Maine Lobster Grilled Cheese by Erin Alvarez on behalf of the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
2 slices sourdough bread (or bread of choice)
1 tbsp butter, softened
3 slices Gouda cheese
1 oz. Gruyère cheese, thinly sliced/cubed (see photos)
½ cup cooked Maine Lobster meat, roughly chopped
⅛ tsp Old Bay seasoning, or more to taste
- Butter one side of both slices of bread, then place them butter-side down into a large, nonstick skillet. Distribute the cheese evenly on top of both slices, then turn the heat to low, place a lid on the skillet, and cook for 5 minutes.
- While the cheese is melted, place the lobster meat in a bowl, and then sprinkle the old bay seasoning on top. Stir to combine.
- Remove the lid from the skillet and place the seasoned lobster meat on top of one piece of bread. Place the other slice on top, forming a sandwich, and use a spatula to press it down.
- Turn the heat up to medium and cook for 2 minutes, then flip the sandwich over and cook for 1-2 more minutes until the bread is golden brown. Slice and enjoy!
