20 Mind-Blowingly Delicious Grilled Cheese Recipes You Must Not Miss

Those of you familiar with my writing (or who have spoken with me for more than 2 minutes) already know that I’m a little obsessed with cheese. And by “a little” I mean “will probably name my first child ‘Camembert.'” As such, there are very few things I take more pleasure in than a grilled cheese sandwich. Some poor, misguided people think that this is a relatively boring thing to get excited about. Clearly, they’ve never tried getting decadent with their cheesy creations.

Here are just a few ideas on how you can make your next grilled cheese the meal of a lifetime.

1. Persimmon, Prosciutto and Brie Grilled Cheese

    This is a match made in heaven. Both prosciutto and brie work beautifully with sweet, fruity flavours, which makes it the perfect match for persimmons. You could also switch them out for a quince paste or something similar.

    2. Taco Grilled Cheese

      Yes, we Mexi-CAN! The only thing wrong with this is the distinct lack of taco shells between the bread. I would definitely add them, and maybe a few corn chips. I’m not even close to joking.

      3. Parmesan Crusted Pesto Grilled Cheese

        A simple variation, but a fresh and delicious one. This can be made all the better if you grow your own herbs.

        4. Mac & Cheese Grilled Cheese

          Pasta and bread, together at last!

          5. Lasagna Grilled Cheese


            Recipe Source

            If the mac and cheese sandwich was too dull for you, smash some lasagna on your grilled cheese like the champion you are. Admittedly, it’s more like a ‘lasagna flavoured’ grilled cheese, but I encourage you to just use some leftovers instead. I don’t think an ordinary sandwich loaf would cut it though. You’re going to need a bigger bread boat.

            6. Double Bacon Cheeseburger Grilled Cheese

              Why choose between and sandwich and a burger when you can have the best of both worlds? I’m legitimately drooling right now.

              7. Short Rib Grilled Cheese

                I was drooling before, but now I have a river escaping my mouth. I think I may need to build an ark. Succulent ribs with melted cheese–can life get any better?

                8. Chipotle Chicken Grilled Cheese

                  Chipotle is so tasty. Recently, it feels like I’ve been adding it to everything so, naturally, I highly approve of its addition to grilled cheese.

                  9. Roast Turkey, Cranberry and Brie Grilled Cheese

                    Recipe Source

                    You no longer have to wonder about using up all of those Thanksgiving leftovers!

                    10. Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, and Muenster Grilled Cheese on Soft Pretzel

                      Recipe Source

                      This one’s for those of you who love tasty, tasty German food.

                      11. Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

                        Recipe Source

                        Bacon, cheese, and avocado together is the best combination.

                        12. BBQ Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

                          Recipe Source

                          Sweet and tangy slow-cooked pork mixed with cheese? Can I get a “Hell, yeah”?

                          13. Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese

                            Recipe Source

                            Once you pop, you can’t stop.

                            14. French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese

                              Recipe Source

                              Taking the best part of French onion soup, and shoving it between some bread, is nothing short of pure genius.

                              15. Baked Potato Grilled Cheese

                                Recipe Source

                                This recipe exists because grilled cheese obviously needs even more carbs.

                                16. Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

                                  Recipe Source

                                  Please excuse me while I pass out from flavour overload.

                                  17. Vegetarian Grilled Cheese

                                    Recipe Source

                                    Because grilled cheese doesn’t require meat to be delicious.

                                    18. Dulche de Leche and Mascarpone Grilled Cheese

                                      Recipe Source

                                      didn’t think that grilled cheese was confined to the realms of lunch and dinner, did you? This gorgeous caramel sensation will blow your mind, as well as make the perfect dessert, or even breakfast.

                                      19. Dark Chocolate, Raspberry and Brie Grilled Cheese

                                        Recipe Source

                                        Are you more of a chocolate fan?

                                        20. Brie and Blueberry Waffle Grilled Cheese

                                          Recipe Source

                                          Yeah, you did just read that correctly. Who needs bread when you can use waffles!? I would also recommend bagels, as an alternative.

                                          The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

                                          Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

                                          There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

                                          Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

                                          Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

                                          Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.

                                          Here are some tips to help you prepare for your next camping trip.

                                          1. First off, you must have found the perfect campground that best suits your outdoor adventure. If you haven’t, then you should. Sites like Reserve America can help you find and reserve a campsite.
                                          2. Find or create a good camping checklist that would best suit your kind of camping adventure.
                                          3. Make sure the whole family is involved in making out the camping check list or downloading a proper checklist that reflects the families need and ticking off the boxes of already accomplished tasks.
                                          4. You should make out or download a proper checklist months ahead of your trip to make room for adjustments and to avoid too much excitement and the addition of unnecessary things.
                                          5. Checkout Camping Hacks that would make for a more fun camping experience and prepare you for different situations.
