A perfectly prepared cheese sandwich - crispy, creamy, and rich - is a dish that is impossible to pass up. There are many ways to make them, but if you want everything to go by the book, you should follow the basic principles.

Golf.com writes: "Like any other dish, a grilled cheese sandwich is only as good as the ingredients. It may cost a little more, but you'll be happy with the result. So start with the best bread, cheese, and butter you can find."

SSPDaily prepared some useful tips and recipes for making this dish.

Make a double sandwich

Put cheese on both pieces of bread. This will help the sandwich stay together.

Cook in a preheated oven

Arrange the bread on a baking sheet, cover each piece with cheese, and put it all in a 350-degree oven for a few minutes, then finish cooking the sandwich in the pan.

The best skillet for sandwiches

For making cheese sandwiches, we recommend using a cast iron skillet, which retains heat perfectly and creates a crispy golden crust.

Keep an eye on the heat level

If you don't want to burn the butter or bread, cook your sandwiches over moderate or even low heat. To improve the flavor, you can replace butter with ghee or light olive oil.

Use a press

If you have another heavy skillet, place it on the sandwich while it's frying. The weight will help to maintain the shape and crispness. Alternatively, you can use a brick wrapped in foil.

The All-American sandwich

Take quality rustic white bread and real American cheese

While the bread and cheese are warming in the oven, melt one tablespoon of butter (or heat one tablespoon of vegetable oil) in a cast iron skillet. Assemble the sandwich and press it into the pan with a spatula to absorb some of the oil or cream. After 30 seconds, turn it over and put the pan in the oven.

The idea is to toast the bread and melt the cheese, but not to overcook it.

The Spanglish

This version of the cheese sandwich includes the use of rustic bread, tomato, bacon, lettuce, mayonnaise, fried egg and, of course, Spanish cheese - Manchego, which turns the dish into a masterpiece of culinary art.

Double Dutch

This sandwich should be cooked on the grill.

Take pumpernickel bread and Dutch hard cheese made from cow's milk - gouda. If you want to get it right, add caramelized onions (finely chopped and fried over low heat), which will add a sweet and salty flavor to the sandwich and make the taste of the Double Dutch deeper.

Neapolitan

This is a close relative of panini. First, sprinkle both sides with mozzarella cheese. After warming in the oven, add basil leaves and chopped tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper, and then fry in a pan as you did before.
