Top Rated American Cheese Recipes

Do you remember when you were a kid and thought it would be so cool to be a grown up because you could eat whatever you wanted? Well here you are. And what better way to satisfy younger you than with your favorite snack food with dinner in the form of a nacho grilled cheese sandwich.  If you’re a fan of jalapeno poppers, this nacho spin on grilled cheese is made for you. All you need is jarred pickled jalapenos, American cheese, white bread and butter. You don’t even need to dice up the jalapenos — just place the slices right on top of the cheese and gently press down with the other slice of bread to lock it all in. This is another one where you should start with the base of a classic grilled cheese.

You can turn many meals into breakfast by adding an egg on top — or, in this case, in the middle. American cheese, a slightly runny yolk plus toasty bread equals the most delicious breakfast grilled cheese. To make, fry an egg on medium-low heat until the yolks are just set, but still a little jiggly. Place a slice of American cheese on one piece of bread, pop the cooked egg in the middle and top with the other slice of bread. Cook as you would a classic grilled cheese.

waffle
Creamy macaroni and cheese is turned into a waffle in this recipe, and the best part about these breakfast/lunch/brunch treats is that every bite has crunchy corners! We use GNT's Exberry fruit and vegetable colors to give these waffles that yummy shade of yellow, but you can use a sprinkle of turmeric to achieve the same golden glow.Recipe courtesy of Christina Olivarez, corporate executive chef for GNT USA Inc.

Classic Grilled Cheese Recipe
An amazing grilled cheese sandwich is simple, and yet in that simplicity, so rife with potential disaster. There are few things as sacrilegious as a failed grilled cheese sandwich. There’s nothing worse than biting into a grilled cheese sandwich and finding that the bread isn’t properly caramelized and crunchy and that, for the love of all things cheesy, the cheese isn’t melted all the way through. Are you kidding? Seriously? To avoid failure and to achieve grilled cheese perfection you have only to keep five things in mind: a sufficiently but not overly grilled exterior, correct cheese-to-bread type, correct cheese-to-bread ratio, use of butter, and cheese that is melted all the way through.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese French Toast
Quick: Name two perfect breakfast foods. Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches and French toast, you say? So do we. So why not combine the two?  Even though the idea sounds like it might have been hatched late at night in a college dorm room, and we're sure it was at some point in time, we decided to go all-in and see what we could come up with. Thick slices of brioche-style pullman loaf get a soaking in salted eggs and a brown on the griddle, then two slices get filled with thick-sliced bacon and American cheese and finish melting in the oven.  The end result? Try it and find out for yourself.  Click here to see Fall in Love with Breakfast Again — at Dinner.

So many people are trying to jazz up their grilled cheese recipes these days – and while I’m not hating it – I can’t resist a good old-fashioned grilled cheese. I like using sourdough bread for mine because I feel it gives the perfect amount of crunch. The use of American cheese pays homage to my Kraft singles days, while the Cheddar spruces things up a bit. Don’t shy away from the mayonnaise either, I promise it’ll taste like a regular grilled cheese, with just an extra hint of flavor and a lot more texture.
