    • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

      Our melty Dijon and cheddar grilled cheese offers delectable variations. For a vegetarian grilled cheese, load it with cucumber, tomato, and onion, or adapt the sandwich recipe to include salami, pepperoni, and roast beef.

    • Muenster, Cabbage, and Apple Sandwiches

      Pack coarsely shredded cabbage and sweet apple slices into this grilled cheese sandwich to give the easy lunch even more substance. Enhance the mellow flavor of Muenster, our cheese of choice, with stone-ground mustard.

    • Loaded Grilled Cheddars

      Here's a grilled cheese sandwich fit for meat-lovers. Sort of a cross between the classic grilled cheese and a BLT, this cheddar melt is loaded with mushrooms, tomatoes, and -- most important -- crispy bacon slices.

    • Smoked Gouda and Apricot Melts

      Dried apricots and toasted almonds bring sweetness to this savory Gouda grilled cheese sandwich recipe. The fruity combination gets a punch of flavor from green onions.

    • The Meltiest Cheese Ever

      Forget the sliced stuff. Freshly shredded cheese is the fastest way to make a gooey grilled cheese sandwich. We'll show you how using a food processer, a cheese grater, or even a vegetable peeler.

    • Tomato-Avocado Grilled Cheese

      Parsley and lemon juice combine with creamy avocado to make a tasty spread that gives the ordinary tomato grilled cheese a boost of refreshing flavor.

    • Tuna and White Bean Panini

      This creamy, dense Havarti grilled cheese gets the Caprese treatment with tomatoes and basil. Add some tuna, cannellini beans, and a little onion for one well-rounded sandwich recipe.

    • Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich

      In our humble opinion, bacon makes everthing better. Avocado doesn't hurt, either. So we put them together in our simple grilled cheese that's awesome with smoked cheddar or pepper Jack -- or both!

    • Farmer's Market Grilled Cheese

      Fresh-from-the-market tomatoes, spinach, and zucchini stack up to one scrumptious cheese sandwich when piled between two slices of crisp sourdough bread and herbed goat cheese.

      Taleggio and Pear Panini

      Taleggio, a mild and creamy Italian cheese with a slight fruity tang, stars with ripe pear slices and a smidge of honey in this easy grilled cheese panini recipe. If you don't have Taleggio, try Brie cheese instead.
