I've been making grilled cheese sandwiches for years and always change things up. This is my absolute favorite technique - just one ingredient makes a world of difference.


  1. Heat a skillet over medium.
  2. Spread cream cheese on both slices of bread.
  3. Top each bread slice with a slice of cheese and close the sandwich.
  4. Butter the outside of the bread and fry briefly until golden brown on both sides.
  5. Once you've put cream cheese on your grilled cheese sandwich, you'll never have it any other way.
