'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

  2. On one slice of the bread, place enough cheddar to cover the marmalade. Top with pea sprouts. Cover with second marmalade-coated slice.

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.
