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!
