Grilled Cheese Recipe
Toasts and grilled cheese recipe is probably one of the easiest steps you can start your cooking endeavor with. Some might even say if it is worth posting a recipe for them. I am here to tell you that it is. Because once the little things are mastered, more complicated things follow.
- 16 slices of French bread
- 8 1/2- inch slices of fresh mozzarella or enough cheese for 8 grilled cheese
- 2 Tbsp butter
Use either sliced French bread or slice 1/2-inch slices of bread for the sandwiches. Each sandwich will get 2 slices of bread.
If the cheese you have is a little thicker, feel free to slice them gently. Layer the cheese in between the slices of bread.
Heat a large (or whatever size) skillet you have. Add 1 Tbsp butter and melt it on Medium-low heat. Spread out the butter for an even caramelization of the bread. Once the butter has melted, place the sandwiches on the skillet, however many the skillet can handle. I like to cover the sandwiches with a smaller lid and gently press down on it while the grilled cheese sandwiches are cooking. This helps with cheese melting faster and also creates a somewhat thinner and crispier sandwich.
Once the bottom of the grilled cheese turned golden brown, flip them and keep on cooking on that side. If you feel like it, drop a little more butter in between bread and gently spread it out. You can do the lid method again and give the sandwiches a slight press. Once you notice that the cheese is oozing from the sandwiches, Ii is a good indication that the cheese has melted. If both sides of the bread are nice and toasty, the sandwiches are ready.
