Pretzel Crusted Grilled Cheese
Yields: 4 sandwiches
  • 8 slices bread (any variety)
  • 1 cup pretzels, crushed
  • 2 eggs
  • 4-8 slices cheese (I like to use cheddar)
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Meanwhile, put eggs in a low bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Put pretzels in another separate low bowl.
  3. Dip one side of a slice of bread in the egg mixture and then dip it in the pretzels. Place pretzel-side down on the preheated skillet and top with cheese. Dip one side of another slice of bread in the egg mixture, and then in the pretzels and then place the not-dipped side on top of the cheese to form the sandwich.
  4. Cook until golden and cheese starts to melt, flip and cook until the other side is golden and cheese is melted.
  5. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make a total of 4 sandwiches.
To bake instead of frying, simply preheat the oven to 400°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Assemble sandwiches as above and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. or until cheese is melted.
