Glorious Grilled Cheeses

Grilled cheeses are one of the best comfort foods and very easy to make. If your typical grilled cheese isn’t satisfying your taste buds and you want something different, here are a few options to make your grilled cheese amazing. 

Option 1: Use a different type of bread

          Grilled cheese is often served on white bread, but sometimes, a different kind of bread can your grilled cheese taste even better than it did. Some different types of bread you can use are:

  • Whole Wheat 
  •  Sourdough
  • Multi-grain 
  • Gluten-free
  • Honey 

Option 2: Use different types of cheeses

            If you make your grilled cheese with one specific cheese every time, mix it up! Try making your grilled cheese with another type of cheese or combine two different types of cheeses.  

Some different cheeses you can use are:

  • Cheddar
  • Mozzarella 
  • Swiss
  • Havarti
  • Pepper jack 
  • Colby
  • Monster

Option 3: Add protein

           Grilled cheeses are great with just about anything, so consider adding some protein to your sandwich. It will give your grilled cheese an incredible and unique taste. 

Some proteins you can put on your sandwich include:

  •  Eggs (scrambled or sunny side up)
  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Beef
  • Pork
  • Fish
  • Bacon

Option 4: Add sauces or dips

           There are a million different sauces and dips you could add or dip your grilled cheese in. Sauces and dips add a different texture and taste to your grilled cheese. 

Different types of sauces and dips you can use include:

  • Guacamole
  • Tomato soup 
  • Mayo
  • Mustard
  • Jelly
  • Salsa
  • Cream cheese

Grilled cheeses are one of the best sandwiches ever and work well with almost anything. I encourage you to try these options and think of more that would make your grilled cheese glorious.
