Cajun Grilled Cheese

Add some southern flair to a classic

Seasoning isn't one-size fits all so when making a cajun-inspired grilled cheese sandwhich you first need to get your spice blend down. Cajun seasoning requires cayenne pepper, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, thyme and onion powder plus salt and pepper. 


  • 2 slices ½ inch thick white bread
  • 2 slices cheddar or American cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • your cajun spice blend to taste


Sandwich 2 slices of cheese between 2 slices of bread.

Preheat a skillet, and melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low heat.

Spread or brush the outside of the sandwich with 1 tablespoon mayo and then sprinkle on your cajun spice mix. Cook until light golden brown, about 4-6 minutes. Flip the sandwich, (add more butter to the pan if needed) and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is melted, another 4-6 minutes. You can press down on the sandwich gently so it browns evenly, but don’t smash it.
