I've been wanting to post more kitchen tips and other kitchen related topics to this blog but I've been focusing on recipes. Since I haven't tried any new recipes lately, I thought I'd post this tip for easy grilled cheese sandwiches.
I hate spreading butter onto bread. Mainly because I always forget to take the butter out to soften and trying to spread the cold and hard butter on the bread tears the bread. Sure I could soften it in the microwave, but I usually end up with an entire stick of MELTED butter.
For grilled cheese, I make it the way my Mom always made it for us. With mayonnaise instead of butter. It wasn't until I was in my late teens that I realized that most people used butter for their grilled cheese sandwiches.
You've got to try it! Instead of spreading butter onto the slices of bread, try some mayo! I guess the oils in the mayo keeps the bread from sticking to the pan. It still gets nice and golden brown too, just like a "regular" grilled cheese sandwich. Joe even thinks that the mayo makes it taste creamier than the traditional way.
Here's another tip: For best results, use regular mayonnaise. Don't use lite mayo or miracle whip. The grilled cheese tends to stick when using those types.
