INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) A Fort Wayne man has crafted the best grilled cheese sandwich in Indiana.
Andrew Kuehnert’s “The Mousetrap” was named the state’s Ultimate Grilled Cheese in a contest at the Indiana State Fair. The Kuehnert Dairy Farm partner participated in the contest on Saturday.
Kuehnert’s creation combined slices of medium Cheddar, Havarti and Colby-Jack cheeses on firm white Texas-style toast.
1-2 tablespoons of salted butter, softened
2 thick slices of firm white bread (Texas toast-style)
1 thick slice medium Cheddar cheese
1 thick slice Havarti cheese
1 thick slice Colby-Jack cheese
Preheat griddle or skillet to medium/medium-high. Generously butter 1 side of each bread slice. Place 1 bread slice, butter side down, on griddle. Top with Cheddar, Havarti and Colby-jack cheeses then second bread slice, butter side up. Grill until golden brown and cheeses are melted, pressing down on sandwich and flipping as needed. Cover if needed to help melt cheeses. Remove from griddle and let stand 1 minute; cut in half and serve. Garnish as desired.
Makes 1 sandwich.
