How does ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwich sound for dinner tonight? Recently I read that Gabriella Hamilton of NYC’s East Village Prune Restaurant finally spilled the beans on what it takes to make a stellar grilled cheese sandwich and I couldn't be more excited about it!
So if you fancy a secret to crispier, faster, better grilled cheese sandwiches, here it is: use mayonnaise instead of butter! It's that simple.
Gabriella swears by it and says it won't burn as quickly as butter, it won't stick to the pan, and it browns and crisps more evenly too. Plus it adds that wonderful richness that we all long for in a grilled cheese sandwich. You just need a few slices of rustic bread, mayonnaise and some shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese - that is all! (Full recipe here).
Can't wait for dinner tonight, you? xo
