What a comfort food, and simple, too. Grilled cheese sandwich: White bread, butter the outside, longhorn Cheddar in thin slices or American cheese if you must, a hot iron skillet*, a spatula. Done in 5 minutes or less.
(Or, an iron and tin foil, if you live in a dorm room.)
I heard of kids who ate them with a mug of tomato soup for dunking. We never did this – just had grilled cheese sandwiches and that was that.
Today, mine include plain, and pimento – it’s a grilled pimento-cheese sandwich, actually, my all-time wonderful comfort sandwich – bacon and cheese. I don’t like tomato on mine – it makes them soggy and that tomato will burn your mouth long after the cheese has cooled.
What kinds do you like best? What’s your favorite cheese?
