Three Cheese and Orange Zest Sandwich Grilled on the BBQ

A grilled cheese sandwich can be anything you want it to be.

It can be a simple old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich made with white bread and Velveeta cheese.

Or it can be a fancy grilled cheese sandwich made with all kinds of goodies like bacon, green chilies, grilled onions, or you name it.

I came across a grilled cheese sandwich at a restaurant recently that had orange zest in it. 

It was such a unique idea to add orange zest that I just had to make it myself.

In this orange zest grilled cheese recipe there are 3 cheeses; string cheese, crumbled blue cheese, and Gouda cheese.

But, that’s not all. 

This sandwich is grilled on the BBQ which gives it a super delicious crunch, a hint of smokey flavor, and fun grill marks on the bread.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Zest from an orange, crumbled blue cheese, sliced Gouda cheese, string cheese, butter, and your favorite sandwich bread (I used sourdough bread).
 

Here’s how to make it.

Heat the grill on medium heat.

Then zest the orange…..

…..peel the string cheese, and

slice the gouda cheese.

Next, spread the softened butter on both sides of the bread.

Add the buttered slices of bread to the grill. 

Cook until there are light grill marks on one side (about 4 minutes) then turn the pieces of bread over.

Add the string cheese to each side of bread that has the light grill marks on it.

Next, add the blue cheese,

the orange zest, and

the sliced gouda cheese.

Then close the lid on the BBQ for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and there are grill marks on the bread that is grill-side down.

In a small bowl, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside for just a moment.

Next, turn one of the pieces of bread with the melted cheese over, and on to the other piece of bread with melted cheese to make a sandwich.

Then brush the melted butter on to the top and bottom pieces of bread for each sandwich.

Serve hot right off the grill.

Enjoy.

It’s soooo delish.
