Grilled Cheese in a Pan Recipe

My cousin served this dish at a shower years ago, and my daughter and I immediately asked for the recipe. If you don't have the exact cheeses it calls for, you can switch a couple and it still tastes absolutely delicious.—Mary Ann Wendt, Ada, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls

"I loved this recipe. I used shredded pepperjack, mozzarella, cheddar, and muenster cheese, along with just a little bit of cream cheese, and it turned out great! I also used two eggs instead of just one, and reduced fat crescent rolls. I highly recommend this recipe. It's pretty easy to assemble, too."

"This was quite expensive for being just OK. If I make it again, which I probably won't, I will just put a thin layer of cream cheese on the bottom layer of rolls. All we could taste was the cream cheese, which was a shame considering all the other cheeses it had in it."

"I am in LOVE with this recipe! It tasted better than any grilled cheese sandwich I have ever eaten. I was looking to use up some leftover cheese in my fridge, so I didn't exactly follow the recipe (I used some swiss, cheddar, and half a block of cream cheese) but is still turned out delicious!! Since I liked it so well this way, I will probably not use the full amount of cheese the next time I make it. I will also have to put off making this when I am alone, because I would probably eat the whole thing by myself... :)"
