Grilled cheese sammich construction.

What kind of bread and cheese do you use to construct a grilled cheese sammich, and how do you construct them? I sometimes use Texas toast or French bread, sometimes I use Munster, sometimes I use Velveeta. I butter the bread, put a pinch of garlic powder on the bread and toast it up.

I use sourdough bread and American cheese.

I use olive oil instead of butter. I use a little plastic spray bottle
to apply the olive oil to the bread.

Spray the olive oil on the bread, not in the skillet.
You use less oil and the sandwich bread is more crispy.

Olive oil has less calories and it tastes much, much better.
Once you use olive oil you'll never again use butter/margarine.

The idea with grilled cheese is to keep it simple.
Grilled bread and melted cheese, that's it.

I use good white bread, sharp AMERICAN cheese-the kind that comes in a "brick'-, spicy mustard, butter or olive oil in the pan. Serve with bread & butter pickles and some chips.

White bread (used to be butternut) and american cheese (kraft). Butter the outside of the bread.

As far as olive oil goes, I don't like it. I've only recently seen people use it on bread and I can't figure out why. My wife even does it sometimes and she hates olives.

Used to do grilled cheese sammiches in a cast-iron skillet.
White bread w/ sharp cheddar cheese inside, and butter spread on the outside.

Cook until grilled/with cheese melted.



Now. . . . quick and dirty -

Toast white bread until golden brown.
Remove toast from toaster and place on paper plate.
Slice sharp cheddar and place thick slices onto bread, then 'cap' with other slice of toast.

Put in microwave and 'zap' until cheese melts and starts ooz'n out.

(Good sammich and nothing to clean up!)


If you want, put some Angus peppered pastrami on top of the cheese, before 'zapping'! (Or 'zap' the pastrami for 2 minutes while bread 'toasts') Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Try the most natural method:


Age the bread for a week or so, until little flavor circles appear.

Use the strongest smelling cheese you can find, the kind people return to Walmart. Age it with the bread.

Cover the bread with the cheese, leave in direct sunlight from sunrise until dark.

Eat quickly.

Sourdough sandwich bread, medium or sharp cheddar, a slice of havarti if we have it.

Butter the bread, coat the butter with parmesan cheese, then fry up as usual. The parmesan makes a nice, crispy, tangy outer layer, but still lets the bread crisp normally. A minor, but very nice addition.

I'll sometimes take a bit of lunchmeat ham, turkey or roast beef, and fry it lightly in the pan so it's a bit browned, then add it to the above sandwich before cooking. YUM!

I had one at a local diner the other day: Texas bread soaked in butter (they obviously toasted the inside first. yum!), like, a whole cows worth of cheese, liberal amount of REAL mayonnaise and slices of tomato on it. I've never had one with tomato before.

That, and a bowl of Old Lady homemade chili, took a little of the arctic chill off after a long day working outside. Nirvana.

Cracked wheat sourdough!!!! Generally cheddar, American, Colby, Jack, or combinations thereof.... I like to use mayo on the outside of the bread for frying it up...

And of course cooking up some tomato cream soup to eat with the grilled cheese!!!

First rule: No meat.

If you add meat, it is no longer a grilled cheese sandwich. It is a meat sandwich with cheese.


I pretty much stick with white bread, american cheese and butter.

If you want to get fancy, you can use any cheese. If it's a hard cheese, you just add a soft cheese to hold it. French bread, Gouda and mozzarella work well.

Made one a couple days ago with Texas toast and bacon. Yes it was the best thing ever. Don't know if I can eat a grilled cheese without bacon ever again. I will have to try the olive oil.

I do it this way. Two slices of whole grain bread, with two slices of good American cheese. Lay each slice of bread flat in the toaster oven with one slice of cheese on each slice of bread. Toast until the cheese is melted and the bread is the way you like it and put the two halves together and you have a killer sammy. No grease nice melted cheese and chrispy. And no mess. Fast too.

Fry it in butter, basically.

Cast iron skillet.

Your choice of white bread.

Two slices, butter side down. Brown lightly.

Pats of butter on the top side. When first side brown, flip one.

Add cheese, bacon optionally and recommended. Put browned side of second slice to the cheese on the first.

When the side down is browned lightly, flip whole sandwich with more butter on the iron to finish the final side.

Enjoy, then take one aspirin and 20mg of Zocor. Dial 911, quickly. Tell them to bring defibrillator paddles. Go outside to meet the ambulance while still conscious.
