Cast Iron Skillet Grilled Cheese
July 23, 2014
Sometimes simple is best. Actually around here simple is pretty much always in season, no matter what time of year. Do you own a cast iron skillet? I hope the answer is yes. If not, you kinda need one like now. Cast Iron Skillet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches have become my go-to meal.
Those of you who know me well, know that I love a hot & melty grilled cheese sandwich. Especially after a hike…
So why cast iron skillet you might ask?
The secret to the best grilled cheese is having a super hot surface that conducts heat really well. That’s exactly what a cast iron skillet does. It’s a thick, heavy, inexpensive pan that is indispensable in the kitchen. It’s a work horse whose benefits are worth the little bit of extra loving you need to give it.
Have fun with your cheese selections. In these sandwiches I used Asiago with rosemary & medium cheddar slices.
Using pre-sliced cheese is very easy & a time saver, but most of the higher quality cheeses are obviously in wedges, rounds & blocks. If hand trimming then be sure to cut each slice no thicker than 1/4 inch ~ so it melts quickly & completely.
Enjoy 1/2 a sandwich for a mini-meal & a full one for lunch or dinner. No matter how you slice it…..you will no doubt love this crispy, buttery & gooey cheesy sandwich.
