How do you cook your grilled cheese sandwiches? Traditionally, grilled cheese cooked in butter.  Did you know top chefs make grilled cheese with mayo.

A chef friend of mine told me the secret to get that really nice golden, crispy bread in a grilled cheese sandwich is to make the grilled cheese with mayo. You spread a little mayo on the outside the bread, then place the sandwich in the hot butter, mayo side down.

The mayo just gives the grilled cheese sandwich a nice golden color and enhances the taste. I tried it and now I am hooked on making grilled cheese with mayo.
