30 Days of Grilled Cheese with Land O’Lakes: Foie Gras Grilled Cheese with Cranberry Compote

Cooking / Eating In, Events / Giveaways / Partnerships


As April is National Grilled Cheese Month (yes, it’s true!), I was invited by Land O’Lakes to create an original grilled cheese sandwich using their Land O Lakes® Deli American Cheese.   My recipe is a part of their “30 Days of Grilled Cheese” celebration, with bloggers contributing recipes this whole month! Additionally, for the rest of this month, with its Pin a Meal, Give a Meal initiative, Land O’Lakes will donate $1 to Feeding America every time someone pins or repins a Land O’Lakes recipe on Pinterest.  That’s eight meals for a hungry family when you pin a recipe—and eight more every time anyone else repins it.  So far they’ve donated more than a million meals!

One of my favorite snacky suppers is foie gras pate with cranberry compote on mini-toasts.  I thought, why not try adding some cheesy meltiness to it and see how it goes? I admit I wasn’t sure how this would turn out until I took the first bite, but the result was decadent and delicious!  But don’t take my word for it – give it a try yourself!

You will need:


Foie Gras Grilled Cheese with Cranberry Compote

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 slices of good bread (I used challah)
  • 2 slices of Land O Lakes® Deli American Cheese
  • 3 tbsp foie gras pate
  • 2 tbsp cranberry compote

1. Butter one side of each slice of bread.

2. Place one slice of Land O Lakes® Deli American Cheese on each slice of bread (on the non-buttered side).  Spread foie gras pate and cranberry compote on top of cheese, then place the two pieces together.

3. On a heated skillet, heat sandwich through 3-4 minutes on each side, until cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.

As I mentioned, this sandwich was decadent, sweet, salty and gone in no time.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!  For more grilled cheese recipes from Land O’Lakes 30 Days of Grilled Cheese celebration, as well as to enter to win a panini maker, check out this link!

    aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
