Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Summer / Fall / Winter / Spring / Coconut Oil / Main Dish / Pan-Fry / Snack / Tieghan / Vegetarian /



The classic grilled cheese sandwich is pure comfort food. Swap out the butter for coconut oil and you’ll still get that crispy, golden crunch into meltiness that we all love so much!


Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
Total time: 13 minutes


Serves: 1


2 slices white or whole wheat bread
2 tablespoons LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil, at room temperature
1 slice yellow American cheese
1 slice white American cheese



Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat.

Spread coconut oil on both sides of each piece of bread. Sandwich the cheese in the middle to complete the sandwich.

Place the sandwich on the griddle and cover with a large metal bowl or skillet top. Allow the sandwiches to become golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cover again, cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the griddle and slice in half.

    I only use coconut oil for my grilled cheese. I also use sourdough white bread and it is amazing! No more trying to spread hard butter. The coconut oil gives a nice flavor and super crispy!

    Me too it seems 1 tbsp is 120 calories and it’s asking for two? Hmmm

    I also would like to see the nutritional values of your recipes. I can’t believe in these times of more nutritional awareness that this factor is not included!

    Looks Great!!! I’ve BEEN USING THIS COCONUT OIL FOR EVERYTHING FOR 7 MONTHS …It is truly miraculous. I can (and do) add lots of THIS fat to almost EVERYTHING and NO weight gain; no high cholesterol; no upset stomach; no side effects at all. If I want butter flavor, I add Butter Buds powder..
