Best Grilled Cheese EVER

Grilled cheese sandwiches have been a staple of my diet for as long as I can remember. My mom taught me to make them by the time I was like eight years old and I've been a fan ever since. They're so easy, delicious, and a great comfort food. A rainy day with grilled cheese and tomato soup? Get a good book in my hand and sign me up.

This grilled cheese in particular is so good. SO GOOD!

Start out with your basics: bread, cheese and butter. The secret ingredient is... drum roll please... mayonnaise! I love mayonnaise and I get the kind made with olive oil. It makes a serious difference! I've had grilled cheese sandwiches without mayo and they're just not as ooey-gooey-delicious as the ones with them.

The second secret step is to lightly toast the bread before starting! You don't want it to be like actual toast, but lightly toasted so that the bread is a little bit rough. It really helps spreading butter!

Mmmm. Butter. I'm clearly very good at spreading it evenly too. Ha! Go ahead and build it like a regular grilled cheese, but don't forget the mayo on the inside! A little bit goes a long way but it really makes all the difference in the world!

On medium heat, cook the sandwich until the sides are golden brown. It shouldn't be so hot that you can't touch it and check the coloring! The sandwich above... Yes please.

You know you're done when you can lift up the four corners of the sandwich and see the melted cheese. Again, it shouldn't be so hot that you can't touch it! Medium heat is key.

The age old question... How do you cut your grilled cheese? For some reason I have always cut it diagonally, and my mom always cuts hers straight down the middle!

To. Die. For. Seriously, taking these pictures was miserable! I couldn't wait to die right in and start eating it.

And when I did, it was worth it.


  1. I do the mayo trick on my bread too! It's SO good.

  2. I prefer mine cut into 4 squares, easier to dip into Tomato soup.

  3. This looks delicious! I've never heard of the mayo trick, definitly have to try it!


  4. I never would have thought to put mayo in there! I wonder what about it makes the difference!

    1. Probably all of the extra fatty calories... I try not to think about it!

  5. Never thought about using mayo! That's a great idea!


  6. I've never used mayo, this is a game changer!! I have to try, thanks for sharing girl!

  7. Wow, who knew? Definitely going to have to try this out!

  8. This looks so delicious. Grilled cheese sandwich is one of my faves. I'm sure Mayo would have tasted so delicious in the combo. I'm def trying next time!

  11. Grilled cheese is my FAV! I've heard the mayonnaise trick before, but I've never actually done it! I usually cut my grilled cheese sandwiches diagonally too haha.

  12. I haven't heard of the mayo trick, but I'm going to have to try that! :)

  13. I LOVE grilled cheese but, to be honest, I like real cheddar. ;-) I typically put some mustard on mine but I'm going to have to try some mayo out! <3

  14. I haven't ever heard of mayo on a grilled cheese but I will have to try it out! I love mine with extra sharp yellow cheddar, green apples and a diagonal cut!

  15. I'm personally not a big grilled cheese fan (I'm more of a quesadilla girl) but reading this post made me think I might have to change my mind haha!
