Disney's The Toy Story Land Grilled Cheese Recipe

April 20, 2020

This is not your average grilled cheese sandwich!

Disney parks and resorts across the globe have been forced to shutter temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped Disney fans from making their own Disney magic at home — particularly in their kitchens.

Through a new website, Disney Magic Moments, Disney has been sharing stories, videos activities and (most importantly for those of us obsessively quarantine cooking and stress-eating) recipes. They started off with sweet treats — first their famous churro bites, then a simple three-ingredient Dole Whip.

Now, if savory comfort food is more your style, you’re in luck, because Disney has just released the official recipe for a decadent Three-Cheese Grilled Cheese, just like the one served in Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World.

The recipe for this ooey-gooey sandwich comes from Woody’s Lunch Box at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. To make it, you’ll need three kinds of cheese — double Gloucester or cheddar, provolone and cream cheese — plus artisan bread, heavy cream, mayonnaise, minced garlic and coarse salt.

Cream cheese, cheddar or double Gloucester, heavy cream and salt get combined in a food processor and spread between two slices of artisan bread topped with cheddar and provolone. Slather the garlic spread made from minced garlic, mayonnaise and salt on either side of the sandwich before grilling it in a large skillet until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.

Serve your sandwich just like they do at Woody’s Lunch Box with a side of potato barrels (aka tater tots) or a cup of tomato soup for dunking.
