Cranberry Grilled Cheese

Who doesn't love a Grilled Cheese sandwich?  The ultimate sandwich from my childhood.   There are so many variations to this classic sandwich.  In this recipe, cheese is mixed with fresh cranberries and grilled.  What could be easier.

You can create an very tasty lunch in a matter of minutes.   The fresh cranberries added an extra zing to the sandwich and complimented the flavor of the cheddar cheese.  A perfect sandwich for enjoying during the fall season.

Cranberry Grilled Cheese
From Bon Appetit  Magazine


1/2 cup grated mild cheddar cheese
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries
4 slices sandwich bread
Unsalted butter
Dijon mustard


Combine cheddar with cranberries. Spread one side of 4 slices sandwich bread with butter; spread mustard over 2 slices and top with cheese mixture.  Close sandwiches.  Heat a dry medium skillet over medium and cook sandwiches, pressing down occasionally, until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes per side.

Makes 4 sandwiches


  1. I love spiced cranberry sauce or chutney on a sharp cheddar sandwich! This looks good.

  2. Hi Geraldine!
    Never in a million years would I think to make a Cranberry Grilled Cheese. Looks like both you and Mae are on the same wave length. I better try it someday. It sure looks tempting!

    Thanks for sharing, Geraldine...

  3. I need to make this too. It's so easy and delicious.

  4. Dear Geraldine, I have learned to really enjoy a Grilled Cheese Sandwich every once in a while but have never added cranberries to them - that sounds awfullly delicious to me!
    Thank you for yet another wonderful recipe!
