All About

Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese may be a kid favorite, but adults adore this simple sammie just as much. The classic American cheese on white bread variety with its buttery flavor and golden crust hits the spot no matter how you slice it. Grilled cheese can get more grown-up with ingredients like Gruyere and prosciutto. Create your own signature by experimenting.

recipe

Onion jam, which is reason enough to try this sandwich, is simple to make (see the recipe for Blaak Onion Jam at beekman1802.com, which also sells the jam by the jar). Although any blue cheese is delicious here, look for one that's sliceable or crumbly, not gooey. Stilton, Maytag, and Roaring Forties are good choices.

recipe

If you use thinner, presliced sandwich bread, you will need to reduce the amount of cheese and butter in the sandwich. Instead, use 1 1/2 ounces of cheese per sandwich (using a single layer of cheese) and coat the outer sides of the bread with a little less butter.
