Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Breakfast Grilled Cheese


When I was about ten years old, my best friend’s grandma taught me how to make grilled cheese.  I am sure I had made grilled cheese before then, but she taught me the proper steps.

  • Butter the pan, not the bread.
  • Heat the pan.
  • Completely assemble the sandwich before placing it in the warm pan.
  • Cook two to three minutes, and use the back of a spatula to smash the sandwich.  This is key.  I am not sure why, but it is highly important.
  • Flip the sandwich and smash again.
  • Toss the sandwich onto a plate, and cut it in half.
  • Eat it!


For this sweet breakfast grilled cheese, I used raisin bread, cream cheese, and strawberry jelly instead of American cheese and white bread.  Other than that, I followed the proper steps for making the perfect grilled cheese.



  • 2 slices raisin bread
  • 1 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jelly
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Melt coconut oil in small fry pan over medium heat and spread to coat.
  • Spread cream cheese and jelly on one slice of bread.
  • Top with the other slice of bread and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Eat and enjoy!


P.S. I am linking up with Angie and her cohosts Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook and Diann @ Of Goats and Greens for Fiesta Friday!
