The best thing to eat it with differs by the person’s taste. So now, we begin the making of your grilled cheese sandwich.

The Bread

The bread is the foundation of the sandwich. Because is the first thing you bite into. If you toast your bread, it won’t hold the butter, as well as non-toasted bread. If you want less bread and more cheese, or the other way around, get thinner or thicker sliced bread. The bread makes or breaks your sandwich.

The cheese holds the sandwich altogether. There are many kinds of cheese, for example, cheddar, Monterey jack, Swiss, and American. Different cheeses also differs the taste of the sandwich. The best cheese to use differs by the person’s taste. The cheese that you love should always be in your grilled cheese sandwich.

    Gosh, why am I suddenly aching for a grilled cheese sandwich? Those photos look so scrumptious!

    I sometimes like a thin slice of ham on my grilled cheese sandwich, but most of the time I just want dill pickles on the side (not on the sandwich, they cool the cheese down too fast).

    Great guest post! More, please!

    Sorry… Using the iPad creates typos. It was suppose to read “in keeping with dirtywithclass” above.
