Last night my Husband and I had a date night in! We threw a couple of ribeyes on the cast iron, boiled up some lobster, and had a quiet relaxing evening. The ribeyes were so tender that we could cut them with a butter knife, but I’ll blog about those later!
Since there was way more food than two people
could reasonably eat, we had some leftover lobster today. Cue: Lobster Grilled Cheese! This quick and easy meal is a common camping treat for us. The gooey cheesy salty treat is perfect after a long day of hiking or setting up camp.
It’s something I always make sure to include in the rotation when my Brother is camping with us. He loves shellfish almost as much as I do, and it’s become a little tradition to have shellfish at least once every time we see each other.
As with any other version of grilled cheese, Lobster Grilled Cheese only takes about 5-10 minutes. After shelling your lobster and making a quick tarragon butter, you’re ready to go!
Recipe for Lazy Lobster Grilled Cheese:
- 1/2 Lbs Lobster (Shelled and Deveined)
- 2 Tablespoons of Softened Butter
- 1.5 Teaspoons of Fresh Chopped Tarragon
- Marbled Cheese (Or a cheese of your preference)
- French Bread (Sliced)
- 1 Tablespoon of Mayonaise
- Freshly Cracked Peppercorn
Instructions for Lazy Lobster Grilled Cheese
1: Mix softened butter with 1 teaspoon of freshly chopped tarragon. Tip: If you have hard butter, fill a glass with hot water. Allow it to sit for 1 minute, then pour out the water. Place the cup upside down over the butter and let sit for 5 minutes.
2: Preheat a pan over medium-low heat. Spread mayo on one side of your bread, and tarragon butter on the other. Place butter side down in your frying pan. Add cheese slices on top of the bread.
3: Place Diced Lobster on top of your cheese layer.
4: Then top with a second layer of cheese and 1/2 teaspoon of fresh chopped tarragon. Since this grilled cheese is thick, cooking it on medium-low heat is important. You want the cheese to melt, but you don’t want to burn your bread. Place a lid over the pan and watch carefully.
5: When your cheese starts melting, apply mayo and butter to your second slice of bread, place on top, then carefully flip. Place the lid back on and allow the second side to toast.
