My Favorite Grilled Cheese Recipe!

I don’t know many people who don’t appreciate a good grilled cheese sandwich – and I am no different! Today I am sharing my favorite grilled cheese recipe and a little about how it came to be a personal (and now) family favorite.

I was raised by a single mother who often worked long hours and so I spent the daytime through my early childhood with a sitter. I can remember one specific babysitter who always made the best grilled cheese sandwiches. She had a half a dozen little hungry children to feed, but she always took the time to add one special ingredient…

Peanut Butter!

Now I know this sounds less than appetizing to some of you, but I promise if you just give this easy grilled cheese recipe a try, you’ll be hooked!

Peanut Butter Grilled Cheese Recipe

(makes one sandwich)


  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • softened butter or margarine
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 2 Tbs peanut butter (we like Peter Pan)

Now to make the sandwich…

Heat your favorite skillet or griddle to medium-high heat. I prefer a griddle because I can make several sandwiches at once. Spread butter or margarine on one side of each piece of bread.


Spread peanut butter onto slice of cheese.


Make sandwich and lay it in the skillet. Flip when browned to your liking on one side. Cook until browned to perfection! Remove from skillet and slice.


It’s heavenly comfort food at its best!

Try it and let me know what you think! :)
