Grilled CheeseCan't remember where I found the idea of baking grilled cheese sandwiches a couple of years ago but finally decided to give it a try and they turned out great! Not only is the bread toasted nice and crispy when baked in the oven but the melted cheese seems even more tasty gooey!

Baking your grilled cheese sandwiches in the oven is also a great time saver when you're feeding a lot of people and with minimal cleanup if you line your baking sheet with foil.

Since I love anything Caprese, I chose to try that first but be creative! Try it with turkey, chicken or ham slices and/or tomato slices with your choice of cheese or even your favorite tuna mixture. Switch up the herbs too ;-)


  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 thin slices mozzarella
  • 4 large thin slices tomato
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Layer the cheese and tomatoes on two slices of bread. Evenly sprinkle each with basil and vinegar and top with remaining bread slices.

Mix the oil and garlic salt in a small bowl, and brush over the outsides of both sandwiches.

Place sandwiches on a foil lined baking sheet, bake for 5 to 7 minutes until the bottom side of the sandwich is golden brown. Flip the sandwiches and bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes until other side is golden brown and serve.

Spice up those boring grilled cheese sammies. Heat a large skillet over low heat. Spread butter or mayonnaise on to one side of two slices of the bread.

Of course you can flavor these up a tad with a bit of diced jalapenos, super thin sliced tomatoes, and/or some finely chopped cilantro or basil. Preheat a grill to medium high. Arrange slices of bread on a work surface.

For Sunday lunch, we used to have grilled cheese sandwiches and Campbell's tomato soup for a good combination. I would melt butter in the frying pan and make 4 sandwiches and cook them until they were browned, flipping them and flattening them with the spatula.


I think that's how I warped my electric frying pan.
