grilled cheese sandwich recipe

this is one of our favorite breakfast and it does not take much time to make these cheese sandwiches. just use a good fresh loaf of bread or even a day old (either whole wheat or multi grain or oats for a healthier option). if using homemade bread, then don’t slice the bread thickly or thinly.

an important point is also to use a cheese which melts when grilled. basically we are looking for a crisp golden exterior with a smooth melted cheese within. i generally use cheddar cheese to make these sandwiches. you can use regular cheese or even mozzarella cheese or a mix of cheddar and mozzarella. also since we do not like the taste of cheese slices, i always use a block of cheddar cheese, which i then grate and add to the bread.

the butter has to be applied evenly and on the whole slice of the bread. i always use salted butter at room temperature and not melted butter. a generous amount of butter not only adds a lot of flavor and taste but also helps the bread slices to grill and brown evenly.

these grilled cheese sandwiches are spiced with indian spices – roasted cumin powder, chaat masala and freshly crushed black pepper powder. i don’t add salt as the butter and cheese already contains salt. if using unsalted butter, then you can sprinkle some salt.

instead of grilling the sandwiches you can also toast the sandwiches in an electric toaster or a hand held stove top toaster. you can also check this bombay style vegetable cheese toast sandwich recipe.
