Sorry for the delay in approving comments between yesterday and today! I’ve had a couple of appointments that took me out of the office.
But what a response it has been! Apparently, I’m not the only one in Roanoke who is passionate about grilled cheese sandwiches.
Here’s a rundown of the great tips you all shared:
1. Consider serving grilled cheese with macaroni and cheese. Well, on my desert island (providing that nutrition isn’t important), that would be my perfect meal. With cheesy puffs, of course.
2. Try the French version, a croque monsieur: stack up gruyere cheese and ham, dip sandwich in egg batter and fry in butter. Mmmmmm. A croque madame is the same sandwich but with a fried egg on top.
3. Toast your bread before grilling for maximum crispiness.
4. Add mild, pickled banana peppers to the sandwich. I’ve also heard of folks stuffing dill chips inside the sandwich before cooking.
