I cannot think of a better comfort dish than this Cheddar and Gruyere Grilled Cheese with Honey.
With a combination of sourdough bread, two cheeses and topped with honey and fresh thyme, this will soon become one of your favourites too.
Let’s face it: any cheese can be used to make a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich! I’ve tried everything from parmesan, goat cheese, mozzarella, swiss and brie. However, the combination of gruyere and cheddar cheese creates a perfectly gooey, melty, drool-worthy, melted cheese combo that just can’t be beat. Trust me – you’ve got to add these two kinds of cheese to your next shopping list!
Grilled cheese has been a go-to for me for lunch, dinner and maybe a midnight-snack here and there because generally I always have bread and cheese on hand. So, let’s get to my latest grilled cheese obsession!
I love using sourdough for grilled cheese because it adds a little extra flavour. With this recipe I combined two cheeses to amp up the flavour even MORE and the honey drizzle goes beautifully with both. Plus, a little sprinkle of thyme goes a long way to bring all of the flavours of this grilled cheese recipe together.
I’m just going to say it – this Cheddar and Gruyere Grilled Cheese is pretty special! And, easy to whip up in the kitchen so let’s get to it. And an easy recipe to whip up in the kitchen that any foodie is sure to enjoy. So let’s get to it!
Cheddar and Gruyere Grilled Cheese with Honey
A delicious combination of old cheddar and gruyere sandwiched between sourdough bread for the tastiest Grilled Cheese, then topped off with a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of thyme.
- 4 slices fresh sourdough bread
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 75 g old white cheddar, grated (about 3/4 cup grated cheese)
- 75 g gruyere cheese, grated (about 3/4 cup grated cheese)
- honey to drizzle
- fresh thyme for garnish
Grate both cheeses, mix together and set aside. Next, lay out your bread slices and spread one side of each piece of bread with butter.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium/medium-low heat and allow the pan to heat up for a couple of minutes.
Place 2 slices of bread butter side down into the pan. Divide the cheese evenly between the 2 slices of bread and then place the other slices of bread butter side up to complete each sandwich.
Cook for about 5 minutes. Then press each sandwich down a bit to flatten and flip the sandwich.
Cook until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly and the bread is golden brown.
Remove from the pan, drizzle with honey and fresh thyme leaves, and then serve immediately!
Deliciously cheesy, the honey pairs perfectly with the salty cheddar and gruyere cheese and the fresh thyme adds a little punch of freshness.
I could eat this Cheddar and Gruyere Grilled Cheese sandwich every, single, day. And, for a complete cozy meal, enjoy your sandwich with a side of chopped apple and my Roasted Tomato Soup!
