How do you grill your cheese?

I used to slather on the butter and the cheese and fry to my heart's content... Now all I do is spray the butter non-stick spray and slap a decent size piece of cheese in between two multigrain or wheat bread slices. ANd that is that. I used to think the buttery gooiesness was the only way to eat them, but now. I like them this way. Also, I used to dip my gooey cheesy mess into Miracle Whip....wow. Yeah that was a confession I probably could have lived without others knowing.... So what about your cheese?

You know, the first time I saw someone make a grilled cheese sandwich in a frying pan I was stunned. I was in my 20's. My mother always put it in the oven under the broiler, which is what I do. I butter both outer sides of bread, put under the broiler until golden brown then turn it over and brown the other side. No one I know makes it this way. I thought it was the only way. Dipping it in mayo, never thought of that. My daughter likes to dip it in ketchup. I just like my grilled cheese sandwich with a pickle on the side... I guess this too is the way we had it when growing up.

Yeah I think I remember some fam members doing it this way also, but in my family growing up we fried everything...plus we lived in the South...where they fry pickles even.

First I heat my pan up, about medium heat. Then I grab some Sara Lee Honey Wheat bread and a bottle of Sqeeze Parkay. I make an X on the bread and lay it in the pan. Wait for the sizzle, then I add (2) pieces of Kraft American sliced cheese. Then I butter another piece of bread and place it on top. Then I flip it over a few times, I never burn it and with some tomato soup or chicken noodle soup its a lunch to remember.

I used to work at the hospital in the kitchen and when we got an order for a grilled scheese sandwich after normal serving hours we simply put two pieces of bread in the toaster and then a piece of cheese on it and wrapped it in saran wrap and sent it to the room. It was actually pretty good if you allowed the time for the cheese to melt.

I have tried the toaster version many times and I have to say I am against it. LOL And yes the cheese must be melted it's the best way to eat it. Thanks for responding.

hmmmmmm, Grill Cheese. I like Mircale Whip too. I spread it on my wheat bread, then add cheese then cook in a buttered pan. Warming it up just blends in the flavors and it's good. My choice of dipping is tomatoe soup.

Abso-freakin'-lutely! You gotta have the sandwich swimming in butter and pile on all the cheese you can without it oozing into the frying pan! I cannot in good conscience eat them very often (I can almost hear my arteries screaming when I inhale one of these beauties), but I really like them. I am going to have to hurry out of this discussion before I talk myself into making one now! Happy myLotting!

I also spray the pan first then put about two pieces of American cheese between the two pieces of white bread. Then I put a little bit of butter on top. Sometimes I'll just use the non stick spray for on top too.

I normally put a slice of cheese in between two slices of bread that is spread with mayonnaise and then butter both sides. I will sometimes use cooking spray if I do not have any butter that is at room temperature.

I let mine bake in the oven long enough for the cheese to melt. Multi-grain and tasty and the cheese not cut too thick but thick enough. And, if it is good cheese you really don't need mayo or anything.

As much as I miss them, I don't eat grilled cheese anymore. I do make them for my kids from time to time though. I've changed the way I make them too. I place the cheese between the bread slices and butter the outside of the top slice. I put the sandwich face down in an ungreased teflon frying pan and then lightly butter the outside of what is now the top slice. Once the cheese is melted, they would never know whether the inside had been buttered or not so I figure I can cut down on some of the fat that way :) They still like them every bit as much and I still miss 'em! LOL
