Blueberry Breakfast Grilled Cheese

A few months ago, I experimented with a Pepperoni Grilled Cheese recipe (no, the recipe isn’t posted yet, but you can find a version of it on this menu).  It was quite possibly the best grilled cheese I’ve ever eaten.  Since then, I have wondered how many variations of the classic grilled cheese I’ve been missing out on.  This Blueberry Breakfast Grilled Cheese makes it feasible to eat grilled cheese at basically every meal.

Blueberry Breakfast Grilled Cheese


Katie @ onceamonthmeals.com


  • 8 slices sandwich bread
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon butter
  • 0.75 cup frozen blueberries, thawed


Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Heat skillet over medium heat.  Butter a slice of bread on one side and place butter side down in skillet.  On the inside of that slice of bread, spread the cream cheese mixture.  Top with blueberries.  Place a second slice of bread on top of the blueberries.  Butter the outside of the slice of bread.  Cook on one side for 5 minutes and then flip.  Cook for another 3 minutes until bread is golden brown.  Remove from heat and repeat with the rest of the bread.

Freezing Directions:

After cooking, allow sandwiches to cool.  Wrap each sandwich individually with plastic wrap and place into a gallon freezer bag.  Label and freeze.  To serve: reheat in microwave for 30 seconds.   

Servings: 4

    My mom says she grew up eating pineapple on her grilled cheese sandwiches in Germany… we mostly eat them with old cheddar and basil, but today I think I might give these a try! very interesting combo I’m sure will be addictive.

    WOW – I cannot make these fast enough. My kids love them! I used 4 loaves for my first batch. Not enough for my clan. They were gone too quick. I am making another 6 loaves worth today.

    I saw this recipe a while back but didn’t have any cream cheese. I finally have some cream cheese and the time to make these these for breakfast this morning using raspberries(I didn’t have any blueberries). I loved them! 2/3 children loved them too. This is definitely a repeat recipe!

    I saw that to eat after freezing to use the Microwave but I’m thinking that the toaster oven would be a better choice. Has anyone tried them from frozen??

  6. [...] If you don’t have a panini maker, you could butter the bread and grill the sandwiches in a skillet and you really could use any fruit that you like.  I’m sure raspberries or blueberries would be equally delicious!  The recipe was inspired by a post on Once a Month Mom. [...]
