Grilled Jarlsberg with Shaved Asparagus and Arugula Pesto + Grilled Cheese Kit Giveaway!

Post image for Grilled Jarlsberg with Shaved Asparagus and Arugula Pesto + Grilled Cheese Kit Giveaway!

My sisters and I would always urge our mom to start at the deli when we accompanied her to the supermarket growing up. Actually, we referred to it “The delicatessen!”,  another one of those words (like “pocketbook”, “dungarees” and “tunafish”) that my family brought over to California from New York. Whatever you want to call it, we loved the counter for one reason: the samples. My mom would buy the cold cuts for the week (we knew this as “lunch meat”) and inevitably the clerk would run a few extra slices for us to snack on. This would buy my mom a few minutes of calm while she attempted to shop with three kids in tow.

It was during one of these childhood delicatessen sampling sessions that I first tried Jarlsberg cheese. It had holes and a cool name that started with a “j” even though it sounded like it should start with a “y”. It wasn’t bright yellow, square shaped and individually-wrapped and no one in my Girl Scout troop had ever heard of it. This was some fancy cheese. And I declared it as my favorite.

As we get ready to wrap up National Grilled Cheese Month, I wanted to share my recipe for Grilled Jarlsberg with Shaved Asparagus and Lemony Arugula Pesto as well as a Grilled Cheese Kit Giveaway (including a skillet, cheese, grater and cookbook!), courtesy of Jarlsberg USA. Read on for both! [THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED]


Grilled Jarlsberg with Shaved Asparagus and Lemony Arugula Pesto
Jarlsberg is one of those Alpine-style cheeses that Gina Freize from Venissimo Cheese told me were the best melters out there. It gets nice and stretchy when it melts and the mild, nutty flavor pairs well with so many other foods. I thought I’d give my Jarlsberg grilled cheese sandwich some springtime flair with wispy blades of shaved asparagus and a homemade arugula pesto, with just enough lemony acidity to cut the richness of the cheese. My favorite cheese from childhood parlayed into my grown-up palate – I loved it!

Good ol’ sharp yellow cheddar was always a standard in our house. We used it in everything. Favorites were grilled cheese on sourdough and quesadillas. Yum!

I’m giggling, because Jarlsberg was the first “exotic” cheese we discovered, too. I think I was in college at the time, and it made me feel very grown-up to make my grilled cheese sandwiches with it!

when I was little we never had anything other than american cheese in the house. I would occasionally eat a slice of sharp cheddar with my grandfather, but it wasn’t my favorite. now you can’t get me near most american cheeses and & refuse to use velveeta for anything. lol we mostly stick to firmer, stronger cheeses.

I just opened a wedge of Jarlsburg this week! I’ve been using it to make tuna melt sandwiches (we always call it tunafish, too) for dinner, but I believe I’ll have to lay hands on some asparagus and try your grilled cheese.

I have to say my favorite cheese growing up was the melted cheddar on top of burritos or seven layer casserole. Simple tastes.

My favorite cheese from childhood was mozzarella as in pizza pie. We didn’t have very refined tastes back then. Now I keep trying new cheeses and like most of them. My latest has been goat cheese. I schlepped to A&P last night to get a small package, since it was on sale. I will definitely try Jarlsberg.

What a great give away! I entered the contest in all ways possible haha

I was a very picky eater, I drove my mother crazy. There was a time the only thing she could get me to eat were grilled cheese sandwiches and mac n’ cheese. However, for some reason I loved (and still do) all kinds of cheese-ironically some strange ones. Anyhow, my favorite grilled cheese I remember my mother creating for me was a sweet & savory grilled cheese:

Brie Cheese between perfectly toasted slices of Pound Cake with Raspberries. Ooey gooey brie with the sweet bread and a kick with a raspberry-the perfect bite.

Might sound crazy but its the perfect combo.

As I child I really didn’t have any exposure to good cheese. But living overseas as an adult really made me aware of what I’d been missing. I now love a creamy brie but my favorite is what my Dutch friend would bring to me from home and she simply called it Old Dutch Cheese. Pretty sure she meant “aged”.

This panini is just gorgeous! I could eat it now (it’s 1 am here, and I had a big dinner). Maybe if I want to spoil myself I should try this recipe for brunch tomorrow…

We used to LOVE single slices of American cheese that my Gramma bought. Apparently it was too expensive for my mother’s grocery cart so it was a real treat when we visited our grandmother!

Omg those tostabags are such a clever idea!! I want! My favorite cheese from childhood is Camembert. My grandparents always had some after meals and I loved it.

I think my favorite “cheese” growing up was Velveeta. Won’t touch the stuff now. But my mom didn’t buy us a lot of variety. I remember processed cheeses, cheddar and mozzarella only.

I loved a three cheese olga growing up, which is Swiss, cheddar and Monterey jack all wrapped with a delicious flatbread.

Looks like I found this just in time! Going to explore this blog more. I was kind of obsessed with Laughing Cow cheese wedges when I was a kid.

when i was a kid i didn’t like cheese unless it was melted, thankfully now i’ve grown into eating anything that remotely seems like cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

One of my favorite cheeses growing up was smoked gouda. I always thought it was neat that the cheese came in the wax wrapper. My mom used to make grilled cheese sandwiches with gouda. I still add gouda to my Loaded Cheese (5 cheese) panini and everyone seems to love it in the sandwich. I love Grilled Cheese!
