Tested till perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

This uses the classic cheese – Cheddar, but you can try any other kind that melts well. For a change, omit the mustard and spread the bread with black olive tapenade or pesto. Instead of onion, add roasted red pepper or, for meat lovers, ham or prosciutto.
