A grilled cheese sandwich is a delicious treat anytime. The golden toasted bread with gooey melted cheese inside is simply irresistible! No need to messy up you pans or use the stove, you can make a grilled cheese sandwich right on your Foreman Grill. All you need is some fresh bread, slices of cheese and some margarine or butter or olive oil. You may also enjoy it with a sliced tomato inside or even some bacon. And for a special treat, try adding a dash of onion powder – it will give it a nice rich flavor.

This recipe is for the very basic of basic grilled cheese sandwich. Give it a try. You’ll be making them on the Foreman Grill again and again.


  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 2 slices of your favorite cheese (American is the classic)
  • 1 tbs of margarine

Total time: 8 minPrep time: 5 min – Cook time: 3 min


This is a real easy one. Preheat your Foreman Grill for at least 5 minutes. Use medium-high setting if your grill has temperature settings. Place the cheese between the bread slices and spread the margarine on the outside of each slice in a nice thin layer. Place on the grill, close lid, and check after about 3 minutes. Your sandwich is done when the bread is a beautiful golden brown and the cheese is melting. Enjoy!

    You need to butter the outside of the bread slices – then they will brown

    I am a new owner of a Forman grill and tried to follow this recipe, but I ended up making a very flat sandwich if could call it that…lol. I used both the top and bottom grill portions. What advise do you have for me as my sandwiches did not look anywhere like the one pictured? Thank you

      Use something almost as thick as sandwich to hold lid up so it just touches the top of sandwich with a little pressure.

      Use the griddle for the bottom and the standard grill on the top, cooks great and not squashed.

    Which plate do you use? The deep dish one?

    Larger sandwiches need larger space. Whichever pair of plates that give you the largest space for the sandwich to be sandwiched in between is the one that would probably work the best. Also leave you the least grill marks.

    I tried a George Foreman grill/panini maker for the first time tonight making grilling cheese. I did basically what is on this recipe and at 3 minutes my sandwich was getting burnt around the edges. I also had the common problem as others of it creating flat sandwiches. Not bad but I am thinking maybe a different type of bread would help. Maybe not from what others were saying on here…lol!

    I use Dave’s Killer Bread Good Seed for my grilled cheese sandwiches, it doesn’t seem to get crushed under the weight of the top.

    Use mayonnaise instead of butter on both slices of bread.
    Gives the grilled cheese a better flavor
    Divide the 3 minutes and flip approximately at 1 min 30 sec
    Check for browness.Time could be more or less.
