The Worlds Best Grilled Cheese Seriously

Updated on January 7, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese

If I Could Marry A Sandwich...

If I could marry a sandwich, then I've got just two words for you: I Do!

I first fell in love with this sandwich last summer, after enduring one of those breakups that make you want to take up kick-boxing. However, instead of kick-boxing, I chose to take up cooking. But, I couldn't cook just anything. No way, José. I was going to find all of the best recipes for the yummiest, gooiest, most delicious grilled cheeses ever created. So after quite a bit of blog browsing and 'Pinterest'ing, I came across a recipe for a grilled cheese with sliced potatoes in it, and I was beyond intrigued.

The first time I made this little piece of heaven, I made only one mistake. That I only made one. (And the last time I made this little piece of heaven, I made only one mistake as well: Forgetting to turn the stovetop fan on while frying potatoes, resulting in my alarm system being set off, and the fire department showing up at my door. Haha. At least I offered to make them sandwiches...) Obviously there are two major lessons to learn from my experiences. First of which is to make sure to open a window or turn your stovetop fan on while frying potatoes. Second, always, always, make more than one.

So this is my version of the best thing to ever happen to a grilled cheese (and to my mouth). I call it "The Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese: A.K.A. The Husband Sandwich". Enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves one person one incredible sandwich.


  • Sourdough Bread
  • Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Sliced
  • Potato, Thinly sliced
  • 2 Strips of Bacon
  • Sour Cream
  • Butter
  • Olive Oil
  1. Slice your extra sharp cheddar cheese and your potato. I slice enough of both to cover one slice of bread.
  2. Distribute olive oil into frying pan on high heat and add sliced potatoes. (While potatoes are frying, I microwave my pre-cooked bacon, though you may cook your own bacon if you please.)
  3. Place fried potatoes on paper towel and dab gently with another paper towel to remove any excess oil.
  4. Spread sour cream on inside of both slices of bread. Add cheddar, potatoes, and bacon.
  5. Assemble sandwich. Spread Butter on outsides of sandwich.
  6. Grill. Flip. Grill. Enjoy!
The grub. In all its glory.

      I've had the Tillamook extra sharp cheddar on homemade bacon, egg, & cheese mcmuffins before. You're right, it's delicious. And it's one of my favorites!

      Wow thanks for supporting my comfort food addiction folks! Such kind words!

      --I never thought about using pre-shredded cheese, I will have to try that next time! Only hopefully next time I make this sandwich I can avoid my run in with the fire department...

      (: Happy eating guys!

      Potato? Well, I am game. I also use different kinds of cheese. Also, try using the already shredded cheese...Tillamook extra sharp is esp. good (since I see you like sharp too!)

      Good hub and voted up!!

      A potato! Really! That's different. You've made one comfort food a little more comforting. Enjoyed your lively intro & am going to try your recipe! Shared and voted up. --Jill
