Grilled cheddar and cherry preserves sandwich

I wasn't joking when I said I had a grilled cheese obsession. I have opened a door that seems limitless! This is what Willy Wonka must have felt like when he bit into his first piece of candy. The basic grilled cheese template is my blank canvas and all of the ingredient options are my paints, waiting to adorn my canvas in their own unique, flavorful way. Nothing is off limits. Fruit, veggies, sugar, bacon, seafood, salami, pesto, peanut butter, salsa. The world is my grilled oyster!

This particular concoction took me approximately 18 seconds to consume, from first bite to last. Who would have thought jam would be so good on a grilled cheese?

Butter one side of a piece of white bread. Place it butter-side down on a skillet over medium-low heat.

Layer with:

Black cherry preserves

Aged cheddar cheese

Alfalfa sprouts

Fresh basil

Top with:

Aged cheddar cheese

A piece of white bread, black cherry preserves-side down and butter-side up

When the cheese closest to the pan melts, carefully flip the sandwich over. When the other cheese slice melts, remove from heat. Cut sandwich in half and eat! I hope you love this one as much as I did!
