How to Make a Perfect Grilled Cheese
Best Bread for Grilled Cheese
Making the perfect grilled cheese starts with picking the best bread. Forget about the bread aisle, and instead pick up fresh bakery bread for the best results! You want it to be fresh and crisp. Or, make it yourself:
Best Cheese for Grilled Cheese
Pick a cheese that melts easily for the best results with your gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches! This is the most important part of choosing your cheese. Here are some of the best cheeses for melting:
- Colby Jack
Best Toppings for Grilled Cheese
- Millionaire’s bacon: Sweet candied bacon with a kick of heat
- Slow cooker pulled pork: Delectably tangy teriyaki pulled pork
- Sauteed mushrooms and onions: The perfect pairing of caramelized onion and mushrooms
- Homemade buffalo sauce: Spicy and easy homemade buffalo sauce
- Butter both sides of your bread. This adds flavor and keeps your grilled cheese from burning. Another choice is to use a little mayonnaise in place of butter.
- Use Texas toast instead of regular bread!
- Give it toppings! The best grilled cheese ideas are not plain. My favorite topping is our delicious French Fry Seasoning… it is just amazing!
