What do you have on hand to cook without going to the grocery store?

Bread + butter + cheese = Grilled Cheese! (Maybe add mustard or mayo.)

Not only is this easy and healthy, it’s delicious on a cold winter day.

And here are a couple of tips to try to make your best grilled cheese ever today.

1) Grilled your bread on both sides. “Grill two slices of bread in butter, flip’em over so that the browned sides are facing up, add your cheese, and close your sandwich so that the cheese is sandwiched between the browned surfaces. Not only will this get you better tasting bread infused with more butter, but it’ll also give your cheese a head start on getting extra-melty.”

2) Spread mayonnaise on the outside. Yes. Outside. “…mayonnaise doesn’t go in your grilled cheese sandwich, it goes on top of it. Chefs of all stripes swear by this trick (Gabrielle Hamilton and Paula Deen both approve), which involves slathering the top and bottom of a grilled cheese sandwich with the creamy condiment—just as one normally would use butter—before sautéing the sammie in a hot pan.”
