This is one mean grilled cheese! Buttery mushrooms and sweet cranberry sauce compliment the oodles of swiss cheese in this perfectly sinful sandwich!

It was the year I wanted to be a writer. I was eight, but saw myself writing the great American novel. Oh wait, I was in Norway... so it would be the great Norwegian novel.

I think the obsession with writing started by seeing an old black and white movie about this guy who was a writer. He used a typewriter and was constantly snacking on something called “grilled cheese”. Well, clearly, if all you needed to be a writer was a typewriter and grilled cheese, then I knew that I could do it too.

The typewriter was easy—I asked my parents for one for Christmas. They gave me one that was green and very chic. Oh what a novel I would write on it!

The grilled cheese was a bit harder. We don’t really make grilled cheese in Norway, at least not like you guys do here. But I managed to find a recipe and Mormor and I made some pretty tasty grilled cheeses. It became our favorite after school snack from then on.

It might come as a surprise to you all, but I did not write the great American or the great Norwegian novel. I did, however, write a bunch of cookbooks. I do make a mean grilled cheese! I’m sure Hemingway would approve.

Serves 4

You will need:


1 cup cleaned chanterelles
1 tablespoon butter

salt and pepper, to taste
8 slices good white bread
8 thick slices of Swiss cheese
4 tablespoons cranberry sauce
or jam

  1. Sauté the chanterelles in butter with some salt and pepper until golden.
  2. Place 2 slices of cheese and a tablespoon of cranberries between 2 slices of bread.
  3. Melt butter in a pan and fry the sandwiches until golden on each side.
  4. Cut in half and enjoy with chanterelles on top.
