Whatever you call them – jaffles, toasties or melts – grilled sandwiches are a lunchtime staple in any kitchen.
But hooley dooley, did you know there’s a stack of delicious ‘n crazy grilled sambo combos being created out there?! Come, be inspired with the best of grilled sandwiches.
From the sweet to the savoury, the simple to the sophisticated here’s a round up of our favourite combos. Lunch time is about to get a whole lot more enticing. You’ll never default to plain old cheese again.
First up! Let’s talk bread. Bread choice plays an importance role in how fancy you want to be. Regular sandwich loaf is a great, everyday option but if you want to impress, you should head straight for a sourdough (and those little air pockets fill with cheese, so #winning).
Bread at the ready, grill on, let’s get toasting!
1. Bacon, avocado and cheese grilled sandwich recipe
There’s a mention of ‘turkey bacon’ in Tidy Mom‘s recipe, but I’m 110% sure that regular pork bacon will be just as delicious. It’s salty, it’s creamy and it’s delicious.
2. Mediterranean style grilled sandwich recipe
Almost like a holiday you don’t have to leave the house for. Full of the usual fridge suspects, grab that grated mozzarella and baby spinach and let’s grill with Cooking Classy!
3. Pesto chicken grilled sandwich recipe
Leftover chicken? Just add pesto! Fancy enough for guests, Baking Mischief really is just showing off by using sour-dough bread in these grilled pesto chicken sammies.
4. Funfetti grilled cheese grilled sandwich recipe
Disclaimer – this Salty Canary recipe calls for cake (I know, I know) and cream cheese being grilled. HOWEVER, I don’t see any reason why you can’t give a sweet brioche bread a crack in this instance. Try it both ways, dare you!
5. Hawaiian grilled cheese grilled sandwich recipe
OK, so technically it’s the age-old ham and cheese combo but ramped up to the next level with the addition of pineapple. Frankly, I’m willing to give it a go. Thanks Love Bakes Good Cakes!

7. Cranberry sauce and brie cheese grilled sandwich recipe
Is there anything greater than creamy brie cheese spiked with sweet cranberry sauce oozing out from a golden crust? Throw some turkey in there too for good measure, Heather Christo style. Nom nom nom.
8. Cauliflower grilled cheese grilled sandwich recipe
