other slice of bread, buttered side out. Each sandwich will have 3 ounces of cheese 1/8 of a cup of blueberries and 1 slice of bacon.

Press the sandwich down and then carefully transfer to the hot skillet.

Cook the sandwich for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until each side is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
