I recently picked up a new hobby: cooking. And, I am going to share with you my grilled cheese recipe.
Two slices of white (sourdough or Tuscan pane is okay too) bread. Buy a and good-quality one like Japanese Shokupan).
Sharp cheddar cheese (or, better yet, truffle Gouda cheese)
Preheat your skillet on medium heat (you can start with medium-hot and lower it shortly after). Wait for around 2 minutes for your skillet to heat up and put a LITTLE bit of olive oil on it.
While waiting for your oil to heat up, prepare your bread and butter. Start by spreading a generous amount of butter on 1 side of each slice of bread. Season the buttery side of the bread with a bit of salt and a generous amount of pepper.
Once your skillet is hot, put the buttery side of the bread down on the skillet.
Grab your olive oil and spray some of it onto the non-buttery side of the bread. Season this other side with salt and pepper as well.
Once the buttery side has turned slightly brown, flip the bread slices over and grill the other side (until it’s slightly brown as well). Note that you do not want to fully grill both sides, because we are going to flip it again 1 more time before adding the cheese.
Flip both slices again, and, now, add two slices of cheddar cheese on top of one bread slice and sandwich it with the other bread slice. Make sure that the buttery side is the outer side.
Wait a couple minutes for the cheese to fully melt. Flip over the sandwich a couple more times to make sure that both sides are fully grilled (and crunchy).
