'Wich of the Week: Sweet Summer Grilled Cheese

'Wich of the Week: Sweet Summer Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese sandwiches are typically a wintertime comfort food, but add some summery farm-stand flavor, and this favorite sandwich adopts an easy, breezy attitude for the warmer months. I got the idea for this recipe when I scored a jar of delicious strawberry and meyer lemon marmalade from Blue Chair, which has an effervescent citrus flavor and a hint of rosiness. With fresh green pea sprouts, it transforms the grilled cheese from classic cold-weather meal into a tribute to Summer farmers markets.

If you can't find this brand of jam, try mixing a lemon or orange marmalade with traditional strawberry jam for a similar fruity flavor. The aged Irish cheddar provides a perfect salty counterpoint. To get the recipe and step-by-step photos,

2 slices honey wheat bread
Butter for spreading
3 tablespoons strawberry-lemon marmalade
3-5 slices aged cheddar cheese

  2. On one slice of the bread, place enough cheddar to cover the marmalade. Top with pea sprouts. Cover with second marmalade-coated slice.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, grill the sandwich for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Pea shoots? Never heard of them except as the origin of actual peas. I need to get out more! I am sure this is delicious and that spinach could be substituted for the more exotic pea shoots.

When I first saw this I thought the Sprouts were Spinach and wanted to see the recipe for it. I'm not to sure about the sprouts and the strawberry-lemon marmalade, but I am intregued. Does anyone have a grilled cheese recipe for fresh spinach?
