Habanero Cheddar Grilled Cheese

We bet you’ll love this Habanero Cheddar Grilled Cheese cooked on your Big Green Egg.


3 medium jalapeño peppers
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Cabot Salted Butter, softened
4 slices multi-grain bread
4 ounces Cabot Hot Habanero Cheddar*, grated (about 1 cup)
2 ounces Cabot Regular Cream Cheese
4 ounces Wholly Guacamole


Set Big Green Egg for direct cooking at 350°F/177°C.

Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs. In small bowl, toss peppers with oil until well coated. Place skin-side down on cooking grid or Perforated Cooking Grid for about 5 minutes or until skin is browned and blistered. Transfer to small plastic bag to let skin loosen. When cool enough to handle, remove skin and chop peppers.

Butter outside of each bread slice. Mix cheddar with cream cheese; spread mixture on unbuttered side of two of bread slices. Top each with half of guacamole and jalapeños. Add remaining bread slices, butter side out.

Transfer to Half Moon Cast Iron Griddle and cook until golden brown on underside, then turn and cook until second side is golden and cheese is melted.

*Substitute Cabot Chipotle Cheddar for less heat.

Makes two servings.
