The Unexpected Ingredient For A Grilled Cheese Cooked To Perfection
By Stacie Adams
Burned bread and unmelted cheese are the last things you want when making a grilled cheese sandwich, but thankfully, all you need to solve these issues is an ice cube.
Simply place an ice cube in the pan with the grilled cheese sandwich as you cook it. The ice will create steam as it melts, resulting in sufficiently melted cheese.
While this will effectively soften the cheese, it won't cause the bread to burn, which is destined to happen if you overcook the outside of the sandwich.
For the best results, keep the ice cube and sandwich separated in the pan to avoid soggy bread. Also, be sure to cover the pan with a lid to generate a good amount of steam.
