a grilled cheese sandwich with pear, gruyere, and blueberry honey

One of our very favourite lunches is a classic grilled cheese sandwich. Ooey gooey cheese and nicely toasted bread is such a familiar lunchtime staple! But if you’re looking for a new idea to take your grilled cheese to the next level, have you considered adding Good Morning Honey to the mix? 

If you are surprised by the suggestion of adding honey to a grilled cheese sandwich, hear us out! Our honey makes a beautiful addition to any charcuterie board. Our blueberry honey, for example, is a perfect complement to a nice sharp cheese.  So, why not take all the fancy vibes of a charcuterie lunch and combine it with the practical ease of a grilled cheese sandwich? Now we’ve got your attention!

We have found the perfect ingredients for just such a creation: 

  • GMH blueberry honey
  • Gruyere cheese, grated
  • Sliced pears
  • Thyme
  • Crusty bread slices such as sourdough or a baguette (or any bread of your choice)
  • Butter for spreading 


  • Butter the outside of your slices of bread 
  • Layer the rest of the ingredients on the inside of your bread slices, starting with the honey 
  • Grill until toasted and gooey 
  • Enjoy! 

The great thing about this sandwich is that any of our honey varieties will work for it! We suggest the blueberry, but any of the liquid or clover creamed varieties will do. It just depends on what flavour you like best.  Whichever kind you choose, you can feel good knowing you’ve added GMH honey to your lunch as an easy nutritional boost!
