Dill Pickle Grilled Cheese

Ingredients (makes 1 sandwich, expand recipe as needed)

  • Bread – 2 slices, classic white sandwich bread
  • Butter – 1 tablespoon, unsalted, at room temperature
  • Colby Jack Cheese – 2 ounces, freshly grated
  • Dill Pickle Chips – ½ cup, drained
  • Sea Salt – ⅛ teaspoon
  • Black Pepper – ⅛ teaspoon, freshly cracked


  • Heat a panini press or a medium skillet over medium heat.  Place the bread on a cutting board and lightly brush the top of each slice with butter (don’t forget the corners!). Turn the slices over and pile one slice with ½ of the cheese, dill pickle chips, the remaining ½ of the cheese, salt and pepper.  Place the remaining slice of bread on top of the cheese and pickles, buttered side up.
  • Cook the sandwich on the panini press or in the pan for about 5 minutes total, flipping once if using a skillet, until nicely browned on the outside and melty and gooey on the inside.  Transfer the sandwich to the cutting board and let rest for 1 minute.  Serve hot!
