Mayonnaise grilled cheese according to “bon appetit” magazine is the very best. I put it to the test, with what I consider great grilled cheese sandwich makings.
Mayonnaise Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Organic clean & Healthy Home-Made Mayonnaise Video
- Fiscalini hand-crafted, artisan, award winning, farmstead raw milk cheddar cheese
- Alvarado St sprouted Organic whole grain bread
- Straus or Kerrygold sweet butter from pastured cows
- Unrefined Sea salt
Spread a thick layer of mayo on top of bread. Grate 1 once of cheese per sandwich. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high. Place a pat of butter in for each slice. Place mayo covered side of bread on top of butter. Add cheese, and top with a pat of butter, and a couple shakes of salt. Place bread on top, with mayo side up. Flip when toasted. Press a bit with tool. Done when both sides are toasted to your liking. Enjoy! Pairs well with a glass of “Fetzer Gewurztraminer”!
Test conclusion: The mayonnaise added a nice bit of tangy flavor which accentuated the nutty richness of the cheese. The outer crisping was both tender and crunchy, for a more interesting mouth feel. Over all I still prefer my old recipe and method as in this post… Celebrate national Grilled Cheese Day!

The “Bare Foot Contessa uses mayonnaise on the inside slices, where I put butter. Any way you do it have fun and enjoy!
