Trust Us, Your Grilled Cheese Needs An Ice Cube
To prevent making a grilled cheese with overdone bread and cheese that isn't melted, add ice cubes to the pan to create steam that will melt the cheese and soften the bread.
Start by cooking the grilled cheese as normal until both sides of the bread are as crispy and browned as you'd like. Then, turn the heat to the lowest possible setting.
Move the grilled cheese over to the side of the pan, and pop an ice cube into the pan on the other side. Lastly, cover the pan with a lid or foil for a minute.
Alternatively, you can toast the slices first before adding the cheese, close the bread, and place the ice cubes. No matter the method you use, the result will be delicious.
