What's your favorite way to make GRILLED CHEESE? Bread? cheese? Hot sauce? Tomato? Meat? Other?

OH grilled cheese, oh yeah! My wife, the little cook just makes them perfect! Just golden brown enough, butters all four sides of the bread. One of my favorites is just a good mild cheddar on white bread -but- I love many other variations including the old ham & cheese maybe a good Polish or Kosher dill pickle on the side?

Your favorites and side dishes?

Well I got hungry for a To-cheese sandwich so the wife made us both one for a midnight snack....delicious!

Schwebel's whole grain white bread buttered on all four sides with some mild creamy cheddar, oh yeah. :D

Now other variations with wheat, french bread, Italian bread, cold garden tomatoes and tabasco, hot or medium hungarian peppers, any number of cheeses like swiss, colby, cojack, Monterray, sharp cheddar and others. OH ever had a Wisconsin brick cheese toasted? It's been years for me but I used to love 'em.

I love all the variations but when you say toasted cheese I think of some good old stringy Colby cheese, bite into it and it strings out between my mouth and the rest of the sandwich, ha.

It's gotta be sourdough for me, wrapped around a slice of Tillamook sharp cheddar, grilled to a golden brown. Soup works great for a side, but it isn't really necessary.:)

Good bread, cheese of whatever kind you like, bacon, and baked beans! Best camp lunch ever!

Grilled cheese is a staple here. We use whole wheat with American cheese now days. I've tried lots of different cheese, but American melts better than most. Try a little picante sauce, or some jalapeno peppers. Just plain ole Louisiana hot sauce works for me too!

Dill pickles on the side here. The wife is funny, she orders extra pickles on her hamburgers, but don't want any with her grilled cheese?:rolleyes:

This entire thread is confusing.

First, how can you butter "all four sides" of bread. It either had two sides - front and back - or six sides - front, back, and four edges. I can't visualize "four sides" of a slice of bread.

Second, a grilled cheese sammich is cheese and bread. If you put anything else on it, it's not "grilled cheese".

Don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with a "grilled ham and cheese" or a "grilled cheese and tomato" or any other variation. But if you put anything on a cheese sammich besides CHEESE, it becomes a "cheese and WHATEVER" sammich.

I remember, some board, this guy going on about how wonderful the BLT he made was. He put ham and turkey on it, along with the bacon, lettuce and tomato. Well, sorry, but that's not a BLT, that's a club. Or if you put cheese on a hamburger, it's no longer a hamburger. It's a cheeseburger.

Or if you put Hershey's syrup into a glass of milk, it's no longer "milk", it's "chocolate milk".

So, peppers or pickles or bacon or ham or tomatoes or whatever. Eat it on the side and you still have a grilled cheese sammich. Put it ON the sammich, and you don't.

Al(y'all know, deep in your hearts, I'm right about this)po

So if I put lettuce, tomato and pickle on my hamburger, I have to call it a lettuce-tomato-pickle-burger?

I want to get this right, as I do not wish to appear foolish or uneducated when I place my order at one of the very elegant burger restaurants I frequent - -

I have to side with Alpo on this one. Walk into a McDonalds and order a hamburger. They claim that it's a juicy 100% beef patty simply seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper, tangy pickles, minced onions, ketchup and mustard. That's all you get! So, is that really a hamburger? IMHO, a grilled cheese is just that, bread, with cheese, and grilled to perfection. Add beef, or pork, to a bean burrito, and it's no longer a bean burrito.:D

Well you can make a plain GRILLED CHEESE, ummm had one last night, noting wrong with that.
Or you can have a GRILLED CHEESE "WITH", nothing wrong there either.

It's up to the individual....but a GC with a cold garden tomato, oh yeah! Or GC with hungarian pepper, tangy good! Life is too short not to try new things. ENJOY!

Oh the little lady read all of our posts and was impressed -and- buttering all four sides on the two slices of bread goes like this, she butters the outside of the bread that hits the griddle and also puts a very little spread of butter on the inside of the bread before putting the cheese on, gives it a really subtle extra cheesy, buttery delicious taste.

Oh her favorite GC or toasted cheese sandwich is the above with a medium slice of tomato...not too thick so it doesn't slide. And with her homemade tomato basil soup on the side, oh yeah!

Basically there's no wrong way to make your GC sandwich. :)
