As many of you know, I am a little bit obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches! While I was in Montreal, a friend at Van Houtte coffee suggested something new, a grilled cheese sandwich served with maple syrup and as soon as I heard the idea, I knew that I would have to try it! The sweet and savoury combination often works out well and when you combine two of my favourite things, grilled cheese sandwiches and maple syrup, you are bound to get a winner. Like I needed an excuse to try a grilled cheese sandwich in a new way!
The grilled cheese sandwich served covered in maple syrup turned out just as well as I thought it would! The sweet and savoury combination was magnificent and I will definitely be doing it again! Now grilled cheese sandwiches are not just for lunch any more and this is the perfect excuse to have them for breakfast!
Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Maple Syrup
A perfectly golden brown toasty, buttery grilled cheese sandwich filled with ooey gooey melted cheese served for breakfast, smothered in maple syrup.
- 1 tablespoon butter, room temperature
- 2 slices bread, day old
- 2 ounces cheddar cheese, grated/shredded, room temperature
- maple syrup to taste
- Heat a pan over medium heat.
- Completely butter one side of each slice of bread.
- Place one slice of bread in the pan, buttered side down, sprinkle on the cheese and top with the remaining slice of bread, buttered side up
- Turn the heat down a notch and cook until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes.
- Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2-4 minutes.
- Serve with maple syrup.
Mmmm this is so decadent! Breakfast? Lunch, Dessert? I love it!

Please stop posting grilled cheese recipes. I have gained 3 pounds.
Very interesting, I'm pregnnt and this sounds purty good.
kevin you rock! lol
i would totally eat this!
I literally just cooked and ate this after reading your post!! It was strange at first but then it made sense. I added turkey bacon on top so that with the cheese was really salty, the syrup balanced everything nicely.
I have to go work out now 🙂

Wow this is amazing and not at all weird, anything goes with maple syrup! Wish it wasn't so expensive here because I practically drink the stuff.
My breakfast looks so. So. Boring now.

Genius! I love it. I would definitely eat this at all times of day or night.
Now That is the best idea ever! Every thing is good with cheese and every thing is even better with maple syrup.
Get out of town, Kevin! Grilled cheese for breakfast?? With maple syrup?? Something I never would've dreamed up, but now I'll be dreaming about until I give it a try!
When I saw this in my feed, I knew it was you.
You? Obsessed with grilled cheese?

Hmmm, yummy! Thanks for wetting my appetite
Kevin, you're the man! This is subllime! Pass me a napkin, I swear this looks so amazing I'm starting to drool.
Try making a grilled cheddar cheese and crispy bacon sandwich on french toast with maple syrup. It's edging closer to a Monte Cristo than a traditional grilled cheese, but man… that's living.

This breakfast grilled cheese Sammy is nothing new. I have been eating this since I was a little kid and I’m 60 now! This was served to us at least 2-3 times per week either for breakfast or dinner as we all loved it so much! It’s now one of my daughters go to Sammy’s to make and she’s 35. Thanks for bringing this sandwich to light for the folks that have never tried this amazing Sammy!,!
