Fancy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

5 from 6 reviews

Some new twists on an old favorite


  • For each sandwich, you need:
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 ounce of cheese
  • 2 teaspoons soft butter
  • For a Margherita Use: tomato slices, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese, minced garlic
  • For Apples ‘n’ Chedd Use: sliced apples, sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Butter one slice of bread with 1 teaspoon butter and lay, butter side down, in a skillet.
  2. Slice the cheese thinly and lay half the cheese on the bread in the skillet.
  3. Top that with the other filling ingredients.
  4. Top the filling with the rest of the cheese slices.
  5. Butter the second piece of bread and lay it on top, butter side up. (For the Margherita, spread the minced garlic on top of the butter)
  6. Turn the heat to medium and cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has softened and the bread is toasted.
  7. Carefully turn the sandwich and cook another 1-2 minutes.
  8. Let cool slightly before cutting in half.


Experiment with different cheese and filling combinations:
Swiss, Muenster, or cream cheese
sliced turkey, ham, salami, or other lunch meats
sliced apples or pears
condiments such as mustard or sweet chili sauce or fruit jams
