This is a tasty. flavorful alternative the normal, everyday grilled cheese sandwich. I tried this at a local restaurant and made up my own "home" version. It is delicious!

My son and I ate this for lunch a couple of days ago. I left the tomatoes off of his. We both really enjoyed it. It had a nice kick to it without being too spicy. DS even asked for two more before bed that evening! I think I will also try it with the vegie cream cheese spread. Thanks for a great new suggestion.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread about 1/2 tbsp of butter (more or less, if you prefer) on one slice of bread, and place on skillet or griddle (butter side down).
  2. On the other side, spread 1 tbsp Chive & Onion Cream Cheese (once again you can use more or less than the recipe calls for, just use your judgment).
  3. Place 1 to 2 tomato slices on top of cream cheese.
  4. Then place 1 slice of pepper jack cheese and 1 slice of cheddar cheese on top of the tomato slices (I don't recommend using more than 1 slice of each kind of cheese, otherwise the sandwich will be overloaded).
  5. Spread 1/2 tbsp of the butter on the other slice of bread and place (butter side up) on the top of the sandwich.
  6. Repeat for the 2nd sandwich.
  7. Cook until golden brown on each side & enjoy!
