Tips for the Perfect Grilled Cheese
Grilled cheese: you may think you have it all figured out, but just a few simple tweaks can elevate this dish from childhood staple to cheesy delicacy. Matt Fish from Cleveland’s Melt Bar and Grilled shares his tips for sandwich success.
Fish says it's important to brown the bread low and slow, so the outside becomes a crunchy, golden brown, while the inside starts to cook again, releasing a nutty flavor. This is the point where most people commit their first grilled cheese sandwich making error, Fish says. If you initially put the bread on too hot a surface, it'll burn and you'll have to start over. Remember, low and slow does the trick.
