Hawaiian Grilled Cheese
1 teaspoon butter
1 Hawaiian sweet roll or 2 sourdough slices
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
3 pineapple rings
4-5 deli ham slices
1 tablespoon chopped green onion

Spread half of the butter on a piece of bread or bun and place it butter side down. Assemble the sandwich with the remaining ingredients, starting and ending with the cheese. Top with the remaining piece of bread and spread the remaining butter over the top. Cook over medium heat on both sides until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Roast Beef Grilled Cheese

2 focaccia slices
1 tablespoon steak sauce
4 provolone slices
4-5 roast beef slices
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup arugula
1/8 red onion, thinly sliced

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook until the mushrooms begin to brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

Spread half of the butter on a piece of bread and place it butter side down. Assemble the sandwich with the remaining ingredients. Top with the remaining piece of bread and spread the remaining butter over the top. Cook over medium heat on both sides until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Green Goddess Grilled Cheese
1/4 cup goat cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 garlic clove, grated
1 teaspoon butter
2 pumpernickel slices

In a small bowl, mix together the goat cheese, cheddar, herbs and garlic. Spread the cheese and herb mixture over a piece of bread and sandwich it together with another piece. Spread butter on the outside of the bread on both sides. Cook over medium heat on both sides until the bread is crisp and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Fully Loaded Grilled Cheese
1/2 cup diced cream cheese
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 teaspoon chopped chives
1 teaspoon butter
2 crusty French bread slices
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices cooked bacon
1/4 cup crinkle cut chips

In a small bowl, cream together the cream cheese, sour cream and chives. Set it aside.

Spread half of the butter on a piece of bread and place it butter side down. Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture over the bread. Top with half of the cheddar, bacon, chips and the remaining cheddar. Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture over the remaining bread slice and sandwich everything together. Spread the remaining butter over the bread. Cook over medium heat on both sides until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Cheeseburger Grilled Cheese
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 hamburger bun bottoms
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 pickle slices
2 tomato slices

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the ground beef. Cook, stirring, until it is no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onion and continue to cook until the onion softens, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the beef with the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and mustard. Remove the beef mixture from the pan and set aside. Use a half of a cup of the beef mixture per grilled cheese.

Carefully wipe the skillet clean and assemble your grilled cheese. Spread the butter on one side of each bun. Fill the bun with all of the fillings, starting and ending with the cheese. Cook over medium heat, on both sides until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
