|Big the Turkey|
I burn grilled cheese all the time. And set off the smoke alarms. I've tried lower heat, my big griddle . . . I don't know what my problem is. But, thanks to Pinterest, I have a new solution that makes this crazy easy. If you've all discovered this ages ago, sorry (and why didn't you tell me sooner??).
Here's the gamechanger: You're going to make your grilled cheese in the oven and you're going to make 4-6 at once. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it - I use olive oil spray, you can use another non-stick cooking spray, or you could butter it.
Lay one layer of bread and top with the cheese of your choice. Slices are fine and shredded cheese is fine - whatever you have. If you want other fillings, or any other spread on the bread, that's ok too (my husband likes dijon mustard on the bread, basil and a couple kinds of cheese).
Top with another piece of bread. Spray the tops of the bread with more olive oil (or butter them or something). Lay another piece of foil on the top of the sandwiches and then set another baking sheet on top. The heavier the baking sheet, the better. You're basically making a panini press out of them.
Stick it in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Peeking is ok and flipping is not necessary. You want them nice and brown without burning. Mine turned out perfectly!! Brown, crispy on the edges, melty in the middle - yum! It's not a turkey, but it's a legit way to feed the hungry masses. And it goes good with leftover pecan pie or apple pie!
