Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Green Tomato and Jalapeno Jam

Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Green Tomato and Jalapeno Jam


Now that I had my green tomato and jalapeno jam the question was; What to do with it? Since the green tomato and jalapeno jam reminded me of a chutney that got me to thinking about the grilled cheese sandwich with mango chutney that I had enjoyed so much. I figured that a grilled cheese sandwich with green tomato and jalapeno jam would be a perfect place to start trying out the jam. The first time that I tried adding a jam or chutney to a grilled cheese sandwich I was surprised by how well the sweet and savoury combination worked and since then I have been enjoying experimenting with different combinations. The grilled cheese sandwich with green tomato and jalapeno jam was no different and the sweet and savoury jam worked really well with the melted gooey cheese and the crisp and buttery grilled bread. After the flavours died down you were left with a nice warm in your mouth provided by the heat from the jalapenos. So far I am really liking this green tomato and jalapeno jam and I can't wait to use it again.

Elizabeth said...

Kevin...this looks great, as always! The bread in your recipes (especially the grilled sandwich recipes) always looks fabulous...do you make that too?

Kevin said...

Elizabeth: Fresh home made bread is so addictively food and I sometimes make my own. In this case though I used a whole grain store bought bread that contains quinoa and amaranth.

Joanne said...

Sweet and savory combinations cannot be beat. Especially not in grilled cheese sandwiches!

Man that sounds excellent. The only thing that could make it better is the addition of some high quality ham such as proscuitto, serrano, or black forest.
