Lobster Grilled Cheese

My goal when eating is to not require a recovery after each meal. For me, that means my usual diet doesn’t include dairy or bread, but the occasional indulgence is a must! This is why, on Valentine’s day, I decided to splurge and make this lobster grilled cheese. It was AMAZING. My fiancé took one bite and said, “I knew you loved me.” That is when I knew I had to share it with you. Whether your occasion is a birthday, anniversary, or just making it through the day (because sometimes it be like that). Here is the perfect recipe for celebrating and making dinner extra special!

Recipe

Ingredients and Equipment

  • Lobster tails (the amount varies on size of both the lobster and portion of grilled cheese)
  • Sour dough bread or a baguette
  • Gruyere cheese
  • Gouda Cheese
  • Salted butter
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Minced Garlic
  • Salt

Making the Grilled Cheese

Step 1: Boil the Lobster

  • Add water to a medium/ large pot. The amount of water and size of the pot will depend on the size and amount of your lobster tails. You want to make sure that the water completely covers the lobster.
  • Salt the water and bring it to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add your lobster tail(s)
  • You will know that the lobster tail is done when the internal temperature is between 135-140 degrees Fahrenheit (57-60 degrees Celsius). The lobster will turn red as a hint!
  • Take the lobster out and let it cool!

Step 2: Assemble the Sandwich

  • Remove the lobster meat by cutting down the middle of the lobster tail with kitchen sheers. Roughly chop the lobster meat do your desired size. I like mine to be thiccc!
  • Place the lobster meat, gruyere cheese, and gouda cheese between two slices of bread. I used Trader Joe’s baguette, but you can also use any sour dough bread you please.

Step 3: Grill the grilled cheese!

  • Option 1
    • in a small bowl or ramekin, soften a couple table spoons of butter (the amount of butter does not need to be exact).
    • Next combine the softened butter with thyme, oregano, and minced garlic.
    • Then, spread the now garlic butter on each side of your sandwich.
    • Finally, Place the sandwich in a skillet on low-medium heat and cook until the bread has browned and cheese is melty goodness!
  • Option 2
    • Melt a couple of table spoons of butter in a medium saucepan on low heat.
    • Add thyme, oregano, and minced garlic to the skillet. Wait to add the minced garlic until the last possible second. Garlic will burn easily!
    • Finally, Place the sandwich in a skillet on low-medium heat and cook until the bread has browned and cheese is melty goodness!

Thank you!

There you go! A decadent, yet approachable, fancy pants celebration meal! I absolutely loved making and eating this dish. It helped to make my Valentine’s day special and I hope it can bring something special to your next celebration, even if that celebration is simply being alive because you are a gift and worth celebrating!

Journaling: What are the Benefits? What to Journal About? and How We Can Make it a Habit?

What do you do when you feel as if you cannot hold your emotions within you? When you are a cup, ill equipped to hold the volume of your feelings, and at any moment, it can all come spilling out creating a mess that would be more than a little inconvenient to clean? For me, the answer is I write it down. Since I was a child, I have loved to write, and very early on I realized that when I put my ideas into words, even if I was unclear when I started, by the time I finished, I would have more clarity than when I began. As an adult, I can add personal color to the widely accepted and research backed consensus that journaling can be life changing. When I post on my instagram story about my journal, I’ve had several people ask me how I journal and what I journal about. I am here to offer research, ideas, and resources for those who wish to know more and begin to journal.
