English Muffin Grilled Cheese Sandwich
The nooks and crannies in English muffins are perfect vessels for the gooey melted cheese in this spectacular and super easy grilled sandwich. It is simply made from an English muffin, cheese, and butter. You can use any cheese you like, but–cheese purists cover your ears–processed American cheese melts the best. If you’d like to try another type of cheese, it is best if you use shredded as it will melt more evenly.
Baked Grilled Cheese Pesto Sandwich
This recipe takes the typical grilled cheese up a notch with the addition of basil pesto. Nestled between the two slices of cheese, the pesto gently heats while the cheese melts and bread turn golden brown and crisp. Baking a “grilled” sandwich is a wonderful way to make sandwiches for a crowd quickly. No need to stand at the stove flipping sandwich after sandwich!
Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This recipe brings two comfort food favorites together in one savory sandwich. A garlic-and parsley-flavored butter is spread on bread which is then toasted until golden brown. Shredded cheese, such as mozzarella or cheddar, is placed between two slices, and the whole thing is cooked until melted and crispy. Delicious dipped into pizza or marinara sauce or served on the side of a plate of pasta.
Whole Wheat Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This is the classic way to make grilled cheese sandwiches but with whole wheat bread for a healthy twist. The ingredients are just bread, butter, and American cheese. It’s retro, and it’s delicious! If you steer clear of American cheese because of the artificial color, you can use white American cheese instead. It is available sliced and will melt the same way as those orange squares.
Grilled Chicken and Apple Salad Sandwich
This grilled sandwich is filled with tender chicken, sweet and tart apples, and melted cheese. Unlike most grilled cheese sandwiches that place sliced cheese between the bread, this recipe calls for adding shredded cheese to the chicken salad mixture. The sharpness of the Swiss cheese combines nicely with the tartness of the apples. This easy, delicious, and filling sandwich can be eaten for lunch or dinner.
Grilled New Cuban Sandwich
You can use any two types of cheese or meat in this simple grilled sandwich recipe. What makes it ‘Cuban’ is the pressing of the sandwich as it cooks, and the combination of ingredients. Pickles, cheese, and several kinds of meat are typically used in this sandwich.
See? You just need only several minutes to get the grilled sandwich done. Much easier than you think. This will be a perfect dish for breakfast or lunch for one portion. And there will be no leftovers!
