Four Cheese Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! Yes, that’s a thing! This grilled cheese recipe is the perfect way to upgrade your sandwich for this fun foodie holiday. I make mine using a sandwich maker. The T-fal OptiGrill Plus is a great option, and you can find it at Bed Bath & Beyond– but if you don’t have a sandwich maker, no worries- you can make it the old fashioned way!

  • 1/4 cup (50 ml) shredded

  1. Blend the butter with the parsley, Parmesan cheese, garlic and pepper until well combined. Spread the butter mixture evenly over one side of each slice of bread.

  3. Turn the T-fal OptiGrill Plus on. Select the sandwich program and press OK. Once the purple indicator light has stopped flashing, place the sandwiches on the grill and close the lid.
  4. Cook until the indicator light has changed to red or until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted.
