How to make the best grilled cheese sandwich:
- Any ordinary pan will do, but a flat-top griddle works best for your cooking surface.
- Instead of slicing your cheese, try grating it for a better texture due to a quicker melt.
- Set the heat on medium-low. At this temperature, the bread will crisp up slowly. This allows the heat to penetrate the cheese and melt it evenly without burning your bread.
