Reeeeeeally good. I don't think I've ever had pickles with grilled cheese before. I used dill pickle chips. Thanks so much for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 slices pumpernickel bread
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened (1/2 stick)
  • 8 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 slices emmentaler swiss cheese (if you can't find, use gruyere or Jarlsberg)
  • 2 large dill pickles, thinly sliced lengthwise (or sweet, if you prefer)


  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spread one side of all 8 slices of bread with butter. Spread the other side of 4 of the slices with the Dijon mustard.
  2. Top each mustard coated bread with a folded slice of Emmentaler cheese and place some pickle slices on top. Cover with a second slice of bread, buttered side up.
  3. Place the sandwiches in a hot skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, toasting and crisping the bread.
  4. Cut the sandwiches in half from corner to corner and serve! Enjoy!
