GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH – College Dorm-Style
By Gloria Pitzer, as seen in… Gloria Pitzer’s Cookbook – The Best of the Recipe Detective (Balboa Press; Jan. 2018, p. 187). [A revised reprint of Gloria Pitzer’s Better Cookery Cookbook (Secret RecipesTM, St. Clair, MI; May 1983, 3rd Edition).]
Butter both sides of 2 slices of bread. Slip a slice of American cheese between them. Wrap it up in a piece of kitchen foil. Set your steam iron on “cotton” and press each side of the sandwich firmly with the hot iron, allowing about 2 to 3 minutes per side. It’s perfectly permissible to open one end of the foil to check the degree of “doneness” and continue until it suits you.
If Paul would have been content with a steady diet of grilled cheese sandwiches and lunch meats, the rest of our married life, I would have seen no need for even having a stove. But we do all have our peculiar preferences and there was no way that I could master bean soup with the steam iron, so I resorted to a stove and had to learn how to use it over the years. But that’s marriage for you!
