Baby Swiss & Dill Pickle Grilled Cheese

by Thea Miller

Baby Swiss is the soft, mellow, slightly fattier version of traditional Swiss cheese  With a subtle nutty, sweet flavor, baby Swiss makes a very different grilled cheese than Muenster and Brick cheeses do, but shares that same silkiness, meltiness, and stretch. If you like a traditional Swiss cheese flavor, Baby Swiss is your grilled cheese BFF!

Our Premium Baby is made by Chalet Cheese in Monroe, WI and is the Best in Class Winner at the 2022 World Championship Cheese Contest

Serves 4


  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 8 slices pumpernickel, rye or wheat bread
  • 8 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Cracovia Dill Pickles, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 12 oz Premium Baby Swiss, grated


Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Spread butter on 1 side of all 8 slices of bread. Spread Dijon mustard on the opposite side of 4 slices of bread. Top the mustard coated bread slices with grated Baby Swiss. Top cheese with slices of pickle and more cheese and set tops in place with the buttered side facing up.

Place the sandwiches in hot skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, toasting and crisping the bread. Cut and serve.
