  1. Preheat a nonstick frying pan on a medium-high heat.
  2. Place a single layer of cheese in the hot pan. It will melt and then become crispy.
  3. After it turns “golden” on one side, flip carefully with a spatula onto the other side.
  4. When golden, remove onto paper towels to blot the excess oil. (American cheese doesn't seem to need blotting.).
  5. I like to eat this dipped in ketchup.
  6. Misc:.
  7. Sometimes, I just cook it on one side until brown, and don’t bother turning. It’s chewier that way, also terrific. (But don't blot the melted, unfried side.).
  8. Yes, this does seem a bit decadent. But, I usually make this with cheddar, and it really does seem like a Lot of the oil is left behind. It may be a bit delusional, but I am guessing we are frying some dairy protein, and this is actually healthier than eating plain cheese. What do you think?
