Maui-Inspired Lobster Grilled Cheese

Maui-Inspired Lobster Grilled Cheese

One day while lying poolside on our honeymoon, I discovered the Lobster Grilled Cheese at the Andaz Resort Wailea. I truly don’t recall being so obsessed with a sandwich on a vacation, or really in my life, ever.

I proceeded to order this amazing grilled cheese three total times, which doesn’t include my husband’s orders. When you love something and you’re on vacation, you have to indulge, right? I found an easy recipe to recreate this deliciousness at home from Food & Wine. You will notice green flecks from herbs in this lobster – I would use a bit of finely chopped basil to add some depth to the sandwich!

Lobster Grilled Cheese from Food & Wine

Makes 1 sandwich



Heat a heavy-bottomed frying pan to medium. Brush the outside of the bread with mayonnaise. Layer two slices of cheese, lobster meat and the remaining 2 slices of cheese for the sandwich. Season with salt. Slowly grill until the cheese is dripping out of the sandwich and the bread is golden brown.

What is one of your favorite sandwiches you discovered on vacation? Let me know, or let me know if you decide to make this grilled cheese by commenting or emailing me anytime at!
