Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

A quick comfort meal at my house is always tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Since DH and I are both 50+, I feel that _perhaps_ we may be ready for a more grown-up version of this meal. Let's start with the sandwich. If I don't get _fired_ over this, I'll tackle the soup next. ;-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place slices of bread on a cutting board. Brush topsides with olive oil. Turn over one side of bread (so oiled side is facing down).
  2. Top with desired fillings in the order listed.
  3. Place remaining slices of bread on top (oiled-side-up)and cook on a preheated nonstick griddle for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cheese is melted.

I enjoyed this sandwich! I used some from a couple of the styles. I used cheddar cheese, artichoke hearts, red onions and black olives. Thanks!

This is a really good sandwich. I made it the Tex-Mex style and it tasted great. I want to try the other versions as well!

Yummy, yummy! We had it Tex-Mex Style and what a great treat and change from plain grilled cheese. I ended up doing 3 sandwiches with 6 pieces of bacon but didn't crumble. I definitely want to try the other types, too! Thanks for posting, SusieQusie!!
