Gruyere and Havarti.

Munster and cheddar, with roasted Roma tomatoes and garlic drizzled with balsamic. Use garlic sourdough or cheddar jalapeño bread. Can't wait for it to get cold enough to make again!

Apple wood smoked gouda with some homemade carnitas on thick sliced pain au levain.

felching pen: Tillamook White Cheddar


I like the Tillamook Cheddar Jack myself.  When it comes to Tillamook there is no wrong answer.

I'm boring. Plain mild cheddar with just a bit of miracle whip.

Sourdough, aged white cheddar, smoked Gouda. Butter.
 
2022-09-24 10:26:22 PM  
Sharpest white cheddar you can find with dill pickle slices inside.
And a hot cup of tomato soup!

Jesus Farking Christ, Gouda? What kind of commie bullshiat is this?

1. Throw away the Gouda. What are you, elitist?
2. Put butter in pan. Lots of it. Heat it up.
3. Put two slices of Wonder bread in the pan. Add Kraft American cheese to bread. Wait for bread to cook and cheese to melt.
4. Assemble. Serve with a side of tomato soup and a Coors Light.

THAT'S how you make grilled cheese!

2 slices of AMERICAN CHEESE, one slice great tomato. grease the outer bread-sides only with hellman's light mayo and cook in a skillet.

go ahead and judge me, i don't care. i know what's good!

also, you can sub out one slice of kraft single for a melty jack or cheddar or even havarti, sub butter for the mayo...

BUT if it ain't got a slice of american cheese food you ARE doing it wrong.

Pretty sure Jesus used margarine.

no silly, that's for cheesy dip, not sandwiches!

I'm kind of biased. I use pepper jack on everything. I don't even care if it's not a good use for it. I just like it.
 
2022-09-24 11:37:15 PM  
I usually use a mix of medium or sharp cheddar, provolone, and deluxe American(Not the individually wrapped slices.). I usually grill the halves open face in my griddle pan. I find it both quicker and easier to get the cheese appropriately melty that way. And I can add cold cuts or anything else I want before closing the sandwich up.

i mean, you're not home-making "processed cheese slices" with it, are you? kenji did. but it's not required for a good grilled cheese, store bought is best here.....

Best quesadilla cheese

I have also been known to toast two slices of wheat bread in the toaster, then I slap two slices of Velveeta in between, then heat it up in the microwave to melt the cheese.

I usually use Monterey Jack, Colby Jack and Pepper Jack.
I put the Pepper Jack in the middle.
Toast a couple of slices of Sourdough nice and crispy on the outside.

American cheese is a travesty and should not exist barring perhaps as a background homogenizer for other cheeses, where it's foul pretensions to flavor will be murdered before they can do the dish harm ;p

1. bacon

When I'm making it, some of each. Meat eaters also get ham, or if I'm extra motivated, bacon. Cast iron long griddle on the grill, fully preheated, burners set to a little higher than low, lid down. I can do 8 at a time.

Sourdough

Gonna have to agree here on the American cheese. Grilled cheese ain't fine dining. And kraft singles are delicious and make this quick.

Also food tab got me to try that stupid farking mayo crust bs and fark that. I can say I have thrown away one grilled cheese in my life.

Lsherm: Jesus Farking Christ, Gouda? What kind of commie bullshiat is this?


You'd be happy to know that the Dutch don't use Gouda in grilled cheese.

They make 'toasties' instead

Many of the recipes that I see online look like grilled cheese recipes, but the texture is completely different.  (Enough for my 7 year old self to reject them at first)

They will, however, put Gouda on pancakes (pannekoeken, unleavened and like thick crepes) and French toast (wentelteefjes, which I just learned while verifying the spelling that it translates to 'turnaround biatches')

...

And the answer for what cheese for grilled cheese: whatever you have on hand

If you have a toaster oven:

Toast two slices of bread lightly, flip, add toppings, then toast again.

You can then eat them individually, or squish together for a toastie.

My norm when in the Netherlands was a slice of salami, then a medium Gouda (maybe young-ish) on top.

Don't put the cheese all the way to the edge of the bread or you'll have a mess.  Or a toaster fire if you have a roommate like the one I had.

Technically, if you want "grilled cheese", go for Halloumi (the grilling cheese).

i think you're the second person who's told me they hated the mayo crusted bread, i think it was said it came out bitter? my guess is it was too much mayo on a high heat because it always works for me. i also just hate trying to spread cold butter on the bread so i use the mayo method, but i'll certainly not hold using real butter against you!

perhaps if i melted butter in the skillet and just put the sandwich in the butter puddle? but that seems like a quick way to make the bread TOO fried -is there such a thing? the commonwealth country peeps do butter fried bread with a full english breakfast, so......?

Yeah that doesn't work really, you end up with giant crouton slices

/which are not bad of course
//but not too helpful if you're looking to make a grilled cheese

To me a grilled cheese should be done with Velveeta only. Butter or mayo on the bread, a tiny amount of garlic powder, toast both sides, add cheese, maybe a little chopped lunch meat or chicken, assemble, flip frequently to avoid burn til cheese is melted, serve with a cup of tomato soup. Velveeta and white bread always came fishing with us when I was a kid, because both served as food and bait. Mainly cause the food kept me from saying "I'm hungry" every three minutes. That and Velveeta was good trout bait back before power bait became a thing...
 
2022-09-26 10:06:33 AM  
Good quality Gouda. Or fontina (melts very nice). Havarti. Sharp cheddar. Gruyere mixed in maybe. Mmmmm need a grilled cheese right now.

/Anything but those garbage processed cheese slices
