Introduction: Grilled Cheese Experiment

Greetings Folks, This is my first Instructable.

This idea came about from two ideas when I was hungry. My first experiment happened one day while I was foraging for food in the refrigerator. I ran across two pieces of French Toast and a hamburger. Being a culinary daredevil, I slapped the meat patty between the French Toast and chowed downed. The experiment wasn't to bad taste wise and it was filling (It hit the stomach like a load of bricks.) This got me to thinking “What other things could I make French Toast like?” One answer Is Grilled Cheese.

Step 1: Ingredients/tools

2 slices of bread

2 slices of pepper jack cheese or cheese of choice.

1 teaspoon of garlic

1/4 cup of water or milk (was out of milk)

a skillet

small pan big enough to fit a slice of bread

Fork or Whisk

a spatula

Plate

Step 2: Grab Your Eggs

In a Pan, Crack two eggs add ¼ cup
water or milk

Beat vigorously with fork or whisk until uniformly yellow

stir in garlic.

Step 3: Soak

Add butter to skillet then pre heat the skillet

soak bread in egg mixture flip so that both sides are coated.

then fry bread in skillet

Step 4: Flip Bread Add Cheese

Once the side 1 of both pieces of bread are a golden brown flip and add cheese on top (forgot to take picture of cheese ontop.)

Step 5: Fold Together

Fold together your sandwich and make sure your cheese slices are kissing in a passionate embrace.

transfer to plate.

Step 6: Conclusion

Conclusion: Things I have learned

This sandwich is very hot, and needs to sit a bit before eating

Pepper jack cheese does not photograph well

I should check frozen cheese slices for freezer burn before using in an experiment.

The texture of the sandwich is a little weird.

The sandwich at best tries to pass itself off as a quiche, at worst a soggy sandwich.

If I repeat this, I might try filling with sliced olives, sliced mushrooms, red bell pepper,(anything that fits in an omelet) adding salt to egg mixture.

One other thing I recently found out when I was with my mother recently is that I have a tendency to over soak the bread when I make french toast. I probably did the same thing when making this experiment. So that might also effect the results.

I have been tossing this idea around in the back of my brain to get the crunch one might try only soaking one side of the bread then grilling the dry side using butter I have not tried this yet.

Sounds pretty good, unique, but tasty! You'll have to keep us up to date on your experimentations, I'd love to hear how it did with sliced olives! Thanks for sharing!
