A grilled cheese is one of those sandwiches that everyone simply must know how to make. There’s just something about that buttery grilled bread encasing melty cheese. Well, today I am gonna show you how to up your grilled cheese game with a Hawaiian grilled cheese.
This version includes the addition of ham and pineapple just like you would find on a Hawaiian pizza. I am also gonna help you elevate that sandwich by adding in some herbs to the butter before you spread it on that bread.
Now the cheese really is the key ingredient to any grilled cheese sandwich so it is very important that you use a good cheese. A good cheese will melt perfectly and I am proud to use Cache Valley Cheese, inspired by the goodness of Cache Valley right here in my great state of Utah.

I reached for Havarti when making this sandwich. It melts really well and has a nice creamy buttery flavor, but really you could use whatever version of cheese you want in this sandwich. Swiss would also be delicious option.
