How to Make Grilled Cheese in a Conventional Oven
Grilled cheese doesn't have to consist of white bread and American cheese.

Creamy, gooey grilled cheese sandwiches were a childhood staple for many Americans. You can still enjoy the rich, cheesy goodness, but why not try a more updated, adult version? You have many options other than the standard white bread coated with butter and processed American cheese. Use an oven to crisp your bread without the butter. Try a different kind of bread or cheese and include vegetables to make the sandwich more healthy or just to try a new taste. Alternately, make your childhood favorite version for a culinary trip down memory lane.

Step 1

Preheat the broiler.

Step 2

Assemble the sandwich. Place the grated cheese on the bread and add the vegetables and condiments, if you are using them. Place the other piece of bread on top.

Step 3

Place the sandwich on the baking sheet and put it in the oven. Broil for 30 seconds on each side, or until the bread begins to turn golden brown and crispy.

Step 4

Let the sandwich rest for one minute to allow the cheese to solidify a little. Cut the sandwich in half corner-wise and serve immediately.
