There is no denying it, this is truly the Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich. You see, when we made it, this dish disappeared so fast in our Test Kitchen it barely even had time to cool!

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 10 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat mayonnaise and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Stir in Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and garlic powder; mix well. 
     
  2. Spread each of five bread slices evenly with cheese mixture. Top with remaining bread slices. Spread butter on both sides of the sandwiches. 
     
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook in batches until golden on both sides and the cheese is melted.

This is a grilled cheese DELUXE! I was just saying I would like a grilled ham, cheese, and tomato sandwich because my tomato plants are looking so healthy. I don't have any tomatoes to pick yet, so I'll make these sandwiches in the mean time and make them again in the fall with chili.

I found this recipe YEARS ago. It is a favorite of my kids. I made a pot of soup this past week and was planning on making a pan of cornbread to go with it. My 24 year old son insisted on "special" grilled cheese. If you don't use it all, just put it in the fridge. It keeps well!

Have not made this yet but AM GOING TO! I wouldn't if it could not be saved for later. Found the answer further down. THANKS That's a lot of sandwiches for two people to eat at one time.

This is a Keeper! Great anytime but on cold winter afternoons/evenings this Ultimate ( 3 cheese ) Grilled cheese sandwich tastes fantastic paired with a steaming hot bowl of ( any type ) tomato soup! Or any other soup... Thank you for this ( and countless other ) great recipes! My family loves this recipe, ages range from toddlers to Seniors! this! YUM!

I had to find out what makes this grilled cheese "ultimate." Now I know!

This looks dangerously delicious! I might cut back on the mayo because I'm not a huge fan of it.

This is so yummy, I cut back on the mayo and softened the cream cheese a bit more in the microwave but no to make it melty. Thick sliced sourdough from Panera Bread made this insanely delicious!!

I made these sandwiches with some tomato soup and it was good. But for me it was a little too rich for my liking, I might just cut back on the mayo next time..but overall it does deserve 5 stars!!

I like your suggestion. These look great and I think tomato is a great addition to it I might use soften sun dried tomatoes instead.

Taste awesome when it is hot and gooie...

I bet this would be great on the panini press

I was never fond of grilled cheese, and I had to slather it in peanut butter to make it worth eating. I tried this recipe yesterday, on 12 grain bread, and it is terrific. No peanut butter needed!

Why does an ad come on everytime I download a recipe (this one for the grilled cheese) and covers up part of the recipe. This one says "download a free Greek e-cookbook" This happens quite often and often covers a good portion of the recipe ingredients.

The ads are very annoying but you can avoid some of them by not allowing your cursor to go over any underlined word.

I use a piece of free software called AdBlockPlus that integrates with my browser. It spares me a lot of unwanted ads, pop-ups, and redirects, and you can easily set it to allow those things on sites where you might want them.

I have Norton 360 and I have never even seen any ads when I add a recipe to my recipe box or print a recipe out. But. I do read quite a few people on here complaining about it

There is an X at the top of the ad you can remove it if you don't want to watch it.

I keep the filling ready for when too lazy to cook and fold into tortillas and grill and have a salad with it

If you add a small jar of well drained pimentos to this recipe you end up with food that angels seek. The filling with pimentos makes a pretty good pimento cheese! Super good recipe! The use of sourdough bread adds just the right amount of bright bready flavor!

Does any one know if I can mix up the filling and keep it in the fridge to use as needed? If so, any ideas on how long it would keep?

Yes, you can make this cheese well in advance. Just keep it cold in the fridge. In a closed container it should keep for weeks.

Howard mentioned the "Quick And Easy Comfort Cookbook" on the show today and said the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich was in it. So I looked for that cookbook (even did a search for it) and found nothing. Anyone know where I can get a copy?

You can visit the Mr. Food shop to purchase our Quick and Easy Comfort Cookbook! http://www.mrfoodshop.com/

It is at Amazon.com..... It is "Mr. Food Quick and Easy Comfort Cookbook"

its at the top of the page

Any lunch meat around slide it in, knock it up notch, ant other cheese knock up notch!!!!!

I'm making my grocery list for the week & this will be on it! All I need is the mozz & sour dough bread!

I make triple batches and put it on everything we used to put cheese on, homemade egg muffins, burgers, hot dogs, and whatever else we used to put cheese on.

I have made this sandwich several times. It is delicious. Instead of sourdough bread, I just use my favorite high-grain bread. I leave out the garlic, but I'm sure it's great with it, too.
