When it comes to comfort food, there isn't much that can beat a classic grilled cheese sandwich! Whether that simple classic with bread and cheese or a more involved version adding meats, veggies or unique cheese varieties, grilled cheese is a favorite.
Those sandwiches of ooey goodness are one of the first foods kids will agree to eat consistently (it's still the reliable standby for my nephew). But, unlike other childhood favorites like dry cheerios and chopped hot dogs, it's one we continue to love as adults!
When it comes to making the perfect grilled cheese, what you use to cook it is key. While some people swear by a fancy sandwich press, I think the very best sandwiches are made on a standard square griddle.
The square makes it easy to fit 4 sandwiches all at once (ok, maybe only two if you use BIG slices of bread), but it cooks them perfectly and that little bit of a raised edge catches any extra butter or juices that might run out. I love my skillet!
