A Beautiful lightly Toasted Grilled Cheese Sandwich filled with Cheese. Perfect all by itself as a snack and optionally with Dipping Sauce or served alongside with Tomato Soup or other Soups.

Bread

The Classic is White bread. Other types of Bread can be used. Such as Sour Dough Bread, Rye Bread, English Muffins with all its nooks and crannies to hold on to cheese with, or Ciabatta Bread.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Brush On

The Classic version is brushed with Butter. Mayonnaise works exceptionally well. Aioli, Garlic Butter, and other Compound Butters can be used or Flavored Oils.

Seasoning

I most often add the addition of Powdered Parmesan & Romano Cheese. It cooks up really nice and adds some flavor to the bread.

Other Herbs & Spices can go on the outside as well such as Chives, Parsley, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Dill Weed, Thyme, Aleppo, and Chili Flakes.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Filling

The Classic Cheese filling is American Processed Cheese Slices. I prefer Velveeta Cheese Slices, but any other cheese can be used. It’s entirely up to you.

I have used Cheese Whiz Spread by itself and in addition to using a cheese slice as well as Mozzarella and Mozzarella with Provolone Cheese. A Variety of other cheeses may include Monterrey Jack, Habanero Cheese Slices, or Swiss.

Other Fillings

Add additional Items like Bacon, Canadian Bacon, Roast Beef or other Deli Meats, Pickles, Tomatoes with Mozzarella Cheese, Sauteed Mushroom with Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese.

Just don’t add too much, the focus or centerpiece is the Cheese.

Salt & Pepper

In almost all cases add a bit of Salt & Pepper to season. If adding Bacon or other ingredients that contain salt you may want to skip the Salt or not add as much.

If brushing the outside with a Spicy Sauce or adding in spicy ingredients like hot sauce or hot peppers. Skip adding the Black Pepper or don’t add as much.

Exchange the Black Pepper with White Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Chili Powder, Chipotle Powder, Ancho Powder.

Dipping Sauce

Serve a small dish of dipping sauce.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Variations

Quite a few variations of the Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich. You just can’t go wrong with Bread and Cheese. Serve as a Sandwich by itself or with Dip. Serve with Soups as a side Sandwich.

Notes

If making more than one Grilled Cheese Sandwich, the Pan will eventually get too hot. Just remove it from the heat source to cool down some before making your next Grilled Cheese Sandwich and lower the heat slightly.
