I have been enjoying the sweet and savoury combination of grilled cheese sandwiches with jam for a while. With my newly made mango and cardamom jam in hand the first thing that came to mind, after the required display of the jam on toast of course, was a grilled cheese sandwich with mango and cardamom jam. There is just something magical about that melted gooey, savoury, cheese contrasted with a sweet jam all wrapped up in golden brown buttery grilled bread…mmm… The grilled cheese sandwich with mango and cardamom jam met and even exceeded all of my expectations with the addition of the aromatic cardamom lifting it above other grilled cheese and jam sandwiches from the past.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Mango and Cardamom Jam
- 2 slices bread
- 1 tablespoon butter (room temperature)
- 2 slices cheese (cheddar, gruyere, etc.)
- 1 tablespoon mango and cardamom jam (or any jam)
- Assemble the sandwich and grill until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted.
