A grilled cheese sandwich is one of those comfort foods that will remind you of your childhood.
But if the grilled cheese that you make doesn’t taste quite like what your mom used to prepare, it may be missing a key ingredient: mayonnaise.
Don’t believe us? Even Martha Stewart swears by it!
Use mayo instead of butter for the best grilled cheese
Step 1: Spread mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip if you’d like) on two slices of bread. Skip the butter!
Step 2: Place one piece of bread into the pan with the mayo side down. Add your choice of cheese.
Step 3: Put the second slice of bread on top with the mayo side up. Let the bottom slice of bread cook on low to medium heat for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Flip the sandwich over and wait until the other side is golden brown.
Step 4: Plate it up and enjoy the most delicious grilled cheese sandwich you’ve had in ages!
