Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Mango Chutney

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Mango Chutney


One of my favorite ways to enjoy mango chutney is in a grilled cheese sandwich and the timing couldn't be better as April is grilled cheese sandwich month. Panini Happy is hosting a grilled cheese pageant to celebrate and I thought that I would share one of my favorite takes on a grilled cheese sandwich. A couple of years ago I would never have thought to use something like mango chutney in a grilled cheese sandwich but then I tried a monte cristo sandwich which is basically a ham and cheese sandwich that is cooked like French toast and commonly served with strawberry jam. I was immediately hooked on the sweet and savoury combo and I have been making grilled cheese sandwiches with jam ever since. Shortly after discovering mango chutney I had the idea of trying a grilled cheese sandwich with it and now the mango chutney grilled cheese sandwich is one of my favorites! The sweet, tangy and spicy mango chutney goes surprisingly well with ooey gooey melted cheese wrapped in perfectly grilled golden brown bread!

Any chutney and cheese is a great combo, I also really like brie with black cherry jam. Like you I really like sweet and savoury combined. My friend invited me for lunch the other week and made a mango chutney sauce to serve with grilled tuna steaks, which was delicious.

This is a brilliant idea. We're cooking LOTS of grilled cheese over at Pithy and Cleaver, so I'm a teeny bit tired of it, but this one is inspiring!

Truly one of the best uses of mango chutney that there is. We just did this the other day!

Astra Libris said...

Oh wow, your sandwich looks incredible!! I love your sweet and savory grilled cheese idea - I just made a big batch of chutney (a simple apple cumin chutney, though - not quite as scrumptious-looking as your mango chutney :-), so I think this is the perfect occasion to give some grilled cheese and chutney a try! :-) Thank you for the great idea!

Marta said...

The sweet & savory combo is certainly a winner. This photo looks so appetizing... I'm grabbing my afternoon snack right now!

I do sort of the same thing, but I use strawberry jalapeno jelly, or raspberry chipotle jelly and a slice of smoked turkey or ham. YUM! Yours looks delish!

Marc @ NoRecipes said...

Putting mango chuntney into grilled sandwich is one of my favourite things. I think its something that started as a kid when I used to visit my dad in Australia and he used to have this sandwich maker I'd use to throw together a quick lunch. Looks delicious with meted cheese!

The Cooking Photographer said...

This recipe is brillant! I am really glad you posted this one.

Jan said...

I'm not surprised that this is one of your faves, it sounds delish.

Jeanne said...

When I was a kid, one of my favourite treats was a toasted cheese and jam sandwich - great minds think alike!
