When you can't go eat whatever and wherever you want, you eat what you can and what wasn't good enough to bother with before. I'd never eat as much PB&J sandwiches and hot cereal, but you get bored with the alternatives. On the topic of grilled cheese, I prefer provolone as an adult. American cheese just scares me. I look at it like it's poison.



American cheese has sodium citrate added to help it melt, thatís all. Nothing to be afraid of. Itís still cheese.

I like tomatoes and bacon on my grilled cheese sandwich. I use cheddar cheese, I add garlic powder, and I do it sandwich style: bread, cheese, tomato, garlic powder, bacon, cheese, bread. I use butter instead of mayo, but thatís because I never remember that I can use mayo. Served with soup and a dill pickle.

Also, any cheese in the cheddar family works. That includes jack cheeses, American, Cooper sharp, brick cheese, Dubliner, etc.

Also, I have a cheese problem. I love almost all cheeses. So, I buy different cheeses, sometimes just to see how they taste. But Iím never hungry enough to eat them all. Right now I have Dubliner, Cooper sharp, Asiago, mimolette, Mull of Kinshire cheddar, Emmental, Fontina, and of course Parmesan and Romano.

When times are tough, and the sky is cloudy, nothing warms the soul like a grilled cheese sandwich.


My God! What timing!
After years avoiding cheese and other dairy products and getting my weight down, walking sidewalks each morning, etc. the quacks put me on a massive eggs/cheese/milk/butter/pasta diet and insisted I stay on it after discharge. So I ballooned up 85 pounds! Can barely walk at all, ... and I'm transitioning back to high fiber Lentils and trying to get off the Deadly Dairy diet.
And what do I find? A thread about what used to be one of my favorite items, even before the days of having to use Food Bank Cheese to make them! I grew up on Velveeta "cheese", thought it was great stuff to make sandwiches of it, even for dinner!

Fortunately, Meals On Wheels provides me with enough decent food to make up for the endless stream of awful-tasting Lentils.

I know it's almost a phobia and an irrational aversion. That's just how I feel, I'm kind of terrified looking at the cheese wrapped in plastic.

When I used white bread, grilled cheese had to be sliced diagonally, but now that I use rye or sour dough I generally don't cut it.

I think I buy sliced cheese by weight, so the holes in Swiss cheese save me money!

;-)

I think I primarily have provolone on sandwiches, with mozzarella second place and Swiss third.

Grilled HAM and cheese. For some reason I like it with sweet pickles, maybe that's because it cuts the salt from the ham. When I'm out of sweet pickles I use sweet relish.

As an AP, I refuse to purchase Swiss cheese.

Too many holes when other cheeses come in full slices

Mayo, cast iron grill pan. 1/4 turn on each side to give you diamond grill marks.

Grilled HAM and cheese.

Yes!

Years ago, Hardee's (Carl's Jr. out there) came out with their "Frisco Breakfast Sandwich," which was essentially a grilled ham and cheese with egg on sourdough. They were incredible! I wasn't much into fast food breakfast at the time, but those things got me addicted!

However, just like all good things, the quality has dropped off over the years. Primarily, they stopped grilling the bread (at least to my satisfacton). The first ones I had, the bread was grilled to a nice crispy golden brown, but lately (actually it's been a year or so since I had one), the bread is soggy!

Grilled ham & cheese on crispy grilled bread is heaven. Soggy 'grilled' ham & cheese is almost inedible.

It might not be to everyone's taste, but I've been using a garlic butter spread Safeway sells and it greatly enhances the taste of the sandwich.
