Easy Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

My wife and I recently had lunch at Barrel House 101 in Ventura, California and I had their gourmet grilled cheese sandwich with apricot preserves and brie. It encouraged me to do some experimenting of my own.



  1. Spread the soft cheese on one slice of bread
  2. Spread the relish on the second slice
  3. If you want mustard, spread that on as well (I love it with mustard but my wife skipped that)

  1. Throw a hand full of shredded cheese in the sandwich
  2. Throw a handful of cheese in a non-stick pan, no need for butter or oil
  3. Heat until the cheese is partially melted
  4. throw another handful of cheese in the pan and flip the sandwich

  1. Cook until done on both sides

We have started experimenting with other spreads like Harry & David’s Relish Charred Pineapple which also worked well.

Total prep time is under 10 minutes.
