Basil Grill Cheese Sandwich

Updated: Jan 28, 2023

Coating this sandwich in a mixture of butter and fresh basil gives a delightful floral taste and crispy exterior once its toasted in the oven. Filled with Gouda and cheddar cheese makes this one of the best tasting grilled cheese sandwiches to pair with a creamy bowl of soup whether its Tomato Soup or Tomato & Basil soup.

Who doesn't love an ooey gooey crisp grill cheese sandwich? My secret to my best ever grill cheese sandwich is I toast mines under the broiler. I didn't stutter, I do not fry them in a cast iron skillet. I like the toasting of the broiler in the oven. The broiler ensures the cheese is melted and both sides of the bread are lightly toasted providing the great crunch and not too greasy. Great for dipping in soups.

Ingredients Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich

4 slices Sourdough Bread

1 cup shredded Gouda and Cheddar Cheese

2 Tablespoon of melted Butter & Basil

Grilled cheese sandwiches are so simple and easy to make. The key to any great grill cheese is the cheese. Cheddar cheese have a sharp, somewhat earthy, and pungent flavor. Gouda is a great melting cheese that is rich, nutty, with a hint of sweetness. You can switch out the cheese to your favorite whether it's Swiss, Gruyere, Monterey, or Colby.

Let's Cook!

Step 1 Melt the butter and basil and Shred the Gouda and Cheddar cheese to add to the sandwich.

Step 2 Place the bread on a cookie sheet. Spread the melted basil and butter on one side of the bread. Add the shredded cheese

Step 3 Place the bread under the broiler for about 4 minutes. Keep your eye on the sandwich. The broiler cooks fast.

Step 4 Once the bread is lightly toasted and the cheese is ooey gooey melted, top and flip to toast the remaining side

Ready to serve!

Bon Appetit, ENJOY!
