Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Grilled Cheese
Ottawa’s Art-Is-In Boulangerie bakery makes a lot of delicious baked goods, but they’re known for their delicious bread. The only way to make the bread better? It’s to grill it, of course. Their grilled cheese is smothered in Gruyère cheese, provolone and caramelized onions, and grilled to perfection.

The Hogtown Smoke diner in Stoney Creek, ON serves comfort food, like no other. Their grilled cheese sandwich uses three types of melted cheese, adds in slow cooked BBQ pulled pork and even adds a splash of Jack Daniel’s to the sauce to shake things up.
The Clubhouse Grilled Cheese
The Clubhouse Sandwich Shop in Toronto offers their take on the traditional clubhouse sandwich by turning it into a perfectly golden grilled cheese.

The Summit Cafe in Canmore, AB offers this spicy shrimp and gooey cheddar pressed sandwich that is fan favourite.
