Roast Beef and Blue Cheese Grilled Cheese

March 30, 2019


Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the butter on one side of each bread slice, dividing it evenly. Place one, buttered-side down, on a clean cutting board. Spread with the onion marmalade. Layer one slice of the Muenster, the roast beef, blue cheese, and the second slice of Muenster on top. Finish with the second slice of bread, buttered-side up.

Using a wide spatula, place the sandwich in the pan, cover, and cook until the bottom is nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the second side is browned and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes longer. Cut the sandwich in half, if desired, and serve immediately.
