Grilled Cheese with Velveeta & refined white bread and tomato jam

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 Tbsp butter organic if possible
  • 3 oz Velveeta cheese sliced
  • 1 Tbsp tomato jam
  • 1 slice deli ham

Grilled Cheese with Gouda & bakery grain bread and tomato jam

  • 2 slices sunflower seed whole grain bread
  • 2 Tbsp butter organic if possible
  • 3 oz gouda sliced
  • 1 Tbsp tomato jam
  • 1 slice deli ham


  • Lay the bread out in mirror images, so that the filling will be between the non-buttered sides and the buttered sides will be on the outside of the sandwich
  • Generously butter the outside pieces of the bread, crust to crust. Turn one of the pieces of the bread over (butter side down on the counter or board) and lay the cheese slices on top. Then lay the slice of ham on top of the cheese and cover the ham with some tomato jam. Place the other piece of the buttered bread on top (buttered side up)
  • Repeat the process for the next sandwich
  • Place the sandwiches on a skillet (butter side down) with the heat on medium. Cook for about 3 min or until the bread is lightly browned. You can pick it up gently with a spatula and look underneath to see if it is browned enough. When it is browned to your liking, flip the sandwich over with a spatula and brown the other side.
  • Remove from the skillet, cut in half and enjoy and compare. Leave a omment or a photo as to your favorite!
