Goat cheese and strawberry grilled cheese

I love goat cheese. I mean I LOVE goat cheese. I love it stuffed in chicken, on a salad, on a pizza, in eggs, etc..It makes everything better! So when I saw this recipe on Josie’s blog, I had to make it. And I am soooo glad I did. IT WAS AMAZING! Definitely a hit for  lunch today! I love the cheese, sweet, spicy mix of this sandwich!


4 oz. goat cheese, softened
6 slices bread
5 tsp red pepper jelly
3/4-1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
6 large basil leaves, sliced thin
salt and pepper to taste

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
Spread one side of each slice of bread lightly with butter.  Flip the bread over, spread half the slices with pepper jelly, and top with half the goat cheese.  Lay the strawberry slices in a single layer, sprinkle with basil, salt, and pepper, then spread goat cheese on the remaining slices of bread.  Top the strawberry side with the remaining bread.
Cook sandwiches 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden-brown.  Serve.
