Add mango chutney or caramelized onions to your grilled cheese for extra flavor. Food blogger Marc Matsumoto shares his tips for making a perfect grilled cheese in a full post on the Fresh Tastes blog.

Ingredients

  • 60 grams (2.1 ounces) gruyere cheese, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon potato starch
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 slices of good quality sandwich bread
  • 1 tablespoon mango chutney (or caramelized onions)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, toss the cheese together with the potato starch.
  2. Drizzle half of the olive oil onto one slice of bread. Spread it around with a spoon, and then put the bread, oiled side down, in a skillet. Top the bread with the shredded cheese, being careful not to spill too much onto the pan.
  3. On your other slice of bread, spread the mango chutney onto one side. Place the bread, chutney-side down, onto the cheese.
  4. Drizzle the remaining olive oil onto the top of the sandwich, and spread it around with a spoon. Place a flat-bottomed plate on top of the sandwich, then put the skillet on the stove over medium low heat.
  5. Grill the sandwich until the bottom surface is evenly brown, then flip the sandwich over, place the weight back on the sandwich, and grill the other side until evenly browned
