Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled cheese sandwiches are my weakness. I can say no to most pasta, most cakes, most cookies, but put a grilled cheese sandwich in front of me, and it's game over!

These sandwiches are a seriously delicious and easy dinner idea that everyone in the family will enjoy. Perfect for those busy nights when you're juggling soccer practice and play rehearsals, or when you just feel like taking it easy!

Serve with homemade tomato basil soup and a green salad for a total meal, or serve on their own for a super simple yummy option.

I love that when things have Italian in the name, they seem so much fancier. These are a bit fancier than the average grilled cheese, but I promise they're just as easy! Just a few extra ingredients make all the difference, believe me!

This sandwich is made super delicious with the addition of basil, caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes and gooey provolone and parmesan cheeses. You can add some crispy pancetta or ham for some extra protein too!

Makes 4 sandwiches


8 pieces rustic bread
8 slices provolone cheese
4 slices parmesan cheese
12 leaves fresh basil
1 tomato, thinly sliced
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil


Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove onions to a plate.

For the sandwiches: layer the provolone, parmesan, basil, tomato and onion inside the two pieces of bread. Butter the outside of each sandwich. Cook the sandwiches in the same skillet as the onions over medium-low heat until the outsides are toasty brown, and cheese is melted. Serve with tomato basil soup!
