Recipe by Chef John
"In my humble opinion, this crispy, crunchy, cheesy masterpiece is the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich. Make sure you follow some basic rules for this to work properly. Only use airy, nutritionally insignificant white bread. Use a nice sharp cheddar and be sure to use a quality non-stick pan over medium to medium-low heat."

shredded extra sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
This was simple to make and delicious. Another excellent recipe from Chef John.
It was delicious but next time i will put the sliced cheese in middle .
This was an extra delish cheesy experience for the comfort food crew. Having the browned cheese with the gooey cheese and the buttery crispy bread, is the perfect meal for any time of the day, but use an especially non stick pan, and if not up the butter if you want the cheese to stay intact. We use all sorts of different cheese, like of course American, Swiss, Pepperocini cheese, Fresh Mozzarella, and the list continues. Sometimes we add fresh tomato, but season first with salt and pepper, or ham, or bacon. I especially like Baby Swiss with Dijon mustard, and crispy pickles chips. Enjoy!
This sandwich is amazing. I didn't think a grilled cheese could be improved but I am mistaken. The cheese on the outside of the bread had an amazing crunch and a different almost smoked tasting flavor and crunch that offset the melted cheese inside. All I can say is wow, I might make another one!
Made grilled cheese like this by accident once upon a time when I tried to over-stuff the sammy w/ cheese and half of it fell back out...it was delicious and now we make them like this on purpose :) delish! The crunch from the cheese on the outside is a wonderful contrast to the gooey inside - try it! Thank you Chef John for taking the time to share this.
Genius! I never thought to add cheese to the outside so that the entire sandwich is browned cheese, bite after bite. Previously, whenever I would make grilled cheese, I'd let some cheese hang off the edge of the sandwich to get browned and crisp and always saved that part for the last bite. To the doubters watch the video - it really is the method that makes this sandwich sooo delicious. Thanks, Chef!
thank goodness for these basic recipes! I've been vegan most of my life, and now gluten free. For the first time in my life I'm dating a meat eater. I have no idea how to cook for him! This and other recipes are keeping him happy, without me having to taste anything!He loved it! thank you!
