Blueberry, Apple & Balsamic Grilled Gouda

15 min
Recipe courtesy of Julie Andrews


  • Grilled cheese sandwiches are delicious savory, but can also be served sweet! Try this concoction of juicy blueberry compote, crisp granny smith apple slices, sweet cinnamon, a drizzle of tart balsamic reduction and melted Gouda, all sandwiched between cinnamon raisin bread and toasted to perfection. 1. Heat a small saucepan to medium-high heat. Add blueberries and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer 10-12 minutes, periodically smashing blueberries with the back of a fork, until soft and jam-like. Remove from heat. 2. Heat a panini press to medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Place one slice of bread on the panini press and top with one slice of gouda and sliced apples. Spoon blueberry compote onto the apples, sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with balsamic reduction. Top with second slice of gouda. Place second slice of bread on the top and close the lid of the panini press. Allow to cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 3-4 minutes. 3. Slice in half and serve. Serves 1


¼ cup blueberries fresh or frozen
