Which cheese for grilled lobster sandwiches?

I just saw a picture of a platter of small lobster sandwiches. They looked yummy!

What kind of cheese would you use?

And what kind of mayonnaise / dressing?

Homemade mayo and no cheese.

Another vote for "no cheese". My lobster sandwich preference is melted sweet butter if the lobster is warm, best mayo you have if the lobster is cold.

I don't like lobster rolls, myself. But yes, that are primarily lobster and mayo.

The only cheese I can think of would be grated Parmigiana Reggiano, used sparingly with some lobster meat sautéed in butter on a toasted baguette or hoagie roll. I just made that up. It sounds good in my head. Your results may differ.

I haven’t made or used lobster in quite a while, but I think that a nice mild cheese like provolone would be very nice in a lobster roll. It goes really well with krab!

We get crayfish here which are similar to your lobster. I do swaps so I always have 3 or 4 in the freezer. Now this might sound funny but this is an amazing sammich.
I discovered it by accident when in kaikoura years ago.
Buttered white bread, mashed boiled egg with butter so it's soft as. Liberal slices of cray, then thousand island dressing, lots pepper.

Voila

The only time I use cheese on lobster is when I make lobster diablo.

Pictures don't have taste buds. Just because it looks appetizing doesn't mean it's the best way to eat lobster. Lobster meat is delicate, and it's easily overpowered. The best lobster rolls are just lobster meat with a minimal amount of mayo, served on bland New England style hot dog buns. Some add a tiny amount of chives or celery, but personally I don't like either. I would never hide the lobster flavor with cheese, salad dressing, or any spices.

provolone was my first thought as well- Small pieces and not too much.

Pictures may not have taste buds but they can make your taste buds drool!

Hellman's might be a good choice but yes, you must go lightly as with all the seasonings. I personally do add stuff but again... lightly. I like the crunch of a tiny bit of celery, the moisture of the dressing to help hold it together, I also have a preference for white pepper.

Although adding cheese is not "traditional" - "yuh gots'ta try everything once, twice if yuh likes it!" and create your own tradition.
