Glorious Grilled Cheese

Yield: 4 servings - 45-50g protein/sandwich.


  • 8 Slices of our plain or seeded Equii breads.
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter at room temperature.
  • 1 Tablespoon of French mustard to taste.
  • 14 Ounces of any combination of your favor grated or sliced cheeses (We love the sharp cheddar, Gruyère or Comté, and a red rind or soft, creamy, surface-ripened goat cheese combination)
  • Jalapeño pepper to taste.
  • Maldon, or flaky sea salt to taste.


  1. Spread a very small amount of butter on one side of the Equii bread slices.
  2. Toast the butter side in a skillet on low heat until light golden-brown.
  3. Place the bread slices, golden brown sides up, on your work surface and lightly spread with French mustard.
  4. Divide your choice of cheeses, and a few thinly sliced jalapeno pieces on top of half of the bread slices.
  5. Sandwich with the remaining slices.
  6. Spread a very small amount of butter on both sides of the cheese sandwiches and lightly season with salt.
  7. Wrap and refrigerate the sandwiches until needed.
  8. Place your cheese sandwich in a skillet over medium heat, cover and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  9. Keep flipping and pushing down until cheese is melted.
  10. Once the cheese is melted, remove from the skillet, and serve.

Alternative serving options:

  • Finely sliced red onion and tomatoes.

  • We like our grilled cheese sandwich served with sides of pickled vegetables or gherkins.
