    The Slapfish’s Clobster Grilled Cheese

    “Adding rich lobster to an iconic dish like grilled cheese is a no-brainer. After trying it, the lobster almost tasted too rich (who would have thought) so we cut some of the richness with crab, which also adds a sweet flavor and a new texture.”

    The Players:

    • Lobster

    • Crab

    • Sourdough bread

    • Nutty toasted butter

    • Jersey sauce

    • Mozzarella

    • Cheddar

    • Gruyere
