Potato Chip Grilled Cheese

Posted in Lunch, Recipes


  • 2 Tbsp. butter, cut into three even pieces
  • 2 slices hearty white bread
  • 2 slices American, Cheddar, or Jack Cheese
  • 1 big handful potato chips
  • Kosher Salt


Melt 1/3 of butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat until foaming subsides.  Add both bread slices and cook, until pale golden brown on bottom side, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board toasted-side-up. Place cheese slices on top of one slice, add potato chips pressing down to break them gently, then close sandwich, with both toasted sides facing inwards.  Melt one more piece of butter in the skillet and reduce heat to medium low.  Add sandwich and cook, until  golden brown, about 5 minutes.  Remove sandwich. Add the remaining butter.  Return sandwich to skillet cooked-side-up. Season with salt.  Cook, until second side is golden brown and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
