Serve up some seriously savory cheese with this ‘Nduja filled grilled cheese! We’ve sliced up mellow Arzua Ulloa, a pudgy cheese from Galicia, Spain, topped it off with charred scallions, and added a layer of rich, spicy ‘Nduja for a blast of bright flavor with a punch of heat. ‘Nduja, a traditional pork spread, is typically seasoned with lots of chilis for a paste that’s like a convergence of sausage and pate. With a drizzle of hot honey, this sandwich is ready to tickle taste buds in just minutes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons EVOO in cast iron skillet or heavy bottomed pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add washed and dried scallions to the pan and arrange so that each is touching the surface of the pan and none are overlaid on top of one another. Heat for about 4 minutes before flipping to char the other side.
  3. Remove the scallions and wipe out the pan.
  4. Slice the rinds off of the Arzua Ulloa and slice the remaining cheese into chunks. Cut the scallions in half so that the length of each does not exceed that of a slice of bread.
  5. Heat heavy bottomed pan over medium-low heat and add 1 tablespoon butter. Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise onto 2 slices of bread and place them face-down in the pan, side-by-side.
  6. Lay a couple slices of Arzua Ulloa onto each slice of bread, portioning equally.
  7. Layer a couple of the scallions on top of the cheese. Drizzle a teaspoon or so of Mike’s Hot Honey over the scallions.
  8. Take two more slices of bread and squeeze some of the ‘Nduja onto each, spreading it into an even layer. Place the slices ‘Nduja-side down on top of the open-faced sandwiches cooking in pan. Spread another thin layer of mayonnaise on the upward-facing side of the bread.
  9. Cover the pan with a lid and allow the sandwiches to griddle for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese appears to be melting.
  10. Remove the cover and flip the sandwich to brown the other side. Leave for 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Repeat the process for the two remaining sandwiches. Slice diagonally and enjoy!
