Hey, what’s up guys, welcome to a very special National Grilled Cheese Day where I am making public an old Patreon-exclusive in which I recreate Chef Carl Casper’s “I love you son even though I’m not very good at showing it” grilled cheese. We’re starting with a little bit of olive oil in a cast iron pan, then we are liberally buttering two slices of sourdough bread Placing in the pan over medium/medium-high heat, trying to get a little bit of a toast going, before adding gruyere, cheddar, and parmesan cheese. This cheese blend was tweeted by the man himself at 8:04am on July 13th, 2014. Once these guys get a little toast going and the cheese is looking a little melty, let’s bring the two halves together and, sort of inexplicably, continue spreading butter on the bread; this is what he does in the movie. If I had to guess why, I’d say it’s to add a little bit more buttery-ness. Continue toasting and flipping as necessary until nice and brown and the cheese is totally melted. If it needs a little help, throw a pot lid on top, pour yourself a little bit of tequila, and in a few minutes you’ll have a nice, toasty, melty grilled cheese. Most of this stuff is pretty standard, but the cheese blend is really where it’s at. The only thing I might do differently would be to use comté or fontina cheese in place of the cheddar. And now, what we all came here for, the cheese stretch. A moment of silence, please. Let’s listen in to my celebration of this treasured national holiday. “I mean…shut the f*** up.” *Distant laughter* “Mmmm!” Yeah, shocker, it’s really tasty. Anyway, guys, happy National Grilled Cheese Day. I also want to take this opportunity to announce that I’m going to be a featured creator at VidCon this year in Anaheim, California, June 20th to the 23rd. You can get tickets at vidcon.com and I’ll see you guys there!
