Double Decker Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Recipe

These are just a bit more work to make than a regular grilled cheese sandwich, but well worth the few minutes of extra time spent!

These sandwiches are great for lunch anytime of the year, and we love having them for dinner in the winter with a bowl of homemade tomato soup.  These are good on any type of bread, and I know that we all like it best when our families are eating whole grain breads.  However, I’ve got to tell you, these are absolutely “killer-good” on white bread!!  I compromised and made a loaf of white bread in the machine last night.

This recipe can be easily adapted to any size family by increasing or decreasing the ingredients proportionately.  I doubled the recipe for us today.  Left overs can be reheated in the oven the next day, too!

Double Decker Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

1 cup grated cheddar cheese (sharp cheddar is especially good)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
6 slices bread
Paprika (optional)

In a food processor, blend cheese and butter.  Add egg, garlic salt and onion salt.  Process for one minute or until creamy.

Spread 2 Tablespoons of cheese mixture on each slice of bread.  Stack two slices of bread BOTH with CHEESE SIDE UP.  Sprinkle with paprika if desired.  Cut each sandwich in half diagonally.  Place sandwich halves on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.  Makes three sandwiches.

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your households!
Proverbs 31:27

  • Those sound really good.  My daughter and I love grilled cheese sandwiches, but my hubby doesn’t becasue he says they are too “greasy”.  Will have to try it, maybe tomorrow for lunch.

    Oh by the way I truly do enjoy your blog.  When I first started reading it, I figured your husband’s name was Copper because maybe he had red hair.  Then I found out he was a police officer.  My husband is also a police officer here in Houston. 

    Hope you have a wonderful afternoon.


  • Sibyl – these aren’t at all greasy, so hopefully your husband will enjoy them!!

    LOL – I’ve had several gals think that my husband was a red head!!    I’m not sure when we started referring to my hsuband as being a “copper”, but it just sort of stuck! 

  • Oh, I have been looking foward to seeing this recipe, Cheryl!! They look SO yummy and I can’t wait to try them! I love how you cook them in the oven!

  • There is NOTHING better than a grilled cheese on squishy white bread, except fried bologna (yep, all those nitrates LOL).

    No matter how sick we are, that has always been what DH and I, even before meeting, always turned to for comfort food.

    I will have to try these. We also love leftover biscuits, split and topped with pimento cheese and then broiled til gooey and bubbly. I bet your cheese mixture would be good on split and broiled biscuits too!
