Grilled Cheese with Chili Crunch
- 2 teaspoons Kewpie mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons salted butter, room temperature, plus more for frying
- 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread
- 2 slices American cheese
- 2 teaspoons Momofuku Chili Crunch
The key to this grilled cheese is to spread the outside with mayo—and load the inside with lots of Chili Crunch.
Spread Kewpie mayonnaise on one side and salted butter on the other side of each of the slices of bread.
Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the first slice of bread, mayonnaise side-down (butter side should be facing up). Add one slice of American cheese. Add 2 teaspoons of Momofuku Chili Crunch, then add the other slice of American cheese. (The chili crunch is sandwiched between the layers of cheese.) Top with the other slice of bread butter side down, mayonnaise side up.
Fry until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes for each side. Repeat for additional sandwiches.
