Grown Up Grilled Cheese (See Jane Make)

I hesitate describing anything as "grown up" but since I used sriracha in the 'recipe', I deemed it appropriate.  Grilled cheese is possibly my favorite type of sandwich; what's not to love about melted cheese paired with crusty bread that's grilled with sizzling butter?  I love to add avocado for a little more texture and lightly swipe on some mayo combined with a dollop of sriracha   My tip for making a grilled cheese even better: use butter both in the pan AND on the bread and cover the grilled cheese while it cooks--it really melts the cheese.

What do you use to spice up your grilled cheese?  I'm always looking for new additions!

  1. Yum! This looks so delicious! Avocado is a great addition. And I bet adding a slice of tomato would be great as well.

  2. You're never too grown up for grilled cheese! This looks heavenly (especially today since FL is still in a cold snap).

  3. YUMMM! We add sliced sandwich meat between the cheese - for more protein and they turn out delish!

  5. Love, love, love grilled cheese! I recently made a jalapeño popper version, it was awesome. And a french onion soup version with sautéed onions. I would attach the links to the recipes, but for some reason my pinterest isn't working.

  9. I've had grille cheese this way, and its amazingly good but oh so bad later. However, its a great guilty pleasure. I've also have had it with tomato + avocado + cheese + finely chopped jalopenos. Its delicious.

  13. This sounds GLORIOUS. I love adding a little chipotle aioli and bacon to a good Swiss on some kind of super crusty bread.

  14. I love grilled cheese, too! Grown up comfort food. I'll spice things up with two different types of cheese (sharp cheddar and smoked gouda are my hubby's current faves) and lately - we've been adding a sun dried tomato paste.

    Of course...making it a grilled cheese BLT and adding tomato, lettuce and bacon never hurts!

    Will definitely be trying the avocado.

  15. I don't normally spice up my grilled cheese sandwiches. Just butter. Cheese. And, bread. Ha! Classic.

    Thanks for the inspiration! This sounds & looks quite tasty.

  23. This looks so yummy! I like to spread goat cheese on one side and use a lighter-flavored cheese like mozzarella for mine. Sometimes I'll add a few slices of pear for something sweet.
