2 slices (of a cheese slicer) of velveeta (or off brand, but same idea)
1 slice provolone
1 slice swiss
(assuming you people buy your cheese sliced via the store, if not...cheese slice/bread with worth of cheese)
2 buttered sliced of bread, w/e bread you like (I like wheat).
A pan
A stove or fire or a way to make pan hot.

If pan is round enough lay both slices of bread, butter face down, and then place cheese on face up part. Apply heat to pan until cheese has melted and/or bread is at the desired "grilled" (I like mine almost burnt) color.
Combine, via cheese side. Eat.

Small pan: just grill on one side until desired color and flip.

Microwave: No butter, only take like 40sec, but then bread is all mushy and this is like the worst way to eat this.

Toaster Oven: No butter needed, cook like Large Pan method. Combine cheese bread slices once done.

Toaster: In them Grill Cheese mits, I've never tried, it would be a mess.

Camp Fire: Good luck.

I have some swiss, provolone, a provolone/mozzarella blend, sharp cheddar, mozzarella, pepper jack, and a pepper-colby jack. A loaf of wheat bread and a loaf of italian bread I bought from the bakery on Thursday. And a few cans of Campbell's tomato soup and some sleeves of Zesta saltines.

I think I'm prepared.

The right thing to do with a grilled cheese sandwich is add bacon for a wonderful artery clogging snack.

Eh, just Gouda is good enough for grilled cheese. If I want to get something more fancy I'm not going to use it for grilled cheese, in part because of price because good cheese is @#%^ing expensive.

Muenster cheese is cheap, the American version, that is. I've never had the proper French kind.

Pretty much all regular cheese here is Gouda and any special cheese I'm only going to buy at the cheese store I go to where it's going to be way too expensive to throw in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Gah, this makes me miss the Netherlands, here Gouda is a fancy cheese. On the other hand, we have a better selection of affordable great cheddar cheeses which I missed when I was over there, so I guess it goes both ways.

I had a grilled cheese this weekend - rosemary sourdough bread and sharp cheddar. Garnished with a pile of ketchup ...for dipping. Tasty.

I need to make more sourdough bread, but traveling really plays havoc with my ability to maintain my starter :(

Me too. Smiley: frown

Thankfully I made some over the weekend and inadvertently celebrated the holiday. If I had known I would have done something a little more fancy though.

A proper grilled cheese sandwich has to be smashed flatter than a pancake when it comes off the grill. Bacon, sliced tomato, or sliced pickle are all acceptable additions, although not all at the same time. Sauerkraut is not, unless Swiss cheese is used and corned beef and Thousand Island dressing are added (on dark rye toast, please!).

Of course the sandwich must be served warm, with a glass of cold beer and with ketchup available for those who desire it. I'll leave it to Aeth to suggest the proper beer for accompaniment. The sandwich should never be served on a china plate with garnish and ketchup smeared around in an attempt at an impressionist design. A paper plate or a napkin is sufficient.

The sandwich should be consumed with friends while watching a sporting event for maximum enjoyment, but is always enjoyable when prepared as above.

I don't get the whole ketchup thing. I understand the tomato, because grilled cheese goes great with tomato soup. But I think Ketchup is way too sweet to be used for dipping and would over power the flavor of the sandwich easily. The only thing I use ketchup for these days is when I bake meatloaf.

And I don't agree with the smashed flat thing.

Sauerkraut should only be served in sauerkraut mashpot with potatoes, sauerkraut bacon or whatever it's called in the US (if it even exists) and pepper. Serve with gravy, smoked sausage and a good Weizenbock.


Also, a plain old pilsner with grilled cheese sandwich, a more hoppy beer if you want to add chillies to the sandwich.


Edit: I've heard that ketchup in the states is much sweeter and more artificial tasting than the ketchup here. At least the good ones here taste mostly like tomatoes.

One of my easier meals is simply baking ring bologna or kielbasa in a casserole dish with sauerkraut. Add in thinly sliced apples or onions for fun. Serve with mashed potatoes and Dijon mustard. It's pretty yummy. Then there is sauerkraut left over for Rubens (which is just a fancy grilled cheese).

I say NO to smooshing grilled cheese sandwiches...NO NO NO.

That may be the case. I know Heinz (the most common ketchup brand in the states, at least in the south) is definitely sweeter than other brands, and what I think of when I think ketchup. A more regular tomato flavor would go quite well with grilled cheese, though I feel just sticking with tomato soup would be sufficient.

This. Just make a bowl of tomato soup, and then you've got all the yummy dipping you need. It's just the right flavor combination IMO.
