Nowadays, I either bake them in the oven or fry them in a non-stick pan sprayed with Pam. I still get 95% of the yummy taste, but I save soooooo many calories!

How do I make up for the slight loss in flavor?


I add a delicious topping, spread or garnish for additional flavor.

Here are 18 yummy grilled cheese ideas to perk up your appetite.  Enjoy each variation on it’s own, or try combining a few for extra taste.

  1. Drained sauerkraut
  2. Tomato slices and pesto
  3. Fresh herbs
  4. Sauteed onions
  5. Salsa and chopped scallions
  6. Cheese, tomato, thin onion slices, sprinkle of oregano and imitation bacon
  7. Just a sprinkle of sesame seeds
  8. Tomato slices and fresh basil leaves
  9. Onion, tomato and thinly sliced jalapeno pepper
  10. Cheese, imitation bacon and tomato on rye
  11. Sauteed garlic and grilled onions
