If you’re a melted cheese fanatic, this article is for you! Grilled cheeses are one of the easiest dishes to make, but mastering simplicity is often an art. The grilled cheese is a warm sandwich consisting of two slices of buttered bread, sandwiching a generous amount of the cheese of your choice, then grilled to perfection in a frying pan, in the oven or with a specialized appliance. Other ingredients like meat or vegetables can be added to the basic grilled cheese. Crispy buttered bread and oozing cheese, there’s no better way to treat yourself at a low price!

Arthurs Nosh Bar

The grilled cheese at Arthurs Nosh Bar is tried and true. The restaurant on Notre-Dame Street West is famous for its breathtaking brunches and for good reason! We are never disappointed by the grilled cheese prepared with love by the chef; with cheese dripping out of the perfectly grilled braided challah bread, what more could you want?! For $2 extra you can add grilled kosher salami or a fried egg to your sandwich. Every bite is a delight!
