Grilled Cheese with Raclette & Lingonberry Jam

Elevate the palates of your young ‘uns with this gourmet grilled cheese recipe from chef Michelle Rodriguez.


  • Good crusty local bread (your preference but I love 9 Bean Rows Sea Salt Fennel)
  • Leelanau Raclette cheese, sliced
  • Lingonberry jam (or use local cherry preserves)
  • Softened butter


Get a skillet or panini press nice and hot. Butter the tops of the crusty local bread, place buttered side down and spread on some jam & top with a few slices of Raclette cheese. Top with the other slice of buttered bread, and grill just until the cheese melts and the bread gets golden brown. Split it with your kid and enjoy the sweet and salty grilled cheese goodness!
