Lobster Grilled Cheese
How do you take an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich and turn the flavor volume up to eleven? Simple: just add lobster. The contrast between our fresh, rich, buttery, fluffy, sweet lobster meat and melty, slightly tangy sharp cheddar (not to mention crunchy, salty buttery bread) is a beautiful thing. Think of it as a Down East twist on a classic that allows you to get more mileage out of your lobster meat—this recipe yields four generous sandwiches, and if you add a cold, crisp pickle spear and some potato chips, you have a meal that will satisfy and delight a group of hungry foodies. To save time, order your lobster pre cooked and de-shelled, bibs optional!
Recipe created by Vanessa Seder for Maine Lobster Now®
Chop lobster into ½-inch pieces and set aside..
On a large cutting board, butter one side of each slice of bread.
Flip bread over, then layer half of the un-buttered sides with a slice of cheese, lobster, fresh herbs if desired, and another slice of cheese. Top with the remaining slices of bread buttered-side up.
Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches in batches, if necessary, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Slice each in half and serve immediately. Enjoy!
