Extra Four-Cheese Grilled Cheese

Your comforting, classic, childhood grilled cheese with an Italian four-cheese twist!


Servings: 2

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 4 pieces sourdough bread
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • ½ cup fontina cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese shaved
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp butter


1. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Using a small brush, brush the outside of each piece of sourdough bread with the olive oil mix.

2. Lay out 2 pieces of the bread with the sides with the olive oil facing down. On each piece, begin layering the cheeses starting with 2 slices of American, followed by 1/4 cup fontina, 1/8 cup parmesan, and 2 ounces fresh mozzarella. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Top with the other pieces of bread, pressing lightly to adhere.

3. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the sandwiches and cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Once golden, use a spatula to carefully flip the sandwiches and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.

4. Cover the pan and continue cooking for 2-4 minutes to ensure the cheese is completely melted.

5. Remove from the pan, slice, and serve immediately. Enjoy preferably with an arugula salad or some tomato soup!
