The secret to the perfect grilled cheese sandwich isn’t fancy artisan cheeses or ancient grain breads. The secret turns out to be stunningly simple. Keep reading and we will tell you how we do it.
First, don’t be stingy with the butter. This is no time for calorie counting. Your goal is the perfect grilled cheese sandwich, not a thinner waistline. Keep your heat on medium-low, and take your time cooking, three to four minutes per side. If the heat is higher, you risk burning the bread before the cheese inside melts.
As you see, the real secret to the perfect grilled cheese is slow frying. Get cooking and don't forget to print the recipe below!
