Hive Five: Our Daily Listicle of Musical Musings
While the ASAP Mob is known for their gritty hard-hitting raps and keen fashion sense, one member — ASAP Ferg — is also a grilled-cheese enthusiast. So, with April being National Grilled Cheese month, we jumped at the opportunity to talk about this delectable sandwich and why living the grilled-cheese lifestyle is the way to go. Respect his pasteurization and dig into these five thoughts on how to up your grilled-cheese game.
1. It’s Great Sustenance for Non-Meat Eaters
A$AP Ferg calls himself a pescatarian — “I don’t eat meat and stuff,” is how he puts it — but a grilled cheese is a fine addition to most popular lifestyles and diets.
2. Be Open-Minded in Your Cheese Choices
A$AP Ferg says, “I like Muenster cheese, I like Swiss cheese, I like American cheese, I like white American cheese, I like provolone cheese, I like cheddar cheese, I like mozzarella cheese.” All will work for a grilled cheese.
3. Keep it Crispy
A$AP Ferg admits that you can plump for “any type of bread” when it comes to a grilled cheese but decrees that “you want to cook it so it stays crispy.” Hive recommends splurging your Margiela sneaker fund on a cast-iron Le Creuset skillet.
4. Embellish With Eggs
“It’s definitely good to add egg to a grilled cheese,” says A$AP Ferg. Fried is the way to go.
5. You Can Never Eat Too Many Grilled-Cheeses
As official grilled cheese ambassador A$AP Ferg says proudly, “I could eat nothing but grilled cheese sandwiches all day and be satisfied with life.” Real talk.
