Grilled Cheese De Mayo

Grilled Cheese De Mayo


"This is a nice change from your usual grilled cheese. It's made with mayo on the outside in place of butter and pepperjack cheese. It's a grilled cheese with a kick. Feel free to use your favorite cheese combination. To make it kid friendly leave out the pepperjack cheese."

  1. Spread 1/2 the mayonnaise onto one side of a slice of bread and place, mayonnaise-side down, in a skillet. Place American cheese and pepperjack cheese on top of the bread. Spread remaining mayonnaise onto one side of the remaining bread and place, mayonnaise-side up, on top of the cheese.
  2. Cook sandwich in the skillet over medium heat until cheese melts and the bread is golden brown, about 2 1/2 minutes per side.

You don't taste the mayo. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
