Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Becky in Wisconsin

I call this the ultimate because I have never had anything quite like it. This is another versatile recipe. I used a Havarti cheese, but Provolone would be good too. I wouldn't use a tangier cheese, though, because there is a lot going on in this. But, I do recommend a "white" cheese. Use a good bread, too. A nice crusty bread works best. And, use butter. Also, I did make one sandwich with a slice of prosciuto on it and it was very good also. The mild pepper rings in this recipe are from a jar. Found by the pickles in the grocery store. You can use any heat level you like.

I had to use provolone cheese as an alternate as suggested. There is alot going on in this sandwich, but a very good sandwich. Liked the addition of the pepper rings in this, as it made for a nice lunch. Made for Pick a Chef 2011..

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small food processor, or food chopper, combine the drained green olives, and mild pepper rings and process until coarsely chopped.
  2. Butter the outsides of the bread. Spread one side of your sandwich inside with mustard.
  3. Spread the olive mixture over the mustard side of the bread.
  4. Place the cheese on the olives mixture, and if using prosciutto, lay that on top of the cheese.
  5. Top the sandwich with the other slice of bread, butter side out.
  6. Cook in a skillet until browned on each side.
  7. ENJOY!
