I bought a big jar of strawberry jam on sale, then looked for recipes. Made two of these for a bedtime snack last night (one for me & one for DH). Actually, it was really good. Faster than grill cheese sandwiches and just sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. I too left out the butter. My DH has suggested to use apple butter next time to see if it tastes like apple pie with cheese.
This was great! I had to use all low sugar, low fat ingredients but it sure didn't take away the taste. Thank you!
Just made this, it was very good. I tried it out of sheer curiosity. Didn't have any strawberry jam, I used raspberry. And used shredded cheddar cheese from a bag. Will definitely be eating this again. Great for a quick and easy snack. Thanks for the recipe.
Mde this for hubby and my suppers tonight. It was surprisingly good. I toasted the bread first and used strong cheddar cheese. I also left out the butter as I felt that together with the jam, it might make the bread soggy. My husband watched me making it and said, "You Canadians eat some strange things" (He thinks peanut butter and jam sandwiches are gross) However even he had to conclude at the end that they were delicious. Thanks!
These were a go-to when I was younger. The only thing I do differently is to pop them in the toaster to crisp them up a bit then I throw them in the broiler. Otherwise the bottom of the bread is soggy while to the top is toasty.
When I first saw this recipe I thought "jam, and cheese?", much the same way Peter Kay said "garlic, and bread?" (not sure if youre familiar with Peter Kays stand up stuff, he was talking about the conservative British! really very funny :o)) Anyway, I was brave n tried it and really enjoyed it, thank you! :o)
I love a simple recipe, and this one delivers that familiar-yet-new delight. The kids also loved it. I only had mild cheddar on hand but agree that sharp would really be great. Thanks for jazzing up our lunch!
WOW, that was great. I made this about 20 minutes ago. Really great combination, I admit I was a litle worried as to how it would turn out, But I LOVED it. Thanks for the recipe Velvetinenut Miss Pixie x x x
I too was skeptical about this, but it was great! I used raspberry jelly and omitted the butter. It was really good and very easy. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
I absolutely love jelly and cheese on toast -- I've never tried melting the cheese, though! I will hopefully try this soon and then let you know what I think...
