Top 10 Grilled Sandwiches


Grilled sandwiches are one of the best quick meals around, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. These recipes are some of my favorites, including the way I make the simplest and best grilled cheese sandwiches in the world.

The best way and easiest to make grilled cheese sandwiches that are crisp on the outside and warm and melty on the inside is to assemble the sandwich, then butter just the outsides of the bread. Place on a preheated griddle set to low heat, and cover. Grill until the first side is browned, then flip with a spatula and cover, grill until the second side is crisp. Slice and serve immediately. Use your favorite breads, cheeses, meats, fruits, and vegetables along with your imagination to make fabulous grilled sammies.

Baking a 'grilled' sandwich is a wonderful way to make a bunch of sandwiches quickly. No more standing at the stove and flipping sandwiches! You can make the sandwiches without the pesto too.

The filling for this easy sandwich can be used as a last-minute appetizer too. Keep a batch of it on hand to feed hungry kids, or just for a quick grilled or cold sandwich.

5. Grilled Ham and Gruyere Sandwiches

This sandwich has one of the best sandwich spreads as its base: a combination of mayonnaise and grated Parmesan cheese. Then it's topped with smoky and suave Gruyere cheese, thinly sliced ham, roasted red peppers, and basil leaves. Wow.

Salmon is so good for you, and in this sandwich spread it's delicious and creamy. You can serve the spread as a dip too; just add some more mayonnaise to reach the desired consistency.

10. Bacon Crisp Sandwiches

This unusual way of cooking bacon turns it into a gourmet treat. I'd add some Swiss cheese and baby spinach leaves to this sandwich before it's grilled.
