Bread, butter and Cheddar cheese - here's a way to make this classic sandwich in a nonstick pan.

Grilled Brie and Pear Sandwich

Rating: 4.75 stars
This grilled Brie and pear sandwich is dedicated to National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, which happens every April 12, thanks mostly to bored food bloggers and cheese-industry marketing cartels. I'm looking at you, Wisconsin.

Caprese Salad Sandwiches

Rating: 4.5 stars
Everyone knows there's no salad like a Caprese salad on a hot summer day. Fresh-picked basil and tomatoes with just a hint of seasoning. I always use a whole spelt loaf when I make this recipe. The notes of the spelt combine perfectly with the light/summery flavors of the other ingredients. Very earthy. Also, fresh ground pepper and chunky sea salt make this dish pop even more. Muah!

Grilled Camembert Sandwich

Rating: 4.29 stars
Quick lunch treat for unexpected guests or just a reason to spoil ones self! Use brie cheese if you do not find the Camembert at your store. Use a really nice rustic bread for best results.

Basil Pesto Sunshine Sandwich

Rating: 4.28 stars
This is a sandwich you'll never forget. Two kinds of pesto are spread on focaccia, which is then piled high with roasted red peppers, feta cheese and basil.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Rating: 4.59 stars
If you order a tuna melt in a New Jersey diner, you'll get something very similar to this! My method of topping the tuna salad with cheese FIRST, then tomato and more cheese, keeps the toppings from sliding off the bread.

Christy's Awesome Hot Ham and Cheese

Rating: 4.55 stars
I love making this easy grilled ham and cheese sandwich on a cool night with a cup of tomato soup.

Inside-Out Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Rating: 4.64 stars
In my humble opinion, this crispy, crunchy, cheesy masterpiece is the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich. Make sure you follow some basic rules for this to work properly. Only use airy, nutritionally insignificant white bread. Use a nice sharp cheddar and be sure to use a quality non-stick pan over medium to medium-low heat.

Hawaiian Roll Roast Beef and Cheese Sandwiches

Rating: 4.78 stars
Easy, make-ahead, bite-sized sandwiches with Hawaiian rolls.

The Munroe Melt

Rating: 4.77 stars
I created this sandwich one weekend when I couldn't decide whether to have turkey, roast beef, or ham. This sandwich has all three! You can substitute Italian roast beef for the regular roast beef to take this sandwich to another level. Most supermarket delis carry the Italian, you just have to ask. Also, the order of the ingredients is important for all of the tastes to blend properly.

Lazy Chicken Parmesan Grilled Cheese

Rating: 4.83 stars
Wanted to eat a chicken Parmesan sub but didn't feel like spending the time cooking and breading chicken. So I opted to cut corners using frozen chicken patties and pre-prepared ingredients to make my life easier. Picked up the sub rolls and couldn't justify eating that many calories, so opted instead for sliced Italian bread and thin-sliced cheese. Turned out so surprisingly good, I thought I'd share. Enjoy!
