    Best way to make Grilled Cheese?

    I must admit, a grilled cheese sandwich hits the spot sometimes. What are some of the best ways to make it?
    Types of cheese, with tomato or without, etc?

    The cold weather is setting in in New England, so I await some answers.

    The most critical thing is getting the pan temp correct so that the cheese melts but the bread and butter don't burn.

    I'm a purist. Bread, butter and cheese is all you need.

    Jalapenős are a must. Bacon is wondrous. Both of them and I purr.

    Oh yes, the cheese has to be the plastic wrapped slices. No quality, VSOP, organic, free range slices carved from cave-aged cheddar either. I'm flexible about the bread chosen for the art that is known as grilled cheese. I've enjoyed sour dough slices, thick slices of Italian loaf, challah bread but I've enjoyed grillies made from a couple of slices of foam from a bag of Wonder Bread. I would stress that 12 grain sliced bread with bits of nuts and seeds would overwhelm the grillie happiness of a grilled cheese.

    I forgot to mention my fav grilled cheese: slices of pannetone stuffed with cheese and bacon, the whole thing enrobed in beaten eggs and fried in butter until it is golden and the cheese melted.

    Sourdough or rye, velveta because of how it melts, butter, and mayo because this is The South.

    I use all kinda cheese, bread. The skillet and butter is real important, mayo uh, huh.

    Pickles are the foundation.

    I usually use rye and pepperjack, or some other cheese and then supplement with hot or sweet peppers. Part of the fun is using what's around, and I'm wondering if maybe the conchitas I bought yesterday
    ( http://toxobread.wordpress.com/2009/...haped-topping/ ) might be a good experiment.

    You poor Americans... No McLarens cheese.

    Spread it on the bread instead of butter and fry cheese side down, use an old cheddar inside. Bacon added is more better. :**

    Am I the only one that likes onion on there?
    I start with 12 grain 'bird seed " bread, shredded mozzarella, onion, butter or Becel on the outside.
    Tomato or mushroom soup for a complete lunch.
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    you bake up a chicken patty:


    and put it in the middle of white bread,buttered, plus cheddar cheese from the deli, then cook the grilled cheese with the chicken patty inside it.

    holy balls its delicious. terrible for you, but delicious.

    +1. We leave our butter on the counter too so it's soft enough you can slather the bread, pre-grilling, w/o tearing up the bread with rigid butter.

    I'll caramelize the onions in a separate pan and add them with dijon mustard to the pre-grill build.

    Tomatoes and pickles are both very good. It stuns me that I'd never thought to add bacon, but I'm on it!

    Someone grilled me a peanut butter sandwich just a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't nearly as bad as it sounded to me initially, but once was enough.
