It wouldn’t be a grilled cheese sandwich without cheese, and it must be perfectly melted. Whichever type you choose, make sure it’s soft and gooey. Our tip? The more moisture and fat it contains, the better it melts. If you decide to use shredded cheese, it’s always better to shred it yourself, as pre-shredded cheese doesn’t give that “cheesy pull” when cooked.

Some Bonus Tips

While cheese is the main character, bread and toppings are essential. Use thick white bread that will support flavor-packed ingredients. For the toppings, you may go for mashed avocado that blends perfectly with the melted cheese and crunchy bread.

You can also try bacon, brie and jam, or goat cheese and pesto. Spread the outside of the bread slices with mayonnaise to help them cook crispy and not soggy. Don’t use too much heat, and if you use a frying pan, keep the lid over before flipping the sandwich.
