So when I became an adult, I found out my mom had taught me the most wrong way to do it.  Also why I hated grilled cheese until I left the house.  Her method:  Make toast, put sliced cheese inside hot toast.  For her, food is for sustenance only, and if something had empty calories it garnered the lowest priority.

Oooo...I have got to get me some of that.

His podcast is pretty interesting too.
Also just saw his episode of Mythbusters. His brand of lunacy fits in nicely with Adam and Jaimie.

My kid loves me for many things, but my grilled cheese is high among them.

Sharp cheddar, white bread, lots of butter, heat high enough to brown but not burn. Served with love and a glass of milk.

Sorry Alton.

Butter on the outside!

And gruyere on the inside :)

Of course we have.

Alton's crazy, but he's seldom wrong. The man is a genius when it comes to Thanksgiving turkey, so I'll probably end up trying his grilled cheese.

I already know I do it wrong, I always end up smashing it to listen to it sizzle and I think it cooks quicker that way too.

Stock photo but that looks like a Big Mac with grilled cheese as bread plus some bacon. Could use some tomato slices, lettuce, just about anything fried, and a big bowl of tomato soup with some basil sprinkled on side.

I didn't say it wasn't looking good. Just that it violated some very basic molecular postulates.

He forgot the part where you're grilling with your friends, make veggie sandwiches, and get your azz kicked.
Things that go well with a grilled cheese: sliced tomato, pepperoni, fried egg, jalapenos, caramelized onions, then you throw that all away and make a hamburger.
 
2014-05-15 02:58:20 AM  
Yes it's 2 am here, yes I live in an apartment, yes dragging out the grill and firing that beast in an alley in the middle of the farking night garnered some commentary - not least from Mrs. Space Banana - and yes that was a lot of damned work for a couple sammiches, but ... oh. my. farking. noodle!

Soooo good.

Apparently, I had been doing it wrongly, before.

I see you're very fond of overly processed, chemical-laden food.. so much so that  menthol cigarette ash features in your recipe.

Not that I'm criticizing you; I actually love Circus Peanuts which are basically styrofoam, food coloring and sugar... but dear GOD is that sandwich going to give me nightmares!

Yeah. I was gonna say the guy's got way too much time on his hands. Next you should grill me some tomato soup, Alton.

Truth be told, it was never Kraft singles.
Centrella brand cheese slices was when my dad got paid and the fabled "ghetto cheese" during non-payday weeks. My paternal grandpa used to get the blocks of cheese in exchange for auto repairs. This was in the early to mid-80's on the southside of Chicago.
Welfare cheese was a decent sharp cheddar.

My family is southside redneck to quote a poster from the disco skate thread.

Good bread.  Good cheese.  That should be enough for anyone, but no.  Some people enjoy playing with their food.

What happens when you flip the sandwich over?

There's someone else's CSB in there.

Jesus H. Christ. Does everything have to be assembled from a bazillion different ingredients?

That's what bugs me about these cooking shows; they show something that should be simple but they complicate it by making it from so many items (and notice that they never show us all the dirty bowls & dishes that now have to be cleaned afterwards). And it HAS to all be done by hand too, apparently. I'm surprised Alton didn't demand that we milk the cows by hand and then use an Amish hand-churner to make the cheese.

Where did people get the cheese from, shoplifting?

??? Once I saw the "organic" tomato soup post, I was reminded yet again why you are such easy fodder on Fark. Thanks for having the consistency...of tomato soup.

Kraft yellow cheese slices...not singles.
Margarine spread on outside of soft white bread.
Heat till brown in Teflon pan.
Eat with Campbell's tomato soup.

Swiss or provolone cheese. Deli sliced ham or lean hot capicola if you want meat. Tomato soup to dip it in. Done.

When I was little our elderly neighbors used to give us blocks of their government cheese occasionally, don't ask me why they were getting government cheese that they weren't eating but whatevs. Anyway, the government cheese was better than the blocks of Kraft cheddar that my parents normally bought.
