Grilled cheese sandwich
The simplest thing, right? It IS possible to make a bad grilled cheese sandwich. I made a delicious one last night, with fresh-baked bread.
Start with two big slices of bread, and toast them. Meanwhile, grate some high-quality Gruyere cheese. When the bread is toasted, butter it well, on both sides, and layer the grated cheese in the middle.
Get a skillet really hot, and drop a pat of butter in. Grill the sandwich on both sides, until golden brown, and the cheese is melty.
Serve hot, with a little salad on the side, and a nice glass of wine.
