Not your second cousin twice removed’s wedding, but hip hip hooray let’s celebrate National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day 2014! Who doesn’t enjoy a good old grilled cheese? There are so many variations, and methods of grilling/cooking this comfort food.
My all time favorite is the Johnny Depp method. Wearing a ric rack trimmed apron in the1993 movie Benny and Joon, Sam cooks a stack of grilled cheese using a hot iron and ironing board. Have you, or do you even know anyone who has tried this method? Whenever I’m thinking grilled cheese, there is never an iron and ironing board handy. Besides, it sort seems like a “only in the movies” thing anyway.
With peaked curiosity look what I found? Real life people cooking the Johnny Depp way. Grilled Cheese Social has a step by step pictorial for those wishing to perfect this method.
Jamie Oliver has his revolutionary unconventional tipped on it’s side toaster way. I see an I hate Jamie Oliver cheesy mess of a toaster here.
The cooking method is up to you. Totally Kids fun furniture & toys has the equipment for cooking up some super good pretend grilled cheese sandwiches.
