I realize that having "Advanced" and "Basics" in the same title might seem a bit contradictory, but the good ol' grilled cheese is about as basic as it gets. Using technique and flavorful ingredients, we'll try and put some fun spins on this after-school classic, hopefully without upsetting the purists!

Is it cheating to make the cheese different I wonder
professornuke 7 hours ago
"The vast majority of cheeses don't melt as well as American." American what? I know there's a thing people from the USA call American Cheese, but....I'm pretty sure the rest of the world doesn't consider it to be cheese. Is that what you meant? It's some yellow stuff, but, I wouldn't dignify it by calling it cheese.

Chef John's inside-out grilled cheese is so perfect. It's the only way I've made grilled cheese since that video's release. Although I follow his method a little more closely that Babby 😜

Is it still a grilled cheese if it's dipped in tomato soup after cooking, or is it a soup melt? If I put a grilled cheese sandwich in the grilled cheese, is it a grilled cheese melt?

Setting the sandwich on a wire drying set was genius. I always get annoyed when it's soggy, so I appreciate this tip lol

"Golden brown" is an undercooked grilled cheese. For a proper grilled cheese, you want just a little bit of char on the outside. It just doesn't taste right without it.

Cheese shredded off of a block is always better for melting than preshredded because it doesn't have the edible talcum powder they put on bagged shredded cheese.

Ok, I'm sorry, WHAT. 7:28 there are store-bought caramelized onions? That just sounds... wrong. One of the first things my parents taught me to do to help out with dinners was caramelize the onions. I had no idea you could get pre-caramelized, and will likely.... ///never/// do so.

The best grilled cheese (variation) I ever had, was with haggis called "the Bruiser" in a great shop called "melt" in Aberdeen, Scotland. It was amazing although afterwards I always felt like lying down.

I feel like the fact that Babish puts the extra cheese in the middle instead of immediately snacking may be a sign of being a sociopath.

Every time I watch an episode like this I am re-devastated about being lactose intolerant, and then I remember that Andrew is also lactose intolerant, and then I spend the latter half of the episode worrying about him. No amount of Lactaid in the world would help me digest these wonderful grilled cheese creations.
