Because American cheese is shiat.

well, back in my youth i dated a vegetarian for about a month, and sometimes we would make fancy grilled cheese sandwiches.  now, it made sense.  vegetarians really don't have many options.  you just have to turn things like grilled cheese into something better.  like, use a nice white cheddar, and perhaps find another cheese that matches, like fontina or whatever.  also, then we added some kind of small vegetable, like a sprout or something, to balance it all out.

it wasnt' bad.  but, when i make grilled cheeses these days, i use cheddar and bread.  nothing fancy.  because I have meat in my life. i don't need to to make these conciliatory meals better.

but, i was reading in a magazine about sandwiches, and some chef said he puts on a thin layer of mayonaise on the bread, and throws the bread, mayo side down, in the pan/griddle.  i thought, ridiculous, impossible, preposterous, it's an outrage!  and i throw the magazine to the floor... but, the seed was planted... i was infected.  i had to know if i was being lied to, was it real?  could you grill the mayo side of the bread?

and then i tried it.  and i was like, holy shiat balls, this is awesome!  it perfectly carmelized the outside of the bread, but maintained the softness beyond the exterior crunch!  then, i also noticed, this is not the first time i've tasted this.  i've tasted this at some serious sandwich places.

react as you will, call it an outrage, put me on your ignore lists, do whatever you must.to help maintain your sanity... but, know that the seed has been planted, there will come a day when you grill your mayonnaise into your bread.  and on that day you will remember the man they called pute... the mayo-man pute...  the one who, in this blighted place known as fark, taught you to live again.

jfivealive: American cheese and velveeta with tomato on buttered potato bread on a flat grill pressed down so that a bunch of cheese squeaks out and then blackens an inch around the bottom slice of bread is the bees knees of run on sentences.


If you eat "American cheese" of your own free will and you're more than ten years old there is something wrong with you.

The "American cheese."

You want a grilled cheese sandwich, use real cheese.

Inside-Out Grilled Cheese.

Basically a standard grilled cheese using shredded cheese rather than a slice. But you also spread some of the shredded cheese on the bread prior to flipping it. The cheese melts from the heat and gets crispy. Fark yes.

If you start adulterating a grilled cheese sandwich, you're farking up the sandwich. Its bread and cheese. Its not heirloom tomatoes, pesto and cheese, its CHEESE AND MOTHER FARKING BREAD. Its a grilled cheese sandwich. Its a cheese sandwich that has been grilled. I know bacon is delicious and I love it as much as everyone else, but its not a grilled cheese if you add bacon and avocado. This makes me irate. My husband once suggested we fancy up some grilled cheese. I told him I would make the fanciest tomato soup I could and then I'd make him a grilled cheese sandwich. He was satisfied because I was in the kitchen making his sandwich.


So instead of making the sandwich your husband wanted and simply telling him you'd do it if he didn't call it grilled cheese, you pulled a bait and switch, made him soup he didn't ask for and also made him a sandwich he didn't want because he had offended you by calling it grilled cheese?

No, it went more like this, because he had no clue what he meant when he wanted something "fancier" than grilled cheese:
Mr. U: I'm hungry.
Me: What can I make for you?
Mr. U: I dunno. Do we have any X, Y or Z?
Me: No, we finished all of that stuff. I can go to the store to get whatever?
Mr. U: Grilled cheese sounds good!
Me: OK, do you want anything else with that?
Mr. U: what if you make fancy grilled cheese?
Me: Fancy? Like harvarti? gouda? swiss?
Mr. U: No, I want cheddar, but with something else.
Me: Sourdough bread? Como bread?
Mr. U: No, I want it on my bread.
Me: What else can I do to make it fancy for you?
Mr. U: I don't know.
Me: Maybe I can make you some fancy tomato soup then?
Mr. U: YEAH!

Had he gotten specific or agreeable about anything I suggested, I would not have been unwilling to make the sandwich as requested, I just don't know what he meant by "fancy" and therefore, I upgraded his lunch with soup.


I'm glad I asked. Your version is much nicer and less manipulative than what I was picturing.

Shortlist is terrible because nothing there would ever go on my shortlist.

Also, this caramelobstermeltosity is not good cuisine, it is the mind of the culinary school jerkoff at work.

i'd eat it, but it doesn't sound like it's a good sandwich.  some good ingredients, yes, but no real balance or harmony.  flavors all over the place, fats and acids run rampant... and what's with the caramel?  lobster is already a pretty sweet meat.

this is like a young chef that wishes he was great, and has great ingredients, and has been told what might taste good, but has the palate of a 12 year old

Very thin sliced onion and tomatoes (paper thin!) are acceptable additions, especially if you use Meunster cheese

Technoir: I never knew exactly what American Cheese was.


You are fortunate. You must stay very, very far away from it, because it is disgusting and quite inedible. Often it is sold as "cheese food," and you should be concerned by the fact that something nominally intended to be food has to state that fact on it. That is just how disgusting it is.

When the cheese stops being the star it's no longer a grilled cheese sandwich, it's a melt. I'm all for some condiments, like caramelized onions, basil, or ajvar, but this is too far for it to still be grilled cheese.
