White Cheddar & Blueberry Sandwich

I’m fairly certain that my dogs can somehow read this blog.

After my post yesterday, a beagle-who-shall-remain-nameless (coughcoughWALLY) ate a hole in my favorite sweatshirt. The pocket contained finite traces of treat crumbs from our little photo shoot yesterday. I made the fatal mistake of leaving it laying around, and he immediately seized on the opportunity to pay me back for the post (although, Wally, if you’re readying this – you really didn’t come off too bad …. Sawyer on the other hand….). Rest in peace, ye old sweatshirt from college – you served me well and I will miss your cozy fleece interior dearly.

But I digress. I wanted to share with you the incredibly complex and creative recipe I came up with for lunch today. Except it’s not complex (there are only 2 ingredients…. 3 if you count the bread), I’m sure I’m far from being the first person to think of this, and it’s a sandwich, people – hard to call it a recipe. But if Paula Deen can call opening a can of peas a recipe, then I can call this sandwich one. Plus, I figure some of you out there may be like me and find yourselves staring off into the vast caverns of the fridge, searching for something simple but satisfying. Here’s another sandwich combo to add to your mental recipe collection.

I present for your consideration:



  •  sharp white cheddar (I used Tillamook….which is phenomenal)
  • blueberry preserves (the kind that doesn’t have a million ingredients)
  • bread



  1. Place cheese on one slice of bread. I’ll leave it to you to decide how much but really…. can there ever be too much cheese? Smear a generous helping of preserves on your other slice of bread.
  2. Melt cheese. Toast it, heat it in a pan, microwave it – whatever your preferred method, go for it.
  3. Slap your sandwich together and inhale.

For being so ridiculously simple, it tastes so good.


Melty cheese gets me every time. I am powerless in its presence – I turn into Homer Simpson, watering at the mouth (oddly enough, that also happens around melty chocolate … and ice cream … and Indian food).


So, tuck this little combination away in your mind for the next time you’re hungry and too busy (or lazy) to actually cook anything.

Now I just hope my dogs aren’t reading this and sneak into the kitchen to search for crumbs.


  1. Sounds like a fabulous combination. Looking forward to giving it a try!

  2. This looks delectable! I love simple and delicious recipes 🙂 …Also, I had a beagle when I was younger and feel your pain. I still miss a certain pair of ear muffs that were chewed to shreds! haha
