Grilled Cheese McD's Way....

It occurred to me the other day while I made my lunch on a chilly afternoon, that you may not be properly enlightened on your grilled cheese sandwiches.

I know. It's what you've been missing all your life, and I'm about to make it right. You'll thank me.

You might not remember the good old days when a Happy Meal choice was grilled cheese and milk (something halfway healthy!).

If one didn't know that, then one might not know that a person can get the best (non-soggy!) grilled cheese by using a hamburger bun like McD's did. I'm sure that their reason was that they could use up their day-old buns (smart idea!) that they purchased in bulk, and that it would give kids and parents another meal choice.

Well....I buy my buns at Sam's in sets of sixteen and those days long ago when we'd order a grilled cheese happy meal are all gone, for some unknown reason they dropped it, which makes no sense, because a bowl of their soup and a hot grilled cheese would be great on a winter day.

No worries. I can still make my own McD's grilled cheese. I've never forgotten how good they were and yes, you can make them too.

All you do is lightly butter the inside of the bun, lay on the cheese (whatever and however much you like!) and grill to perfection. NEVER will you have a soggy, sunken middle of your sandwich.

Your life will be complete as you eat it with your favorite mug of hot soup. YUM.

Oh, and you're welcome!

Gosh, I don't remember ever getting a grilled cheese there but wow what a great idea because yes, the middle is usually goopy and droopy!!I miss the old neon signs with the waiter guy waving and seeing the MILLIONS sold...I feel old all of a sudden, Maybe I'll make a grilled cheese on a bun to cheer me up!!

I don't remember McD's ever having grilled cheese. That simply sounds too healthy for them. Must have only been on the menu a week or two before they discovered their mistake!!
