eggs-grilled-cheese-sandwich-0249Comfort, comfort food. I don’t think there’s a word other than “comfort” to describe the wonders of melting cheese. Simple as that, if there’s food that can melt my heart and console my soul, this is cheese that is left to pass from solid to gooey status. Not to mention I really need to forget about calories, sometimes. Or stop crying over brown chickpeas that never cook, as solid as stones and as tasty as dog kibbles.

eggs-grilled-cheese-sandwich-0243Not any cheese will make me happy, though (once I asked my Parmesan to melt… no way). At the expense of a few sandwiches, I learnt what a “meltable” cheese is and how to make it mellow and running after a few minutes under the grill. As always, I wait impatiently close to the oven, staring at it (I’m so grateful to the guy who “invented” the light in the oven!), and just like a student that gets to grips with his very first chemistry experiment,  I observe the magic transition from solid to “melted cheese”. A surprising culinary moment before the delectable bites.


Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich


  • 3 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons whole milk
  • 4 slices sandwich bread
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare the scramble eggs by cracking the eggs into a mixing bowl. Heat a heavy-bottomed nonstick pan over medium-low heat, then dd half teaspoon of butter and let it melt.
  • Add the milk to the eggs and season to taste with salt and pepper, then whisk well.
  • When the butter in the pan is hot, pour in the eggs. Don't stir but let the eggs cook for up half a minute or until the bottom starts to set. With a spatula, start stirring moving the egg into the center of the pan. Repeat until there's little liquid left (do not overcook).
  • Set aside while you assemble the sandwich.
  • Butter one side of each slice of bread with the remaining butter.
  • Place the slices of bread on a baking tray, top two of them with the eggs, cheese and grill in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until brown and toasted. Out of the oven, add spinach and top with other slice of bread.
