This Instant’s Best Grilled Cheese

blog week...something

Quite the title, I know. This was part of my dinner on Wednesday… minus the cream cheese, because there apparently isn’t any in the house. Thus, the pictures are also lacking in cream cheese. Darn. But I promise, this is the best way I’ve found yet to enjoy a nice grilled cheese. This would be grand with cheddar, too.

And yes, you need to use sourdough bread.  Don’t ask questions, just enjoy this lovely combination of cheese and sourdough.

This Instant’s Best Grilled Cheese


1 blob of cream cheese (about a 1/2 oz)

1 dash granulated garlic

1 dash oregano

1 pinch black pepper

1 small pinch salt

1 slice muenster cheese

2 slices sourdough bread

Butter, for greasing


Heat up a panini press or a frying pan.  Mix the spices, including the salt, with the cream cheese.  Spread the cream cheese mixture on one slice of bread.  Top with the slice of muenster and the other slice of bread.  Butter the outsides of the bread and place in the panini press/frying pan.  If it is in a pan, put a plate on top of the sandwich and add some weight on top of the plate (such as a can from the pantry).  Cook until cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.



  1. We were so excited to try these out on Friday we totally forgot about the seasonings- even without the garlic and oregano etc. they were still delicious! The whole family enjoyed this fresh new take on a classic favorite!
