The BEST lobster grilled cheese recipe! Chunky lobster meat is sandwiched between melty layers of cheese and a lemon mayo sauce brings it all together.


Units Scale
  • 24 oz. cooked lobster tails (or 1 8-oz. lobster tail)
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 2 tsp. fresh chives
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 4 slices Sourdough bread or French boule
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 5 oz. Havarti (freshly shredded, a little less than 2 cups)


  1. Cook lobster tail if necessary and remove meat from shell. Roughly chop, still leaving big chunks. (Air fryer lobster instructions here.)
  2. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, chives, and cracked black pepper.
  3. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat.
  4. Spread one side of bread with a thin layer of butter and other side with a thin layer of the mayonnaise mixture. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
  5. Place two of the slices of bread onto the griddle (butter side down). Top with half of the cheese (about ¾ cup for both slices), and divide lobster meat over cheese layer. Top with remaining cheese and other slice of bread (butter side up).
  6. Cook for about 4-5 minutes until bread is golden brown, flip over and cook another 3-4 minutes, until cheese is melty and bread is golden brown.
