Garlic Butter Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Many of your first experiences with Chef Shamy Gourmet were probably at our roadshows at Sam’s Club or Costco or possibly at a grocery store. If you discovered our garlic butter at one of these roadshows then chances are you were able to experience the best grilled cheese sandwich you’ve ever tasted!

Best Grilled Cheese You’ve Ever Tasted

Here’s the ultimate ingredients for making the best grilled cheese sandwich you’ve ever tasted:

  1. Chef Shamy Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter
  2. Tillamook Cheddar Cheese
  3. Dave’s Killer Bread (or Udi’s Bread for our gluten-free folk)

That’s it! If you want those great grill marks, then cook it in a cast iron griddle. I’ve put the recipe below if you’d like to print it out. Also, it is widely known that grilled cheese sandwiches are best with tomato soup. I haven’t done a tomato soup yet, but my friends over at Pinch of Yum have a delicious recipe.
