So why cast iron skillet you might ask?

The secret to the best grilled cheese is having a super hot surface that conducts heat really well.

That’s exactly what a cast iron skillet does. It’s a thick, heavy, inexpensive pan that is indispensable in the kitchen. It’s a work horse whose benefits are worth the little bit of extra loving you need to give it.

A cast iron skillet will last a lifetime if you season it properly & give it a little TLC. Here are a few posts to help you with that.

Have fun with your cheese selections. In these sandwiches I used Asiago with rosemary & medium cheddar slices.

Using pre-sliced cheese is very easy & a time saver, but most of the higher quality cheeses are obviously in wedges, rounds & blocks. If hand trimming then be sure to cut each slice no thicker than 1/4 inch ~ so it melts quickly & completely.

No matter how you slice it…..you will no doubt love this crispy, buttery & gooey cheesy sandwich.
