Ahh, Monday morning. While the majority of you are groggily sipping your morning coffees, I am bouncing up and down in my chair. I I have been so excited to post this recipe, and today is finally the day! Say hello to Raspberry and Nutella Stuffed Grilled Cheese.

I’ve always been curious of grilled cheese with a sweet element, but haven’t got around to making one. That is, until now. And friends, I haven’t looked back. Mostly because I’m too busy polishing off my third G.C. this week.

Or is it fourth? Oh jeeze…

I can tell you a few reasons why they’re so mouth-watering. First and foremost, this cheese. Yummmmmm. I used Castello’s Aged Havarti, a semi-hard cheese with exceptional flavor. I’ve now eaten this cheese with everything- apples, rosemary crackers, stuffed peppers, and even on its own. The cheese has tangy and slightly nutty notes to it, which I just loved.

Which brings me to my next reason. The nuttiness of this cheese is a huge reason why it pairs so perfectly with Nutella. Yes, the chocolate hazelnut spread we all know and (hopefully) love. I did a few test batches of this G.C. with chocolate instead, and they paled in comparison to those with Nutella.

They pair together like Batman and Robin. Or like Chris Soules and Whitney (I mean, we all hope, right?).

(If you didn’t get that last reference, it’s OK. I don’t judge you. I judge myself.)

What I’m trying to say is: Havarti cheese pairs perfectly with Nutella. You can casually bring that fact up at your next cocktail party. You’re welcome.

Last, the raspberries. The cheese’s tanginess is well-accentuated by tart raspberry jam. And since Nutella pretty much goes with everything, the raspberries were a clear pairing. They provide a brightness to the grilled cheese that cuts the richness of the Havarti and Nutella.

Might I even say that the raspberries are the equivalent of an Oscar-nom’d best supporting actor.

I’m not sure where all these comparisons are coming from, but I’m going with it.

I hope this has added a little happiness into your day. And so all my friends and loved ones know, if you can’t find me this week, it’s probably because I’m in hibernation after eating this grilled cheese four times already. It’s that good.

XO!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 thick slices artisan bread (I used a local Farmhouse White)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 1.5 oz (or however many slices you’d like!) Castello Aged Havarti Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry jam

Instructions

  1. Heat a griddle or large pan on medium high heat until hot, then lower to just above simmering and let sit for 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, butter the outsides of your bread, spreading evenly to the edges. Place butter-side down and top one slice with Havarti cheese and the other with Nutella.
  3. Place both slices butter-side down in pan and cover with a lid. This will help your cheese to melt without burning your bread. Keep an eye on the toasted-ness of the bread and the melted-ness of the cheese. It should take 3-5 minutes to grill, depending on the strength of your flame.
  4. Just before taking the grilled cheese off the heat, spread the Nutella side with a spoonful of raspberry jam. Remove both slices from heat and sandwich together. Cut and serve immediately!

Girrrl, we are totally of the same mind! I have been thinking about how grilled cheese pairs with chocolate for the longest time. Havarti sounds like the perfect match.

And, I’m still sipping on my tea groggily.

I love fruity grilled cheese, and I have several on my site, but I have yet to add a chocolate element, which I have no doubt would be amazing. I’d love to try this.
