Cheesecake Heaven – Cheesecake Grilled Cheese with Nutella and Strawberry Butter

Hooray! I have a new guest blogger this week.  My best bud from Bittersweet Sugar & Sarcasm has been kind enough to create an amazing dessert grilled cheese for all of you to enjoy! Here’s his recipe and even though it was hard on him – step by step pictures, as well.  Make sure to head over to his site to develop diabetes check out all the amazing and fun desserts he cranks out every week!

I’m so excited to be doing a guest post with my best bud Mac. If only all of you knew her in person, you would now how much energy and happiness she spreads around effortlessly. But I have one beef with her and this blog:
Ok the step by step thing looks great to read but it is a pain in the @$$ to Q##@%$ photograph and post every @#$% time. That was looney tunes curse words if you picked up on it. 
No that is not really my style, I’m more of a reader. Or video that is quite nice too. But the step by step is tedious. Thankfully over now. I lost my track. . . 
Yes grilled cheese. I love sugar so I thought Mac and I would make a marriage of our blogs so to speak and make a dessert grilled cheese! Mine might be a little tacky (strawberry butter and Nutella add class) but I assure you, it is insanely delicious. You should probably only consume one per lifetime as a warning. Or share it with friends. Or run a marathon. Because the fate won’t treat you kindly after this
That’s not selling it is it? 
Cheesecake sandwich! 
That’s all you need to know

First things first you need the strawberry butter:

Strawberry butter:
What you need:
 2 sticks of super soft butter
1/2 cup strawberry jam

What you do:

In an electric mixer, or by hand if you are so savvy, simply mix together the softened butter and jam. Hopefully it will be pink and pretty. Either way it will taste good. Yes this description required 3 pictures.

Cheesecake Grilled Cheese

What you need:
– 2 slices of brioche
– slather of Nutella
– slather of strawberry butter
– 1 piece of cheesecake
– 2 dabs of butter
What you do:
Preheat a skillet to high heat. On one slice of bread, spread the Nutella. On the other, spread the strawberry butter you slaved away at.
Next, plop the cheesecake and squish it between the Nutella and strawberry butter. 
Then on the outside of your sandwich, butter both slides then drop it on the skillet for about 5 minutes. Press it down a little bit with a spatula. After five minutes, flip it over and let it cook on the other side for about three minutes.

Serve immediately and spread some more strawberry butter on it like it is tomato soup.

WOW. WOW. WOW. That looks insane and now I’m ravenous.  I need someone to eat this with because if I do it alone I will indefinitely feel guilty.  But for now, I want to thank Rick for sharing this super sweet grilled cheese with us and give him a virtual high-five for taking these lovely pics.  You da man!  Thanks boy!

  1. Rick you did a great job!!! All my favorites on one plate.. Better have a gallon of milk to go with it!!! Cannot wait to check out your blog!!!

  2. That's insane, and insanely creative. Also also, like Christine said- “you had me at nutella”.

    Also, speaking of strawberry butter, have you ever tried making garlic and herb butter? I use it for roasts as well but it's amazing on sandwiches. Made a steak sandwich with it last weekend and it was nom-worthy.

  3. This looks so incredible. Must must must try (and then run for like…. 3 days? In order to exercise it off) Definitely gonna be trying out one of your grilled cheese sammiches for one of my blogs breakfast posts! they all look too tasty for words.

  4. I found you via the Fossil blog and I'm so glad I did. This is my first time to your blog and I'm loving this post… Loving the strawberry butter alot, it could be used with so many things. You should contemplate having a show on Food Network, and I don't say that lightly.
