Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Buckwheat Queen

"More method than recipe, I heated up my panini maker one night to make a grilled cheese, only to find out that I'd left the waffle plates inside. Instead of changing out the plates, I used them anyway and I loved the outcome. The sandwich gets super crispy but the cheese is still soft and gooey inside the little squares. It's my 'go to' method for grilled cheese now. Serve with spicy pickled veggies on the side!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  2. Mix mayonnaise and Dijon mustard together in a bowl; spread onto 1 side of each bread slice. Sprinkle pepperjack cheese over mayo-mustard layer of 2 bread slices. Cover cheese layer with a second bread slice, creating 2 whole sandwiches.
  3. Place 1 sandwich in the waffle iron, taking care not to push down all the way. Wait until the bread begins to soften from the heat before starting to gently close the waffle iron, about 2 minutes. Apply more pressure to the top part of the iron, eventually closing it after a total of 3 to 4 minutes. Cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining sandwich.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use gluten-free bread.
  • Use primo sale cheese in place of the pepperjack, if desired.

Grilled cheese is classic but as an adult I like it with a twist. The mayo and mustard combination + the pepper jack is exactly what I was looking for! The waffle iron made it fun for my daughte...

Great recipe that definitely has you saying "now why didn't I think of that"? If you love grilled cheese give this method a try -you won't be disappointed!

Believe it or not, my mom made them in the waffle iron in the 60's. Had forgotten all about this.

It is super easy! I wish I did it years ago!!
