Three-Cheese Grilled Cheese Recipe

I once taught an adult program called Eating Smart for Seniors. For that class, I developed many recipes for one or two people that were simple to prepare and used common ingredients.—Terri Brown, Darien, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:1 servings


  • 2 slices wheat, rye or sourdough bread

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 slices white cheese (brick, Monterey Jack or Swiss)
  • 2 slices yellow cheese (cheddar, pepper or taco)
  • 1 red onion slice

  • 1. Spread cream cheese on one side of both slices of bread; spread butter on the other side. On cream cheese side of one slice, layer white cheese, yellow cheese, onion and tomato. Top with remaining slice of bread, cream cheese side down.
