Yeah, Buddy! Grill That Cheese!

Homemade bread, especially with a chewy crust, isn’t always my favorite for sandwiches. Basic sandwiches, that is. Grilled cheese on the other hand…Oof!

Grilled cheese is a terrific addition to your day.

Grilled Cheese is amazing. It can get real fancy, real quick. Or it can be good and slummy. Take your pick!

The same basic procedure for every kind – butter both sides of the bread. Grill each slice side by side, then flip it over. Put the cheese on the toasty side and let the other side toast before slamming together.

It’s freaking delicious. It is sunshine for your rainy days.

BASIC SLUMMY GRILLED CHEESE

It’s not that slummy, because you are using homemade bread. If you want to get real decadent, buy some white processed trash bread. I find upping the bread game delicious, though.

Don’t get too oily, but find some American trash cheese. Sliced up thin. This cheese will melt better than any cheese you will find in your life. It’s the kind that gets ooey-gooey. This sandwich MUST be finished with a diagonal slice. Wait a few seconds before cutting, or all the cheese will vanish. It’s, frankly, incredible.

Garnish with a dipper of tomato soup.

RUSTIC IS NOT A REAL ADJECTIVE BUT YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT

Take some “real cheese.” Usually a very sharp cheddar. Slice it up, or shred it. Don’t use the pre-shreds. They don’t melt as well.

Get yourself a thickish slice. This works best open face. Sure, you can make a true sandwich, but then it’s silly to put the whole shebang under the broiler.

Load that cheese on, bro.

ADD JAM

That’s it. Or some fruit slices, like apples. Use more than one cheese. It loses some flavor when it melts. I like to heat the fruit up.

GRILL IT

Instead of using a pan. Use a grill.

It can catch fire very quickly. I’d still eat it.

TRUSTY CRUSTY

So, take the bread and grill both sides. Add the center cheese. Let it melt, then slam the sides together.

With me? Good.

Now, you add cheese on the top. Throw a towel or lid over it for a few seconds. When it’s started to melt, flip it over. It’s going to sizzle. It’s going to smoke a bit.

Trust the process.

Use your spatula and really get under that melted cheese. Get it off there. It’s a cheese-crusted grilled cheese, and it’s freaking fantastic.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Garlic salt.

That is all.
