Grilled Cheese with Chipotle

Posted on 12 April 2018

Celebrate Grilled Cheese Day properly with a spicy grilled ham and cheese! We used the old diner trick of spreading mayonnaise on our grilled cheese for a deliciously crisp and golden exterior, but we didn't stop there. Chipotle Extract adds a subtle smoky flavor and a little bit of heat to our mayo. Makes 1 sandwich.


  • 2 slices French or Sourdough bread
  • unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 slices deli ham
  • 4 slices gruyere cheese


  1. In a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and Chipotle Extract.
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly butter one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Spread Chipotle Mayonnaise over the butter.
  4. Lay 2 slices of ham over the Chipotle Mayonnaise.
  5. Top with all the gruyere and remaining 2 slices of ham.
  6. Place the other slice of bread on top and butter the outside of the sandwich.
  7. Heat the sandwich in an oven-proof sauté pan and cook for 5-7 minutes until golden.
  8. If the cheese has not melted, place the entire pan in the 350°F oven and bake for 2 minutes. Flip the sandwich and bake another 2 minutes.
  • If you're feeding a crowd, scale up the Grilled Cheese ingredients as needed.
  • This recipe makes ¼ cup Chipotle Mayonnaise, enough for several sandwiches.
