1. Know Your Cheeses
Television personality, comedian and sandwich enthusiast James Cunningham has a simple message: more Canadians should be eating grilled cheese. But even though most of its ingredients can already be found in the kitchen, there’s more to the North American comfort food staple than meets the eye.
According to Cunningham, the classic mistake home cooks make is thinking that any cheese will do. “Once you get into the world of grilled cheese, you’ll discover that the different cheeses have their own melting consistencies and textures,” he says. When it comes to grilled cheese, classic cheddar is hardly your only choice. Mozzarella holds its shape, has a great aroma, and goes well with tomato and avocado. And because of its mixed texture, marble cheese works amazing too. However, Cunningham recommends staying away from crumbly cheeses like feta or goat cheese—they won’t work in your sandwich.
