The Most Beautiful Grilled Cheese I've Ever Seen Only Has Three Ingredients

Ain't it a beaut?

Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of those foods that have gotten a little lost in how fancy they can be. Sure, you can slap some short ribs or shellfish between two slices of bread with some cheese, but do you really need to?

Does it make it better? Or does it just make your sandwich fancier?

The best grilled cheese I've ever seen (and one of the best I've ever eaten -- what can I say, I'm not that great of a cook) only had three ingredients: extra sharp Cheddar, butter and white bread. Check out the video after the jump.

Yeah, the video is kind of old, but oh, my Maillard Reaction, I'm so hungry.

I have only made grilled cheesies like this, but I also add mayonnaise. But yeah - keep it simple, always the best way to make them. I'm getting hungry!

A friend of mine tipped me off to using mayo instead of butter. Turns out it's pretty good.

Simple Grilled Cheese Sandwich is one of my favorite comfort foods. I have to say, I do make a pretty awesome "Green Goddess" Grilled Cheese though (steamed kale, pesto, and avocado). :)

I feel fairly sure if it has any other main ingredients, it's no longer called a grilled cheese.

Wow I actually just made a grilled cheese with Havarti the other day and it was fabulous. The only difference is that I used Jalapeno Havarti,.....it gave it a nice little kick. Soooo tasty!!!


PS- Havarti is one of my favorite cheesesĀ
