Grilled Cheese and Chutney Sandwiches

Grilled Cheese Mango Chutney Sandwich 2 edited

I didn’t know what to eat for lunch today.  I wanted something quick and there weren’t any leftovers of anything.  I made my Easy Homemade Mexican Chorizo yesterday.  While it is phenomenal tasting, it’s obviously not a stand-alone meal.

I opened the fridge and saw a homely loaf of bread (yeah, the artisan stuff was gone).  I remember my husband Todd had made a grilled cheese sandwich last night as an evening snack.  Didn’t sound that great to me at the moment.  But then I saw it.  My pot of homemade Indian Mango Chutney.  Bingo!  A grilled Cheddar cheese sandwich slathered with mango chutney…now that sounded good!

And ohhhhh it was.

This combination transformed that homely bread into a work of art!

Grilled Cheese & Chutney Sandwich.  Here is yet another way to put this delicious homemade mango chutney to use.  (See also Mango Chutney Chicken)

A quick and easy lunch or snack.

Simply get out that homemade Indian Mango Chutney… (Or some store-bought mango chutney if you must.)

Spread it on one side of the bread and layer some Cheddar cheese on the other and close the sandwich.

Cut your hot, crispy and oozing sandwich in half and enjoy!

    These look delicious! Currently the only food it seems my children will eat is grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ll have to give these specific ones a try.

    We tried some meat with our cheese:

      Thank for the compliment, Nick! Since posting my recipe for homemade mango chutney, I’ve been trying to come up with additional ideas for how to use it. This was one of them and more will come. Thanks for visiting!

    I made this last Friday (with my fancy home-made Daring Gourmet mango chutney) when I made regular grilled cheese for my kids. It was a fun grown-up change to our regular sandwiches.

      Fantastic, Susan! Did your kids approve or were they squeamish about it?
