During those days when you don't have enough time to cook something elaborate or you're just not in the mood to stay in the kitchen for a long time, there's an answer: a grilled cheese sandwich. In only a few minutes you will have a delicious treat, however there are some details that can make your creation taste even better. For this reason at Great Harvest in Austin, we prepared the following post containing some useful tips to prepare this delicacy.


You can use your favorite bread to prepare you sandwich, just remember that it shouldn't be too sweet or too sour. Keep in mind that thinner slices will allow your cheese melt faster and remember to use a non stick skillet.


Keep in mind that thick slices of cheese will take longer to melt, which can burn your sandwich. Try instead to grate it and use plenty of it; don't forget that cheddar is prefered by many people, but you can always mix different cheeses for richer flavor.


Forget about putting butter directly into the pan, you should butter the bread instead. This will give you a crispy texture without the bread burning. Keep in mind that some people also use mayonnaise, this is entirely up to you.


Preheat your stove and place your sandwich on the pan, remember to keep an eye on your treat otherwise it may burn. Another trick is putting your sandwich in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese completely.
