You know that look of euphoria Remy gets on his face in Ratatouille when he takes a bite of the strawberry and cheese at the same time? Yeah, that was me after I came across this Disney-inspired sweet and spicy grilled cheese recipe. In a TikTok video, food blogger Brogan Wu, aka The Kitchen Witch, shared her take on the Disney Parks Grilled Cheese Sandwich — with a delicious twist. Made with cream cheese, two types of cheddar, and provolone, this grilled cheese is worthy of being added to Gusteau's menu — with a bowl of hot tomato soup on the side, of course.
"There were a few things about their original recipe I wanted to change, little things that probably won't matter to anyone but me (micro-planed garlic instead of minced, crustier bread choice, and a more even cheese to bread ratio) but the one thing I knew could make this better was some heat and some honey," Brogan captioned an Instagram post sharing photos of the four-cheese sandwich.
As if I wasn't already rummaging through my fridge for sharp cheddar, Brogan takes it a step further by adding in a few nontraditional ingredients, including red chili flakes and honey, making this a five-star sandwich in my book. The garlic mayo on the outside of the bread is the finishing touch that has me ready to send my compliments to the chef.

- In a small bowl, add the mayonnaise and the microplaned garlic. Stir to combine and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, add the softened cream cheese, shredded white cheddar, red chili flakes, and sea salt. Mix well and set aside.
- To build the sandwich, grab one slice of Tuscan bread (or bread of your choice) and add a layer of sliced sharp cheddar.
- Next, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture and spread evenly over the sharp cheddar.
- Add a drizzle of hot honey and a layer of sliced provolone.
