Blueberry Mozzarella Grilled Cheese
The most amazing twist on the Classic Grilled Cheese is to add some beautiful blueberries. A Blueberry Mozzarella Grilled Cheese is the best sweet and savory grilled cheese in one bite. Serve Blueberry Mozzarella Grilled Cheese at all your parties this summer.
Can you believe half the year is over already? I can’t believe we just celebrated the Fourth of July! But summer is in full swing and I need to feed my hungry children lunch and snacks for the remainder of the summer. One of mykiddos favortie lunches is grilled cheese sandwiches. But, my kids are pretty specific about “the how” of the makings of a grilled cheese sandwich. AND, each of my three children like their grilled cheese sandwiches a different way. LOL!
My youngest daughter loves a Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Plain white bread, one slice of American Cheese and grilled lightly in pan on the stovetop. My son likes a Classic Grilled Cheese as well, but he loves a crunchy sourdough bread and a few slices of various cheeses. He really likes if I happen to have a Pepperjack Cheese on hand. He likes his sandwich baked in the oven though, no soggy bread for him.
My oldest daughter is my most adeventurous and will sample any of my attempts at turning the Classic Grilled Cheese into something super spectacular! This is where the Blueberry Mozzarella Gilled Cheese Sandwich turned into the Summer Favorite Sandwich!
I have the perfect delicious sandwich to serve or bring along to all your summer picnics, parties, gatherings and celebrations! You can't get it wrong on Mozzarella Cheese and Blueberries in all your favorite sandwiches.

But wait, it gets better. It's not just blueberries. There's blackberries and raspberries in the spread too!
And, the mozzarella cheese! Melty, delicious fresh mozzarella cheese for the most perfect cheese pull!
Really though, the best part of this delicious sandwich is how simple they are to make.
I made the Blueberry Spread and added raspberries and blackberries for some extra sweet and extra tart.
