The Web’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

If we had to choose one simple comfort food to eat for the rest of our lives, it would be grilled cheese. Sure we would eventually have to pay for two airline seats and purchase a Neti Pot to keep our nostrils clear, but you know what, it’d be worth it. If you’re in the same boat, here are The Web’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches that you can cook up and enjoy too.



Sweet Hot Mustard and Jarlsberg Grilled Cheese

If you haven’t swam in the delicious waters of sweet hot mustard before, it’s high time you got your feet wet. Yes, wet with mustard. The stuff is the go-to oversees for Weisswurst and other dishes, and is ideal here with some Jarlsberg cheese.  (Recipe)



Caramelized Cheese Covered Grilled Cheese

The only thing better than cheese is more cheese (see: Stuffed Crust Pizza). Which is why this grilled cheese sandwich finds itself comfortably on this list. There’s nothing crazy inside the two slices of bread, but outside – in the words of a certain New Orleans chef – BAMMM! We will now proceed to coat all our food in a caramelized cheese covering. (Recipe)



Shiitake Mushroom and Chipotle Grilled Cheese

Any recipe that ends with, “Serve with a cold beer,” is good in our book. Actually, you’ll want that beer to wash down the little bit of heat contained in this sandwich. Feel free to leave out the cilantro if you’re a hater. (Recipe)



Roasted Beet and Chevre Grilled Cheese

The name of this sandwich sounds far fancier than the amount of work you’ll put in making it. That’s why we recommend making it for a picnic date. Women love picnic dates! It also happens to be pretty aesthetically pleasing . . . until you get some on your pants. (Recipe)



Brown Butter Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Nothing crazy here, just one little trick you might not be doing when frying up some grilled cheese – browning the butter. It changes the flavor of the sandwich slightly and you’ll realize your mom should have been doing this since you were wearing Garanimals. Oh, and it’s got onion rings inside for good measure.  (Recipe)



Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Sometimes you need to tuck your napkin into your shirt and look like a rich, stuffy old man when you eat. This would be one of those times. Between the bacon grease and the guacamole, you could wind up with part of this sandwich on your t-shirt. You’d then have to eat that t-shirt.  (Recipe)



The Flatiron

The Flatiron is like a gourmet McDonald’s breakfast menu in sandwich form. Complete with hash browns, bacon and egg, it’s the best way to start your day. And you don’t need to be up by 10:30 to enjoy one. (Recipe)



Roasted Garlic & Gruyere Cheese Toasties

We freakin’ love garlic. When a recipe says “A clove” we read “A bulb.” Our breath could keep up to three states clear of vampires after a meal. Which is precisely why we dig this recipe for Roasted Garlic & Gruyere Cheese Toasties.  (Recipe)



Dark Chocolate and Parmesan Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Apparently science and our drunken brain have a lot in common, like figuring out that cheese and chocolate taste delicious together. Well, not all cheese and not all chocolate, but in this case some dark chocolate and Parmesan. You’ll get some looks when you serve these up but will come out looking like a genius when everyone is asking for a glass of milk and a second helping.  (Recipe)



Grilled Cheese Croutons

Curveball! But this is brilliant. Few things are so well matched as a classic grilled cheese sandwich and some tomato soup. Here the sandwich becomes part of the soup itself. For additional insanity, dip and scoop with another grilled cheese sandwich! (Recipe)
