Starbucks Grilled Cheese

When I was in college, I would go to Starbucks almost every other day and order the classic Starbucks grilled cheese. But soon, I realized that I could make a finer grilled cheese at home. So, I researched a lot on the internet and talked to my friend who worked at an outlet of Starbucks. Then, I finally tried making it at my home and believe me, guys, it was better than they serve at the outlets.

To make Starbucks grilled cheese, take 2 slices of bread. Put 2 cheddar slices and some mozzarella cheese on one side of the bread. Then, cover it with another slice of bread and apply some parmesan spread and butter on the top of the bread. At last, grill for nearly two minutes and a perfect grilled cheese is ready.

What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Starbucks Grilled Cheese?

  • Sourdough Bread– If you are on the lookout for the exact same flavors as Starbucks Grilled Cheese, I recommend you use sourdough bread. It adds a tangy flavor to the recipe.
  • Softened Butter– Add softened butter to make the bread crispy and give it the classic brown tinge.
  • Mozzarella Cheese– Mozzarella cheese has mild flavors of cream in it and brings out the cheesy pull.
  • White Cheddar Cheese– White Cheddar cheese is not quite different from the regular cheddar cheese. Use aged and sharp cheddar cheese to make Starbucks-style grilled cheese.
  • Parmesan Cheese Spread-The gritty and flavors of parmesan cheese spread play a key role in replicating the authentic taste of Starbucks grilled cheese.

  1. You don’t make grilled cheese with just Parmesan because it isn’t a melting cheese.

    Starbucks uses white cheddar & mozarella (yum!) in its sandwiches with sourdough bread and Parmesan butter on the outside.
