How to Make the Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich in the World

I spent some time with the guys from The Foundry, kings of the world’s best grilled cheese sandwich, last weekend at LA Magazine’s Food Event. I’m serious about this sandwich. They even have the trophies to prove it. Check out Josh McKnight as he rocks the grill.

1. Heat pan to pretty darn hot and spread raisin walnut bread with apricot-caper puree and taleggio cheese

 2. Add arugala and tomato confit

3. Add second piece of bread and press down firmly to seal.


4. Keep checking the sandwich until it is just perfect. It may look burnt, but it isn’t.

5. Present it to someone you deem worthy.

I like catfish. Sure, we all like catfish, but I think for me it is somehow deeper.

    Ms. Marascino, your words are so much fun to read and I take my FUN very seriously. And, I love grilled cheese. Excellent blog- can’t wait to read more.

    It looks delicious, but definitely something you’d buy rather than make it home. My current low-tech favorite is the pressed English muffin sandwich: a split muffin filled with grated cheese placed on a greased cast iron pan heated at medium, then weighted with an inverted plate and a can until one side is crisp and lightly browned, flip and repeat. You get a flat sandwich with crispy sides and a moist, tender middle with melted cheese.
