The Technique

Homemade Grilled Cheese

A really good grilled cheese sandwich begins with two pieces of Farmhouse White Bread as the thick, hearty slices are ideal for slathering with melted butter & topping with a selection of delicious cheeses. A cast iron skillet browns the bread beautifully while covering it during cooking helps retain heat to melt the cheese. A few additional pointers will have you making this comforting icon the best to date.

Melted butter
2 slices Farmhouse White Bread
2 tsp Creole mustard
2 slices Gouda, Gruyere or Cheddar cheese

Heat a well seasoned 8-inch cast iron skillet over Medium heat approximately 2 minutes. Hold your hand about 2 inches over the skillet. If it feels warm, brush a little melted butter on one side of one of the pieces of bread. Place the bread buttered side down in the skillet & top with the cheeses. Brush the mustard on one side of the remaining piece of bread & place it mustard side down over the cheeses. Brush the surface of the bread with melted butter. Reduce the heat to a few notches above the lowest heat setting. Cover the skillet with a lid & cook 2 minutes or until the bread is golden brown. Flip the sandwich using a spatula & cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until crispy over the bread surface, golden brown & the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

A Homemade Grilled Cheese is the prefect accompaniment to a variety of hearty meal solutions such as Lemon-Orzo Chicken Soup & Farro Minestrone or look to these toasty favorites to stand alone with few potato chips. Try a combination of cheese selections to switch up the flavor each time you prepare them. Gruyere, Munster, Provolone & finely shredded Parmesan make equally delicious sandwiches.

 Brush the mustard on one side of the remaining piece of bread & place it mustard side down over the cheeses. Brush the surface of the bread with melted butter.
