    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    Friends taught us to do this when we were kids. I just don't think a 'plain' grilled cheese sandwich is near as good.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Butter one slice of bread and place in frying pan or on griddle. Place cheese on bread.
    2. 2
      Butter the second slice of bread and place butter side up on top of cheese.
    3. 3
      Fry on medium heat until golden brown, turn over and fry other side of sandwich. Remove from heat and spread jelly on the TOP of the sandwich and serve.
    4. 4
      I prefer mozzarella or Colby jack cheese with strawberry jelly or American cheese with grape jelly.

      My grandma use to make this for us all the time! I'd forgotten about it. She always served her grilled cheese sandwiches (homemade bread of course!) with her home canned apricot jam. OK, I'm drooling now! Thanks for reminding me to make this for my kids!-HK

      I grew up on these and it never occured to me that grilled cheese sandwiches didn't necessarily mean with jelly. I have no idea how Mom came up with this combo. I just know that no one I knew has heard of it, that is until now. The only difference being...the jelly was inside the sandwich with the cheese. You had to let the sandwich cool for a few moments because straight from the pan, the jelly was very hot. I was eating these sandwiches well over 50 years ago...and this is the first time I heard of anyone else having them. Mom only made them for me with american cheese and grape jelly....but these are the BEST, I will have to try it with the jelly on top. The plus side to this, you don't have to wait a few minutes for the jelly to cool.
