5 great tips for amazing grilled cheese sandwiches
Instead of your usual bagged white bread use rye or sourdough. They taste, hold, and toast better than the good old white bread. They will surely make your nice grilled cheese great.
Warm and crispy
Getting a nice crunch without your bread burning is vital for a great grilled cheese. Rather than throw your bread in a toaster, try to toast your bread with mayo in a skillet. Yes, that’s right. Spread some mayo on either sides of bread and toast it in a skillet on some low heat. Mayo prevents burning in your bread and toasting both sides will warm the outside and inside of your sandwich. Warm insides equal lovely cheese.
American cheese was essentially created for grilled cheese. However, there’s a larger world of cheese out there that’s yet to be discovered. Switching up or blending your cheese will turn your sandwich into a high-quality one. Muenster, provolone, and Havarti are mild, super stretchy, and melt well. If you want just a cheese sandwich, you can try a sharp cheddar or deli swiss. Grilled meat with smoked Gouda and fruit with brie are excellent as well.
This is your chance to be creative and experiment. Add meat, veggies, and fruit to your sandwich to make it an adult meal instead of a childhood snack. The following suggestions can help you get started.
For meat, add grilled chicken, sliced beef, eggs (ok, it’s not meat but it’s protein all the same), left-over turkey, pulled pork, bacon, and fried ham.
For fruit, add apples, pears, peaches, blueberries, grilled pineapple, and apricots.
For veggies, you can add lettuce, roasted peppers, avocado, onions, mushrooms, jalepenos, and pickles.
The sauce or spread is the last touch to a wonderful cheese that brings all ingredients together. A BBQ sauce can bring together pulled pork, havarti, and jalepeno. Brie with fig jam, chicken and apples is amazing. Siracha hot sauce can kick up your smoked Gouda, bacon, egg and mushroom breakfast sandwich. Only your imagination can limit your options.
Now, you might find yourself in a horrible situation where you crave grilled cheese but your stove is not working and you have no grill. If you have good electricity supply, then you can use your toaster.
