Grilled Cheese Sticks

    While most would think grilled cheese is as simple as a plastic wrapped square of American sandwiched in slices of wonder bread, the business of grilling cheese has gotten much more complicated and quite frankly, controversial.

    For many sensitive issues there seems to be black, white and whole bunch of gray, but according to my recent poll, grilled cheese beliefs tend to be all black or white, with no gray.

    Grilled cheese sticks fall under the purists category. While they are cut into matchstick lengths for easier handling and dipping, they are nothing but three slices of varied cheddar cheese smashed between lightly buttered Italian bread. 

    There are even some grilled cheese purists who might say that having three cheese violates the terms of a real grilled cheese sandwich, claiming only a slice of American can be a true grilled cheese. Personally, I don’t care for processed American cheese, so mine are nearly always something else. 

    They also beleive that if the recipe has anything else in it other than cheese, it is no longer a grilled cheese sandwich. Just a sandwich. Or even a panini if you happened to use a press.

    One could also argue that mayonnaise should be used instead of butter, but I prefer butter. Your choice, no judgement from me. 

    I serve my grilled sticks with a side of Creamy Tomato Soup when at a sit down meal or with a small cup at a party. You can also serve them with a side of Tomato Jam for slathering.

    They can be an entree, appetizer or snack. Whatever your heart desires!

    Tools for making Grilled Cheese Sticks:

    Heavy Bottom Frying Pan– this will be one of your most used kitchen tools. Having something that is heavy bottom will distribute heat better and prevent burning whether you are using an electric or gas range. 

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
