This grilled cheese in particular is so good. SO GOOD!
Start out with your basics: bread, cheese and butter. The secret ingredient is... drum roll please... mayonnaise! I love mayonnaise and I get the kind made with olive oil. It makes a serious difference! I've had grilled cheese sandwiches without mayo and they're just not as ooey-gooey-delicious as the ones with them.
The second secret step is to lightly toast the bread before starting! You don't want it to be like actual toast, but lightly toasted so that the bread is a little bit rough. It really helps spreading butter!
Mmmm. Butter. I'm clearly very good at spreading it evenly too. Ha! Go ahead and build it like a regular grilled cheese, but don't forget the mayo on the inside! A little bit goes a long way but it really makes all the difference in the world!
On medium heat, cook the sandwich until the sides are golden brown. It shouldn't be so hot that you can't touch it and check the coloring! The sandwich above... Yes please.
You know you're done when you can lift up the four corners of the sandwich and see the melted cheese. Again, it shouldn't be so hot that you can't touch it! Medium heat is key.
The age old question... How do you cut your grilled cheese? For some reason I have always cut it diagonally, and my mom always cuts hers straight down the middle!
To. Die. For. Seriously, taking these pictures was miserable! I couldn't wait to die right in and start eating it.
And when I did, it was worth it.
