The sandwich you know and adore is no longer just for kids. The American-single-on-white version, with its soft melted cheese, golden-brown crust, and irresistible buttery warmth, is the delicious classic but grilled cheese also knows how to take a sophisticated turn.
1. Cheddar, Dijon Mustard, Bacon, Tomatoes, Avocado, and Pepper on Sourdough
Dijon mustard and black pepper cut through the saltiness and fattiness of the avocado and bacon. This recipe is quite simple. Combine all ingredients and grill.
2. Gruyere, Prosciutto, Arugula, and Tomato on White
With Gruyere cheese and layers of prosciutto, arugula, and tomato, this sandwich is a merger of grilled cheese and a BLT.
3. Cheddar, Jalapeno, and Cilantro on White
A little heat from the jalapeno goes a long way, and the cilantro adds brightness.
4. Cheddar, Bacon, and Pickles on Sourdough
A dose of acidity from the pickles is the perfect complement to bacon and cheddar.
5. Grilled Ham and Cheese with Pineapple
Last but not least, this sandwich is for the sweet & salty lover.
2 slices sandwich bread
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 ounces thinly sliced ham
2 thin rounds pineapple
3 fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon butter
Layer 1 slice sandwich bread with 1 slice Swiss cheese, ham, pineapple, fresh basil, and another slice of cheese; top with bread.
In a skillet over medium-low, melt butter. Add sandwich. Cover; cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
