Best Grilled Cheese and Turkey Sandwich

Total Time

This recipe might sound strange... who ever thought of using mayo on a grilled cheese instead of butter?? Try it, you'll see. It makes a great crunch on the bread. And you can use fat free mayo... I don't think fat free butter exists. I haven't found a cheese I don't like with this sanwich. You can also switch up the meat.

I guess I'm an odd one because I was raised in a "mayo on grilled cheese" household and think butter ones are weird. This is truly one of my favorite things in the world, especially when combined with tomato soup!

Wonderful and delicious sandwich. I would never have thought to put the mayo on the outside, but it works. I used swiss instead of provolone. I will be making these often in the future. Made for Honor Thy Mother - and be Gluten-Free, too! Tag Game.

I just had this delicious, easy to make sandwich for lunch. I used regular mayo and honey flavored deli style turkey. The mayonaise was a nice surprise, tasty but not heavy like butter can be. thanks for sharing this recipe.
