Grilled Cheese with American and Swiss Cheese

One of my favorite sandwiches is a grilled cheese sandwich. I made this version with a combination of American and Cheddar cheese.

There is nothing complicated about this sandwich, but you do have to pay attention the entire time so you don’t burn your bread. Since there are so few ingredients, use the best quality bread, cheese and butter.

If you haven’t seen the movie Chef with Jon Favreau, check it out. There’s a scene in the movie where he makes grilled cheese sandwiches for him and his son. He shows how making something so simple can be so good.

Make yourself a nice cheesy, gooey, grilled cheese sandwich. 🙂

Grilled Cheese with American and Swiss Cheese


  • 2 slices of good Sourdough bread (or your favorite bread)
  • 2 slices of American cheese (yellow or white)
  • 2 slices of Cheddar cheese
  • Butter



Pre-heat a pan over medium heat


Generously coat one side of each piece of bread with butter


Put the slices of bread buttered side down in your pan


Add cheese to each slice of bread


As the bread begins to brown and the cheese begins to melt, combine the slices to make the sandwich (you may need to adjust the heat, you don't want it too hot or the bread will burn before the cheese melts)


Periodically flip the sandwich until the bread is browned to your liking


Remove from the pan and slice in half


Serve immediately
