Frequently asked questions – FAQ
what equipment do you need to make the Starbucks grilled cheese?
You would need a good pan, a spatula, small mixing bowl and a knife to spread the cheesy butter on your sourdough.
A parmesan grater is optional if you want to grate your own cheese which I think adds extra pizaz to this recipe!
How to store grilled cheese?
Grilled cheese is best enjoyed as soon as you make it. If you have any leftovers you can keep them in an air tight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
Reheat the sandwich either in the microwave or on the stovetop on medium low heat for a few minutes on each side and enjoy.
Can I use other cheeses?
Absolutely. The cheese selection here was to get this recipe as close to the Starbucks version but here are other cheeses that would make this sandwich AMAZING!
- Orange cheddar
- Pepper Jack
- Colby Jack
Can I use other breads?
I definitely think some breads are better than others but use whatever bread you usually love to use for grilled cheeses. Brioche is delicious, thick multigrain bread slices, or even ciabatta work wonders.
What to serve with this grilled cheese sandwich?
If you’re trying to get the full Starbucks experience, I would go with my Starbucks iced caramel macchiato recipe.
Or you can go on a more traditional route and serve it with tomato soud or even a ceasar salad.

While I am sure this is delicious ( like your other recipes) it is missing the garlic! I love Starbucks grilled cheese sandwiches. Their ingredient list does list a garlic- cheese- butter blend.
