005 - Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I honestly believe GCS had magical power. Make it right, and even you'll be able to mend a broken heart. So follow these steps and stole your lovers/crush's heart through their tummy. Guaranteed.

All you need are these 3 ingredient:

1. White Bread
2. Melting Cheese
3. Butter/Margarine.

If you're on a diet, fuck off, this recipe is not for you. There's no way a whole wheat bread would be able to substitute the fluffiness and crunchiness of white bread. FORGET ABOUT IT.

For the cheese. Pick whatever you want. The sky is your limit. But if you had to choose, I'd say go for a sharp cheddar. Cheap Kraft would do fine, but I love Bega slice cheese. It tasted subtle but with a hint of sharpness.

Butter. Go for French Butter. Elle Vierre or Anchor would do fine.But if you're part of that vegetarian crowd, margarine worked just fine.

Ready? Here we go!

1. Heat the pan, Non Stick or Not, any kind would do fine. Medium Heat.

2. Spread the room temperature butter onto the bread, ONLY on the outside. Leave the insides plain, because that is where you put your own preferred seasonings.

3. Now this is where you can go crazy. I like to put a bit of yellow mustard, ketchup, sometimes even sriracha to add a taste. But purist go plain! If you're done with the seasoning, put your cheese sandwiched between the 2 bread.

4. Toast the muthafuckin' bread over the pan. Watch in awe as the butter helps cook and crisp the outside of the bun. And at this stage, you can move it around for a bit, but not too much or you won't get that nice brown crusts.

5. Now here's a nice hack to ensure the cheese melt quickly. Put a lid on top. This will create steam that help to pulverize the cheese. But be aware, use this technique accordingly, use it too much and you'll end up with a soggy mess. And you're not gonna be happy.

6. After about 2-3 minutes, or until you reached the desired doneness, flip it to the otherside and cook it for another 2 minutes.

7. Once you see the cheese has melted, the crust are golden and crispy, pull it out. BECAUSE IT IS FUCKING FINISHED.




You can thank me later. Now go grab your lazy ass to the kitchen!
