Lobster Grilled Cheese

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 people
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!

Ingredients List

  • 8 slices country-style white bread
  • 28 large slices sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 a stick) salted butter, softened
  • 1 lb. pre-cooked fresh lobster meat
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, and chives, if desired

Cooking Instructions:

1. Chop lobster into ½-inch pieces and set aside..

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

3. 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.

4. 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!
