Welcome back to Cooking Without Whine, our series of teaching videos, helping you prepare fresh and healthy meals at home. If you don't already know– our institutional sized kitchen on the MHAB Life Skills Campus is a space for life skills education, experimental cooking, and of course, a lot of fun. In the MHAB Kitchen, we prepare fresh baked goods, soups, sandwiches, and salads daily. Community dinners and private luncheons are regularly prepared here as well. Our head chef, Trevor, leads the way in providing fresh meals to the community and making sure our MHAB Fresh shop is always stocked with delicious, healthy eats.
Down below is episode number six of Cooking Without Whine, where you can learn from Trevor how to prepare the perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich– all from inside our very own kitchen on MHAB Life Skills Campus. Watch the video to see how Trevor does it, and follow the recipe underneath to make your own at home!
Make your own at home with tips from Trevor below.
Here's what you'll need:
2 Slices of crusty white bread. You can use whatever bread you like, but the crustier and chewier, the better!
3 or so ounces of good-quality cheese. Cheddar or gruyere are excellent choices- or mix them for a little more interest.
Butter, softened so that it spreads easily.
Let's get started:
First, preheat your pan over medium heat. A heavy-bottomed skillet or flat griddle is best. Here at the kitchen, we have an ancient cast-iron griddle which works beautifully. At home, I use a cast-iron skillet.
While your pan is heating up, grate the cheese with the coarse side of your grater.
Butter 1 side of each of the slices of bread and put in the pan butter side down. Then butter the upward=facing side. Allow the bottom to get brown and crispy.
Turn bread crispy side up and cover each slice with the grated cheese.. After the cheese begins to melt, turn one slice onto the other.
Turn sandwich intermittently until both sides are uniformly brown and the cheese begins to ooze a little.
Remove to a board or a plate and enjoy!
That’ll do pig... until next time!
