1. Tomatoes


When I was a kid, we used to dip our grilled cheese sandwiches in ketchup, so it makes sense that tomato slices would taste good inside.

In fact, this is one of my absolute favorite things to put in a grilled cheese sandwich.

You’ll need a couple of thick slices to really get the full flavor potential.

Sprinkle them with salt and freshly ground black pepper before sticking them in the sandwich for even more flavor.

2. Bacon


As you know, bacon makes anything better.

Adding bacon to your grilled cheese sandwich adds loads of flavor and just the right amount of crunch.

Cook the bacon slices before you put them in the sandwich because they won’t cook inside the bread.

Add the cooked bacon on top of the cheese and grill the sandwich as usual.

Bacon also pairs well with a variety of veggies so try both.

3. Onions


You might wonder how a cheese and onion sandwich can taste that good, but it really does.

When I was in college I worked in a bar and the cook would make grilled cheese and onion sandwiches for us after we closed.

They were so flavorful and tasty.

Of course, bacon and onion makes the sandwich even better.

Try it – you’ll see just what I mean.
