After-School Snack + Give-Away!

What's your go-to after-school snack!?

For me, that's an easy one. Grilled Cheese!! I'm going to show you how to make a 3-Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

Here's what you'll need:

Your Favourite Bread (sliced)

3 of Your Favourite Cheeses, I would suggest something Sharp (I used 3 yr old cheddar), something Stringy (I used Mozzarella), and a Hard cheese that you can grate, for this one, I used Parmesan.

Butter

Frying Pan

Spatula

Microplane or fine grater

Now here's what to do:

Start with your non-stick pan on medium (or just below) heat, and once heated add a pad of butter to melt. Use your spatula to make sure the butter coats the surface of the pan:

While butter is heating up in your pan, slice your cheddar and mozzarella, and butter the outside slices of your bread.

Put slice of bread (butter down) into pan, layer on cheddar and mozzarella slices, top with other piece of bread (buttered side up).

Patience is KEY here. Stay with your pan (don't walk away from the stove). I would recommend 4-ish mins per side. I had my pan covered to keep the steam in and help melt the cheese:

Removed sandwich, and use microplane or fine grater to grate some parmesan directly into the pan.

Place sandwich back down on grated parmesan. Grate some more parmesan on top. Flip at about 2 mins, and finish on second side for another 2.

My friend came over after school, and she said she had already eaten. She tried a bite of this grilled cheese, and then she ate the whole thing!
