Cream Cheese Grilled Cheese

Happy Wednesday blogging peeps! Today I am going to share my recipe for cream cheese grilled cheese. 

While I was trying to photograph my recipe in the making, my son Atticus asked me to take his picture with all his 'creatures' (I guess that's boy-speak for stuffed animals lol).

Okay, back to my sammich.

Alas, I realized that I was out of the sharp Cheddar cheese slices that I usually like to use (mixed with smoked Gouda is the best!) so I decided to improvise and see how it came out. I used generic white bread, Mexican-Style shredded cheese, butter, and chive and onion cream cheese. 

Simply spread butter on one side of the bread and place in a pan over medium heat. Butter burns pretty fast so don't have your heat up too high.

Grilled cheese is creamy as-is but add chive and onion cream cheese and you instantly have a sandwich that makes this run-of-the-mill lunch decadent and delicious. 

Spread the cream cheese on only one side of the bread.

With basic ingredients, this cream cheese grilled cheese is absolutely delicious. Use some good french bread and better cheese and it's even better. With a 3 year old who wants to eat grilled cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it is nice to have a more grown-up version for me to eat.

Bon Appétit!


  1. I never met a grilled cheese I didn't like. Any way you can add chocolate to it? Love Atticus and his creatures.

    1. What about Nutella? That would make a good grilled cheese...hmmm, the wheels are a-turnin'!

  2. Oh yeah! I never thought of making grilled cheese with cream cheese but that's a great idea!
