People… I am dead serious when I tell you this is the best grilled cheese recipe in the world! And I have had my fair share of (Even taught some) amazing, eye rolling, unforgettable grilled cheese sandwiches. Not only is the best one ever… its also crazy easy! I got all but two of the ingredients at my local Trader Joes. No… they do not pay me a cent (I wish they would!) to mention their products… I just love them… so I am passing on the love to you because I am nice like that! But seriously… you must go and get these ingredients and make this grilled cheese recipe tonight… no joke… because it’s mind blowing good!

Pineapple and Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Bread- preferably a bread that has a touch of sweetness to it such as my sandwich bread (recipe on my website) or Kings Hawaiian bread.

Muenster cheese slices (Trader Joes)

Pineapple chunks in heavy syrup (Do not use the pineapple in it’s own juice or fresh pineapple), each chunk cut in half , then cut into thirds (Perfect size) – I had to get this at my local grocery store

Trader Joes Korean Inspired Pork Shoulder – fully cooked (heated according to the package), shredded

Unsalted butter

Heat up your pan or preferably Panini maker. Butter one side of each slice of bread. On the unbuttered side of each slice, place a slice of muenster cheese. Top one of them with some shredded pork shoulder, then a layer of pineapple. Put the two slices together (the pineapple and pork should be sandwiched in between two slices of cheese). Place in the Panini maker and close the lid. If using a pan, place the sandwich in the pan over medium low heat. Flip once one side is toasted and golden. Toast the other side until the cheese melts. Cut in half, plate and eat while warm and melty! The combination of flavors are so good it’s unreal!
