Now I know that most people know how to make a simple grilled cheese sandwich. But what about a Double Grilled Cheese or what I like to call a Double Decker Grilled Cheese? And did you know that experts say the proper way to make a great grilled cheese is with Mayonnaise? That’s right! So in this video we are grilling up a double decker with not 1, not 2 but 4 pieces of cheese, 3 pieces of Texas toast, Mayonnaise and a special seasoned butter blend I make myself.
This Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich is FUN! It’s not as exciting, maybe, as a Panini but it’s not as boring as the original. I like to season my butter and occasionally mix in some veggies with my cheese. But you do what you want and I’ll show you how you should want to make your sandwich.
What to Expect
In this recipe I’m using Texas Toast for the bread, Mild Cheddar and Provolone Cheese and Marinated and seasoned dried Cherry Tomatoes. I think you’ll find that that these simple ingredients will really set the average grilled cheese on an entirely new level. The only problem is these tomatoes are a little spendy. But, in the very near future I’m going to show you how you can make these very easily right in your own kitchen. And it’s perfect timing for me because my garden is in full bloom right now. So I’ll get that going probably this next week.

I said, a Grilled Cheese sandwich with an Egg in the Basket. It’s not that complicated is it? It’s two of my favorite comfort foods molded into one delicious sandwich, and it’s got Brunch written all over it! I suppose there are probably recipes for each of these all over the web these days because they’re both really popular items and they’re both very easy to prepare, but can you do both at the same time in the same recipe? You’ll be able to after you watch this little step by step tutorial, I promise you. Especially once you realize that this Brunch sandwich is smothered with a sausage country gravy!
Grilled Cheese with an Egg in a Basket Ingredients:
2 pieces of Bread
2 tbsp Butter
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
Butter only one peice of bread. Cookie cut the other for the egg in a basket. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a hot pan over medium and place the cookie cut slice in the pan, then crack one egg in the middle and add salt and pepper. After one minute, flip the bread over to the other side, using a spatula, and cover the top with cheese immediately. Then place the other piece of bread on top and wait 1 minute to flip the whole sandwich over, to cook the other side. Once you’ve flipped the Grilled Cheese Sandwich over, the Egg in a Basket side will be facing up. Cook for another minute then plate. I like to serve my Grilled Cheese with an Egg in a Basket, with sausage or country gravy!
