Quite Possibly the World’s Most Perfect Food
It’s 1am as I begin to write this post. I was all set to fill up the page with snark and wit…that is until my GTHC chants fell upon deaf ears in Detroit tonight. Oh well, it was not the most unexpected win of all time, but that doesn’t dappen my depression.
With that behind us, I will now explain my newfound ability to cook the world’s simplest food…the gilled cheese sandwich.
If there is one thing about Endless Simmer that you might have learned by now, it is that we are not below admitting that sometimes we don’t know what we are doing. This is one of those cases. I live in a world without microwaves (going on 3 years now) and I have never made a grilled cheese. And while Gansie tried to convince me that it was just not that hard, putting bread on a pan just seemed like it was asking for trouble. I could already smell the burning.
Turns out though, and don’t tell Gansie this, making a grilled cheese is so easy Tyler Hansbrough could do it (maybe). What follows is a perfect example of why I write on this blog anonymously.
Put cheese on bread (this is cheddar):
Put butter on pan, about a tablespoon (yes, that’s a lot):
Cook sandwich (on low/medium heat, cover to keep heat in):
Eat gooey cheese:
