I’ve just discovered from the folks at CNN.com that today is a very day… Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!

From simple sandwiches served alongside plain tomato soup in school cafeterias to esoteric masterpieces created in high-end restaurants, the grilled cheese is ubiquitous in American cuisine.  There are endless recipes using every variety of bread and cheese.  Everyone I know has their particular favorite and they are pretty adamant about defending their version as “the best”.

And… in case you’re wondering, my basic grilled cheese is “the best”!  I will, however, admit that I like to experiment and try new recipes and there are many very good ones out there.

Alex’s Basic Grilled Cheese

  • 2 slices white bread (I use Pepperidge Farms)
  • 3 slices American cheese (do not use cheese food or cheese product)
  • olive oil
  1. Put about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small frying pan and heat over medium heat.
  2. Assemble sandwich and place in frying pan.
  3. Cook until one side is golden brown.
  4. Using a spatula, lift sandwich out of pan, add another 2 tablespoons of oil.
  5. Flip sandwich and cook until second side is golden brown.
  6. Remove from pan and enjoy!!
