Try these Grilled Cheese Tips & Tricks:

  1. Rather than fussing with flipping a fully loaded grilled cheese while cooking stove-top, try baking them in the oven instead.
  2. Better quality bread is essential to a great sandwich. Snag a fresh loaf from your grocery store’s bakery, and don’t be afraid to try some fun flavors.
  3. You can turn any flavor or ingredient you love into a grilled cheese. Some add-in ideas include: bacon, chicken, tomatoes, caramelized onions, peppers, marinara sauce, pesto, vegetables, onion rings, Ro-tel, artichokes, mushrooms, and more.
  4. Great grilled cheese dipping sauces include classic tomato soup, Red Pepper Soup, Spicy Sriracha Tomato Soup, blush sauce, marinara sauce, alfredo sauce, pesto, and more.
  5. When choosing your cheeses, pick at least one strong, flavorful cheese (like sharp cheddar or parmesan) and pair it with a really melty cheese (like Muenster or American).
