  • The best cheese for grilled cheese is processed cheese!

    While I do my very best to avoid processed foods of all kinds, I find that for your basic grilled cheese sandwich only American/Canadian processed food slices are best. And although I never buy Wonder bread, I'd say the combination of it with the processed cheese creates Grilled Cheese perfection. I know, it's awful to admit, especially from a cheese lover, but I grew up on these as a youngster and I can't let go! Haha!

    Now, I'm not unopposed to change and a bit of a creativity, so here is a Grilled Cheese on light Rye with tomatoes and a few slices of Roast Beef. I also roasted some potato wedges with garlic powder, onion flakes, black pepper and a little paprika.

    While not immune to the lure of cheese-food I stay away as much as I can. Most hard and semi hard cheeses work for grilling, just shred them beforehand and the melt will be smoother. Another tip is to use mayo instead of butter on the outside of the bread. Doesn't burn as readily, browns nicely an allows a longer time on the cooking surface for better melting scrumptiousness!!

        John that is not a grilled cheese, it is a roast beef and cheese on rye.

          This looks like Velveeta! Reminds me of my childhood.

        Gruyere, Comté or a good brie makes an awesome GCS. life is too short for processed cheese, the one exception are in-n-out burgers!

          A long time comfort food dish for me is a grilled cheese sandwich with a bowl of Campbell's tomato soup on a winter day. Of course you have to use whole milk when you make the soup and I use any bread except white bread for my grilled cheese.

          For those of you who like jelly/jam, next time you make just a plain grilled cheese sandwich (no soup to go with it) try spreading your favorite jelly over the top.

          And Johnny, your grilled cheese/roast beef sandwich looks like the bomb!

          2 slices fresh white bread
          1 slice American cheese (brand of choice)
          Butter (real not margarine)

          Butter one side of each bread slice
          Apply mayonnaise to other side of bread
          Add cheese slice
          Pepper to taste
          Place in hot non stick skillet
          Cook until golden brown both sides and cheese oozes out

          Enjoy.

            Hollandaise, pure butter and egg yolks. Gotta love the butter. Hard to make too if you are not holding your mouth right.

          I couldn't agree more with you Johnny with regards to margarine. Is there anything that butter and garlic won't make taste better?

            Grilled cheese sandwich. No garlic

        • #11
          Things that don't taste better with garlic, no particular order;

          Peanut butter and jelly
          cheesecake
          banana pudding
          pancakes
          chocolate chip cookies
          tea

          there are more.

          Now butter is another story, had to think a bit;

          citrus
          watermelon
          cucumbers, don't like them any way

          Also remember to put the butter on the cheese side of the bread and the mayo on the heat side.

              You actually don't taste it. Just allows you to cook longer without burning. Also gives me an excuse to double up on the butter inside!!!
