What type of cheese works best to make garlic grilled cheese?
Whatever type of cheese that the kids like! If they love spicy cheese, make it spicy. If they love American cheese, add on American. The great thing about this simple recipe is that you can change up how it tastes every single time.
And I’m a big believer that the more cheese that you can add on, the better. My family does prefer a really good brand of sharp cheddar for this garlicky sandwich but you can’t go wrong with any type of cheese!

Tips for Making Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese
Since there aren’t many steps to this recipe, there aren’t very many things to keep in mind BUT there are a few things that I’ve learned along the way.
I prefer to use slices of cheese versus shredded cheese because it melts evenly and is just less messy. (however, shredded cheese works for this recipe, too!)
You can always add on pizza cheese or a tomato sauce if you want to kick up the flavor, too!
Make certain that you pay attention to the heat, and keep int on low-medium as you don’t want the bread to get overly crispy before the cheese melts! You want to get to a point with the bread that it toasts up and the cheese becomes melted goodness.
