As you may or may not have noticed, I’ve been posting quite a few grilled cheese recipes on the site lately. I am planning on putting together free ebook of gluten free grilled cheeses in the near future, since they are delicious and cheap to make and I have a ton of unique ideas for the recipes.
This diner style gluten free grilled cheese recipe is so, so easy to make. You only need three items, as you can see in the first picture below! Basically, the only difference between a regular grilled cheese and diner style is that the latter uses mayonnaise on the bread instead of butter before grilling it. It’s a minor change, but it definitely changes the taste of the sandwich. I love regular grilled cheese, and I really liked this style as well.
The mayo is slightly noticeable in the finished product. If you absolutely hate mayo, you probably won’t find this recipe too appealing. It’s not overpowering by any means, but you WILL be able to taste it. I thought the mayo added a nice change of pace from the normal buttered grilled cheese sandwiches, and I will definitely be making this recipe again.
- 2 slices of gluten free bread
- 2 slices of cheddar or American cheese
- Spread mayo on outside of the bread.
- Add cheese slices in the middle of the bread (mayo on the outside).
- In a skillet over medium heat, add the sandwich and cook for 2-3 minutes, until bottom is a golden brown. (Hint: Covering the skillet with aluminum foil helps melt the cheese faster)
- Flip over and continue cooking for another 2 minutes or so, until cheese is melted and both sides are golden.
- Remove from heat. Cut in half and serve with ketchup. Enjoy!
