Grilled cheese sandwiches are the ultimate comfort food. The creaminess of the melted cheese coupled with the savoriness of the buttered bread sometimes makes it the only thing that hits the spot!

This easy blackberry and peach grilled cheese sandwich recipe is divine. The sweetness of the peaches, tartness of the blackberries, saltiness of the cheeses and mild spiciness of the OKAZU are the absolute perfect combination of flavours!

It's so quick to whip up that it's truly an ideal breakfast or lunch for those extra busy days. It may also win over the hearts (and taste buds) of picky eaters!

Serves 2

Cooking time: 15 minutes 


2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
4 thick slices sourdough/pumpernickel bread (or bread of choice)
100 g goat cheese
1 cup blackberries
1 peach, thinly sliced
80g fontina cheese, shredded (can also use gouda or provolone cheese)
80g grated swiss cheese
8-10 basil leaves

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, spread butter over one side of each bread slice. Place the bread in the skillet(in 2 batches if the skillets too small), buttered side down, then reduce the heat to low.

  2. Spread goat cheese on top of each bread slice in the skillet. Then place the basil leaves and blackberries on top of half the bread slices; gently smash them with a fork, then layer the peaches and grated cheese on top of the blackberries. Drizzle OKAZU Curry flavour over the peaches/cheese, and cook until the buttered sides of all the bread slices are golden brown, 3-4 minutes.

  3. Close the sandwiches and continue cooking, pressing down gently and flipping once, until the cheese is melted, 3 minutes/side.

  4. Slice the grilled cheese sandwiches. Divide between plates and serve with extra OKAZU.

Fumi's Favorite Gyoza (dumpling) Recipe

I make about 200 dumplings at a time and freeze them. It is a bit of a production to make, but it is so worth it. I'm always excited when I get to eat these, it's not like a sad frozen dinner, and they are so convenient. Try these gyoza with steamed rice and some sauteed bean sprouts, and beer!
