Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Salami Recipe

My favourite way to eat a grilled cheese is with salami on it. You may notice mine is a little thin. That's because I used 2 slices of Weight Watchers multigrain bread, but you can use any bread you like.

For 1 sandwich

2 slices of bread
30 grams of sharp cheddar cheese (3-4 thick slices from the block or 2 slices from the deli)
2 slices of salami (I used Gypsy)

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Place the sandwich cheese side down and cook for about 4 minutes or until golden and the cheese has started to melt. Flip it and cook the other side for another 4 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan and rest for a minute, then cut it in half. Serve with ketchup.


Tip: My mom uses processed cheese slices. They taste good when they get all melted but I still prefer the real cheddar. She also butters both sides of her sandwich before she fries it. Again, YUM, but a much greasier version. It's up to you. If you do decide to butter your bread, be sure to sprinkle on a little granulated garlic for that garlic bread flavour. Or how about switching things up and using ham and swiss? Now I'm starting to drool. Don't be tempted to cook this on high. You'll burn the bread before the cheese has a chance to melt. Be patient.
