Almost Instant and Always Fabulous Grilled Cheese!

This recipe is so simple that I hesitated to post it, but it has given me so much joy that I decided to share it anyway. The recipe makes a diner-style grilled cheese in less than three steps, and, better yet, it involves no frying pans and no griddles. How? You use your George Foreman grill! I am almost ashamed to admit that I make this recipe at least twice a week. Sad, I know… :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices white bread (high quality if at all possible, sourdough is great!)
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • margarine, to taste


  1. Heat indoor grill. Meanwhile, butter the two slices of bread as if you were buttering toast.
  2. Put bread slices buttered side out, and, between them, sandwich the cheese.
  3. When the grill is hot, plop the sandwich on the grill.
  4. Your sandwich is done when it is golden and puffy, just like a diner grilled cheese! Perfect!

Yummy! I used a stovetop grill pan and loved this simple sandwich. Thanks juniperwoman for a great treat. Made for Cookbook Tag.

My favorite use for my indoor grill is making sandwiches. This kind is my favorite, too! However, I don't butter the bread at all (a nod at trying to be healthy) although I do admit to adding extra cheese. It's wonderful!
