Ah, the classic grilled cheese. Consisting only of buttered bread and cheese, this sandwich is a simple comfort food for many people around the world.

A grilled cheese doesn’t have to be boring or traditional, though, so here are 5 ingredients that can turn a normal grilled cheese into something extraordinary.

1. Tomato Jam

It makes sense, doesn’t it? A classic pairing with a normal grilled cheese sandwich is tomato soup, so adding tomato jam to the sandwich itself is a great way to compliment the cheesiness with a tangy touch.

2. Avocado

The world’s trendiest food right now is a perfect pick to add some extra creaminess and richness to a regular grilled cheese, and it’ll give you a boost of healthy nutrients too.

3. French Toast

Whaaat?! That’s right, using french toast for your grilled cheese instead of normal bread is a great way to add a touch of sweetness and a unique touch to the sandwich. You get bonus points if you drizzle maple syrup on top, too.

4. Macaroni Noodles

Now you must think that I’m crazy. Don’t knock it until you try it, though. Using macaroni (and cheese) as the filling between the bread of the sandwich is insanely delicious.

5. Strawberries

Hear me out here: if you use a mild, soft cheese like brie as the cheese in your sandwich, the tart sweetness of strawberries turns the sandwich into an absolute wonder.
