Making the best-grilled cheese sandwich ever
It's the burning question asked by home chefs, college students, and cheese lovers everywhere: what's the best-grilled cheese recipe ever?
Short answer: it's the one you love the most. Long answer: the best-grilled cheese sandwich depends on your preference, on your playfulness for experimenting in the kitchen, and on your taste in bread, cheese, and sandwiches in general. For some, the best-grilled cheese sandwich is two slices of buttered white bread with a layer of Monterey Jack and not another ingredient in sight. For others, the best-grilled cheese recipe may be a mix of cheeses – oh, let's say baby swiss, butterkäse, and edam – on slices of sourdough slathered in mayo and topped with caramelized onions, roasted heirloom tomatoes, a few leaves of basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze.
That's the great thing about grilled cheese – it's everybody's best friend. Do with it what you will, experiment as you please, and you'll always end up with a sandwich that's born to be a comfort to your soul.
Of course, if you're a fan of flavor, the best-grilled cheese sandwich will be made with Wisconsin cheese.
