The Mousetrap

Grilled Cheese 342F

The Mousetrap – A toasted sandwich, grilled cheese sandwich, cheese toastie, or grilled cheese is a hot sandwich made with one or more varieties of cheese on bread. Spreading a mixture of mayo and butter on the bread creates a delightfully crispy crust with the well-loved, wonderful flavor of butter one expects on a grilled cheese sandwich. After rigorous scientific testing for this best-ever grilled cheese, we’ve determined that sandwiches sliced in half on a diagonal actually taste better.

Serve this wonderful sandwich with some Parma Rosa Tomato Soup, regular Tomato Soup or some James Beard’s Garlic Soup.
