Grilled Cheese Sandwich Secrets

When you’re too busy or exhausted to cook or you need a hit of comfort food, a grilled cheese sandwich is salvation. Quicker and cheaper than take-out pizza, it offers the same gooey, crispy goodness in an easy-to-eat package. Add some carrot sticks or a tossed salad, and a great grilled cheese makes for a simple and fast weeknight dinner that’s even “balanced.”

At its most basic, a grilled cheese takes only three ingredients — bread, cheese and butter (or mayonnaise; more on this later) — so how could anyone possibly mess it up? The fact is that when it comes to something so elemental, small mistakes have a major effect on the final product.
