Grilled Cheese with Strawberries
A sweet little dessert sandwich made with pound cake, mascarpone, lemon curd, and strawberries.
Set the pound cake out to defrost if you have a frozen cake.
Pre-heat the grill and place your griddle or pizza stone on the grill top to heat. If using the stovetop, place your skillet the stove to preheat
Cut the pound cake into ½" slices - usually, you get 12 slices
Butter both sides of the pound cake slices.
Rinse and pat dry the strawberries. Slice enough berries to cover the sandwiches.
Mix ⅓ cup of mascarpone with 2 tablespoons of lemon curd
Grilling the Pound Cake
Place the buttered pound cake slices on your griddle or pizza stone on the grill, or in a skillet on your stove.
Once the slices are browned on the bottom flip over and brown the other side.
Remove cooked slices to a plate
Making the Sandwiches
Spread one side of the pound cake slice with the lemon and mascarpone cheese
Spread another pound cake slice with strawberry jam
Lay the sliced strawberries on top of the mascarpone slice then cover with the strawberry jam slice.
These are little sandwiches but it looks nice to cut them on the diagonal for serving.
These sandwiches can be plastic wrapped and stored in the refrigerator for several days.
You do have the option of grilling the sandwiches on the grill, I use a gas grill or you can grill them inside on the stovetop.
These sandwiches keep well for several days, just wrap in plastic and refrigerate.
