This easy blackberry grilled cheese is the perfect gourmet twist on a classic sandwich!


  • 8 slices crusty bread (we like using our crusty artisan bread or a nice sourdough!)
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces (about 1/2 cup) goat cheese, softened
  • 4 ounces fresh blackberries (about 1/2 cup), cut into quarters
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, sliced
  • 2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) fresh mozzarella , torn into small pieces



Additions and Substitutions. Add crispy bacon or prosciutto for some extra protein. Swap the blackberries for blueberries, strawberries, peaches, or pears. Use pesto in place of the fresh basil if you like. Replace some or all of the cheeses with brie, white cheddar, whipped feta, or havarti.

How should I soften the butter and goat cheese? We recommend taking them out and letting them come to room temperature for 15-30 minutes before you assemble your sandwiches! The goat cheese will soften more quickly than the butter; if your butter is still too cold, check out this tutorial to soften butter quickly.
