I love to make fun grilled cheese sandwiches, with different kinds of cheeses, herbs, veggies anything really to make it interesting.
But sometimes I just want an Old School Grilled Cheese Sandwich. For me, that's white bread and white American cheese. Not that orange, processed, individually wrapped American cheese stuff.
Actual American Cheese... from the deli.
That's what I made tonight.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
2 slices white bread
2 or 3 slices real American cheese
butter, room temperature
Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place one slice of bread, buttered side down in a skillet over medium heat. Top with cheese slices. Cover with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up. Cook until golden and flip. When golden on both sides, remove from pan and enjoy!
Buttered white bread
One slice, buttered side down and topped with cheese
Cover with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up
Flip when desired level of golden goodness is reached
For me this could be right up until almost burned
When the other side is a golden match, you're done!
Now when I mention the Old School Grilled Cheese Sandwich, most people instantly want a bowl of tomato soup with it. I've never had tomato soup with my grilled cheese. My mom never made it. So tonight I called her to ask her why. She said, back then she really wasn't much of a soup fan. I can remember her making turkey & rice soup after a turkey dinner, but really no other soups from scratch. We did have a selection of Campbell's soups in the cabinet. Most chicken noodle or chicken and stars, that kinda thing.
So I never had tomato soup. It seems like something I would like. I love tomatoes, tomato sauces, ketchup, most anything you can do with tomatoes. But so far, I've never tried a tomato soup that I liked!! And I only started trying tomato soup as a tomato loving adult. So it really is disappointing that I haven't found one that I like.
The Old School Grilled Cheese Sandwiches of my youth were most likely served with chips... on a paper towel!
Anyway... I thought the Old School Grilled Cheese Sandwich was deserving of it's very own post!
So there you have it!!
