Exhale. Not sure how to spell that sound so do it with me…in through the nose out through the mouth. We’ve made it half way through April aka National Grilled Cheese Month and have proudly shared a unique grilled cheese sandwich each day on our Facebook page.
The feedback has ranged from “Speechless” to “Girl. Giiiiiiirl. Yowza!!” to “I’m dreaming of Lobster Corn Chowder reconstructed into a grilled cheese.” That was too good to ignore. Thank you for the inspiration Sarah Mitchell. Here is my version of your request. Roasted Lobster & Corn Cake Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
I took my favorite ingredients from Lobster Corn Chowder and flame roasted them before combining with fresh bread crumbs, seasonings and an egg white to bind it all together.
As it turns out, my ‘cakes’ didn’t want to stay together all that well. So I sandwiched them between some crusty bread and covered them in a blanket of shredded pepper jack cheese. I think that did the trick.
As I was picturing this beauty the sun came out for the first time all day. I love the warmth it gives this picture. Roasted Lobster & Corn Cake Grilled Cheese Sandwich has just inched it’s way onto my favorites list. Hope you enjoy it too.
