You haven't truly experienced all of the incredible things that a good grilled cheese recipe has to offer until you’ve tried this one.

Use 1, 2, or even 3 different types of cheese for a uniquely different experience every single time you make one.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Calories: 600

Servings: 1 grilled cheese sandwich


  • 1 tablespoon cannabutter
  • 2 bread slices
  • ¼ cup grated cheese
  • Cheese slices (enough to fill between the bread pieces)


  • Saucepan
  • Spatula


  1. To start, you’ll need a hot pan, so set the burner to medium heat and wait a few moments for the saucepan to be heated before proceeding.

  • Next, drop approximately ¼ of a tablespoon of cannabutter into the saucepan.

  • Once the cannabutter melts, use to butter both pieces of bread (each with ¼ tablespoon of cannabutter) and place one slice in the saucepan and cover it with cheese just as you would when making a normal grilled cheese sandwich then top with the other slice.

  • fry the grilled cheese sandwich until the bread is golden brown, which should take between 3-5 minutes per side.

  • Once both sides are browned, flip the grilled cheese to expose the hottest part of the sandwich and then scatter half of the grated cheese on top of the bread.

  • Now is a good time to toss the remaining cannabutter into the pan to keep things from sticking, and then flip the grilled cheese sandwich covered in cheese into the freshly melted cannabutter.

  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese across the bread once more and give the bottom layer 1 to 2 minutes to brown before flipping the whole sandwich, to fry the other side.

  • The remaining side will take an additional 3 minutes to brown, and once it has, it is ready to serve and enjoy.
