Smoked Salmon & Gruyere Grilled Cheese Recipe

Posted on


8 slices of bread (I used Rye, but you’re free to play with this)

8 ounces smoked salmon

1 cup gruyere cheese, grated

1 tablespoon lemon zest

2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

4 tablespoons butter, for the pan


  1. Place 4 slices of the bread on a large clean work surface.
  2. Layer 1/8 cup of cheese, 1/4 of the salmon, a pinch of the lemon zest and dill, and then another 1/8 of cheese on each slice of bread (basically dividing everything in 4 among the slices of bread), then top each with another slice of bread.
  3. Melt two tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches, two at a time, and cook until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Repeat for all of the sandwiches, adding more butter to the pan as needed.
  5. Cut in half and serve at once.
