Ultimate Sweet Heat Grilled Cheese

To me, the grilled cheese is the perfect canvas. There’s so many ways you can customize the basic premise and make something your own. This Ultimate Sweet Heat Grilled Cheese is the first of my many grilled cheese creations that I deemed worthy of writing down.

The recipe does truly depend on having that asiago french boule, though sourcing it may be difficult. I’ve linked the mail order site for where I get the bread. I am not affiliated with this company in any way, and receive no kick-backs from this. It’s just really good bread.

Similarly, the Boar’s Head Bold Salsalito® Turkey is a necessary ingredient, and finding a substitute may prove difficult.


You can get roughly 4 - 6 sandwiches per loaf.


Special Equipment

  • Cast iron pan or griddle
  • Metal spatula
  • Wire cooling rack



  1. Preheat cast iron pan or griddle on stove on medium heat
  2. Cover counter in parchment paper

Building the Sandwich

  1. On your parchment paper, butter one side on each of two slices of bread
  2. Sprinkle Slap Ya Momma Cajun Seasoning onto butter to taste
  3. Grind pepper onto butter to taste
  4. Using spatula, flip slices over so that they’re butter-side down
  5. Spread a thin layer of Mike’s Hot Honey over slices making sure to completely cover the slices
  6. Lay two slices of havarti over the honey on each slice (may require splitting the slices to ensure equal coverage)
  7. Repeat this process with the cheddar, laying it over the havarti
  8. On one side, lay slices of Boar’s Head Bold Salsalito® Turkey on top of cheddar
  9. Using the spatula, flip the slice without the turkey onto the the opposite slice


  1. Place a small pat of butter into the pan; allow to melt
  2. Using the spatula, place the sandwich into the pan
  3. Cover, and cook on low until the cheese begins to melt onto the pan, roughly 5 minutes
  4. Flip sandwich, and cook covered another 3 - 5 minutes
  5. Remove cover, and cook another 3 - 5 minutes, or until desired toasty-ness
  6. Flip sandwich and cook until desired toasty-ness
  7. Remove sandwich from pan, and allow to cool on wire rack for 3 - 5 minutes


  • It is important to allow the sandwich to cool on a wire rack, or similar such device. This is because without any air flow, the steam created by the sandwich will cause the bottom side to lose its crust, or even become soggy.
  • The amount of cheese per sandwich was what worked for my size of slices of bread. Use as much or as little as you prefer.
