I realize that having "Advanced" and "Basics" in the same title might seem a bit contradictory, but the good ol' grilled cheese is about as basic as it gets. Using technique and flavorful ingredients, we'll try and put some fun spins on this after-school classic, hopefully without upsetting the purists!

  • Only cheese? LAME, add some ham and live a little, sheesh!

  • ah yes, wine and grilled cheese

  • Did he try to say worcestershire sauce?

  • you mentioned chef john. i must do this. ahem. "you are the john cleese of your tasty grilled cheese."

  • The Sims 'Grilled Cheese' aspiration unlocked.

  • Daily Dose of High Cholestral

  • I had only tangerines in the house that no one was eating it went really well baked in the over instead of fried. next time I think i will skip the rine and just use the juice and not bread the chicken because for me it became to dry trying to brown up the breading in the oven.

  • Mustard butter... If you read it quickly.... XDDD

  • He must have made this in response to Gordan Ramsey's sad, sad grilled cheese.

  • What kind of bread is it?

  • I was using my oven to make multiple sandwiches at once and something incredibly delicious happened. Later, I learned about browning butter and it was clear I had accidentally browned the butter while oven baking my sandwiches. I wonder what such a trained culinarian would say about that.

  • Does..does babish freeze his bread? You can see something melting off the crust on the sped up footage of it cooking, looks like ice crystals

  • It’s nearly 2am and I now kinda want a toastie....

  • I do that to flip my sandwhiches. But only with a regular pan.

  • I didn’t know such levels of grilled cheese could be achieved.

  • simple hack, use cheese bread for even more cheese

  • i so hunger

  • The only thing you need is a tomato soup to go with these

  • ok friday after school... makin' it... can't wait for friday

  • "Whooshwushiir sauce", or "Westchesterfordsirshire sauce"? 🤔 Also, I guess a grilled cheese covered in bechamel would be a "croque fromage".

  • Getting dangerously close to 'Melt' TM territory here. One would not want to be accused of being a heretic.

  • take a shot everytime he says cheese

  • like ya, but there's never a reason for white bread as an immigrant, I didn't understand it at 7 or now at 70

  • What would you use to replace the alcohol in all the combo cheese spreads?

  • another great melty cheese with a lot of taste : RACLETTE CHEESE!! it's my favourite cheese to make grilled cheese and croque monsieurs with

  • I didn't see a tomato soup being made. Tf bro? Remake this

  • I just want a cheese sandwich now.

  • So start the cooking on a cold pan for .. adhesion ? But the other side is plopped onto a hot pan. Just me?

  • i usually add dried oregano to my grilled cheese. call me crazy or wicked, but do not call me a fool until you try it for yourself

  • how does he get the cheese to be so melty without pressing down on the sandwich like a maniac? help

  • This isn't your normal every day grilled cheese. This is *advanced* grilled cheese.

  • Advanced grilled cheese?!?! Uh yes please haha

  • I tried cooking grilled cheese in cast iron, and the edges of the bread carbonized onto the iron and has never came off no matter how hard I scrub it.

  • Would you go head-to-head with Alton Brown's griddled cheese?

  • Is it cheating to make the cheese different I wonder

  • "The vast majority of cheeses don't melt as well as American." American what? I know there's a thing people from the USA call American Cheese, but....I'm pretty sure the rest of the world doesn't consider it to be cheese. Is that what you meant? It's some yellow stuff, but, I wouldn't dignify it by calling it cheese.

    • Had the same thought. I'm from Poland and most of the cheeses that I can buy here melt beautifully. Maybe the US versions are too processed and can't melt properly anymore? 🤷‍♀️ Yeah, and the yellow squares are definitely not a cheese. They might be a cheese-like product, but that is NOT a cheese.

  • The wise idea ultrastructually tumble because atm formerly precede unto a tangible babies. old-fashioned, guttural H habitual christmas

  • I use my toaster oven because I’m to lazy to clean my pans.

  • Ahhh


  • babish when are you doing a collab with ordinary sausage

  • Elmer Fudd will be...pleased...

  • 羅白糕

  • 3:43 Adam Ragusea: You called?

  • Wow 🤩

  • I thought I was the only one who lied about knowing Linux. The only thing I know are the keyboard shortcuts ;-;

  • I like how he put an "Advanced" recipe in a "Basics" video.

  • @ 6:02 how do you say Worcestershire sauce?? lol

  • Whenever I hear the phrase "purists say that..." I always mentally replace it with "people who need to get a grip and get out more say that..."

  • 3:17 I watched this so many times until I was done 😂😂😂🤫🤭

  • 3:14 Babish De Niro

  • Cheese slices aka American cheese. If you can call it cheese *gag*

  • why did i find 5:21 so funny

  • When are you gonna collab with ordinary sausage???? Needs to happen

  • Gordon Ramsey aggressively taking notes* ✍

  • when it comes down to it, wine is just advanced fruit juice.

  • Whew! 😅 I’m glad I’m not the only person who believes the movie “Chef” is awesome.

  • Chef John's inside-out grilled cheese is so perfect. It's the only way I've made grilled cheese since that video's release. Although I follow his method a little more closely that Babby 😜

  • Local chef gets intoxicated drinking wine while making too many grilled cheeses

  • Gordon Ramsey could have a look at this video eh

  • Is it still a grilled cheese if it's dipped in tomato soup after cooking, or is it a soup melt? If I put a grilled cheese sandwich in the grilled cheese, is it a grilled cheese melt?

  • "You do not have enough credits. "Advanced Grilled Cheese"/GCA 4091 is only available for students to take after taking 'Intermediate Grilled Cheese"/GCIN 3300 and "Beginners Grilled Cheese"/GCBG 2010. " - My College Advisor.

  • Setting the sandwich on a wire drying set was genius. I always get annoyed when it's soggy, so I appreciate this tip lol

  • Advanced grill cheese in basics with babish. Hmmmm something ain't right!

  • “Sammich”

  • "Golden brown" is an undercooked grilled cheese. For a proper grilled cheese, you want just a little bit of char on the outside. It just doesn't taste right without it.

  • As always, I’m amazed that Babish hasn’t singed his tastebuds off

  • might have moaned a little around 8:39 ngl

  • babish " some say that even adding mustard will disqualify your sandwich and make it a melt" Also Babish "So we're just gonna add some mustard to this bad boy"

  • Alton Brown looking at you thinking ‘these are griddled sandwiches with melt cheese!’

  • This mans better than Gordon Ramsey

  • Babging with Bingish Babsics with Basish

  • Idk man, it sounds like a grilled cheese but with extra steps

  • I never thought of tomato in the grilled cheese!!

  • Babing babingo

  • I skipped 20 seconds at the beginning, which made him say "Cheese. Let's get down to basics." That's all the intro he needed, honestly

  • humdrum tastes like flat pear flavored hard seltzer

  • Cheese shredded off of a block is always better for melting than preshredded because it doesn't have the edible talcum powder they put on bagged shredded cheese.

    • caramelize the onions. I had no idea you could get pre-caramelized, and will likely.... ///never/// do so.

  • Be honest Babish, how many (on camera + off camera) grilled cheese sandwiches did you consume that day? :)

    • Whelp time to get obesity

  • I make a Linberger grilled cheese with Rye bread and I use Chipotle mayo on the outside...try you will be surprised.

  • A poached egg on each half of that last sandwich and... What could be better, in any universe?

  • Im legit gonna do this right now

  • Mayo > Butter

  • Reminds me of the grilled cheese deluxe episode, so much just to make something so simple that even I can’t make still

  • Believe it or not, Mayo works 10x better.

  • This guy's hilarious...

  • I don't think ye can call it a sandwich anymore.

  • I love cheese but American cheese is disgusting.

  • Butter used looks absolutely vile, gets some pure Irish Kerry gold butter on that toastie

  • The series is called BASICS with banish and then he gives you ADVANCED grilled cheese. Love it

  • this guy makes grilled cheese better than i can pour a glass of soda

  • Somebody needs to introduce Babish to Wensleydale and Cheshire cheeses.

  • Whelp time to get obesity

  • Ok, I'm sorry, WHAT. 7:28 there are store-bought caramelized onions? That just sounds... wrong. One of the first things my parents taught me to do to help out with dinners was caramelize the onions. I had no idea you could get pre-caramelized, and will likely.... ///never/// do so.
