This is the BEST grilled cheese in the world, and I mean that for a variety of reasons. After making it this way, I don’t think I will ever go back to plain ole grilled cheese, and neither will you… trust me! My kids are OBSESSED with it.

If you want to elevate this recipe even more, serve it with my Tomato, Chipotle & Goat Cheese Soup, you are gonna love it!

I always get asked where my Plates are from, they are from Anthropologie.

Why You’ll Love Best Grilled Cheese

The combination of the crispy fried cheese against the gooey melty cheese and buttery bread is truly an experience! It’s super easy to make and the process is worth it… I’m telling you it’s incredible! I love serving it with soup and dip the grilled cheese in it… ooof chef’s kiss.


I used my favorite cheeses for this, however you can use any cheese that floats your boat. I do recommend a very soft melty cheese for the one you will fry directly on the pan, as it yields better results and a hard cheese like a parmigiano or aged manchego for crusting the bread!
