Grilled cheese is a classic favorite of many people. It is the base for several different cheese recipes and is often served with tomato sauce. If you are looking for a great new twist on this old-fashioned favorite, try cooking it on a griddle. Here is how to make a grilled cheese sandwich using a griddle.
How To Make A Grilled Cheese Sandwich On A Griddle: This isn’t exactly a recipe, but it’s close. The best cheddar for grilling is the kind that comes from a store. It is usually very tough because the cheddar has to be allowed to age in a wine cave or refrigerator with an open-air system. Store-bought cheddar tends to be lower in fat, and the taste is usually better because it’s aged. If you don’t have a store brand, substitute half of the cream cheese for low-fat milk.
The bread you will need for this recipe is anything you have on a flatbread. Replace half of the white bread with the low-fat white bread. Spread a thin layer of the cheddar cheese on one side of the sandwich, and then top with the second piece of the bread. You can press down lightly with the back of a spoon into the sandwich bread to make sure the cheese covers both pieces of bread.
Heat the oil in your frying pan or wok until very hot, then place the bread on one side of the pan and turn it over so that both sides are evenly browned. Brush the bottom of the bread with the remaining half of the butter. Place the sliced cheese over the bread. Cover for about two minutes, then flip and cover the sandwich for another two minutes. Repeat this process until your cheddar is melting and your cheese has been spread.
Place about three-quarters of the non-stick cheddar onto the grilled cheese sandwich. Spread the rest of the butter over the top. Place in any kind of elective container you prefer. Place in your non-stick skillet as directed. Turn to medium heat and cook until the cheese begins to melt.
At this point, you may choose to add other items to your grilled cheese sandwich. Small pieces of tomato, pepper, onion, olives, bacon, or another kind of meat or sandwich topping are best. If you are creating a sandwich that has many fillings, like a pepperoni pizza, use a toothpick to get out parts of the filling and replace them with slices of bread.
The grilled cheese sandwich recipe you’ve just made will be absolutely perfect. Add about one-third of a cup of chopped tomatoes, and mix well. Then, using an offset spatula, carefully put the slices on top of the non-stick bread. Brush some olive oil over both sides of the slices, then place in your oven and let sit for about two hours. Unmold after about thirty minutes and serve.
The sharp cheddar cheese cuts perfectly and adds just the right amount of tang and flavor to a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s a very simple recipe that’s easy to follow. As you probably know, the only way to make a really good grilled cheese is by rolling the cheese itself into balls and then slicing them crosswise. This ensures that the ingredients have a consistent thickness and makes for the greatest mouthwatering experience. Making this cut properly also ensures a smooth and even melt-in-your-mouth taste. For this reason, it’s no surprise that people are always coming back to this favorite of cheese-making.
If you’re looking to up the ante a little bit (or even mix things up) while making grilled cheese sandwiches, you can’t go wrong with a non-stick skillet. A non-stick skillet, like a cast-iron skillet, works perfectly for this classic American fare. The skillet needs to be coated in oil before putting the sandwich into it. Then all you have to do is add the oil and turn the burner on medium-high to heat the skillet.
Now, since we’re talking about good ol’ grilled cheese, we might as well talk about good ol’ fashioned cheese. A good slice of sharp cheddar cheese goes best with a hearty bowl of tomato soup. You can make this delicious soup all on your own, or you can buy it. Just remember that canned soup has a lot of fat in it, so if you’re trying to lose weight, make sure you stay away from a soup of this type. If soup is your thing, you might also want to consider using skim milk instead of whole milk. Using reduced-fat milk will help cut down on the fat in your meal as well.
If you happen to have some of those great New York Style cheeses that make you ooh and aah, you can always melt them onto your bread. Before you put the cheese on the sandwich, make sure you rub it all over the surface of the bread. Then simply place it on the plate, slice it up and enjoy. Yes, it is possible to have a melt in your mouth grilled cheese sandwich without cheating. As long as you remember to season it properly, nothing can stop you from eating as much as you’d like!
