For the Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

  • 4 slices of bread (sourdough, white or wheat)
  • 3 ounces (3 individually wrapped snack sticks) string cheese, peeled in strips
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 3 ounces sliced Gouda cheese
  • 4 teaspoons orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter

For the Melted Butter Topping:

  • 1 tablespoon butter melted


For the Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

  • Heat the BBQ grill on medium heat.  
  • Spread softened butter on both sides of each piece of bread.
  • To the preheated grill, add the buttered slices of bread.
  • Cook until there are light grill marks on one side (about 4 minutes) then turn the pieces of bread over. 
  • To each of the sides of the bread with the grill marks, add string cheese, blue cheese, orange zest, and sliced Gouda cheese.
  • Then close the lid on the BBQ until the cheese is melted and there are grill marks on the bread that is grill-side down (about 5 minutes).

For Serving:

  • 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 onto another piece of bread with melted cheese to make a sandwich.  Repeat for the remaining 2 slices of bread with melted cheese.
  • Then brush melted butter on to the top and bottom pieces of bread for each sandwich.
  • Serve right away while warm.
