Variations Ideas

  • Change Cheese – Feel free to change the cheese to yellow cheddar, white cheddar cheese, Swiss, and Gruyere. These substitutions give the grilled cheese delicious flavor.
  • Additions – For added flavor add slices of cooked bacon, ham, pesto, slice tomatoes, or spinach.
  • Butter Mixture – Make a parmesan butter spread by adding in a tablespoon of parmesan cheese to the butter. We have even added in garlic powder for additional flavor.

Step by Step Instructions

Heating skillet

Step 1 – Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.

Spreading butter on slice of bread on a plate

Step 2 – Butter one side of each slice of sourdough bread with the softened butter. If using mayonnaise, spread it on the opposite side of one slice of bread.

Step 6 – Cook for 4-5 minutes on one side or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese starts to melt. Carefully flip the sandwich and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes. Cook until the other side is golden brown and the cheese is fully melted.

  • Step 7 – Remove from the skillet and let it sit for a minute before slicing. Cut the sandwich in half and serve immediately.

Recipe Tips

  • Cooking Temperature: The cooking time is based on a medium heat setting. Monitor the heat closely during testing, as cooking on too high of a temperature could cause the bread to brown too quickly
    without melting the cheese.
