I can’t remember exactly when I began to cook for myself or even make grilled cheese sandwiches. One day, randomly, while sitting at a coffee house that is no longer in business, a girl told me to put garlic salt in the frying pan before actually frying the grilled cheese up.
So, I proceeded to do so.
What was the result?
An amazingly better grilled cheese sandwich.
How many grilled cheese sandwiches I made by putting garlic salt in the oil or butter, I have no idea. They were all equally amazing, time in and time out.
Preferably, I would use French bread and Hoop cheese. This isn’t always available, and truth be told, processed bread does fry up nicely in a skillet. So, many of my grilled cheese sandwiches came thusly.
For many months, I would come home from school, make grilled cheese sandwiches, make hot tea with milk, and watch the TV show Judging Amy.
The process of making grilled cheese is not complicated. Simply heat some oil or butter in a skillet, place cheese between two slices of bread, sprinkle garlic salt into the oil in the pan, and cook the sandwich on medium heat, making sure to flip it after a few minutes to get it golden brown on both sides.
Of course, the likelihood of burning a sandwich is quite high the first several times. Patience in cooking is a necessary virtue to reach Kitchen God (or Goddess) status.
So there you go- the famous Beaux grilled cheese sandwich explanation.
