Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 2 slices sourdough bread (or bread of choice)
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 slices gouda cheese
  • 1 oz. gruyere cheese, thinly sliced/cubed (see photos)
  • ½ cup cooked Maine Lobster meat, roughly chopped
  • ⅛ tsp old bay seasoning, or more to taste

Directions

Butter one side of both slices of bread, then place them butter-side down into a large, nonstick skillet. Distribute the cheese evenly on top of both slices, then turn the heat to low, place a lid on the skillet, and cook for 5 minutes.

While the cheese is melted, place the lobster meat in a bowl, and then sprinkle the old bay seasoning on top. Stir to combine.

Remove the lid from the skillet and place the seasoned lobster meat on top of one piece of bread. Place the other slice on top, forming a sandwich, and use a spatula to press it down.

Turn the heat up to medium and cook for 2 minutes, then flip the sandwich over and cook for 1-2 more minutes until the bread is golden brown.

Slice and enjoy!
