Who doesn't love a classic grilled cheese sandwich every now and then? It's one of the ultimate comfort foods. Curious how you can get that great crispy finish to the exterior of your sandwich bread? Try these tips:
- Preheat your pan/griddle. Make sure it is hot - not just warm - but seriously hot.
- Use melted butter and brush it onto the bread rather than using cold butter that you spread on with a knife.
- When you put the sandwich in the pan/on the griddle, DO NOT move it around! Just let it sit, un-bothered, for a minute or so, or until the bread reaches your desired crispness. I know, you want to peek, but resist the urge, your patience will be rewarded.
