Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Bacon, Oyster Mushrooms, and Scallions

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Bacon, Oyster Mushrooms, and Scallions

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces oyster mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 1/2-inch-thick slices country-style boule
  • 5 ounces sharp cheddar or Emmenthal cheese, thinly sliced

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat a cast-iron griddle or large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook bacon, turning once, until crisp and brown. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Pour drippings into a small bowl; return griddle to medium-high heat.

  • Brush mushrooms lightly with bacon drippings. Cook mushrooms, turning once, until tender and brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to a plate. Cook scallions, turning once, until tender and brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to another plate and let cool slightly. Coarsely chop mushrooms and scallions.

  • Brush one side of each bread slice with bacon drippings. Place, brushed side down, on a work surface. Top two slices of bread with cheese, covering bread completely, then 2 bacon slices. Continue layering, starting with a thin layer of cheese, then mushrooms, then another layer of cheese, scallions, and a final layer of cheese. Top cheese with remaining 2 bread slices, brushed side up.

  • Cook sandwiches, placing a heavy pan or pot on top of sandwiches to weigh down, until bread is crisp and golden brown and cheese melts, about 4 minutes per side.

Pizza With Sautéed Leeks, Grilled Mushrooms and Goat Cheese Whipped with Lemon Zest

This summer we have introduced a new tradition in the Amazing Sandwich home – Pizza Cook-off Fridays. What started as dinner with a friend who came over to show us how to make pizza on the grill, has morphed into my new favorite evening of the week. The basic concept is this: get some friends together, Anders and I provide the dough and competitors bring their favorite wines and toppings for 3-4 hours of trash talking, ardent pizza making, even more ardent eating, and just a wonderfully good time. So far, we’ve had some awesome creations: classic margarita with fresh tomatoes from our respective gardens pesto with grilled mushrooms feta with hummus, grilled pork and finished with tahini drizzle smoked salmon with thin lemon slivers apricots with prosciutto and arugula. But my favorite so far was one entry from last weekend: sautéed leeks with garlic, grilled oyster and shimeji mushrooms, buffalo mozzarella and then topped with dollops of a whipped goat cheese/lemon zest blend and sprinkled with fresh thyme. It was divine. I mean really…it was soo good it bears repeating – it was divine! We whipped the goat cheese with a fork, added some lemon zest and bit of olive oil. After baking in the oven, it was so light and creamy and the lemon just gave it the perfect amount of tang. I can’t wait till Friday – we might just make this one again.

I’m a Brooklyn based home cook focused on various cuisines, fresh ingredients and delighting the people at my table. My recipes are easy to follow, flexible, require tools you probably already have and generally take less than an hour to prepare.

Why is this site different from all other sites? Other sites have thousands of recipes. This one has few. Recipes are over rated anyway. They are really guides to teach you the basics. Unlock the great cook you can be. All it takes is a bit of care and planning to make your house everyone’s favorite restaurant.

Candied Jalapeño and Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese

This bacon grilled cheese is filled with sharp cheddar and candied jalapeños! Served alongside a soup dipped for the ultimate comforting meal.

Soup dipper suggestions

  • the best tomato soup
  • cauliflower soup
  • silky sweet potato soup
  • caramelized leek soup
  • pumpkin bisque

Candied jalapeños

  • 4 jalapeño peppers sliced
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Bacon jam

  • 1 pound bacon, (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup bourbon
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter

Grilled cheese

  1. To bring this entire recipe together, I suggest making the candied jalapenos and bacon jam first. You can even do it a day before. Once that’s ready, prepare your soup and while it cooks, make your grilled cheese.
  2. candied jalapeños
  3. To make the candied jalapeños, Add the vinegar, sugar and garlic powder to a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Allow the mixture to boil for 2 to 3 minutes, then add in the peppers and stir with a wooden spoon, making sure all of the slices are submerged. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the peppers with a slotted spoon and place them in a jar or a bowl. Continue to cook the liquid for another 5 minutes until it has reduced by half, then pour it over the jalapeños. Allow the peppers to cool completely – you can do this a day ahead of time too.
  4. bacon jam
  5. Heat a large dutch oven over medium-low heat and add the bacon. Cook until the fat is started to render and a few pieces of the bacon are crispy. Stir in the onion, paprika, salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar and cook for another minute or so.
  6. Stream in 3/4 cup bourbon and 1/2 cup of chicken stock, stirring with a wooden spoon to release any bits of flavor from the bottom of the pot. Simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until the liquid has evaporated and the mixture has thickened. Stir in the remaining bourbon and 1 cup of stock, cooking again for 10 more minutes while stirring, until that liquid has evaporated too. Add the last of the chicken stock.
  7. Transfer the mixture to a blender and very carefully, blend until pureed. (I put a towel over the top and hold it down.)
  8. Return the mixture to the same pot and cook for another 10 minutes until it has cooked down a bit more and thickened. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. Stir in the butter. Let cool completely before scooping into an airtight container and storing in the fridge.
  9. grilled cheese
  10. To make the grilled cheese, heat a griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. To assemble the sandwich, spread one of the inside slices with bacon jam. Top with the grated cheese and a few spoonfuls of the jalapenos. Cook until the bread is toasty and golden brown and the cheese is melted. Serve with a soup dipper!

Carbs with a side of carbs is just how I like it!

Maine Lobster Tails: Boiling Is Best

To get consistently perfect results in cooking lobster tails, the best way is to boil your tails in water. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce heat to a soft boil and add sea salt. Drop the tails in one at a time and set your timer. Review the average cooking times based on the tail quantity and size.

Another recipe for cooking delicious lobster tails involves broiling them. Follow these easy steps:

  • Preheat your broiler.
  • Arrange lobster tails on your pan.
  • Cut lobster shells lengthwise along the top with a sharp knife or kitchen shears.
  • Pull shells slightly apart.
  • Season with paprika, salt, butter and white pepper.
  • Broil about 5-10 minutes until meat is opaque and tails are lightly browned.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.

To make “exploding tails” you’ll need to boil the tail first for about 3 minutes. Then, cut the tail lengthwise through the top of the lobster shell. Brush lemon and butter on the meat and bake in the oven on 425 F for 3-4 minutes.

For specific instructions on cooking lobster tails, check out our resources below!

Lobster Soups and Sandwiches

Sandwiches are a great option for a casual gathering, and soups are an easy and tasty addition to any meal. Maine Lobster Now has lobster bisque and lobster stew as well as lobster roll packs you can order directly from us. That way you can get right to eating when the food arrives at your home.

Creating your own dishes is also fun, though. Try these recipes for your fresh lobster meat:

Bisque is a rich, creamy dish and a little goes a long way in satisfying your hunger. This simple recipe takes about 40 minutes to complete and involves processing the ingredients in a blender and then cooking over low heat. Bisque is a versatile dish that can be a start to your meal, or it can be the entrée when paired with a salad and bread.

Ingredients:

  • ½ pound Maine Lobster Now meat
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons carrot, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can chicken broth (usually 14.5 ounces)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1½ cups half-and-half
  • ½ cup dry white wine

In a large pan, melt butter over low heat. Add all vegetables and cook until soft. Stir in the broth, cayenne and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer.

After simmering 10 minutes, pour the hot liquid and vegetable mix into a blender and add one-fourth cup of lobster meat. Blend until smooth. Pour the blended mixture into the pan. Stir in remaining lobster meat, wine and half-and-half. Once all ingredients are mixed, stir frequently over low heat. It’ll take about 30 minutes for the bisque to thicken.

You can vary bisque in several ways — some bisque recipes call for tomato and tomato paste, among other liquors — but most will have your standard soup base of celery, onions and carrots. Nom nom.

This lobster stew recipe uses four fresh lobsters, heavy cream, butter and milk. Making it a day in advance enhances the flavor. Stew is also a great dish to enjoy all year long, rather than just in the colder months.

Ingredients:

  • 4 live lobsters
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 6-8 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper

Boil lobsters for 18-20 minutes. Set lobsters aside to cool and reserve the juices.

Remove the meat, tomalley and roe from the lobsters. Sauté the roe and tomalley in about two tablespoons of butter in a pot. Do this for a few minutes. Add some of the lobster meat and more butter into the pot. Continue adding butter and meat until everything has been sautéed for about five minutes.

Add cream, the reserved lobster juice, and the milk. Simmer on low heat, uncovered, for up to two hours — don’t let it boil. Depending on your flavor preferences, add pepper and salt to taste. Defer on less of both if you’re serving to guests who would rather season to their liking.

Mixing lobster meat with celery, lemon juice, chives and mayonnaise is the basis for creating the filling for this lobster roll recipe. This sandwich is a crowd-pleaser and is served at many restaurants along the coast of Maine. Maine Lobster Now even supplies local Maine restaurants with lobster rolls to serve at their businesses!

Ingredients:

  • 3 1½-pound live lobsters
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 celery finely chopped celery stalk
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 6 New England-style split-top buns
  • 2 tablespoons room temperature unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt

Fill a large pot with one inch of water, salt water and bring to a boil. Add lobsters. Cover the pot and cook for ten minutes. Put lobsters aside to cool.

Once cooled, crack those lobster shells. You’ll want to pick the meat from the tail and claws, cutting it into half-inch pieces. Mix lobster, lemon juice, celery, chives and about two tablespoons of the mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Season with pepper and salt. If you desire more mayonnaise, add more.

To toast the buns, use a large skillet over medium heat. Spread butter on each bun, place them butter-side down in the pan, and cook until golden — about two minutes. Fill bread with your yummy lobster mixture — and get your chow on.

LOBSTER GRILLED CHEESE SANDWHICH

Havarti cheese blends wonderfully with the flavor or lobster meat to create this twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. Make each sandwich with sourdough bread and about a quarter pound of lobster meat.

Ingredients:

Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Spread mayonnaise on the outside of your bread slices and place mayonnaise-side down in the frying pan.

Layer two slices of cheese, lobster meat and another two slices of Havarti on the bread. Season with salt. Place the other slice of bread on top, and alternate sides, grilling the sandwich until the bread is golden brown on both sides.

Lobsta’ Pasta

There are so many possibilities for dinner when it comes to pasta. You may choose to make the pasta from scratch or use prepared pasta as a complement to your delicious sauces and fillings — and, of course, lobster. Try one of these delightful lobster pasta dishes:

Lobster and butter have always made a great pair, and this recipe calls for brown butter, which takes the flavor up a notch. This ravioli is filled with brown butter, lobster, shrimp and ricotta cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 3 lobster tails
  • 1/4 pound shrimp, uncooked, deveined and peeled
  • 1 pound fresh pasta dough, rolled into lasagna sheets
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly-chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Prepare the pasta dough: Rolling dough into lasagna sheets. Once completed, cover and set aside.

Prepare the pasta filling: Cut through the top of the lobster tail shell lengthwise with a knife or kitchen shears. Pull the meat away from the shells. Use a large pot of water to steam the shrimp and lobster tails for about seven minutes. Once steamed, remove meat and set aside to cool. You’ll finely chop the meat once it’s completely cooled.

Melt butter over medium heat in a small saucepan. After about two minutes of stirring, brown bits will appear on the pan bottom. Immediately remove from heat and whisk briskly for another 30 seconds.

Add the garlic, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper — plus the crushed pepper flakes if you prefer them. Stir in the lobster and shrimp. Mix in the ricotta cheese. Breathe in the yumminess. Set the filling aside.

Prepare the ravioli: Heavily flour your ravioli mold or counter, and lay one sheet of pasta on top of the heavily floured surface. Place about a tablespoon of filling into each ravioli well. Use water to spritz the pasta so the layers stick. Put second pasta sheet on the first, then seal with a rolling pin. Use a pizza cutter to cut ravioli squares apart. Lay each ravioli on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Keep making ravioli until all your lobster filling is gone.

Prepare for deliciousness: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the ravioli in the boiling water until it floats — should take about two minutes. Remove from water with a slotted spoon, and enjoy with your favorite pasta sauce. Add fresh parsley and grated parmesan cheese to taste.

LOBSTER MACARONI AND CHEESE

Macaroni and cheese has a long-lived reputation of being a comfort food. An easy way to upgrade this popular dish to add lobster.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of Maine Lobster Now meat
  • 1 pound boxed macaroni pasta
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, or as needed
  • 1 cup vegetable or fish stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons grape seed oil
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 2 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
  • White pepper
  • Salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons white truffle oil

Boil water for the pasta. Pasta should be cooked after 8-10 minutes. Drain well — any excess water can dilute the flavor in the final dish.

While the pasta is cooking, add oil to a separate pan and cook lobster meat — you’ll know it’s done when it’s no longer translucent. Set aside.

In another large saucepan, melt butter and add garlic and onion. Be careful not to burn it. Once translucent, add flour gradually. Some flour absorbs more than others, so you may not need much. Mix in the bay leaves.

To form a smooth sauce, add the stock a little at a time. Allow 10 minutes to simmer, then take out the bay leaves. Now it’s time for the cheddar and heavy cream, as well as white pepper and salt. Add the lobster meat to your delicious cheese mixture, then stir in your pasta. Add as much pasta as you need to give it the right balance of pasta to cheesy goodness.

Pick your favorite serving bowl, drizzle the truffle oil on top and garnish with chives. Looks good enough to eat!

Creating an elegant meal in about 20 minutes that will both impress and delight your dinner guests is a winning formula. This recipe for linguine with chives and tomatoes makes the lobster shine.

Ingredients:

  • 2 live 1-pound lobsters
  • 3 chopped tomatoes
  • Linguine
  • 1/2 small, finely-diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt to taste

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Put the lobsters headfirst into the pot and cook, uncovered, for five minutes. Take the lobsters out to cool, but save the water.

Pull the meat from the tail, and cut into small pieces. Remove the lobster meat from the claws and set aside. Combine other ingredients in a saucepan — garlic, tomatoes, olive oil, onion and one-half cup of the lobster cooking water. Season with salt and bring the mix to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about five minutes. Remove from the heat.

Add salt to the cooking water from the lobsters. You’ll reuse this to cook the linguine and pick up the flavor. When the pasta is almost done, add the tomato paste. The pasta should absorb most of the liquid, but don’t cook it too long or the pasta won’t be al dente. Remove from heat and mix in the lobster meat. Sprinkle with chives.

If you weren’t hungry before, you should be now!

This recipe is a classic combination of lobster and seasoned stuffing. Is your mouth watering yet?

Ingredients:

Stuffing Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces chopped haddock
  • 2 scallops, quartered
  • 1 ounce lobster meat
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup crackers, crumbled
  • Lemon juice, for seasoning
  • White wine, for seasoning
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prep the lobster: Preheat the oven to 450 F. Bring a little water to boil in a large pot. Cut open the lobster by splitting the belly from head to tail with your knife. Remove the guts and heart, but not the meat. Steam the lobsters in the pot for 7-10 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Make the stuffing: Melt butter a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add all the seafood and saute until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Mix in the crackers, and add lemon juice, wine, and salt and pepper, to taste.

Stuff the lobster: Stuff the lobster’s opening with stuffing. Place the now stuffed lobster belly-side-up in a roasting pan. Add some water to the bottom of the pan to keep the lobster moist while cooking. Squirt the stuffed lobster bodies with the lemon juice and bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or just until the claws begin to split. Do not allow the lobster to dry out.
