Extra (extra) Sharp Cheddar

Slice cheese very thin. Put mayo on sliced bread (I love Dave's Killer Bread). Layer the paper-thin slices of cheese to desired thickness. Put butter on the outside of the bread, fry on a cast-iron skillet. Use a metal spatula to press down on the top. Flip once, and wait for perfect meltiness.

Alternately, I love a non-melted cheese sandwich with extra sharp cheddar, mayo, mustard, and sharp greens (like arugula). Maybe some cucumber, too!

Grilled or toasted? (is there a difference?)

What kind of cheese?

What's your special recipe?

I've been doing grilled, thick wheat with butter on the outside, Colby Jack melted on the inside. But I'm looking to expand my horizons.
I don't have a recipe, but when my wife makes it she uses sourdough bread and pepperjack cheese. And butter in the pan. Mmmmmmm!

I'm not a grilled cheese fan. But an Aunt of mine had a recipe we still often make at family Thanksgivings and/or Christmas eves for a snack. I guess it would be an open-face baked cheese sandwich.

A loaf of party rye bread (the tiny sized loaf)
A pound of Jimmy Dean Spicy Sausage
A pound of Velveeta (cheese food product, I guess)

Brown the sausage, drain the greese, melt the Velveeta into it. Spread it on the party rye bread and bake on a cookie sheet at 400 until starting to brown (10 minutes?).

I wish they sold smaller sizes of the sausage and Velveeta because otherwise you need a crowd.

Also... what do you call them?

There is a heated debated in my home about their name. Almost everyone I know calls them a "grilled cheese" (despite the fact that they're not actually grilled). My wife calls them a "cheese toasty." As far as I can tell they are only called a "cheese toasty" in two hyper local areas: Decatur IL and somewhere in England. (Ran it down once. Can't remember the exact town. Might have been Bath.)

I prefer the deconstructed grilled cheese.

A few hot saltine crackers, chased by a double blast of cheez-whiz straight down the pie hole.

If we're allowing no cooking of the cheese at all, I'm going bruschetta or the like with jalapeno pimento cheese. Pimento cheese is also the correct answer for what kind on cheeseburgers.

Cheese + carbs = good eats, most of the time.

I eat both cold and toasted ones. Structured and unstructured. With whatever damn cheese I want. USUALLY in combination with 1-2 other cheeses!

While velveeta and American cheeses slices on white were what started me down that road, current common suspects include swiss, Edam, gruyere, akawi, gouda, Boursin, Brie, cream cheese, cotswold, merlot Bellevitano, parrano and more. Sometimes, I use the smoked versions.

I usually use sourdough, but I’ve also used pita, naan, petit pain, ciabatta and the occasional rye.

Cheddar, with ham or bacon added. (I know, I'm getting out of the box- I'm being THAT F'N GUY who wants to be an orc necromancer in a party of paladins...)

With some tomato soup for dipping.

Two of those, wrapped in foil from the Keflavik squadron 'geedunk', used to do me for a 12 hour flight... Ah, memories!

A basic cheese sandwich (not grilled, not garnished in any way -- two slices of bread, butter, cheese) is one of my favourite things. You can add stuff and fancy it up, but you don't need to.

I've never had a toasted or grilled cheese sandwich, but I've had cheese on toast a lot (is that the same thing?)

You should try it, its definitely not the same. It has different texture and taste and its worth the time. Better when made in a cast iron pan too. Two slices of buttered bread, cheese of choice and you're good. I'm a white bread and white and yellow American cheese man myself. Go figure, yellow American cheese is actually orange?

I have an uncle that toasts the bread first before buttering and grilling the rest. Less soggy inside he says. Never tried it myself. I seen somewhere that you use mayo instead of butter when grilling it. My mom tried it and said don't bother. My daughter is trying to perfect my mother's way of cooking them, since she says only Grammy's taste good. It is just the basic way with Italian bread and white Land-O-Lakes cheese but most things taste better when Grammy makes it.

Ive been trying for years to duplicate my deceased grandmothers porcupine meatballs and cant. I failed big time 3 Sundays ago. Out of all of her recipes we still have thats the only one missing. So I concur, Grammys are good.

Mayo isnt worth the trouble, Ive tried it and it didnt add anything that I noticed.

I think the reason that you butter the bread and toast it first is so the bread is saturated with buttery & cheesy goodness. But differnt strokes for differnt folks.
 


Colbyjack melts really well. Back in the day I used to use cheddar but it doesn't have the same flavor as colbyjack on a grilled cheese. If I'm not grilling it I'll use cheddar on white or wheat. For grilled cheese it's colbyjack.
Colby Jack just melts better, its softer than cheddar. Never thought about it but is colby jack just cheddar and American or swiss?
