Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Good morning y’all today’s recipe is so simple but I feel that it’s worth sharing. I want to show you in my opinion what the best grilled cheese sandwich looks like. Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of our favorite meals. The best part is that it takes just a couple of minutes to make one. In order to make a good grilled cheese sandwich you don’t need any fancy cheese or bread. I use god old store bought white bread and cheddar cheese slices.

My favorite cheese to use is from Sargento. I think it has the best flavor and it melts really well. I very much prefer it over Kraft Singles which is what I think is the most traditional cheese used for grilled cheese sandwiches. If you haven’t tried it yet with Sargento cheese you really should!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

First thing you want to do is heat up a cast iron skillet over medium heat. I always make mine in a cast iron skillet they are the best! While the skillet is heating up grab two slices of bread. Spread a generous amount of butter on one side of the bread.

buttered bread

Place the buttered slice of bread butter side down in the skillet. Then top with cheese. I like to use one and a half slices. This way the sandwich isn’t too cheesy or not cheesy enough. But it also depends on your taste. Add your desired amount of cheese.
