Sheet Pan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Instead of standing over a hot pan and patiently flipping grilled cheese after grilled cheese, make five toasty, gooey grilled cheese sandwiches at one time on a sheet pan!

This simple sheet pan technique allows you to make five grilled cheese sandwiches at the same time—meaning everyone around the table gets an equally gooey and warm sandwich at the same time—with barely more effort than it takes to prep one.

We went with four types of cheese—goat, white cheddar, provolone, and Swiss—for these buttery, rich sheet pan grilled cheese sandwiches, but feel free to change the cheeses up depending on what you like or what you have in your fridge.

You could also dress these up with a few added toppings, like spinach, basil leaves, and tomato slices—or allow folks to customize their own sandwich. Your grilled cheese, your choice.

Sheet Pan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 5 servings
Yield 5 grilled cheese sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons herbed goat cheese

  • 10 thick white bread slices

  • 5 sharp white cheddar cheese slices

  • 5 provolone cheese slices

  • 5 Swiss cheese slices

Method

  1. Preheat the oven and prepare a baking sheet:

    Preheat the oven to 425°F with a rack in the upper third of the oven. Place the butter on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the preheated oven until the butter melts, about 5 minutes.

  2. Assemble the sandwiches and bake:

    Spread goat cheese evenly on 5 of the bread slices.

    Carefully tilt the pan so the melted butter coats the bottom. Arrange all of the bread slices in a single layer in the melted butter on the baking sheet. Ensure the goat cheese is facing up.

    Place 1 cheddar slice on each bread slice with goat cheese and place 1 slice each of provolone and 1 slice of Swiss on each plain bread slice.

  4. Assemble sandwiches and return to the oven:

    Remove from the oven and assemble the sandwiches by combining each of the goat cheese slices with the provolone and Swiss slices. Return to oven and bake until bread is golden and toasted, 3 to 4 minutes.
