Blackberry Caprese Grilled Cheese

  • Yield: 4-6 large sandwiches or 12-16 baguette-slice-sized sandwiches 1x

Scale

Ingredients

For the Blackberry Goat Cheese:

  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 34 oz. fresh blackberries (about 1 handful)
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Sandwiches:

  • Fresh bread of your choice, sliced – I can get 4-6 large sandwiches out of this much blackberry goat cheese, or 12-15 baguette-sized ones
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • Blackberry goat cheese
  • Basil (I used 1-2 leaves per sandwich)
  • Fresh mozzarella (I used 1-2 slices per sandwich)
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

For the Blackberry Goat Cheese:

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender or small food processor.

For the Sandwiches:

  1. Spread one side of each piece of bread with a little bit of soft butter. Place half of the bread slices butter-side down on a skillet (I like cast iron) and spread a layer of blackberry goat cheese on the non-butter sides.
  2. Place basil on top of goat cheese and follow with a layer of mozzarella. Place remaining bread on top of sandwiches, butter side up. Turn the skillet on medium-high heat. I like to start with a cold skillet because it gives the cheese more time to melt as the skillet heats up, and the butter will still help the bread get crispy. This method ensures a crispy sandwich with super oozy, melty cheese! (YUM).
  3. Cook sandwiches 2-3 minutes on each side or until bread has lightly browned and cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
