Did you love eating grilled cheese sandwiches made with Kraft Singles when you were a kid?
Here’s a slightly more grown-up version of that classic. The cheese is homemade — and yes, you can make American cheese in your own kitchen. In fact, it’s probably easier than you think. All that’s missing is a bowl of tomato soup to go with it!
You will need:
- ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk, divided
- 1 teaspoon gelatin
- 8 ounces mild orange cheese (such as Colby), shredded
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
