1. Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese (via Kirbie’s Cravings)

Sometimes the simplest of ideas can make for some amazing results. Who would’ve thought that using pizza ingredients for a grilled cheese sandwich would turn into an epic meal, right? Layer marinara sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni between slices of buttered French bread for a sandwich worth remembering. You can also add other favorite pizza toppings like sausage, pineapple, and olives…though maybe not all in the same sandwich! Leave us a comment and tell us what you’d add to your pizza grilled cheese!

2. Breakfast Tater Tot Grilled Cheese (via Tip Hero)

Maybe you’ve always thought of a grilled cheese sandwich as a lunch or dinner staple. Break the rules and make one for breakfast! This recipe takes it up a notch by using tater tots instead of bread, and it’s all made in a waffle iron. Add in bacon or sausage to your cheese and bread and you’ve got an irresistible grilled cheese that’ll start the whole family’s day with a smile.

3. Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese (via Greens & Chocolate)

When your kiddo (or your stomach) is demanding chicken wings but you don’t want to bother with the mess, try a buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich. Combine shredded chicken with buffalo sauce, top with cheddar cheese, and put it all between two slices of buttered bread. Cook on the stove until golden brown and dip in ranch or blue cheese for extra flavor!
