Dress up plain-Jane grilled cheese sandwiches with fancy cheeses, and a bit of truffle oil, for a new variation on a classic finger food. Make these on Super Bowl Sunday and use a football-shaped cookie cutter instead of trimming off the crusts for a fun appetizer.


  • ½ pound (2 sticks) salted butter, melted
  • Truffle oil or chile oil (optional)
  • 20 slices bread, preferably potato bread
  • One 12-ounce package 4-cheese blend, preferably grated Asiago, Parmigiano-Reggiano, fontina and provolone
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach or arugula leaves


Add a few drops of truffle oil or chile oil to the melted butter, if you want to be fancy.

Place a piece of wax paper on each of 2 baking sheets. Spread out 10 pieces of bread on each baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, brush each piece with butter and turn it over, or if you don't have a pastry brush, just drizzle with butter. Sprinkle two tablespoons cheese on each bread slice and cover with spinach or arugula.

Place the other piece of bread on top and butter the top of the bread completely.

You can cook the sandwiches in a large frying pan or on a griddle. Spray a frying pan with olive oil spray and bring to medium-high heat. Place 4–5 sandwiches in the pan and let them brown for 2–3 minutes. Flip them over and cook for 2–3 minutes, or until brown. I press a weight on the top of the sandwiches to get them crispy, but you can use a spatula to hold each one down.

To serve, cut off the crusts, then cut each sandwich into 6 bite-size pieces. Serve warm.

Mini sandwiches are one of my favorite appetizers to serve at parties! I also love serving Pinwheel Sandwiches because of how easy they are to serve. Both mini sandwiches and sliders are super easy to make ahead of time making them the perfect party sandwiches for a crowd!

It's not easy to mingle at a party with a plate full of food and utensils. So why not serve a selection of mini sandwiches as an appetizer or even the main course!? Layer a few savory ingredients, add a delicious spread or some cheese, and a few bites later, your guests will be asking for more.

I mean, who doesn't like a good slider? Mini sliders are a great way to keep your guests satisfied, without needing a plate or a chair to sit down! They are easy to eat, filling, simple to prepare, and can be made in advance!

Mini Grilled Cheese Ingredients

This is ALL you need to make them for yourself:

  • 1 long French baguette (about 300 g)
  • Mayonnaise or butter for grilling the bread (I prefer mayonnaise for these because it helps get that really golden, crispy coating)
  • Shredded white cheddar (I highly encourage you to shred it yourself from the block, here’s why)
  • Jarred or homemade pesto (I don’t have a homemade pesto recipe, but the Classico brand store-bought pesto is great)
  • Salt and pepper

What is the best cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich?

Depending on your taste preference, there are a variety of cheeses that can make excellent grilled cheese sandwiches. The most popular types of cheese used to make grilled cheese sandwiches are:

  • Colby – this cheese might look identical to some cheddar cheese out there, but many argue it is the absolute best cheese to use for a grilled cheese sandwich. It is often combined with Monterrey Jack and Swiss cheeses on grilled cheese sandwiches.
  • Provolone – this cheese can give an Italian twist on your grilled cheese sandwich and goes especially well with pesto.
  • Cheddar – when you think of a grilled cheese sandwich, you are most likely thinking of cheddar cheese. This delicious cheese can range from mild to sharp in flavor so you can get the exact taste you are looking for.
  • Muenster – this soft cheese is perfect for spreading on a grilled sandwich.
  • Monterrey Jack – this flavorful cheese melts well for the gooey grilled cheese sandwich of your dreams.

Grilled Cheese Roll Ups

After making french toast roll ups for the boys and seeing how much they love them, I immediately started thinking of a savory twist to roll ups that I could start making for a fun after-school snack or quick weeknight dinner. Wrapping cheese inside the roll ups was the first thing that came to mind so I decided to give them a try and test them out on the boys.

And, of course, they love them! Believe it or not, they actually like them better than a classic grilled cheese sandwich, especially Barrett. Barrett has always just picked the cheese out of his grilled cheese sandwiches instead of eating the whole thing. We&rsquore always asking him why he won&rsquot eat the bread and he just asks for more cheese. The boys loves his cheese!

Well, anyway, he will actually eat these grilled cheese roll ups without unrolling them and picking out the cheese and they all love dipping them in tomato sauce, ranch or tomato soup.

I found that a good shredded cheddar cheese works best for easily rolling the bread and giving the roll ups an even distribution of melted cheese&hellip

They&rsquore so easy to make as they&rsquore just like a classic grilled cheese sandwich except you go ahead and cut off the crusts (which most kids request anyway) and you roll each slice up instead of sandwiching two slices of bread together. Here&rsquos a quick glance at how they&rsquore made&hellip

I&rsquoll sometimes make a double batch to keep in the refrigerator so I can put them in the boys&rsquo lunchboxes throughout the week or easily reheat them in the microwave for a quick snack when we&rsquore on the go. Yummy yum yum!

Let me know if you make these for the kiddos or even yourself by leaving a comment below. And I love seeing pics when y&rsquoall make my recipes, so be sure to tag #thebakermama on Instagram if you post a pic!

Serving Taco Grilled Cheese

Once you’ve fried them it’s time to throw on your taco toppings! In reality you can use any toppings you fancy, the only one I strongly recommend is sour cream. This not only helps glue together all the toppings, but it also helps tame the spice and keeps the sandwiches from tasting too dry. Beside that here’s what I use:

Can I make these ahead of time?

You can make them without the toppings then store in the fridge/freezer and reheat in the oven. The texture will be slightly more dry/crunchier so do make them fresh if you can (more on this in the recipe card).

Alrighty, let’s tuck into the full recipe for these mini taco grilled cheese sandwiches shall we!?

What To Serve With Grilled Cheese

How about a second grilled cheese? Is that an option?

Sure, you could pair this with a light green salad (no fun) or some crispy french fries, but I love serving these mini grilled cheese with the always classic tomato soup. Other ideas include chocolate chip cookies. That suggestion came from my kiddos.

They’re not wrong, you know!

50 Insanely Good Grilled Cheese Recipes

Because who doesn't love a melty, heavenly grilled cheese sandwich?

Maybe you're looking to spice up your favorite easy weeknight meals and comfort food recipes, or you're looking for the ultimate kids' dinner ideas. Either way, when these epic grilled cheese recipes are on the menu, everyone is happy. Here, we're kicking things off with an easy how-to for the perfect grilled cheese sandwich recipe. Then, well, let's just say we're not holding back on ideas for what to put in the middle (Gruyère, bacon &mdash there's even some bourbon in the mix). So, without further ado .

Try our basic recipe to get started: Heat a small nonstick skillet on medium. Spread mayo (yes mayo) on tops of two slices of bread (about ½ in thick). Flip one piece over and top with 2 oz (about 4 thin slices) American or Cheddar cheese and sandwich with the remaining piece of bread, mayo side up). Add a thin pad of butter to skillet, swirling to melt, then place sandwich in and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 min. Flip, add another thin pad of butter and cook, pressing gently with a spatula until golden brown and the cheese has melted.

Parmesan dusted on the outside of the bread creates an extra-crispy crust that you won't be able to resist.

Chutney made with peaches, mango, onion, vinegar, raisins and fruit tea is the perfect sweet-and-spicy contrast to melty Gruyère.

Um, we might have just spiked your grilled cheese. Call us crazy, but adding a splash of Bourbon to caramelized onions really works.

Pimento peppers add a Southern twist to your favorite grilled sandwich.

Juicy pears and arugula are a perfect match for that wedge of Gouda you're looking to devour.

Try a grilled cheese with whole wheat bread and mozzarella for a lighter take.

Rather than make grilled cheese and tomato soup, why not just combine the two flavors into one epic sandwich?

Like a classic sloppy joe, but make it cheesy.

Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Hey there, friends! I’m back today with another simple and totally delicious recipe. I’m always looking for easy yet flavorful party snacks, and these mini grilled cheese sandwiches are a winner.

As I’ve mentioned before, My mom and I are getting ready to set sail on a cruise. I’m ridiculously excited. Of course, I’ve been perusing the Carnival site in order to learn about all of the activities and dining options. We are sailing on the Carnival Breeze, and I noticed it has a restaurant called The Taste Bar. It’s basically a restaurant of snacks. Snacks, people! I live for snacks. Anyway, when I was looking through the photos and saw these little grilled cheese sandwiches, I was inspired to create my own.

I used two different cheeses in my sandwiches. Since there are only two main ingredients, bread and cheese, you want to use the good stuff. For these, I’m using Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar and Kerrygold Dubliner. When I made my Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, I discovered that these two work well together so I knew the combination would also be perfect for sandwiches.

For the soup, you can certainly make your own. However, I just picked up a really thick and hearty premade tomato basil bisque.

Let me walk you through the recipe then we will talk about presentation.

Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 12 slices white bread
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 7 ounces Dubliner cheese, sliced
  • 2 cups tomato basil soup

Begin by preheating a large skillet on medium heat. Then, generously butter one side of a slice of bread.

Place the bread butter side down onto the skillet then top with a slice of each cheese. Butter a second slice of bread on one side and place it butter-side-up on top of the sandwich.

Grill until lightly brown and then flip over. Continue grilling until both sides are golden and the cheese is melted. Do the same with the remaining bread and cheese.

Allow the sandwiches to cool slightly. Trim off the crust and cut the sandwiches into 4-5 thin strips.

Heat the tomato basil soup in the microwave or on the stove and serve on the side.

And that’s it. I really love these as an appetizer because they are classic comfort food. Plus, they are not overly fancy, and you can still make them look really special and elegant. Here are a couple ideas:

One possibility is to set all of your mini sandwiches on one plate and serve with a bowl of tomato soup for dipping.

So simple, but still really beautiful and fun.

If you have a bit more time, and maybe a smaller group, you can set up individual servings. Use shot glasses for serving the soup and pair with two mini grilled cheese sandwiches.

Who knew that grilled cheese could be so fancy, right?

However you decide to serve them, you really need to give this recipe a try at your next gathering. I promise your guests will rave!

Oh, and be sure to swing by the Carnival website and check out some of their other on-board dining options.
