The secret to the best grilled cheese doesn’t involve butter at all.
The Secret To The Best Grilled Cheese
From the recipe collection of Tara Ippolito
Do you know the secret to the best grilled cheese?
You’d think something like a grilled cheese would be pretty straight forward.
Buttered bread and some cheese toasted up in a skillet and you’re done, right?
What if I told you to ditch the butter and use mayonnaise instead.
Yup, mayonnaise. You’ve never had a crispier crust or more flavorful grilled cheese then this.
The mayo browns up the bread so evenly and gives such a nice flavor.
Even if you’re not a mayonnaise fan, you’ve gotta try this.
You really can’t taste the mayo at all and it will be the most evenly cooked grilled cheese you’ve ever had.

A Grilled cheese Tips
Aside from using mayonnaise instead of butter to make your grilled cheese, here’s another great tip.
Take the cheese out and let it get close to room temperature before adding it to the sandwich if you’re using sliced.
This will just help the cheese melt faster and more evenly.
If you happen to be using shredded cheese, be sure to shred the cheese yourself.
Prepackaged bags of shredded cheese contain chemicals that prevent the cheese from melting properly.
- Mayonnaise of your choice except Miracle Whip.
- Bread of your choice
- American Cheese or whatever cheese you like
First, you’ll need to assemble the grilled cheese. Just like you’ve done 100 times before, I’m sure. Two slices of bread and cheese in the middle.
Next take a little mayonnaise and spread it on both outer sides of the bread.
After that add it to a hot pan.
Next brown the grilled cheese on both sides until the crust looks perfectly golden.
Now you’re ready to try the greatest grilled cheese that you’ve ever had. Enjoy.
