Looking for a yummy grilled cheese sandwich? Check out our adult twist on this classic sandwich for Grilled Cheese Month here!

How many of you love a good grilled cheese sandwich? While it is something many people reserve for kids, it is really one of those classic sandwiches that are good for all ages. Honestly, we love making these sandwiches in our home since they are not only easy to make, but easy to dress up to fit just about any taste. With April being National Grilled Cheese month, we are excited to share with you our families favorite grilled cheese recipe.

In our household, the secret to a good grilled cheese sandwich, especially for an adult, is quality ingredients.  For us, it is a good garlic herb butter, bacon, specialty cheeses, and of course, a high quality wheat bread. Probably one of the best breads we have used for sandwiches in our household, especially grilled cheese sandwiches is Klosterman’s. We especially love their honey wheat since this whole grain bread has the right amount of flavor without being overwhelming. Best of all, this bread is made right here in our Cincinnati area and can be found at most Kroger stores!

So, ready to make a delicious sandwich for National Grilled Cheese Month? Make sure to tell what you think of our Grilled Cheese for Adults Recipe!

  1. Start heating up a cast iron pan or your preferred pan.
  2. Butter your slices of bread with the Chef Shamy Butter.

    Grilled cheese is a favorite of mine along side a bowl of tomato soup. Especially on a cold winter’s day. I like this recipe.

    I love grilled cheese especially when you feel unwell because it is comfort food. My favorite bread to use is artisan and we usually like to use American cheese.

    Yum, now this is a grilled cheese. I love the idea of herbed butter and good cheese. I also love grilled swiss on rye with good stone ground mustard.

    Fremch Onion Butter with Asiago! I can never get enough of Asiago! And the Jarlsberg, the Parmesan! Using the Honey Wheat Bread is a wonderful idea, I love the combination of sweet and savory!
