Grilled Blue Cheese with Honey and Walnut Pesto

Ingredients for 1 serving

Walnut Pesto:

1/2 cup toasted walnuts

1/4 cup olive oil

1 clove garlic

Lemon juice, to taste

Crushed red pepper, to taste

Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste


Grilled cheese:

8 mini slices bread or 4 slices sandwich bread

2 ounces Castello Double Crème Blue cheese

2 ounces Castello Traditional Danish Blue Cheese


Grilled Blue Cheese with Honey and Walnut Pesto


To make the pesto, blend all ingredients in a food processor and season to taste. Be careful not to add too much salt since the blue cheese is salty. 

To make the grilled cheeses, toast one side of each slice of bread, flip and top one half of the sandwich with a layer of walnut pesto, both types of blue cheese and a drizzle of honey. Top with remaining slices of bread and grill until the cheese is melty.

Serve with a pickle and Napa Cellars Zinfandel and enjoy!
