Epic Grilled Cheese: SRC


I totally just made a grilled cheese for Secret Recipe Club.

I know!  It seems so lame!  But this sandwich is so amazing!

This month, I was assigned Jennifer’s blog, Jenny’s Cookbook.  Jennifer is a Mommy of two (but girls as opposed to my boys) and a self professed cheeseaholic and chocoholic – sound like my kind of girl!

Jennifer has so many fabulous recipes on her blog, including these crispy baked fries that I also made!

Click here for that recipe.

But onto that life altering grilled cheese…

I make a lot of grilled sandwiches and I have never once thought to sprinkle garlic onto the outside.  Yeah, it’s like garlic toast grilled cheese.  It’s amazing! 

I loved this twist on a classic so much that I actually made it twice this week – once with avocado added in and once without.  It was absolutely fabulous both ways!

I don’t think I’ll ever make a plain grilled cheese again!

Thank you, Jennifer, for revolutionizing my grilled cheese!

Epic Grilled Cheese
Recipe from Jenny’s Cookbook

2 slices of whole wheat bread
1 slice provolone cheese
1 slice cheddar cheese
½ avocado (optional)
Butter or margarine
Dash of garlic powder

Heat a skillet over medium heat.

Spread one side of each piece of bread with butter and sprinkle with garlic power.

Places the cheeses and avocado (if using) between the slices of bread.  Toast the sandwich on the hot pan until browned on both sides.  Serve alone or with a hot bowl of tomato soup!


  1. Oh wow! I love grilled cheese, I love avocado...I would be in heaven having this for lunch...and the fries, a great bonus! Pinning...thanks for the great SRC selection!

  2. I love finding a new way of making an old classic that completely alters the recipe. Great choice.

  3. Hi Amy,
    There is nothing better than a really good Grilled Cheese with a bowl of soup on a cold day like we have today. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

  4. YUM! Sometimes the most simple recipes are the ones we forget about making. Great SRC choice!

  5. My daughter once tried a grilled cheese in Sams Club that was made with garlic butter. Now she always asks for garlic grilled cheese.

  6. Grilled Cheese is my favorite sandwich. Perfect with a bowl of tomato soup.

  7. I want that grilled cheese with the avocado inside. With a side of those fries, please. Pretty please. YUM YUM YUM!!! Awesome, awesome, AWESOME choice(s) :)

  8. This definitely sounds like an epic grilled cheese, thanks for sharing!

  9. I've never thought of adding garlic either but going to give that a go the next time, looks and sound wonderful.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my group 'A' SRC entry Loaded Potato Soup.


  10. Grilled Cheese with garlic, what's not to like? And I'm heading down to the kitchen to try this idea out right now.

  11. This grilled cheese looks phenominal! I've tried Avocado on just about everything except a good ole grilled cheesy... can't wait to do that! I haven't perfected the GC yet and will have to try this one out VERY soon. Loving your blog too! <3 Beth (stopping by from SRC Group A!)

  12. Sounds yummy! I will have to try it!

  13. Visiting from thisgalcooks.com, this looks so yummy. I never thought of garlic powder! Thanks for sharing!!


  14. The avocado sounds like a great add-on to your usual grilled cheese. :)
