Know that crunchy, buttery, cheesy goodness of a warm grilled cheese?  Well, this is a grilled cheese, burger, and loads of toppings combined to make your mouth water.

Remember when mama would make you a grilled cheese sandwich, with the cheap government cheese? That stuff melts perfect. Now you’re a big kid, and forced to make your own grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s time to kick them up a notch and use those mature and aging taste buds while they are at their prime. Grab some fixings, because this grilled cheese just got intense.

PS. I’d grab a roll of paper towels while you’re at it.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try a grilled cheese burger. 🙂 For some reason I have always loved that fakey cheese. I can’t really eat it though so I am really bummed. I’ll have to make this with grown-up cheese!

  2. There’s a super-awesome burger place here in Toronto that has a grilled cheese burger on their secret menu… I just can’t bring myself to order one, though, mostly because I’m scared that it will ruin me for all other burgers for the rest of all eternity. It’s good to know that if I do cave in, I’ll be able to make it at home and save myself the hassle of going outside. 🙂

  3. Whoa, I could plow into this amazing sandwich! That gooey cheese and juicy burger make an irresistible combo.

  4. Can I come live with you for awhile. I just want to learn how to take pictures like you!

  5. I have everything I need to make this, it’s dinner time and I’m drooling. Guess what that means.

  6. Holy mother of grilled cheese, come to mama. II need this in my life. I’m just sitting here trying to decide what I want to it. Score, found it.

    Your freaking photos just slay me every time I visit Kita. You have so much talent. I cannot master the moody shot and I love those types of photos. Fabulous.

  7. Ahhhh be still my heart! I have been wanting to make grilled cheese burgers for so long.
