One of the best grilled cheese sandwich recipes. It's vegetarian, incredibly easy to make and best of all, it's super tasty. Get the recipe from: How to make a grilled cheese sandwich at home - Best Tips & Tricks 1. Which bread makes the best grilled cheese sandwich Personally, I like making the grilled cheese sandwich with almost stale bread. Yep, you heard that right! Heat and cheese fat will bring stale bread to a perfect texture. So if you have some bread leftovers that you wanted to throw away, don't! Use them to make the best grilled cheese sandwich ever. But keep in mind that almost stale doesn't mean a 2 weeks old stone-hard bread, ok? Nothing can bring that back to life and I wouldn't want you to chip your teeth in it :) Aside from stale bread, you can use any kind of white or whole wheat bread, sourdough, rye or even homemade. Just make sure the slices are thin for the cheese to melt easy. Don't use loaves with holes in them because the cheese will make its way through and it will melt away on the grill. Now that you know which bread makes the best grilled cheese sandwich, let's talk about the main ingredient, cheese. 2. What is the best cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich This is my favorite part and not just because it involves melty cheese, but because you can adjust it to everybody's taste. It's actually the reason why I think this is one of the best grilled cheese sandwich recipes ever. I made it with mozzarella but if that's not your cup of tea, no worries, you can change it with any of your favorite medium-hard cheese. And here are some good ideas: Provolone, Cheddar, Gruyere, Comte, Fontina. Moreover, you can experiment and mix them together. Or, you can use one of the above melty cheeses and also add a bit of Parmesan or Feta. These two won't melt so don't add too much, just enough to enhance the flavor. And here's a great tip for you vegans. You can make it with vegan Mozzarella which is made with coconut milk. This is an excellent alternative to regular cheese, which doesn't compromise when it comes to taste and texture. See now why I call it the best grilled cheese sandwich recipe ever? It just keeps everybody happy. And there's more... Let's see what else we can stuff in to make this sandwich truly amazing. 3. What goes with grilled cheese I know that many people are literally in love with the classic grilled cheese sandwich and nothing I could say would ever change their minds. And that's alright, we all love it, but if you are a foodie who likes to experiment and try new things then the following paragraphs are for you. Actually, I could write a book about it because there are so many fillings that go perfectly with grilled cheese. But don't worry, I'll keep it short... this time :) I could have added some crispy bacon or salted beef and it would have been delish but I wanted it lighter and healthy so I stuffed it with lots of grilled veggies. Of course, you can change these with your favorites but keep in mind to use ingredients that would normally go well with a cheese platter. And here are a few good ones: caramelized onions, olive tapenades, chutney, figs, pears, chopped nuts. Or, you can let yourself inspired by the Mediterranean diet and fill it with fresh tomatoes, basil, pickled artichokes, fresh spinach, pesto sauce or pepperoni. Or just try it with your favorite veggie combo, after all, your sandwich your rules :) Ok, we know what to fill it with, but how do we cook the best grilled cheese sandwich? Well, let's see... 4. How to cook the best grilled cheese sandwich First of all, use a cast iron grill pan, or a panini press. Sure, you can also make it in a regular non-stick pan or even on an outdoor grill, but cast iron pans heat up faster and distribute heat more evenly than others. That's what makes it the best pan for many types of sandwiches. Make sure you heat the pan (no matter which kind you use) to medium-low, to cook the bread at the same pace as the cheese melts. Otherwise, the bread can get burned easily, especially on outdoor grills. Ok foodies, now you know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich at home so let's see how you make it.
