Prep: 10min

Total: 15min


  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 3 slices deli-sliced Gruyère cheese

  3. Top each piece of bread with 1½ slices of the Gruyère cheese and sprinkle one slice with the pinch of Luke’s special seasoning, then cover the pan and cook until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Remove the lid and spread the lobster meat over the melted cheese on one piece of the toasted bread. Flip the other on top to sandwich and make the grill cheese. Let cook until the lobster is warmed through, 1 minute more.
  5. Transfer to a plate and serve.
