When the sandwich is grilled, the KEWPIE Mayonnaise forms a beautiful golden crust on the bread, adding a delightful crunch and a depth of flavor that ordinary butter can’t match.


Makes 1 sandwich

  • 2 slices bread, toasted
  • 2 Tbsp. KEWPIE Mayonnaise
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 sliced tomato


  1. Prepare the bread: Spread 1 Tbsp. of KEWPIE Mayonnaise on one side of each slice of toasted bread.
  2. Assemble the sandwich: Place one slice of bread in a frying pan, mayonnaise side down. Add a slice of cheddar cheese, followed by the sliced tomato, and then top with another slice of cheese. Cover with the second slice of bread, mayonnaise side up.
  3. Grill the sandwich: Turn on the heat to medium and cook the sandwich until the bottom side is golden brown and the cheese starts to melt. Carefully flip the sandwich and cook the other side until golden brown and the cheese is fully melted.
  4. Serve and enjoy: Remove the sandwich from the pan, cut it in half diagonally, and serve immediately while it’s hot and the cheese is still gooey.

Kewpie Pro Tip

The key to a truly exceptional Grilled Cheese with Tomato is all in the technique. Make sure to use a medium-low heat to allow the cheese to melt gradually while the bread turns a perfect golden brown. The KEWPIE Mayonnaise not only adds flavor but also helps create a beautiful, even crust on the bread. For an extra burst of flavor, try adding a sprinkle of herbs like basil or oregano to the sandwich before grilling. You can also experiment with different types of cheese or add other vegetables like spinach or roasted peppers. With KEWPIE Mayonnaise as your trusty ally, the possibilities for creating your perfect Grilled Cheese with Tomato are endless.
