The Ultimate Sandwich

2 pieces of bread = 19 cents

2 pieces of cheese = 12 cents

butter = 10 cents

41cent grilled cheese!!!!

That right folks, grilled cheese is the best low budget meal around that not only tastes great but allows for your creativity to go wild too!

A typical grilled cheese sandwich consists of cheddar cheese in between 2 slices of buttered bread. The sandwich is then grilled, fried or baked in the oven.

I prefer to use a proper sandwich grill for the perfect sandwich every time!

Generally this sandwich is served with a hot bowl of tomato soup.

did you know that the grilled cheese sandwich has been around since the 1920’s as an open face sandwich and It wasn’t until the 1960’s that the top slice of bread was added to the sandwich? (wikipedia).

Please enjoy the following video and learn how to make a grilled cheese sandwich without a stove or oven!

Grilled cheese sandwiches can be made with a variety of ingredients besides the above. Try mixing up your cheeses or add meat or veggies for a grilled cheese twist!

My personal favorite includes Havarti cheese, black forest ham, red onion and tomato. mmmmm good

My roommate enjoys her sandwich with avocado, tomato, onion and cheddar cheese.

How do you like your grilled cheese?

    Do you know about the “express” method. Just toast your bread in the toaster first, add the cheese and it cooks in the fry pan in seconds. The sandwhich is much crispier this way.

    I love grilled cheese sandwichs but i make mine ont he stove with a frying pan. When i make them i usually heat the pan up first so that it is hot when i put the sandwich on and it cooks faster. But i learned the hard way to turn the heat down when you put the sandwich on. 🙂
