The Ultimate Grilled Cheese ~ French Bread Stuffed with THREE Different Types of Cheese and Grilled to Perfection!

My love affair with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches began a long, long time ago. It was way back in college in the good old dorms rooms. Man it brings back some awesome memories. How did I not realize how much fun college was and how carefree my life was? It was the simplest times and I just wanted to be done. Done and out making money!

To bad the bills are also larger now! Right?

I went to school for Hotel/Restaurant Management so this included a lot of cooking classes, but sometimes you just can’t beat the simplest things in life like a comforting Grilled Cheese.

In the “Dorm” all we had was a shared kitchen. It wasn’t ideal and let’s face it there were some odd people in that dorm that I didn’t really want to intermingle with. My amazing roommate brought a Grilled Cheese maker. Now if you are looking for a gift for a college student please share the grilled cheese love with them and give them one! So simple.

The Ultimate Grilled Cheese ~ French Bread Stuffed with THREE Different Types of Cheese and Grilled to Perfection!

Whenever we had a midnight craving we’d whip up a grilled cheese loaded with cheese because really that ooey, gooey makes the grilled cheese.


Soon the boys learned. The secret was out. Our epic grilled cheeses were the talk of the dorm! We had boys flocking to our room to try one of them. Especially after we had been out to late on a weekend doing things that I shouldn’t speak of.

P.S. Dad could never figure out why I had a “migraine” every Sunday morning when he called me. Shhhhhh. Secrets safe with you right? And he doesn’t know what the internet is!

I set out on a mission to top my beloved simple grilled cheese and did I succeed or what! This Ultimate Grilled Cheese is loaded with three different types of cheese, seasonings and piled onto thick, hearty French Bread!

Now as I let this secret out I hope the boys don’t come flocking to my house for one. My hubs might not be to receptive to that!

    I saw this recipe last summer and made up batch. Now no one will eat a plain grilled cheese ever again. We love ours on sourdough. Recently, I had the thought to add artichoke hearts to the mix. Oh my Heavens…. you have to try it. It just brings the sandwich up one more notch (which I didn’t think was possible). I put a slathering of the cheese mixture on the bread and then a layer of the hearts, which I halved and squeezed all the water out of. To. Die. For! I think next time chop the artichoke hearts a little smaller and just mix them into the cheese mixture. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

    • Julie Evink

      Ahhh I’m so excited at the thought of artichokes I had to reply right away! We also tried bacon bits in it and it was amazing!!!!

      • Cynthia

        Oooooo. Bacon! I’m warming up my griddle right now! 🙂

  • Jackie

    Oh, this looks so good! Thank you. 🙂 Have you ever tried making a grilled cheese using pimento cheese? Another good one. Maybe I’m just addicted to all things cheese. 😉

    • Julie Evink

      Pimento cheese?! I’ve gotta try this now!
