I usually make my grilled cheese with a few slices of American cheese and maybe some slices of cheddar or Colby Jack thrown in as well. Nothing wrong with that and it is tasty, but this time I wanted to amp it up a bit. I used some good quality (but not overly expensive) white cheddar, Colby Jack and some shredded parmesan. I also decided to butter the bread a different way. Instead of spreading the butter onto the bread itself, I plunked down some little knobs of butter on the griddle, waited for it to melt, then added the bread right into the melted puddles of butter. The result was this glorious, toasty bread that had this wonderful blend of cheeses that melted and mingled together to form a gooey, cheesy center of deliciousness.
This ultimate grilled cheese is defiantly a game changer from your ordinary grilled cheese. It’s even better paired with your favorite soup, a salad or just devour it by itself. You might want to make sure that you buy plenty of cheese because you will be wanting more.
Here’s what you need.
*Sliced bread; I used Italian that was not thickly sliced. I feel that bread that is too thick kind of takes away from the cheese.
*Sliced white cheddar
*Sliced Colby Jack
Heat a non stick griddle on medium heat. Place butter onto the griddle where each sandwich will go.
When the butter melts, place a slice of the bread onto the butter. Make sure to rub it in the butter so the bread is completely coated.
Place both pieces of sliced cheese onto the bread, then top with the shredded parmesan.
If the bread begins to turn dark, but the cheese is not melting, turn down the heat.
Lift the sandwich with a spatula and add more dots of butter and melt. Turn the sandwich over and continue to cook on the other side making sure the bread is coated in the melted butter.
