Grilled Cheese

What is your favorite grilled cheese?

Wednesday night, one of my favorite local places, Tom + Chee, was on Man vs Food. They serve creative grilled cheese sandwiches and if I worked nearby, it would be top on my list of places to eat on my punch out day! Since I don’t, I attempt to make different grilled cheese sandwiches at home.

I’ve mentioned how much I love BLTs, but I made this sandwich with brie, raspberry and bacon. Not too bad!

Bon Appetit Ultimate Grilled Cheese is filled with prosciutto, tomato, basil leaves, crushed red pepper, oil olive and cheese on sour dough bread! If that doesn’t do it for you, find another grilled cheese in their slideshow of sandwiches.

    I’m a fan of the classic – sharp (usually white) cheddar cheese between pieces of buttered sourdough. My husband likes cheeses like Colby, but they end up tasting to me like so much bland melted plastic. I prefer the sharpness of a really good sharp cheddar. And I like having a sturdy mustard to dip my sandwich in. Stoneground is best, though Grey Poupon will do.

    Would you believe I’d never heard of grilled cheese and tomato soup as a ‘classic combination’ till I was well into college? I had no idea all my friends had grown up on that as a meal.

    Grilled Cheeses is my absolute go to when I don’t have dinner (or lunch on weekends) planned. I collect recipes and try different cheeses. I like a classic with just cheese and bread but my kids like bacon, tomatoes, fresh spinach mixed in

    I serve it with a high quality tomato bisque. And, always goat cheese in the bisque, my kids think it comes that way.

    ah Trashmaster, I was never a fan of tomato soup until I was older so you wouldn’t have been missing anything with me!

    It is a nice, easy, warm meal that can be fixed up with what you have. Sounds like your kids get the fancy cheese, Marie!

    My company provides some basics for those days when you just can’t leave your desk (and forgot your lunch on the kitchen table…sigh), like bread, peanut butter, string cheese. I’ve been thinking about how I could make a grilled cheese in a pinch, in the microwave. Any ideas? The tricky part would be getting it to brown—maybe sandwich it (with ample butter) between two ceramic plates? I’ll do some experimenting and report back…
