Oven Baked Grilled Cheese Dipping Sticks

Perfect for entertaining or a cozy meal at home, these grilled cheese dipping sticks are baked to perfection in the oven.


  • 7 oz sharp cheddar cheese slices
  • 16 oz sliced sourdough bread or other bakery bread
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine


  • Preheat the broiler and place a rack about 8 inches beneath it.
  • Slice the bread lengthwise into strips about 2 inches wide.
  • Cover a baking sheet with nonstick foil.
  • Spread some butter or margarine onto one side of one bread strip and place it butter-side down onto the foil.
  • Lay the cheese over the bread so that it sticks out about 1 inch on each side of the bread strip. Top with another strip of bread and spread butter on the top. Repeat with additional bread and cheese.
  • Place baking sheet under the broiler for approximately 5 minutes, or until the bread is toasted to your desired level (keep an eye on it because the bread will toast quickly!).
  • Remove the baking sheet to a heat-proof surface and flip each "sandwich" over with a spatula. (This will be messy, but it's OK! The more cheese gets all over the bread, the better.)
  • Return to the oven and broil for several more minutes or until bread is evenly browned.
  • Serve immediately, paired with your favorite soup.
