Ultimate grilled cheese sandwiches are what’s on the menu today to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day! The traditional grilled cheese sandwich is a childhood staple, usually alongside a bowl of warm tomato soup. But now we’re adults, and adults need some serious, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches!
Cooking Tips for a Successful Grilled Cheese:
- Use a seasoned cast iron skillet or a cast iron electric skillet to make grilling easier
- Put a healthy pat of butter in the warmed pan and let it melt before grilling your sandwich
- Aim for a low-medium heat so as not to burn your bread before your fillings are melted and cooked.
- Cook each side about 3-5 minutes or until toasty, golden brown.
