Easy Does It # 25 – Griddle Ham & Cheese Sandwich

>
>
Let’s  face it and admit to the truth – no matter how passionate we are about good food, not all meals we consume must be and can be culinary masterpieces or be completely homemade in order to make us happy.
In cooking, as with love, sometimes a loving hug will do it instead of a few hours of passionate love-making (Well, sometimes…….. 🙂
I have posted some pretty simple stuff in the past and judging by the positive responses, posts about simple food are as welcome as the more complex meals.
So, I feel confident that mixing a few very simple, basic dishes into my usual mix of international food posts will be a welcome addition to the folks who are still learning their way around the kitchen, as well as for the more seasoned cooks who will be reminded that sometimes, depending on our mood, the time and/or budget, simple means best 🙂
I believe today’s dish is a perfect example of how to lift a usually mediocre dish up to new hights by choosing top-ingredients and preparing the food with love and care.

P.S.
If you replace the mayo with the more customary butter and grill the sandwich instead, you will miss out on the best part of this sandwich – the wonderful crust which the mayo helps to provide.

Easy Does It # 7 – Mac & Cheese (Mac & Cheese Recipe # 3784)

>

Dear  Friend’s,
Although most of my followers are culinary professionals, there is also a large segment of followers who are just starting to enjoy cooking on a slightly higher than basic level. I have therefore decided to publish, under the moniker “Easy Does It“,  from time to time some very basic recipe variations of dishes which otherwise might seem complicated to some folks. I will break them down to the easiest, most simple instructions, so that those of you who are intimidated by elaborate recipes will be able to prepare these dishes properly, adjusted to your taste and liking, right from the get-go.
Enjoy :-)

In  anticipation of my splendid dinner to come (you’ll see), I decided to have a very simple late lunch. Before I came to the USA I had never seen or eaten mac & cheese and for the first few years I was not interested in it either, always having been served the packaged version and never been able to understand its appeal. However, when I started to make my own, using quality ingredients, good seasoning and pasta cooked al dente, I changed my opinion and became a fan like millions of others :-).
I have used all kind of different cheeses and added many other ingredients, such as mushrooms, vegetables, protein etc.
Here now is what I consider to be a basic version. Just make sure you season properly, don’t overcook the pasta and most of all, use the best quality sharp cheddar you can find.

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
