Before running to the nearest sandwich shop in hopes of finding your taste buds’ cheesy soul mate, consider this: Grilled cheese is one of the easiest (and cheapest!) sandwiches you can make at home. This iconic sandwich just may be the ultimate in versatility. Dress it up with fresh figs or pulled short ribs, or keep things simple with nothing more than quality cheddar. Whichever direction you go in, the same satisfaction will result. It’s also easy to transform the bread-and-cheese confections from simple to gourmet—meaning they’re ideal to entertain both kids and foodies.
