Who does not love a grilled cheese sandwich. My only problem was I never kept my butter out so it was always hard out of the refrigerator and tore up my bread. Sure I tried putting a dollop in the frying pan for it to melt then put the bread slices on top, but I never achieved a good coating. Then one day I saw my answer on television, I have no idea what show it was anymore, but it worked wonders for me. My savior was mayonnaise. Who would of though something as simple as mayonnaise could work. Well mayonnaise is an egg yolk, spices,an emulsifier and oil. Just what I needed and so much easier to spread. I usually do the classic sliced American Cheese. When I buy my cheese I like to mix it up. One time it will be the yellow American, the next time the white American. I know it’s just a color difference, but we eat with our eyes and change is good.
Do not be afraid to try out the mayonnaise, you will fall in love with it. If you must, replace it with soft butter.
A serving of warm tomato soup brings back so many memories of school days.. . That was so many years ago, we best not go there. . .
