How To Reheat Grilled Cheese: Enjoy Grilled Cheese Anytime

If you are a grilled cheese aficionado that is looking for a way to enjoy one anytime, you have come to the right place.

This recipe and article will teach you how to reheat grilled cheese in 3 different ways.

Reheating Methods

Have you ever had a grilled cheese sandwich that was cold? No more! Reheat grilled cheese sandwiches any time you want with these three simple tips.

1. Microwave

Place the sandwich on a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds, flipping halfway through to ensure even heating.

If you’re not microwaving it on the plate, make sure to use a heatproof dish that can resist high temperatures so as not to damage your dishwasher or oven.

2. Oven

Preheat your oven to 450°F, place the sandwich on a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Note that you will likely want to use parchment paper or foil on top of the baking sheet so that grease from the sandwich doesn’t drip onto your oven’s surface.

If you don’t plan on eating the sandwich right away, wrap it up in aluminum foil to preserve its heat and moisture for another meal!

3. Stovetop

Heat a nonstick skillet (or one with a low stick factor) over medium-low heat, place the sandwich inside, cover it with a lid, and allow it to sit until heated through.

Tips For Best Results

1. Keep Cheese Melted

Don’t rely on your microwave’s defrost setting to reheat anything with cheese in it, as it will often result in a cheese-less meal.

Instead, use the reheating tips above to maintain melted cheese in your sandwich for a perfectly melty dish every time.

2. Prevent Soggy Bread

Because bread soaks up moisture very quickly, you want to make sure that your bread doesn’t become soggy when you reheat it.

You can either wrap up the sandwich in aluminum foil (as mentioned above) or add condiments between layers of bread so that they absorb moisture while the bread stays crispy and delicious!

3. Maintain Crispy Exterior

Use a nonstick skillet or one that has a low stick factor, or lightly coat it with nonstick cooking spray.


Thanks to these three simple tips, you can now enjoy a warm grilled cheese anytime you want! Enjoy your next meal with cheesy flavor and crispy bread by heating it up in the microwave or oven or over the stove with a nonstick pan.

Happy eating!
