You’re Making Grilled Cheese Sandwiches All Wrong And You Need To Stop

Let Alton Brown show you the light.

1. Wow.

For ease of reference, the steps have been outlined below.

2. This is Alton Brown, and he wants to teach you something very important.

“When I say griled cheese sandwich, I mean a grilled sandwich containing grilled cheese.”

3. Yes, you DO need a charcoal grill. Because this is serious business.

4. You need bread, and two cheeses: extra sharp Cheddar and Gruyère – 3oz of each.


5. You’re going to need mustard, paprika, and black pepper. Add to the cheese.

To be precise: 1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.

6. Put the cheese in specially adapted foil grill spatulas, off direct heat, for 6-9 minutes.

7. Oil up your bread, and put it on direct heat for a couple of minutes each side. Then slide the cheese on your toasted bread, wrap the sandwich in foil and put on indirect heat for a couple of minutes.


8. And that, my friends, is how you actually make a grilled cheese sandwich.

9. Reminder: cheese is amazing.

10. It really is.
