Peace. Love. Ranch.

Kicked-Up Ranch Grilled Cheese

One bite and you’ll never make a grilled cheese any other way. It’s the zesty Hidden Valley® Ranch butter turning golden brown. It’s thinly sliced tomatoes with warm, melty Monterey Jack. Oh yes, this is how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. This simple HVR recipe makes perfect, savory sense.

  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Cook Time 8 min
  • Servings 4

Ingredients (5)

  • white, wheat or sourdough bread 8 slices
  • Seasoned Ranch Butter ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons
  • cheddar cheese 4 slices
  • Monterey Jack cheese 4 slices
  • tomato, optional 8 thin slices
For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (3)

  1. 1

    Lay the bread out on a work surface. Butter one side of each slice of bread.

    Note: If you don't want to make the ranch butter recipe, simply spread each slice of bread with 2 teaspoons softened butter and sprinkle with ranch seasoning shaker.

  2. 2

    Heat a griddle, pan or grill pan over medium heat. Place the bread butter-side down in the pan. Top each piece of bread with one slice of each cheese and the tomatoes, if using.

  3. 3

    Cover with the remaining bread, butter-side up. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, until the bread is brown and toasty and the cheese is melted.  Serve hot.
