Ever since I went on a Wisconsin cheese tour last summer I’ve made it a point to try a larger variety of the many amazing cheeses that my home state offers. Recently I was at the grocery store and saw that Carr Valley Cheese Company produces something that they refer to as “bread cheese.”
Seeing this cheese really got me thinking. What if I were to make a grilled cheese sandwich that used this cheese in place of bread? A grilled cheese sandwich that was 100% cheese! I had no idea if it would even work, but right on the packaging Carr Valley actually recommends sautéing this cheese in a skillet. Plus, the cheese is already partially baked in an oven — hence the dark brown spots on it — so I figured it would be worth a shot.
I started off by heating up some oil in a pan and cutting the block of bread cheese in half. I added a couple slices of American cheese to the middle of my sandwich and sautéed it for a couple minutes on each side. It turned out way better than I even expected. The bread cheese softened up a bit, but completely kept its shape, while the American cheese melted perfectly in the middle. Long story short, the sandwich was delicious!
Seriously, if I didn’t have a heart attack after eating this 100% cheese grilled cheese sandwich I’m just going to have to assume that I’m invincible. I still made an extra trip to the gym the next day though just in case….
This is the kind of thing my daughter would love & my father-in-law would hate.
OMG! I would totally have to eat this over the weekend. If I ate it during the week there’s no way i’d make it to work the next day…
BEHOLD THE CHEESE.
This is what our forefathers had in mind. God bless the U.S.A.
I bet this would work great using haloumi…
THIS SANDWICH WAS MADE FOR ME!!
A grilled cheese sandwich made of 100% cheese. Because bread is for suckers.
One could do the same thing with a couple slices of halloumi as the “bread” and whatever melty cheese as the center.
Halloumi grills nicely but doesn’t soften so the melted cheese would tend to squirt right out as you bite so that might be problematic though.
We did it people. We’ve eradicated the plague known as bread.
Grilled cheese’s ultimate form.
Thanks a lot, I’m dieting and have a stomach bug…
In the early 80s I had a girlfriend whose 12yo kid loved “grilled cheese.” Grilled Cheese defined as two slices of Wonder Bread with American cheese heated in the microwave. Bleech…
All. Cheese. Grilled. Cheese. I’m at a loss for words.
This is incredible. And now I need grilled cheese. I’ve never heard of “bread cheese” before – what exactly is it and what does it taste like?
This is the grilled cheese sandwich mother lode.
Grilling cheese used as bread for a grilled cheese sandwich! Genius!!!!
It’s also good if you slice it, fry it in a bit of butter, and dip it in syrup. There’s another company that makes bread cheese with jalapeños. You can buy it at Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee (along with fresh curds).
Dietary fat has very little or no effect on blood cholesterol. Eating this won’t give you a heart attack, in fact it’s probably better for you than using bread.
Hmmmmm sandwich …
Grilled cheese, literally.
How can this not be good?
(Please note I did not say “Good for me” because it may not be that at all.)
Anyone know where to get “bread cheese” in KW? I’m craving a heart attack.
Quick calorie estimate of 2640! Nice!
I know this is terrible in every way possible, but YES
“Dip it in your coffee.” Whaaa?
Looks awesome but… American cheese? blargh…
Yeah, it was all I had in my refrigerator at the time so I had to make due, ha ha.
I CANT SHIT JUST LOOKING AT THIS ONE.
Seriously? A breadless grilled cheese sandwich?
This rivals the Scottish delicacy of deep fried mars bars.
This world is an amazing place, for certain.
This is the greatest grilled cheese I’ve ever seen.
GD! I WANT ONE OF THESE!
Dude! This is some seriously cheesy #grilledcheese!
I’m hungry & I want one now!
Don’t forget the all cheese chupaqueso from Webcomic Schlock Mercenary, it’s a cheese burrito with a cheddar wrap.
GAZE UPON THE GLORY OF AMERICA

Looks good, but a 100% cheese sandwich… eating too many of these colon cloggers would be bad news haha
