Top 3 Tips for Making The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Today it is time to make our childhood dreams come true by discussing some of the top 3 tips for making the best-grilled cheese sandwiches of all time. With April being national grilled cheese month, it is time to celebrate and make the gooiest, cheesiest grilled cheese sandwiches.
Everyone knows the key to making a great grilled cheese is to perfect the degree to which the bread is toasted and to get the most epic cheese pull. But how can we achieve these goals? Check out our top 3 tips to find out.
1. Use Mayonnaise
Listen up, mayo haters; swapping your butter for mayo is a major game changer when making grilled cheese sandwiches. Butter has a relatively low smoking point compared to mayonnaise, allowing it to burn more easily as you make your grilled cheese. The egg yolk and oil also help the bread get a better-browned color than butter can achieve.
2. Add Unique Ingredients
You can make a very traditional grilled cheese with two slices of bread and a slice of American cheese, or you can get creative and make your own unique sandwich. We choose the second option. For inspiration, you can try adding meats such as pulled pork and brisket. You can even go wild with the carbs and dairy and add mac and cheese.
3.Mix Different Types of Cheese
When making grilled cheese, you can get the best flavor and cheese pull by mixing different types of cheese. You can combine different cheeses such as cheddar, Havarti, and mozzarella to get the right amount of flavor and texture. Other popular cheeses include gouda and American cheese. Try them all out and see what you like best!
Remember to Practice Food Safety
Although grilled cheese sandwiches have minimal ingredients (it’s one of the things we like most about them), it is still incredibly important to practice food safety. Check the expiration date of the bread you are using and make sure your cheese has not gone bad. You should also store your cheese properly and keep it dry to ensure freshness.
