Four Foods on Friday #136

From Val's Kitchen
This week there are four questions about grilled cheese.

1. How do you make grilled cheese?I butter the inside and outside of two slices of bread and put 2 slices of cheese in between the bread. Put a pat of butter in a Teflon coated frying pan. Put the sandwich in the pan on medium high heat. Turn after one side is browned and then brown the other side. Cook a few seconds in the microwave to melt the cheese.

2. What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever put on your grilled cheese sandwich and did you like it? I have never deviated from the butter, bread and cheese version.

3. What’s your favorite bread for grilled cheese? Oat bread

4. Have you ever tried to make a grilled cheese sandwich using a shortcut way? (Think iron, car engine, you get the picture.)
I can remember thinking, when my children were little and underfoot a lot, it would be fun to think of some sort of invention to cook lunch while I was busy with the kids. You know, it would do the cooking so I could spend some fun time with my kids. As a kid, I watched The Jetsons cartoon. They had Rosie the Robot who could turn out dinner in a jiffy. I have never actually cooked grilled cheese in any way except in a skillet or the grill. It would be nice to have a robot to do the cooking!

      Lately nutritionists say that cheese can be really harmful as it is a processed food and it can contain plenty of fats. Indeed most types of cheese are really fat, but a fresh piece of cheese has plenty of calcium so it should be good for us and our children. Sometimes I really don’t know what to thing. It seems that every food is harmful.

      Hi Karen – Thanks for recommending Teflon non-stick cookware when making your Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I represent DuPont and it’s always a pleasure to see people recommending our products in their recipes.

      If you are interested in some other recipes or great cookbooks to look at for your blog, drop me an email and I would be glad to help you out! Thanks. Cheers, Sara

      You always made me use the broiler. I always thought that was how everyone made grilled cheese and never understood why mine didn’t taste as good.
