Cranberry chia grilled cheese sandwich

I just made this Cranberry chia grilled cheese sandwich for lunch today and OMG. I just had to share this recipe with you guys today. I made three of them and I ate two they were that good.

I haven’t made a grilled cheese sandwich in for ever but today I needed something quick and filling so I just used the homemade cranberry chia seed jam I had leftover and made this cranberry chia grilled cheese sandwich. All I can say is W.O.W. This sandwich was the bomb.

I have a couple of other grilled cheese sandwich recipes in the blog so make sure to also click in the link to check them out. They are the delicious as well.

I had one leftover sandwich that my son ate after coming back home from school in just about a minute. I need to get in the kitchen and make more cranberry chia seed jam for sure because this Cranberry chia grilled cheese sandwiches need to be made more often. I thought it may be a crazy combination but the flavors really worked good together. I was pleasantly surprise to say the least.

I hope you get to choose this combo. If you think it is crazy let me tell you that you are wrong. It was really good. Even my kids enjoyed it as much as I did. A great different version to the take on conventional grilled cheese sandwiches for sure.

P.S: If you don’t like this combo please save your negative comments. I happen to try this combination today and loved it. Not everyone has to but I like to share my creations. The end!

Divide the olive oil over the outside of each slice of bread. Spread the cranberry chia seed jam over the inside of four slices of bread. Place two slices on provolone cheese on four slices of bread. Top with the other slice of bread.

Add the sandwiches to the grill pan and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes on each side. Serve while still warm.

  10. This looks really good. I’m a law school student and this would be perfect for an energy boost, healthy, quick lunch or snack. I try to make several meals on the weekend to take to school for the lunch during the week. How long will this salad last if made ahead of time? Also, I don’t have 15-20 mins to spare to wait for the dressing to wilt the spinach on my lunch break, how soon can I put the dressing on if I plan to eat lunch/snack that day? I’m typically at school from 8-5 M-F and eat lunch about Noon. Lastly, what protein would you recommend to add in this salad (chicken)?
    Thank you!

    • This will keep for one day. You can add the dressing in the morning before you head out, it will be totally fine. I think grilled chicken would be great in this :-) Thanks for stopping by.
