What Kind of Cheese Should I Use?

Our favorite for this particular grilled cheese is straight up cheddar. However, if you love a good kick of spice, pepper jack cheese has great flavor that goes with the pickles.

Besides that, you could add two kinds of cheese. Make this delicious sandwich however you like best!

Can I Make Grilled Cheese In The Oven?

You totally can, but since this one is loaded with ingredients, make sure it doesn’t run over the pan.
