Roast Beef and Blue Cheese Grilled Cheese

Warm savory roast beef and salty pungent blue cheese give this grilled cheese its name; the purple-black, sweet and acidic Balsamic Onion Marmalade ties everything together. This is a grown-up grilled cheese and these are strong flavors, but so good together. If you don’t want to take the time to make the marmalade, you can substitute store-bought onion jam, but don’t skip it altogether- it takes this sandwich over the top.

Roast Beef and Blue Cheese Grilled Cheese

Main ingredient


Cook time

20 minutes

Serving size

1 serving


  • 1 ½ tsp salted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 slices white country bread
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Onion Marmalade
  • 2 slices Muenster cheese
  • 3 oz [85 g] thinly sliced roast beef
  • 1 ½ Tbsp crumbled blue cheese

Recipe Preparation

  1. Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.
  2. Spread the butter on one side of each bread slice, dividing it evenly. Place one slice, buttered-side down, on a clean cutting board. Spread with the onion marmalade. Layer one slice of the Muenster, the roast beef, blue cheese, and the second slice of Muenster on top. Finish with the second slice of bread, buttered-side up.
  3. Using a wide spatula, place the sandwich in the pan, cover, and cook until the bottom is nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the second side is browned and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes longer.
  4. Cut the sandwich in half, if desired, and serve immediately.

Instruction Notes

The sharpness of blue cheeses can vary considerably; some are creamy and mild, some so sharp you can smell them across the room the minute they’re unwrapped. You may want to adjust the amount you add to this sandwich depending on the strength of the cheese you select as well as your own tastes.
