Cinnamon Bun Grilled Cheese


  • 2 slices cinnamon raisin bread (Trader Joe's cinnamon roll bread is particularly good)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces extra-sharp cheddar, grated
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper jelly


1 _ Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-low. Spread butter evenly on both sides of the bread slices.

2 _ Place bread on skillet and toast until golden, about 2 minutes. Flip and toast the other sides. Spread cheese on one slice and jelly on the other. When cheese melts, turn off heat and place one slice on top of the other, fillings facing in.

3 _ Slice diagonally and chow down.
