Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Home>> Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich

It’s incredibly simple, but it yields an undeniably crave-able best grilled cheese sandwich. This grilled cheese is crisp and golden on the outside and deliciously melty in the middle (see that cheese pull?!). Brought to us by Love And Lemons.

Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich


2 slices sourdough bread


Dijon mustard

1 to 2 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese, depending on the size of your bread

1 to 2 ounces grated Gruyère or raclette cheese, depending on the size of your bread

Butter, for the pan


Place the bread slices on a cutting board and spread the top side with a thin layer of mayo. Flip one slice of bread and spread its other side with Dijon mustard. Layer the cheddar and Gruyère or Raclette cheeses on top of the mustard, then place the other slice of bread on top of the cheese, mayo side out.

Heat a nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat and melt enough butter in the bottom of the pan to coat it. Place the sandwich in the pan, cover, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bottom slice of bread is golden brown and crisp. Flip, replace the lid, and cook until the other slice of bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 1 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low if the bread is getting too brown before the cheese is fully melted.

Slice and serve.
