Try to Make It Through These 20 Grilled Cheeses Without Craving One

Making the perfect grilled cheese is like coming of age in the kitchen. When you finally learn how to get beautiful, crisp crust with melty cheese on the inside, slicing open your sandwich into triangles is the most satisfying thing in the world. It's not hard to make one of the best grilled cheeses out there, whether you prefer a classic white bread with American cheese style or a decadent sourdough sandwich with three different types of cheese.

Of course, mayonnaise is the trick to creamy, melty grilled cheeses because it has a higher burn temperature than butter, allowing your bread to turn golden in the pan without burning before the cheese is ready. Now that we've covered that mini lesson on how to make the best grilled cheese you can, let's look at some contenders. Double dog dare you to get through these photos without craving a cheesy, buttery grilled cheese, too.
