You Need A Grill For Grilled Cheese

You Need A Grill For Grilled Cheese

How can you call a sandwich made in a skillet a “grilled” anything? In my world, that’s just fooling yourself!

So how do you make grilled cheese on a grill? It’s easy… Just set up the grill for medium heat, and put the sandwich right on the grate. Turn it 90 degrees after a minute or so, then turn it over and repeat.

If you place the sandwich at a 45 degree angle, then turning it 90 degrees gives great crosshatch marks. Using a lower temp allows the cheese to melt without burning the bread.

And don’t limit yourself to just bread and cheese. I tried brie and blueberries, and it was great. Olives and gouda work great, too, and you can always add bacon!

  1. I’m not even much of an olive person, but gouda and olives sounds like a great combination of flavors. The idea itself is awesome. I’ll never be able to look at a fried cheese sandwich the same.

    • I’m going to try this with cast iron presses, too, but the addition of a bit of wood smoke can’t be beat… one more reason to take your grilled cheese out to the grill!

  2. I love that shot of the smoke coming off of it, great capture.

  3. I love to sprinkle some sliced jalapenos through mine. The melted cheese wraps around them nicely and they give you a great burst of flavor.

  4. This looks amazing- I never would have thought to throw a grilled cheese sandwich on the grill -I’m sure going to try it now!
