Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich

There are so many ways to make a grilled cheese sandwich, but this is my favorite. It's a classic grilled cheese, no frills, no extras.

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are a staple that everyone should know how to make. And there are so many variations to the sandwich, you can truly make it your own.

We have tried with a few different kinds of cheese, and my favorite has always been muenster cheese, with regular whole wheat bread. We started getting the Muenster cheese more often lately because the boys will eat it, and we like it for sandwiches.

You can change it up with different types of bread, other cheeses, or even add some meat and it becomes something totally different. Justin actually used to make his in a different method than I do, but this is how my dad taught me and how Justin now makes them too.


This recipe is for two sandwiches, but it’s very easy to make more at the same time.

Step by Step

Heat a flat pan over medium heat. Grab two slices of bread per each sandwich you plan to make and butter one side of each slice.

For each sandwich, place one slice of bread, butter side down, on the warm pan then add a slice of cheese on the bread.

Cover the cheese with the other slice of bread, butter side up, to make your sandwich.

Cook for about 3-5 minutes, then flip carefully so the sandwich doesn’t fall apart. Cook the other side for about 5 minutes as well.

If you like your bread more toasted, then cook a little longer on each side as desired.

    Oh Gosh Grill cheese – one of my favorite comfort foods. I love it paired with Trader joes Tomato and red pepper organic soup.

  6. Yum! Have I told you lately that I love your recipes? 🙂 Seriously, its been a while since I had grilled cheese. That’s because of a no-carbs season I am in. BUT this post got me wanting to break the rules and grill one this week. “A grilled cheese sandwich messed my life”, said no one ever!

  7. Grilled cheese sandwiches have always been one of my favorite and easiest meals to make. I like American Cheese best or a mix of Cheddar and Mozzarella !!
