Different Ways to Make Grilled Cheese Using Sourdough Bread

A good grilled cheese sandwich isn’t hard to make, but there are many variations you might want to try. Here are some different ways to make a grilled cheese. Since sourdough bread is the star of the day, use sourdough for these variations.

Tomato Bacon Grilled Cheese

This is a simple variation of a traditional grilled cheese that is super easy to make and really adds to the overall taste and appeal of the simple sandwich. A bacon and tomato grilled cheese is essentially a BLT without the lettuce, but adding in the cheese. You can use any combination of cheese you like for this sandwich, from going with a classic cheddar, to adding in some provolone or gruyere cheese. Add some thin slices of heirloom tomatoes and cooked bacon, and spread on some mayonnaise to the inside of the bread before grilling it up.

Pesto Grilled Cheese

This is another sandwich that is just a slight variation on the grilled cheese you know and love. By making a pesto beforehand, you are adding a kick of flavor without too much work. The pesto can be made in a food processor with ingredients like basil, pine nuts, garlic, and some parmesan cheese if you like. Spread it on the inside of the bread, then add some mozzarella or provolone cheese. White cheese does tend to taste a little better when making a pesto grilled cheese.

Veggie and Ricotta Grilled Cheese

Ricotta is a really fun cheese to use in grilled cheese! Even better than that is the fact that it tastes wonderful when you are making a grilled cheese that includes different types of vegetables. You can choose any you like, though bell peppers and spinach are a great place to start. Also include some tomato slices or onions if you like that type of flavor. Another vegetable to consider adding to the ricotta grilled cheese is kale if you prefer it over spinach.

Apple Grilled Cheese

If you want a little crunch and some sweetness in your grilled cheese, adding apple slices inside the bread pieces is a great addition. Gouda, brie, and gruyere are both wonderful choices when you are going to make an apple grilled cheese. The crisp flavor of green apples is highly preferred over using red apples.
