A More Satisfying Crunch
You can cook a grilled cheese in the frying pan, toast it in the toaster oven or stick it under the broiler, but none of those methods will give you the multidimensional crunch that a waffle iron will.

In his new cookbook, One Good Dish, chef David Tanis shares this technique used by his aunt, whose signature sandwich "was embossed with square dimples, like crisp inverse croutons, and cheese that oozed and crisped at the edges." Use a mix of your favorite cheeses and follow Tanis's two golden rules: Butter the outsides of your bread; and, sprinkle with sea salt before serving.
