What Makes A Great Grilled Cheese Sandwich?
Sometimes I’m in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s one of those items with a permanent spot on many children’s menus out there. I’ve never grown out of my love for the toasty buttered bread and the gooey melted cheese. Some people like to slip in some slices of fresh tomato, maybe a little bacon…some like it with white bread some may like it with wheat. Maybe you like your grilled cheese with a side of tomato soup. It’s tasty and easy.
A grilled cheese sandwich is one of the first things a kid figures out how to make growing up. As I got older, this simple sandwich became comfort food for me. I recently stopped by the Boudin Sourdough bakery/cafe at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco and had a great grilled cheese sandwich along with some tomato soup. The right choice of grub for an overcast and drizzly day. Perfectly toasted sourdough bread, a nice blend of cheeses and a bowl of warm tomato soup. A very satisfying combination
So let’s open this tasty topic to a discussion. Chances are there are some of you out there with a killer version of your own. I sadly have not mastered the fine art of grilled cheese sandwich construction but I’m eager to get some of your ideas. I’m curious to know what the GrubGrade readers think about this simple meal. Any special cheeses, bread, toaster, griddle??? Maybe share a recipe. So how do you like yours? What makes a great grilled cheese sandwich?
