This is the best-grilled cheese sandwich recipe ever. Each bite is crunchy and cheesy to perfection. Excellent for breakfast or as a tasty comfort food.
Grilled cheese is a traditional breakfast sandwich from the United States. It has existed since the early twentieth century.
I am not much of a person for breakfast, and neither is my husband. That is why a lot of my breakfast recipes involve quick breakfasts that don’t involve me being in the kitchen for long, such as my egg shakshuka recipe or my egg sandwich recipe.
This grilled cheese sandwich recipe is another example of one such recipe. It is probably the simplest one yet with only three ingredients.
Due to its very minimal use of ingredients, be sure that you carefully select each ingredient.
Sourdough bread is ideal for grilled cheese sandwiches. It is a slow-fermented bread that is healthier than most other bread options. That is why it is one of my favourite pieces of bread to use for this recipe.
It is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is a good choice for grilled cheese because it has a thick, dense, and sturdy texture.
This means that it can withstand multiple layers of fillings, so if you want to modify this recipe to make your own version, this bread can handle it.
Furthermore, the soft and tangy flavour complements the sharp and gooey cheese perfectly.
Ciabatta, brioche, and rye bread are also excellent choices. Brioche is made from an enriched dough, so it has a sweeter flavour. Be sure to keep that in mind.
There are other bread options to consider, each with its own set of advantages. Regardless of the bread used, ensure that the slices are thickly cut. Make sure to use a serrated knife to get an even cut.
Cheese is an important ingredient as well, so choose it wisely. My recipe calls for cheddar cheese, which I personally think is one of the best to use. It melts easily and has a mild, cheesy flavour that everyone can appreciate.
Now I know that American cheese often gets a bad reputation, but it actually is perfect for a classic grilled cheese. It melts beautifully and becomes delectably gooey.
Brie, monetary jack, fontina, gruyere, provolone, mozzarella, and blue cheese are among the many other excellent kinds of cheese.
It is very important that you do not skimp on the butter, so be generous. One tablespoon of butter may seem excessive for a single grilled cheese sandwich, but it is essential in creating that delicious crispy brown crust and imparting flavour.
In the wintertime, I love to make this grilled cheese sandwich and dipping into some roasted tomato and basil soup. Nothing beats this pair.
However, for breakfast, I love to eat mine with a cup of tea, specifically Indian tea. The ultimate breakfast combination.
