(1 oz. slices)
Wash your blackberries and pat dry.
Place the blackberries, maple syrup and water into a small pot and bring to a boil.
Mash the blackberries with a potato masher or fork.
Turn down heat to a simmer and cook until almost all the liquid has cooked down. You should be left with something similar to a very chunky jam when it has cooled a bit.
Using either oil or vegan butter, grease the outside area of your sandwich slices.
Place one piece of bread, greased side down, in a skillet.
Place 4 slices of cheese on the break, breaking it up as needed to get it to fit properly.
Place the second slice of bread over that and turn the heat to medium.
Once everything is cooking nicely, turn the heat down to a medium-low and cover the skillet for about 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on things so the bread doesn't burn.
Flip sandwich as needed for cooking.
Once the cheese has melted, transfer sandwich to a plate.
When the bread is cool enough to handle with your fingers, remove the top slice of bread from the sandwich and spoon on the blackberry mixture.
Place the bread back on top and serve.
