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!
