Extra Special Grilled Cheese Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

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 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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter one slice of bread and place in frying pan or on griddle. Place cheese on bread.
  2. Butter the second slice of bread and place butter side up on top of cheese.
  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. I prefer mozzarella or Colby jack cheese with strawberry jelly or American cheese with grape jelly.
