The Grilled Cheese Sandwich has been an iconic staple food for generations in American households. The recipe has remained largely unchanged since its humble beginnings in the 1920’s but for a paradigm shift that took place in the 1960’s, when the top slice of bread became common, and the modern notion of a grilled cheese sandwich was born.
Generally comprised of nothing more than butter and cheese sandwiched in between 2 slices of bread, the quaint grilled cheese, in all its uninspiring glory, continues to attract a cult-like following long after the good ole’-griddle days in momma’s kitchen.
Fast forward nearly 100 years later and the lackluster recipe scores a much-needed reboot, courtesy of a nostalgically trendy gourmet grilled cheese shop named New York Grilled Cheese Company. Transforming a seemingly ordinary recipe, this extraordinary restaurant concept dishes out a dramatic makeover, inside and out, taking the classic grilled cheese out of the frying pan and into the… waffle press?
