Hog Island Grilled Cheese

By: Grilled Cheese, Please! 50 Scrumptiously Cheesy Recipes by Laura Werlin/Andrews McMeel Publishing

This fantastic Hog Island Grilled Cheese is one of the tastiest gourmet grilled cheese recipes. If you've never had a gourmet grilled cheese well you must get on that now! This sandwich is a delicious cheese explosion!


  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 8 sandwich-size slices pain au levain (or use sourdough bread)
  • 4 ounces Fromage blanc cream cheese (you can substitute Greek yogurt)
  • 4 ounces Gruyère cheese, coarsely grated (or use Comté or Swiss)
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • 4 ounces Havarti cheese, coarsely grated


To assemble:

  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place 4 slices, buttered side down, on your work surface.
  2. Spread the fromage blanc on each slice. Layer with the Gruyère, cheddar, and Havarti cheeses. You may need to use your hand to compress the cheese.
  3. Top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

Cooking for stovetop method:

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  2. Put the sandwiches into the pan, cover, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the undersides are golden brown.
  3. Turn the sandwiches, pressing each one firmly with a spatula to flatten slightly.
  4. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the undersides are well browned.
  5. Remove the cover, turn the sandwiches once more, and press firmly with the spatula once again.
  6. Cook for 1 minute, or until the cheese has melted completely. (You may need to peek inside to make sure.) |
  7. Remove from the pan and let cool for 5 minutes. Cut in half and serve.

For sandwich maker method:

  1. Preheat the sandwich maker. Follow directions for assembly above.
  2. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
