Three Unique Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Customers Will Love


When you run a sandwich shop like Flancers, it's important to change up your options and offer your customers new choices. But coming up with new sandwich ideas is tough! Consider featuring a different grilled cheese sandwich each week. Customers will enjoy trying different combinations of gooey cheese, crispy bread, and various fillings. Here are three recipes to get you started.

Apple and Swiss

The tartness of apples pairs perfectly with the pungent flavor of Swiss cheese. This is a great sandwich to offer in the fall when apples are in season. For one sandwich, you'll need the following:

  • 2 slices crusty white bread
  • 4 deli slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 of an apple, sliced thinly (tart varieties like Granny Smith and Cortland taste best)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard

Spread the mustard on the "insides" of the bread and the butter on the "outsides." Place half of the Swiss on the sandwich, followed by the apples and then the other half of the Swiss. Pan fry over medium heat until the first side is brown. Then, flip the sandwich and cook gently to brown the other side.

Mock French Dip

The French Dip is a sandwich made with roast beef and dipped into meat juices. This grilled cheese recipe will remind you of a French dip, but cheesier. 

  • 2 slices of deli cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices of deli muenster cheese
  • 3 - 4 thin slices of roast beef
  • 2 pieces of sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish spread
  • Beef broth for dipping (optional)

Spread the butter on the outside of the bread, and spread the horseradish on the inside of one slice of bread. Layer on the meat and cheese, ensuring there is cheese on each side and meat in the middle. Pan fry until brown and crispy on both sides.

If you desire, you can heat canned beef broth and serve a cup of it with this sandwich for dipping.

Three Piggies

With bacon, sausage, and ham, this grilled cheese sandwich is super-filling and sure to be popular among the meat lovers. 

  • 2 slices crusty white bread
  • 2 slices of crispy bacon
  • 2 tablespoons cooked and crumbled sausage
  • 2 slices deli ham
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Butter the outsides of the bread, and layer the other ingredients between the two slices of bread. Make sure there is cheese closest to the bread on the top and bottom of the sandwich. Pan fry the sandwich until golden brown and crispy on both sides.

Choosing A Better Menu For Your Restaurant

When it comes to running a restaurant, it isn't easy to do everything right. When I opened my first place, I decided to fill the menu with family favorites. Unfortunately, my selections fell flat when our place actually opened, which caused a lot of financial trouble. However, after years of trying different foods and testing them out with the public, I have been able to tailor our menu for our customer base. This website is designed to help you to do the same thing. Check out these articles that can help you to learn more about ingredients, food safety, and menu selections.
