How does one properly toast a sandwich? I tried the other day on the stove, as I've seen others do, put it on medium heat...had a roll, both sides on the skillet one side with condiments the other with meat and cheese
The rolls got nice and toasty, but everything else just got slightly warm, no meltyness as I see other people get.....so how do you do it the right way?
You put the bread under the broiler (low, not high unless you're constantly watching it) to toast the bread. I like to slice it in half first and face the inside upwards. Also you can add cheese first.
Heat the meat and other shit in a skillet or something until it's as hot as you want it, then use tongs to transfer the food to the toasted bread?
I was thinking maybe the problem was I put meat and cheese on the same side, maybe if I put the meat on one and cheese on the other alone
If you want melty cheesy toast on a stovetop, you should put the bread with stuff on it on very low heat and cover it.
Wait a few minutes (depending on how much stuff you want to melt), then lift the cover to check for meltiness. Once it's melted to your liking, lift the bread to see how toasted it is. If it's not toasted enough, turn up the heat without covering.
Finished, obviously you can see what the problem is the bread cooks too fast

I'm cracking up right now, anon.
It's not that the bread cooks too fast, it's that you had the heat up too high and burnt it.
