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


Swiss "cheese" is an abomination.

drjekel_mrhyde: Makh: 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.

My mother use to do the same damn thing


I mourn your lost childhoods.  That's the difference...some eat to live, others live to eat.

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.

You poor, poor things. And, to be specific, the only way grilled cheese should be prepared:
Melt butter, one slice of bread, a slice of sharp cheddar cheese over med-low heat to allow cheese to melt. Add cooked bacon (or bits!) and thinly sliced Granny Smith, one more slice of sharp cheddar, top with one last slice of bread, with deli-style mustard spread on it... remove from heat, melt a little more butter, flip...

It will change your life.

In a toaster. Bonus: When it pops out, I make the Star Trek shoosh! sound.


Toaster? sideways?
Why have I never thought of that.

Wow somebody's mad I took them out to the woodshed, looks like. Sorry you've had so much trouble getting across your superior mindset these past few years.


??? 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.

Come on. It's not supposed to have bacon.

And what's that other stuff in there?

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.

Oh, he's every bit as fat as you!

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.

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.

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.

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