I feel you have a great grilled cheese is when you have the finished product and slice it the cheese is melted and gooey when you pull it apart. To make a good and simple grilled cheese...
1. Two slices of bread of choice. Most use wonderbread. Spread mayonnaise on one side of each slice.( This will keep the cheese moist and gooey.)
2. Place your cheese on your slice of bread.( Velveta works best) about 2-3 on desired cheesiness. Put the bread together to make the sandwich. Usually I place the sandwich in the microwave for a few seconds to the point the cheese is soft just before its melted.
3. Soften some butter and spread on one side of the sandwich place that side onto a pan. The tempt. Should be set to a medium-low. Spread butter onto the other side of the sandwich that is facing up. Cook each side till golden brown. Time varies. (instead of butter bacon drippings works just as well)
>>7362777 Put a slice of american cheese (don't use anything fancier than velveta) between two slices of bread. put chunks of butter in a pan and place the sandwich on top. Cook untill butter melts and soaks into bread and starts to golden brown. Cover top with more butter and flip the whole thing. when that side is browning, sprinkle the now crispy first side with sharp chedar and flip. When the cheese has turned into a crispy coating, repeat for the other side.
Thick cut sourdough. Shred cheddar cheese and put it between two slices. Spread mayonnaise thin on both outsides and throw it on your griddle or fry pan on medium heat. Turn when it's brown. Cut it crossways. Kiss your thumb and forefinger and exclaim "wa-la!".
>Get sour dough bread >Get maybe a quarter cup of mayonnaise and mix with some Sriracha >get decent quality American cheese >Spread the mayo/meme sauce on both slices of bread, throw on pan over medium heat and cook like you would a grilled cheese sandwich
the main thing u need to learn is about pan temp, not what u put in. And using the right type of bread. preheat your pan to medium (leave it on the heat for 5 min by itself) butter bread and use a little oil in the pan. Get a nice loaf from the baker section, i like sourdough cook open face till the cheese melts
Keep the heat on the low side. Bread burns quickly, so keep an eye on it. If you bread is toasted but the cheese isn't melted for whatever reason, then cover the pan for a bit until (maybe 20-30 secs) till it's gooey. And if it gets cold for whatever reason, then pop it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds and your good to go
>>7364718 Fuck off. Though I wouldn't call a grilled cheese sandwich with meat in it a grilled cheese anymore, more like an x melt or grilled x and cheese. The subhuman trash that thinks velveeta is cheese are the ones who really need to kill themselves.
>>7366675 It depends upon the size and quality of the croissant I can get my hands on. Just what I've found from experience. But yeah, you're on the right track, it softens up a bunch, doesn't fall apart or anything. Still a perfectly good sandwich.
>>7367659 There was one odd thing I tried, though. I made one with leftover mac n' cheese once just to see if it was any good. It actually kind of worked, so maybe just grab a recipe and use those instead?
>>7362777 You see op, the real secret to making a good grilled cheese is making sure your cheese isn't cold when you start cooking the grilled cheese. Most people slap what ever cheese they have strait from the fridge onto the bread and then into the pan. But if you cheese is cold your bread is going to cook faster then your cheese and you get a burnt sandwich or a not melty grilled cheese.
ACTUALLY I made an emergency grilled pimento cheese sandwich earlier tonight and just cooked it on low heat. The bread got nice and crispy while the cheese got nice and melty. But yeah you're still right. I've fucked up like that plenty of times. When the need for a grilled cheese hits you there isn't much time to think.
>>7367818 >>7368740 its easy to just cook at a lower temperature especially when using thick bread it will take longer you just have to be patient
using bread 1 inch thick can make a great grilled cheese but its going to take almost 15 minutes at a low heat turning the sandwich every few minutes for even heat. it will come out golden brown and crispy
and for an extra flair just before your sandwich is done put cheese in the pan and put your bread on top of it. the cheese will stick to the outside and get brown and crispy. works with parmesan, cheddar and most cheeses
I like the Country Grilled Cheese at the Royal Oak Brewery here in Michigan, though I’d slice the apples thiner; Fontina and white cheddar cheese, smoked bacon and Granny Smith apples grilled on French bread. Served with a cup of tomato bisque. $10.50
Put a cover over it near the end. I have the same problem with melting thick slices of cheddar over a pan fried burger. The meat doesn't retain enough heat on top to melt the cheese. I put a pot lid or foil over it for the last minute or so.
