I have mentioned this a few times over the past month or so: I love habanero cheddar cheese. It's over the top good. I was thinking of new ways to incorporate this cheese into some grilling recipes. Today I wanted to try making a grilled cheese sandwich on the grill using habanero cheddar cheese.


  • 8 Ounce block habanero cheddar cheese
  • 8 Ounce block monterey jack cheese
  • 1 stick butter (or a spread)
  • 1 loaf artisan Italian bread


  1. Prepare grilled cheese sandwich.
  2. Light grill to low heat (hold your hand 1 inch over the grate and count to at least 5 comfortably).
  3. Lay sandwich down over direct heat (over the fire).
  4. Look under the sandwich after 30 seconds to check for char.
  5. If charred, flip sandwich immediately, if not, continue cooking for a few more minutes then flip.
  6. Cook until cheese is nicely melted and bread is grilled to your preference.
