- What's up guys? Jordan Andino here, and today I'm gonna show you how to make the best, most amazing, mind blowing grilled cheese ever. And, chances are, you already own the one ingredient that will bring this from great to perfection. When I had mayonnaise on a grilled cheese, it blew mymind. Let's get started. So, what you need to do is, take some mayonnaise, and put it on this bread. And guess what? This mayonnaise is not gonna go in with the cheese, it's actually gonna go pan side down. Two slices of cheese on each side. I always use a good, awesome, yellow, sharp cheddar. Then mayonnaise side down, put it flat in the pan. You're gonna melt the cheese, and press it with a spatula. It's also very imperative to have the cheese as flat and covering as much surface area as possible, that way as the mayonnaise cooks, and it steams, it melts the cheese from the bottom coming up. Alright, so, once it's nice and crispy, double check it, golden brown, perfect. Okay. Whoa. Oh my god, look at that. See, the perfect grilled cheese has the right amount of brown, or meyered browning in it, which just means browning, but it has a good saturation, on that mayo, and of course that oozing, melting cheese. I think it's time. Let's try the perfect grilled cheese with... Mayo? Straight up, mind blown.
