It’s an oldie but a goody. (And why is oldie spelled with ie but goody spelled with a y?)
I had one child with an unspecific “not feeling well” and another who was “dead tired.” Times called for comfort food. I’ve played around with grilled cheese sandwiches before. Tonight we just did traditional ones. I did use a mix of American cheese and Cheddar because I had some white American cheese that needed using up. I also like a mix of Cheddar and Jack. Or just plain Cheddar.
I know it’s not the healthiest but as with BLT’s, some sandwiches call out for white bread.
So good cheese, white bread, and a bit of butter if you’re being traditional and you’ve got a good grilled cheese sandwich. My only slight trick with these is that after spreading the butter on the bread, when I lay it on the griddle I give it a minute to melt good and then I move the sandwich around in small circles for a few seconds to spread that melted butter around.
And tomato soup. I don’t get fancy. Campbell’s made with milk instead of water.
Oh, and if I have them, I serve bread and butter pickles with the grilled cheese. If I don’t, I split my sandwich apart and spread some pickle relish in there.
For those of you with kids, I freeze any leftover sandwiches and my girls love to take them to school for lunch. Don’t ask me. Sounds gross. They like them.
