Grilled Cheese for Grown-Ups

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. You can also try to make it with provolone or mozzarella.

Gruyere, Red Onion, Prosciutto, and Pepper on Rye

With its peppery finish, this combo is reminiscent of a Reuben sandwich. You can also use ham or pastrami if you prefer.

Pressed Mozzarella Sandwiches

Store-bought pesto, tapenade, and roasted red peppers are a quick and easy way to dress up a grilled cheese sandwich with bright Mediterranean flavors. The creamy fresh mozzarella melts beautifully.

Fontina, Oil-Packed Tuna, and Relish on White

Take your tuna melt to the next level! Use your choice of sweet or dill pickle relish.

Cheddar, Bacon, and Pickles on Sourdough

A dose of acidity from the pickles is the perfect complement to bacon and cheddar. Add sliced peperoncini or pickled jalepenos for a spicy kick.

Cheddar, Jalapeno, and Cilantro on White

A little heat from the jalapeno goes a long way, and the cilantro adds brightness. Serve this sandwich with a dish of salsa for dipping.

Cheddar, Dijon Mustard, Bacon, Tomatoes, Avocado, and Pepper on Sourdough

Dijon mustard and black pepper cut through the salty richness of the avocado and bacon. Sliced tomato adds the perfect note of acidity.
