    Default Grilled cheese sandwich

    How do you make yours?

    2 slices (oatmeal) bread with hard crust.
    Butter one side only of each slice.
    Literally cover the butter w/poppy seeds.
    Fried egg & slice of sharp cheddar inside.
    Fry the sandwich till darker than golden brown but just before burnt :-)

    My favorite is:
    - 2 slices white bread, buttered on one side
    - american cheese slice inside and tomato slices with salt/pepper
    - sometimes add a slice of thin lunchmeat but not always
    - fry until semi-dark

    Whole grain bread with flax, 2 slices
    Old cheddar cheese, enough for a good sandwich
    sliced thinly tomato
    sliced thinly sweet onion, not too much
    grill in pan with butter
    flip
    grill on other side until a good crust, and cheese melted
    a little hot sauce on the plate for dipping a little bit, not too much

    Butter on one side of 2 slices of white bread.
    Sprinkle some powered garlic on the unbuttered side.
    Put 2 slices of either American cheese or cheddar cheese.
    Pan fry it on both sides and use a press thing on it to skwish it
    down.

    I make too many and buttering them requires too much care with soft
    white bread, so:

    1. Put olive oil and butter in pan on medium heat, replenishing as
    needed:

    2. Two slices of white bread, extra sharp cheddar in the middle, plus a
    little garlic powder and a little black pepper.

    3. Cook on both sides until golden brown or a bit more - cheese will be
    melted by then.

    Optional: deli ham or tuna salad between the slices along with the
    cheese - IMHO, if it's got more than cheese in the middle, it's no
    longer a grilled cheese sandwich, it's a grilled <whatever else you've
    got in there> and cheese sandwich, e.g., a grilled ham and cheese, or a
    grilled egg and cheese.

    This one belongs in the "Dreaming Up Disasters," i.e., never been tried)
    category.

    French toast two slices of bread.

    Plate one, cover with a thick slice of cheddar and quickly torch it to
    melt.

    Follow with a thick slice of Monterey Jack cheese atop and torch it to
    melt.

    Blanket with slices of avocado atop. DON'T torch!

    Follow with a thick slice of Swiss cheese atop and torch to melt

    Follow with a thick slice of American cheese atop and torch to melt

    Cover with remaining slice of French toast, firmly press together, serve
    and enjoy!!!

    Maybe call it the "French Fired Grilled Cheese" sandwich!

    Lots of room to move and improve, I know.

    What a fun website-it brought back memories from camping trips in the
    60's. They sell many versions of those "irons in the fire" in camping
    stores today. I haven't given it much thought, but it would be fun to
    try those Pillsbury rolled-up pie crusts in one.

    We had very limited food imaginations in the 60's-I bet there are all
    sorts of imaginative recipes today. The Food Network should have an Iron
    Man Irons in the Fire special :-)

    As for french toast grilled cheese, I think I have already seen a recipe
    where you make a grilled sandwich, then dip it in the egg mixture, and
    re-fry the entire thing.

    I would suggest filling your grilled cheese sandwich with a bit of cream
    cheese and fruit inside, then egg dip and fry the sandwich, and serve
    with syrup. Yum-I would order that from the menu.

    Oh, man, I was just talking about those things the other day. When I was
    a little kid, we made those all the time! I'll have to get my mom to
    give me her press so I can make them for the blog. Too fun.

    Mine never come out right. I think maybe because I put too much cheese in
    them.

    I am not picky about the cheese. I like any kind or a mix of cheese. I
    also like strips of bell pepper, onion and a slice of tomato in there.
    Rather than grill them, I toast the bread, butter each side then make the
    sandwich, wrap in foil and bake it in the oven until the cheese melts. I
    also vary the bread. Could be sourdough, rye or even white.

    My default is whole-wheat bread, cheddar cheese cooked in olive oil.
    (I'm not gonna say fried, and I'm not gonna say sauteed, I'm just
    saying "cooked".)

    The next most likely addition for me is an Anaheim-typed chile.

    My grandchildren always tell me I make the "best grilled cheese
    sandwiches in the world" (LOL). I just use white bread with a slice of
    cheese (their favorite is Pepper Jack, but if I don't have it, used
    sharp Cheddar, and I put a piece of baloney (or boiled ham luncheon
    meat) between the two slices of cheese, butter the outside of both bread
    slices and fry on each side until deep golden brown and the cheese is
    soft and "oozy". Simple as 1, 2, 3!

    I tell them it the "grandma touch of love" that makes it so good! :-)

    This +1.

    I make my grilled cheese sandwiches with soft wheat bread, American cheese (not
    cheese product, etc.) for its meltability, and another layer of a more flavorful
    cheese grated, such as an overjarige Gouda, perhaps with a sprinling of parmesan
    or other Italian grating cheese. I use clarified butter on the exterior
    surfaces.

    And -- most importantly -- finely ground black pepper, which really enhances the
    overall flavor.

    Make mine white rye, toasted, and the hot toast rubbed with a cut garlic
    clove before buttering, then layer the cheese sprinkle with crushed
    dried oregano and fry briefly in a bit of butter till the cheddar
    cheese starts to melt.

    Occasionally i use a swiss cheese and deli sliced ham or chicken to
    layer with the cheese and then nuke for a minute or so, serve with a
    knife and fork

    So, what's the problem with "cheese product"? I'm trying to vague'n
    it. No cow juice in cheese product. Put on a tad bit o' mustard, I
    dare you to tell the diff.

    I have a similar gadget from France that makes
    two rectangular ones at a time and impresses
    a figure of a scallop shell on each surface.
    I used it for a while, then lost interest.

    While I was using it, I liked to use canned
    cream of mushroom soup as a filling. That's
    not a bad filling, but you have to be careful
    when eating it to avoid squirting out molten
    hot filling.

    "+1" is modern Internet-speak for "me, too" or "I completely agree with
