Roasted Asparagus Grilled Cheese

Written by Becky

Comfort food meets Spring with this melty and comforting Roasted Asparagus Grilled Cheese. This simple sandwich is easy, tasty, and oh so addicting!  If you’re looking for a soup to dunk these into, try this Tomato Squash Soup by Molly Yeh.

I want to take this post to say how excited I am about this group of bloggers posting seasonally fresh recipes!  Every month we all share at least one seasonal and fresh recipe using one or more of the ingredients from my seasonal produce guide that goes out on the first of every month.  When all of the posts come in, I am inspired EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Looking (and drooling) over all of the recipes every month, I want to make ALL of them!  I usually get the chance to make at least one and they are always well tested and tasted recipes that I know I’ll enjoy. In the past few months I’ve made Liz’s Sweet Potatoes topped with Asparagus and Crispy Chickpeas, Letty’s Vegan Key Lime Pie made with cashew cream (if you haven’t tried a dessert using cashew cream yet, you must!!), Lindsay’s Coconut Quinoa Bowls with Roasted Broccoli, and Shaina’s Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup.  Liz’s Stuffed Sweet Potatoes were enjoyed by the whole family (even little Ruthie!).  Josh and I had late night snacks of Letty’s Vegan Key Lime Pie for a week straight without any dessert guilt.  Lindsay’s Coconut Quinoa is now a staple side dish at our house (I may never be able to make quinoa another way!).  And Shaina’s Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup is a new favorite chicken soup for sick days!

These ladies are the cream of the crop when it comes to healthy, seasonal recipes AND when it comes to dependable, well-written, online recipes.  I can’t say enough about them!! I’m so humbled and inspired to be a part of this group. When I first started the eat seasonal group of bloggers, I had no idea how much encouragement I would get from each of these bloggers.  They challenge and teach me in so many ways.  They up my cooking game, giving me a friendly push to try new recipes, new ingredients, and to be more creative and smart in my cooking.

Asparagus Grilled Cheese

A seasonally fresh take on grilled cheese with asparagus.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Course Main Course
Cuisine American, vegetarian
Servings 2 sandwiches


  • 6 spears of asparagus
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ounces of white cheddar cheese*
  • 2 ounces of gruyere cheese*
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • grass fed butter


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Remove the woody ends of the asparagus and toss the spears with olive oil, then sprinkle with the sea salt and pepper. Spread the asparagus spears out onto the prepared baking sheet and roast for 8-10 minutes or until slightly brown.
  • Meanwhile, slice the cheese and butter the bread. Remove asparagus from oven.
  • Heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Add two slices of the bread, butter side down, to the pan. Add cheese then add 3 spears of asparagus to each sandwich. Top with the other bread slices, butter side up.
  • Toast for 3-4 minutes then flip and toast for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve hot with tomato soup!


If you choose only one cheese for this sandwich go for the gruyere! It's a perfect pair with the asparagus and melts really well. Some grocery stores also sell a cheese that is a combo of white cheddar and gruyere, if you can find that go for it!

I served up these sandwiches with Molly Yeh’s Tomato and Squash Soup.

  1. Aww…so glad you made and tried the sweet potatoes. They are in regular rotation around my house, too! And hooray for this grilled cheese recipe. You’re reminding me that April is Grilled Cheese Month! I definitely need to make these to celebrate!

  2. I’m always inspired by the group’s recipes too Becky, and this grilled cheese is no exception! Asparagus is my top favorite vegetable and incorporating it into a sandwich with melty cheese needs to happen!

  3. I really can’t say enough about the culinary creativity floating around in this group! I’m inspired every single month. It keeps us eating more seasonally and thoughtfully in our house.

    And I just decided I need to make a grocery store run for some gruyere. I apparently don’t have enough of it in my life

  4. I get so inspired too! And hungry! 🙂 I wish we all lived closer and could just have a potluck with everything each month! I love this grilled cheese!! I haven’t had a grilled cheese in way too long and never one stuffed with asparagus. So good!
