Enjoy life and eat a Grilled Cheese Sandwich! Why not right? It is fairly easy to make and a staple of American society. Everyone loves a grilled cheese. Lately I have been experimenting with different variations of said sandwich and just the other day I have come up with the killer grilled cheese sandwich that surely will hit home with all of you. Stay with me on this one. I am going to dive deep…
The basic grilled cheese is your buttery covered bread and grilled cheese, cooked on the stove to a golden brown perfection. I am going to take it a few steps further.
I won’t include a picture of the Bread, but you should all know what bread looks like. You will start with 2 pieces of White bread, whole grain, or which ever floats your boat. I will use white bread.
Next I actually like to completely melt my butter, I used a quarter to half a stick of butter for the Grilled Cheese.
Once the butter is melted I like to add a bit of Garlic Powder to the butter mix, it makes the finished product taste a bit like garlic bread!
Once you mix in the Garlic Powder, pour a fair amount onto once side of each slice of bread and make sure it is soaked in. The buttered side will go face down onto the pan.
So basically it is all uphill from here and you will have that cheese in your mouth very shortly…
Make sure the pan is heated and add the bread.
You will have to be a good judge at watching the bread. You don’t want it to burn, but when it starts to get a golden brown color that is when you go ahead and add the cheeses and whatnot.
I will start with 3 pieces of American cheese. We had the good stuff this kind, straight up from the Deli.
Take the three pieces and place them on one of the slices of bread.
Next I added a piece of ham, just for taste.
Then believe it or not, I grilled up some bacon. Hold it. This is about to get tasty! I am not kidding around here.
To be completely honest, I ended up eating one piece before it ever got onto the Grilled Cheese. But one piece DID make it and it made the sandwich. It really put the sandwich together.
Then finally just for added effect, I decided to throw on some Feta cheese, which is probably one of the smartest things I have done in my life.
The Feta really made the Grilled Cheese unique tasting. Really can’t put it into words, kind of dark and sweet taste.
But lets not forget the bacon, that is the real reason I made the grilled cheese. For the Bacon.
So once everything is on the sandwich add the other slice of bread to the top. You really do not need to keep flipping it over and over. One flip will do. When the cheese is oozing out, that’s how you know you have a winner. Carefully place the Grilled Cheese on a dinner plate and enjoy. Ideally you should have this with tomato soup, for dipping but the bacon would have been too over powering
