I know you might be thinking…what’s the big deal, it’s just grilled cheese, but wait…just wait. With this tiny change, you’ll have the best-grilled cheese sandwich and made in your own kitchen!



For Two Grilled Cheese Sandwiches:

  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 slices of white sandwich bread (something like Farmhouse Style)
  • 6 slices of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (or whatever you like)
  • a spread of tomato jam topped with caramelized shallots


  1. Using room temperature butter (or slightly melted), mix with an equal amount of mayonnaise. Whisk together and spread on one side of all four slices.
  2. Put into a cast-iron skillet and spread a thin layer of tomato jam on each slice and top with caramelized shallots.
  3. add the slices of cheese and the top piece of bread.
  4. cook on medium heat, watching closely,
  5. and turn when the crust on one side is golden brown. You can put a lid on top resting on the grilled cheese for a more even crust. (it will stick to the buttered bread, so be careful when removing and getting ready to flip.
  6. adjust the heat according to how much time your cheese needs to melt and remove when the cheese is melted perfectly and the crust is golden brown on both sides!
  7. Enjoy!


I love a yummy grilled cheese beacuse you can always have the ingredients on hand. It’s the perfect meal on a rainy night, or after returning from a vacation. I’ve made this grilled cheese at 6 pm and at 3 am and it’s the BEST GRILLED CHEESE ever!

Sandwich bread and a block of cheese that keeps forever, and butter and mayo and that’s all you need. If you have a jar of tomato or fig jam and onion or a shallot that you can caramelize in a little olive oil…do that!
