Sometimes simple is best. Actually around here simple is pretty much always in season, no matter what time of year.

Do you own a cast iron skillet? I hope the answer is yes. If not, you kinda need one like now. Cast Iron Skillet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches have become my go-to meal.

Those of you who know me well, know that I love a hot & melty grilled cheese sandwich.

Especially after a hike…

So why cast iron skillet you might ask?

The secret to the best grilled cheese is having a super hot surface that conducts heat really well.

That’s exactly what a cast iron skillet does. It’s a thick, heavy, inexpensive pan that is indispensable in the kitchen. It’s a work horse whose benefits are worth the little bit of extra loving you need to give it.

A cast iron skillet will last a lifetime if you season it properly & give it a little TLC. Here are a few posts to help you with that.

Have fun with your cheese selections. In these sandwiches I used Asiago with rosemary & medium cheddar slices.

Using pre-sliced cheese is very easy & a time saver, but most of the higher quality cheeses are obviously in wedges, rounds & blocks. If hand trimming then be sure to cut each slice no thicker than 1/4 inch ~ so it melts quickly & completely.

Enjoy 1/2 a sandwich for a mini-meal & a full one for lunch or dinner.

No matter how you slice it…..you will no doubt love this crispy, buttery & gooey cheesy sandwich.

  1. Marla I am loving this post! First of all, a good grilled cheese isn’t as easy as you’d think to make…too pale, too burnt, not gooey enough, etc. but when it’s right, it’s amazing. And yours is…amazing! Pinned! :)

  2. While I like your blog, its Very difficult to read on the go. The pop ups and banners take up most of the screen on my phone and tablet. On the computer its fine, but not always by my computer. Right now “airwick” and “blog her” are competing for the top of my screen and ” staples” and “AT&T” for the bottom. Add in 2 pop ups and I have been able to read very little before becoming frustrated. Is this happening to anyone else or is it just my service?
    BTW love grilled cheese, never thought to use my cast iron pan. Will have to try soon !

    • Thank you for letting me know this Julie & your thoughts are noted. It’s a fine balance to be able to provide excellent content & at the same time earn a living for all of my efforts. My wish is for one day to have a much “cleaner” space without the pop ups. In the mean time I really hope you enjoy your grilled cheese!

  3. Your grilled cheese sandwich looks yummy! I always use a regular skillet to make grilled cheese sandwiches. I will try to use a cast iron skillet to make grilled cheese with it. I bet it will come out delicious.
