This Three-Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich truly is a GEM of a recipe. It's quick to make, savory, and oh so delicious. Melty cheese sandwiched between salty and buttery toasted bread...I'm drooling thinking about eating it again!

  • Frying pan
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife
  • spatula


  • cooking spray
  • 2 slices fresh bread
  • 1 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1 slice pepper jack cheese
  • 1 slice aged gouda cheese
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • ¼ cup Colby jack cheese, shredded
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning


  • Heat a frying pan to medium heat. Then, generously spray pan with cooking spray.
  • Butter each slice of your bread on the side that will be on the frying pan. Place both pieces next to each other in the pan.
  • Put 1 slice of pepper jack cheese on one slice of bread. Place a slice of aged gouda on the other slice of bread.
  • Next, spread mayo on one slice of cheese. Whichever slice that is, put the shredded cheese on that slice. It will act as a glue for the shredded cheese to keep it from getting all over the place.
  • Sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top of the shredded cheese.
  • Put the slices of bread together. By now, the cheese will have started to melt and will help keep the sandwich together naturally. 
  • Lastly, flip once or twice so both sides of the bread are a beautiful golden brown. If you need to turn down the heat to a medium-low so the bread doesn’t burn, please do.
  • Heat up your favorite soup and enjoy!


You don't want to store this sandwich for later. Due to the delicious freshness that is a grilled sandwich, you really should be eating it right away!
Get GOOD bread. It doesn’t have to be wildly expensive. Homemade or fresh from your local bakery is best. If it's still slightly warm and has crusty edges, it will make this sandwich EXTRA delicious.
Using a little bit of mayo when assembling the sandwich will help the shredded cheese stick to the sliced cheese and prevent a mess.
