During a grilled cheese date night battle, my husband wanted a grilled cheese with pulled pork, so I made it, but I added something special... cherry bourbon jam.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

My oh my, this is a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich. The smoked gouda cheese pairs nicely with the tangy pulled pork and sweet cherry bourbon jam. The cherry jam is divine. Sweet and smokey, I could have eaten it all with a spoon. Everyone will love this grown up grilled cheese! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
