Grilled cheese sandwich – an original comfort food – is one of those things that bring memories…
Grilled cheese and tomato soup – who hasn’t had that one? Though chicken noodle will do.
It is the only time I have cheese on my sandwich; after all it is the “meat” of the sandwich.
It is the only time I eat American Cheese.
I like my grilled cheese classic – two slices of bread, a slice of cheese, a bit of mayo inside, with butter on both sides. No tomatoes, no bacon, no extras. Just the plain classic, grilled golden – not dark – that it seems “soggy.” And the best is the one my husband makes for me…
It makes a perfect lunch, a descent dinner, and would even do for breakfast if you were so inclined.
I ask my son, Antonio, what he thinks of when I say “grilled cheese sandwich”?
- Flipping it in the pan without the spatula – the flick of the wrist
- Makes it with mayo and likes it likes them golden (my boy!).
- Always makes two. Both of which are for him.
- And, he thinks his grilled cheese sandwiches are the best in New Mexico – how modest.
I’m thinking of trying a new recipe…more for a grown-up? But these will take some forethought.
