The Ultimate Grilled Cheese

Have you ever had a really good grilled cheese sandwich? With just the perfect amount of cheese and the bread just right? Yeah, me too. Grilled cheese is a lunchtime favorite at my house and I believe I have perfected my recipe.

Oodles of cheddar cheese ...

freshly baked bread ...

I use a mixture of butter and mayonnaise on the outside of the bread and a very thin layer of mayonnaise on the inside before placing the cheese on the bread. I turn the sandwich twice. Once it starts to get golden brown I flip it - then about a minute later I flip it again. So each side gets two flips. I find this keeps the bread from burning. Nothing is worse than a burnt grilled cheese sandwich.

Some call it comfort food - I just call it amazingly good.

  1. Thanks for sharing this grilled cheese recipe. I've been looking for some sandwich recipes because I love eating grilled cheese with tomato soup. I agree, burnt bread really ruins the sandwich. I have never seen a recipe that uses mayonnaise before. I wonder how that affects the overall sandwich taste. I have to try it!
