Lobster Grilled Cheese

Lobster Grilled Cheese
Best Grilled

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! If you are looking to buy a lobster grilled cheese we sell them as well!

On a large cutting board, butter one side of each slice of bread.

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!
