The simple grilled cheese sandwich has been around for decades and continues to live on as one of those nostalgic pastime foods for many generations. It has even grown into its own industry in varying parts of the world. In America alone there are hundreds of grilled cheese restaurants and food trucks that specialize in only grilled cheese sandwiches. And because of the simplicity of ingredients, the grilled cheese has great potential for customization. By simply changing up the breads and cheeses used in the sandwich you can create completely different and unique tastes.
One of my favorite ingredients to throw in a grilled cheese sandwich is fresh sliced roast beef. Getting some packaged roast beef from the grocery store and some Kraft singles make for a bomb lunch time sandwich.
2 Slices of your preferred bread. I usually go with some old fashioned white.
2 Slices of Kraft Singles American cheese. If you have more expensive tastes you can go big with some Pepperjack or Sharp Chedder.
2 Slices of Deli Roast Beef. The easiest option is to pick up the nice prepackaged bags at a grocery store.
1 tsp of Butter or Butter-like spread
1. Butter one side of each slice of bread
2. Layer your sandwich with a slice of cheese, then both slices of roast beef, and then lastly the the second slice of cheese.
2. On a low-medium heat, fry up the sandwich using a pan.
3. Once the bottom starts to get a nice golden brown color, flip the sandwich and golden up the other side.
4. After both sides have crisped up and the cheese has fully melted inside the sandwich take out of the pan and put on a plate.
5. Cut the sandwich in half diagonally (because that’s how real connoisseurs do it) then enjoy the sandwich, that’s all there is to it.
It’s a quick easy sandwich and no matter how many times you make it you can find a new way to enjoy it. I take whatever ingredients I got left over in the fridge and throw them in there sometimes when I’m really desperate, but hey, it makes it new every time. And remember, the classic grilled chazee is always a suitable sandwich if you don’t have anything to spice it up.
