Take those grapes ‘n slice ’em real thin. Do the same with the chicken breast. You can pound it thin too.

Heaven found.

As I write this blog post I am sidetracked by photos & music by Luke Bryan. A good thing indeed.

Grilled cheese & hot country singers are a quite lovely combo. Yup.

I love that you sliced the grapes! And I love an ooey, gooey grilled cheese!

And such pretty pics. The grapes with the colors in the plate; their reflection and the cheese’s reflection and light bouncing. And the old chippy board. Seriously so much goodness going on, Marla!


21 Stephanie April 15, 2013 at 2:58 pm

Love this combo idea! I have tried apples on my grilled cheese and it was incredible, but never grapes. I need to give this mix a try!

27 sally @ sallys baking addiction April 15, 2013 at 5:48 pm

Marla, I am CRAVING grilled cheese right now, more than ever! I love grapes + cheese and while I’ve had other fruit in my grilled cheese before, I’ve never used grapes. Must try!


28 kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts April 16, 2013 at 3:08 am

What a delicious-looking combination.
I know what you mean about a ‘cheese platter under the broiler’–ever since I did a grape, goat cheese and thyme focaccia I started a minor obsession to make a ‘cheese plate pizza’. It’s still in the rattling around my brain stage (garlic oil or fig jam for the sauce? and what kind of crust?) but when I figure it out I’ll know.
Meantime, to get that sweet-savoury cheese plate action, your sandwich looks divine.


29 ashley - baker by nature April 16, 2013 at 6:58 am

Look at all that cheese!!! And grapes! And chicken!

I’m obsessed with this!


30 Heather April 16, 2013 at 12:50 pm
