Although lobster is typically associated with Maine, the Texas market for this mouthwatering marine crustacean is heating up. And with good reason! On its own, it’s a delicious dish served with melted butter, and it tends to lend itself nicely to a romantic or special-occasion meal. Its appearance is that of something from another world (almost), and the design and flare with which it’s cooked and served is stunning. But chefs and home cooks are finding that lobster can be used in many other unique food offerings, including soup, lobster rolls, pasta dishes, and now lobster grilled cheese.

You read that right. The amazing cheesy goodness that comes from a grilled sandwich such as this is only intensified by the deliciousness of the lobster. Served as a lobster grilled cheese, it results in a heightened flavor of the meat, and a satisfying meal you won’t soon forget. The lobster meat needs to be fresh for this sandwich to reach the taste factor that it’s known for. However, the rich, buttery, sweetness together with the tang of a sharp cheddar (and the amazing taste of the salty, buttered bread) is a contrast you’ll fall in love with.
