Keyword: dorm room, four cheese, grilled cheese, iron


  • about a 1 square foot of tin foil
  • 2 pats of salted butter
  • 2 slices of hearty whole wheat

For cheese blend - about 4 tbsp worth of cheese

  • 1 tbsp grated Comte
  • 1 tbsp grated Gruyere
  • 1 tbsp grated Ossau Iraty
  • .5 tbsp crumbled Stilton or some yummy blue


  • To begin, Plug in your iron and put it in a safe spot. If it has a steaming option, turn it off and set it to the highest heat setting (which is usually labeled cotton).
  • From here, lay out your tin foil and butter one piece of bread. Then place it so the butters side is facing down. Next, pile on your cheeses and simply place the other slice of bread on top and add some more butter.
  • Now fold up the tin foil around the sandwich. When your iron is piping hot, go ahead and place it on top of the tinfoil and apply some pressure. After about 5 minutes, carefully check to see if the bread is starting to crisp up. It took me about 4-6 minutes for each side.
  • After it's all cooked up, go ahead and gently open up your packet. I think it's best to take out the grilled cheese right away because it gets kind of soggy if it stays all cooped up.


Feel free to use 4 tbsp of any cheese you'd like for this!
