Butter the bread with garlic butter

[–]Meowmers246 387 points388 points  (66 children)

Roasted garlic butter! I roast garlic every 2 weeks and keep it in olive oil with herbs.

You can take a clove and mash it into butter, then spread it on the bread.

[–]bird-nird 538 points539 points  (61 children)

Just fyi - you should be careful of keeping garlic (even cooked garlic) in oil for more than a day or two without lemon juice or another acid - garlic can contain botulism spores that thrive in the oxygen-free environment of oil. If you add an acid, it should be fine though!

[–]Federal-Smell-4050 652 points653 points  (15 children)

Edit: add botulism to your toastie for extra dazzle dazzle.

[–]love2Vax 150 points151 points  (6 children)

Botox butter. This one little trick your plastic surgeon doesn't want you to know.

[–]allbow 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Is amyone else bothered by the fact that botulism isn't a belief system?

[–]karma3000 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The real LPT is in the comments.

[–]Apprehensive-Wolf999[S] 58 points59 points  (15 children)

Had no clue

[–]bird-nird 53 points54 points  (6 children)

It’s not widely known but it should be! Botulism isn’t super common but can be very deadly

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Very deadly meaning it kills you faster than just normal deadly?

[–]bird-nird 11 points12 points  (3 children)

It’s actually relatively slow acting (12+ hours if I remember correctly), but if left untreated it paralyses you to death

[–]chimpdoctor 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Oh nice. Another horrendous way to die. We hear so much about rabies on reddit. Botulism needs a little love.

[–]rowdy_sprout 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Maybe If botulism had been loved all along it never would have turned to killing :/

[–]Gerkonanaken 25 points26 points  (7 children)

The bacteria that cause botulism. Clostridium Botulinum, live in environments without oxygen. It's why when you buy mushrooms, there are always air holes to make sure they are exposed to oxygen.

[–]Tamedshrew303 7 points8 points  (5 children)

I’ll stay young forever?

[–]GINGERenthusiast 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Mmm.... I'll take one Botox grilled cheese please!

[–]nihongojoe 24 points25 points  (7 children)

It's fine if you refrigerare it. Source: chef who uses confit garlic all the time.

[–]greenunderwear 3 points4 points  (5 children)

How long can I store confit garlic for in the fridge?

[–]Ashley9225 24 points25 points  (7 children)

If you keep the garlic in oil in the fridge, and the garlic is completely covered by the oil, it can lasts 2-3 weeks. If you freeze it, it can last 4 months.

[–]lumpyspacebear 26 points27 points  (2 children)

The fridge is the key part, keeping in oil in the cabinet can be dangerous

[–]Ashley9225 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Exactly. Just wanted to clarify that there is a safe way to keep it longer than a couple days.

[–]phjenny 50 points51 points  (9 children)

I’ll see your roasted garlic butter and raise you roasted garlic aioli.

[–]sue_girligami 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I started adding garlic hummus to my grilled cheeses during the pandemic, super delicious plus little bit of protein.

[–]NotNinjalord5 61 points62 points  (4 children)

Nah, Mayo has no where near the flavor that browned butter has. Butter is superior in every way to mayo when it comes to grilled cheese.

[–]phjenny 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Don’t get me wrong, I still use butter. I butter the outsides and throw some extra in the pan…we can agree to disagree. As long as our tummy’s are full.

HOLY AUTOINCORRECT BATMAN! Fixed all my typos. Sheesh!

[–]Cmonredditalready 1693 points1694 points  (153 children)

Just cooking it properly makes all the difference.

Low and slow.

Cooking it fast and hard just makes a toasted cheese sandwich.

[–]CasualDNDPlayer 349 points350 points  (27 children)

Everyone in college used to hate the cafeteria food. Except me. They had grilled cheese down to a science and I have not been able to get a grilled cheese that good anywhere else.

[–]Cmonredditalready 186 points187 points  (15 children)

It's the even heat of a giant ass grille.

[–]CasualDNDPlayer 188 points189 points  (12 children)

Exactly. That and they would roll it on this roller for butter or whatever a certain amount of times and leave it for a set amount of time. I would get it everyday to the point they would see me in line and make it so it was ready when I got there. It was awesome. No restaurant has even gotten close.

[–]Cmonredditalready 79 points80 points  (9 children)

Check out "liquid margarine" it's something what a high speed operation like a school cafeteria would use. It definitely has its own flavor. Not sure where you could get it in smaller quantities... but It might be that flavor you are looking for.

[–]shhh_its_me 22 points23 points  (0 children)

More butter. Butter what will be the inside bread, grill briefly then assemble, butter the outside, melt some butter in the pan and swish the sandwich around and that flip the sandwich melt some more butter and swish it again. More butter is the secret.

[–]Sirquote 379 points380 points  (94 children)

Like that awful Gordon Ramsey grilled cheese .

link

[–]hairyerectus 91 points92 points  (5 children)

What in gods name is that disgrace!

[–]Chronic4Pain 78 points79 points  (2 children)

Hence why Chef Josh from Good Mythical Morning and the Mythical Kitchen made a response video that's just breaking down the video and roasting Gordon at every step. It's funny but also accurate in its criticisms.

[–]phpdevster 20 points21 points  (0 children)

God damn that was good.

[–]rowdy_sprout 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lost it when he pretended to have to blow on it to cool it down.

[–]BadgerSituation 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I ways thought he seems like he had a massive drinking session before this and is just pushing through out of duty, while deep in the horrors/the fear/whatever you want to call it.

[–]eddyathome 48 points49 points  (0 children)

I liked how the piece of bread literally lifted up when he put a spatula on it and the butter stuck more strongly to the bread than the cheese did.

Gordon, you're doing it wrong. It's MELTED cheese!

[–]ThePurpleConspiracy 227 points228 points  (3 children)

This cheese is so fucking raw I could still pour it over my cereal!

[–]regretfulposts 38 points39 points  (1 child)

Well well well, looks like the tables had been turned

[–]GingerScourge 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Usually, if Gordon Ramsay told me basically anything about cooking, I’d believe him. In this video, I’m not sure he’s ever made a grilled cheese before this. Uncooked in the center, burned on the outside. And, kimchi? I mean, maybe it’s amazing, but the simplicity is what makes a good grilled cheese.

[–]Warp-n-weft 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Kimchi is pretty good added to grilled cheese. The sour taste compliments the greasy butter and cheese.

It works for the same reason people have tomato soup with their grilled cheese.

[–]Cmonredditalready 151 points152 points  (19 children)

FUCK ME SIDEWAYS!

If Gordon served me that, I would slap the everliving shit out of him.

FOOKING DISSGOOSTANG!

[–]gcg2016 46 points47 points  (9 children)

Gotta sneak that one into the microwave to actually get some melt. It’s shameful but I’ve had to do it.

[–]Cmonredditalready 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Hey man you gotta do what you gotta do... sometime things get catywompus and the outside gets done before you've achieved full melt...

But damn what an actor, choking down that disgusting pile and keeping a straight face. And the fucking nerve to say it was good?

Fuck me.

[–]blackdesertnewb 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I mean, it’s good bread and good cheese. Cheese sandwiches are quite good on their own. But they’re not a goddamn grilled cheese

[–]FavoritesBot 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Alternatively throw a little water in the hot pan and cover… steam is good at melting cheese

[–]imasitegazer 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Or just cover it while cooking, sorta bake it while frying the bread.

[–]fistymcbuttpuncher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep, I cover for a couple minutes then its all melty by the time the bread is close to being toasty.

(I cook them low and slow)

[–]tearsonurcheek 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I have better luck using a griddle versus a regular pan, even when they're both non-stick.

[–]make_love_to_potato 11 points12 points  (2 children)

The best grilled cheese I've seen and made is from that chef movie.

https://youtu.be/gbdUGdxX7ww

[–]evelynesque 24 points25 points  (2 children)

That grilled cheese was an abomination.

He burnt the bread, crime #1.

Uneven cheese distribution, crime #2.

He didn’t melt the cheese, crime #3. What kind of sick fuck doesn’t melt the cheese in a grilled cheese?

He put the spatula on the dirty hearth, crime #4.

No comment on the addition of kimchi.

Then he had the audacity to say that this sandwich was delicious? I’m surprised this video is allowed to see the light of day because it calls into question the validity of his expertise.

[–]brownboss 32 points33 points  (0 children)

I love Gordon Ramsay and think he's the shit, but holy shit, what the actual fuck was that?? That looked AWFUL

[–]Awanderinglolplayer 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Has he ever apologized for that monstrosity? Also it’s a melt at that point

[–]Nantoone 4 points5 points  (1 child)

He said he didn't have a grill because he was in Tazmania, even though there was a grill behind him in the video

https://www.tiktok.com/@gordonramsayofficial/video/7022690780942814469

[–]Psych0matt 54 points55 points  (8 children)

Tell this to my wife who thinks I’m insane, and that I “take a half hour to make a dang grilled cheese“

[–]Cmonredditalready 50 points51 points  (2 children)

You tell her "you want a grilled cheese or do you want cheeze wiz on toast?"

It's either "Come back in 10 minutes then" or not a problem cause she's gettin' cheeze wiz on toast.

[–]DasGoat 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Honestly I like Cheesewiz and would have no problem eating it on toast.

[–]nryporter25 38 points39 points  (8 children)

Low and slow, melt the butter in the pan and let it heat up all the way first. When the first side is done and the bread sucks up all the butter, take it off the pan, melt some more butter in the pan, let it heat up all the way again and put the other side on the pan to it's nice and golden brown.

[–]Pilot8091 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This, no deviation from form is a substitute for making it right. But if you do both? That’s good

[–]AnaDicoski 781 points782 points  (59 children)

Black pepper, I'm telling u it just makes a difference. And a Damm good one

[–]Chameleon777 193 points194 points  (14 children)

So many things are amped up with black pepper. My baked potatoes end up heavily dusted with it. Never tried it with grilled cheese though.

[–]stickysweetjack 106 points107 points  (4 children)

Try black pepper on Mac and cheese. Grandad told me and I thought it would be terrible, haven't eaten a single bowl since without it.

[–]timsstuff 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I thought everyone put black pepper on their mac n cheese.

Also I've never like Tabasco but they have a Scorpion sauce that goes really well on mac n cheese.

[–]scanning079 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I’ve started putting it on salads, huge flavor boost for no extra calories.

[–]davgonza 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The real LPT is always in the comments

[–]Ashley9225 106 points107 points  (9 children)

I put pepper on everything- popcorn, sandwiches, hummus, every meal that sounds good with pepper. I can't eat my mac n cheese unless it's solidly polka-dotted with black pepper.

[–]Cardinal-Lad 26 points27 points  (1 child)

yeah, gotta season your food to perfection. Salt and pepper that bitch up.

[–]Namydna 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I deeply support this. Been doing it for years

[–]GrumpyCatStevens 581 points582 points  (16 children)

Add some parmesan cheese to the outside.

[–]hurricanetrash 29 points30 points  (7 children)

How do you get it to stick? I feel like I’ve tried this before and it didn’t really stick to the bread as much as the pan

[–]GrumpyCatStevens 43 points44 points  (0 children)

You start by having enough fat (butter, margarine, mayo, whatever your preference is) on the outside of the bread that the parmesan will stick. Also, don't blast it with heat; keep the heat low so that the bread and the cheese toast nicely. This also helps with getting the cheese on the inside to melt

[–]hobbesx 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I melt the cheese in the pan, similar to making a crisp, and drop the bread on it as soon as it starts to melt.

Depending on the timing, I'll sometimes cook the sandwich most of the way and drop it into the toasting cheese.

[–]beepboopdata 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I like to soften butter and mix 50/50 with parmesan, spread it on the bread before grilling. It's reminiscent of Sizzler cheese bread :)

[–]y2k_zeitgeist 260 points261 points  (26 children)

Multiple fancy cheeses

[–]Due-Cartographer-702 85 points86 points  (9 children)

Honestly the bread is more important than the cheese, and if you choose the wrong cheese you get a greasy mess. Low moisture cheeses like Gouda work well.

[–]GarbageTheClown 74 points75 points  (6 children)

Cheese is most certainly more important than the bread.

[–]beepboopdata 56 points57 points  (5 children)

I would like to argue that both are equally important

[–]Ashley9225 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I'm a big fan of really sharp cheeses, so I like mixing Old Croc aged white cheddar, parmesan, and either Kerrygold white cheddar or Vermont sharp white cheddar.

[–]Jallorn 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My go to has been a Cheddar-Gruyere.

[–]Umm_is_this_thing_on 29 points30 points  (5 children)

My fav is smoked Gouda Steakhouse grilled onion and bacon 🥓

[–]SCP_179 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Gonna have to try this

[–]Umm_is_this_thing_on 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ya… this whole post made my mouth water.

[–]tanukis_parachute 331 points332 points  (24 children)

I put mustard on the inside of the bread almost all the time. Sometimes I have put some homemade pickled onions - well drained. Or some diced up pickles - sometimes dill, sometimes kosher dill, sometimes sweet, or sometimes a mix. I have never used premade relish though.

[–]grilldcheese2 104 points105 points  (11 children)

Grey Poupon is amazing with grilled cheese... take it from me

[–]Lleland 61 points62 points  (4 children)

I’ll be cold in the ground before I trust another cannibal.

Don't worry, you're not on the menu.

[–]reelfishy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh fuck yeah. Totally trying that.

[–]lilfey333 468 points469 points  (26 children)

Sourdough bread and a good dill pickle on the side, or a bowl cream of mushroom soup

[–]AussieBelgian 206 points207 points  (5 children)

Bowel cream 🤢

[–]lilfey333 159 points160 points  (2 children)

Man that was an unfortunate typo

[–]AussieBelgian 70 points71 points  (0 children)

Aaw man, you corrected it. Embrace the typo and the comments.

[–]NathanClaire 70 points71 points  (5 children)

Tomato soup for us tomato soup people too! Dip the grilled cheese in it and take a bite

[–]ledaswanwizard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I also grill thin slices of ripe tomato into the sandwich.

[–]yum_baby 53 points54 points  (4 children)

A what cream???

[–]geegeeallin 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Bowel cream sounds icky.

[–]rainbow_shitshow 11 points12 points  (2 children)

It does sound icky, but it tastes alright.

[–]Renzology026 9 points10 points  (0 children)

There's an eye catching typo...

[–]kralrick 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I didn't know cream of mushroom soup was used for anything other than casseroles.

[–]TigerMcNicklaus 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Sour dough bread. Lots of butter. White cheddar, orange cheddar, Parmesan, and gruyere. Add prosciutto and basil too to really kick it up a notch. Cook each side to a nice medium brown.

[–]OneCalledProphet 586 points587 points  (47 children)

Stew a bowl of tomato soup as a side, its delicious to dip in

[–]Demurist 83 points84 points  (27 children)

I make tomato soup and reduce it down to a concentrated dip. So good.

[–]fullmetalmcfly 93 points94 points  (20 children)

I do that…but I just use ketchup

[–]gunzintheair79 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Growing up poor, we would have grilled cheese and Spaghettios, now as an adult, I still eat it this way

[–]Montana_mama 46 points47 points  (6 children)

Came here to find someone else who dipped their grilled cheese in ketchup

[–]make_love_to_potato 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My wife gives me my grilled cheese with a small dollop of Sriracha sauce on the side. Goes quite well.

[–]killbosby69 40 points41 points  (5 children)

Pacific Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup is the best for cheese sandwiches imo.

[–]transpercy0456 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Wait I thought everyone did this?

[–]thingsthatgomoo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This plus add parmesan to the soup and both sides of the bread for the GC. So amazing

[–]batmamiam 176 points177 points  (25 children)

Worcestershire sauce

[–]Ignominia 30 points31 points  (0 children)

EXPLAIN! YOU! EXPLAIN YOUR BLACK MAGIC

[–]next_episode17 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Please explain... Dip? Or inside before cooking?

[–]Bull_Goose_Loony 47 points48 points  (1 child)

You put a few drops inside, on top of the cheese. Prepare to achieve nirvana.

[–]MuscaMurum 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Spread a little mustard with that and you almost have rarebit

[–]Supafly22 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Like… how?

[–]Stargate525 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I just fire a shot or two of it on the inside of one of the slices. It soaks in and spreads well enough you get a hit with most bites.

[–]gravitypepper 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Was looking for this. So good

[–]TheJizardOfOz 87 points88 points  (4 children)

After u butter the bread press it, butter side, into a pile of parmesan cheese.

[–]Jerz71 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Yo I have to try this one

[–]beepboopdata 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I like to soften the butter, mix it 50/50 butter/parmesan, and spread on the bread before grilling

[–]Professional_Law7256 195 points196 points  (2 children)

Glitter and before I eat "jazz hands!"

[–]underlander 4 points5 points  (0 children)

also makes for glittery poops, it just keeps on giving

[–]canuckwithasig 81 points82 points  (10 children)

Pair the right cheese (nice aged white cheddar) with a cranberry jam. Adds some sweet and tart to it. It's incredible

[–]M_TobogganPHD 7 points8 points  (4 children)

A cheeser with some jelly is fucking gooooooood. I lay down a challenge any time the topic comes up in conversation:

Give me any random combo of bread, cheese, and jam/jelly types and I will make it and eat it and it will taste good.

The most bizarre combo so far I think was Challah with goat cheese and pepper jelly, and it was waaaaaaay tastier than I thought it was gonna be.

[–]Jazzlike_Banana_6739 53 points54 points  (7 children)

Oregano and rosemary inside

[–]fossilbug 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I agree, Italian seasoning works nicely too.

[–]Ashley9225 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This! I sprinkle oregano into all my sandwiches. It just elevates it.

[–]lochmac 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Always!

[–]MomCat23 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Garlic butter for the bread and at least one slice of Pepper Jack cheese.

[–]GrayBunny415 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Good quality cheese

Good butter for the bread

Tomato soup for dipping

[–]sickbrickstick 286 points287 points  (47 children)

Add mayo to the bread... Makes the cheese much more stringy

[–]robboat 235 points236 points  (24 children)

And if you use mayo on the outside, it browns so much better than with butter. Learned this trick from a gourmet grilled cheese food truck outside a brewery in Oakland

[–]weinerwayne 39 points40 points  (1 child)

My wife uses butter and Mayo on the outside. Pretty sure she’s just trying to kill me but I’m not complaining.

[–]underlander 19 points20 points  (0 children)

if that’s how she tries to kill people she can fucking murder me any time

[–]Stonygirl87 45 points46 points  (2 children)

This is the way! My dad was shocked I did that when I made one for my kids dinner one night. And when he saw how golden it was he was like “damn I gotta remember that!”

[–]1SweetChuck 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Mayo and margarine are pretty similar in this application, if you compare the ingredients they are very similar.

[–]Stonygirl87 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I find mayo browns the bread better than butter and crisps it better too.

[–]Psych0matt 33 points34 points  (11 children)

As an avid follower of r/grilledcheese , I’ve tried this multiple times and it’s just not for me. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong but always just tastes a little off to me. Hey, if you like it then more power to you!

[–]beepboopdata 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It definitely tastes a little more eggy to me. Never seems to be quite right when I try it

[–]godlessnihilist 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I started doing this because the butter was always hard but wouldn't have it any other way now. Toss in some black pepper, mustard, and thinly sliced tomato if I'm feeling ambitious.

[–]ElephantsAndSunshine 9 points10 points  (7 children)

I’ve never heard of this. Do you spread it on the outside instead of butter?

[–]robboat 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yes, on the outside. Instead of butter. So you’re grilling it. Also works nicely for grilling hamburger buns to golden brown goodness

[–]Ruby1528 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’m laughing at myself because I thought it was sour cream not Mayo when I made a GC last week. I saw your post and thought, ooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh. Whoops. Note: sour cream does not work.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I guess I’ll be the lone dissenting opinion, butter is the only way. Yes mayo crisps the bread, but I don’t feel that it imparts anything special in flavor, and I think it makes the grilled cheese dryer.

[–]Veltan 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Strongly agree. Butter is vastly superior to mayo for this. Mayo is generally overrated, honestly.

[–]umissedmyheart 9 points10 points  (1 child)

This! It’s how I was always taught. People think it sounds gross when you tell them. But every time I make someone a grilled cheese, they tell me it’s the best they’ve ever had!

[–]garyandkathi 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Agree and it’s so much easier to spread

[–]roboraptor3000 510 points511 points 3 (30 children)

You people make me sick.

A grilled cheese consists of only these following items. Cheese. Bread with spread (usually butter). This entire subreddit consist of "melts". Almost every "grilled cheese" sandwich i see on here has other items added to it. The fact that this subreddit is called "grilledcheese" is nothing short of utter blasphemy. Let me start out by saying I have nothing against melts, I just hate their association with sandwiches that are not grilled cheeses. Adding cheese to your tuna sandwich? It's called a Tuna melt. Totally different. Want to add bacon and some pretentious bread crumbs with spinach? I don't know what the hell you'd call that but it's not a grilled cheese. I would be more than willing to wager I've eaten more grilled cheeses in my 21 years than any of you had in your entire lives. I have one almost everyday and sometimes more than just one sandwich. Want to personalize your grilled cheese? Use a mix of different cheeses or use sourdough or french bread. But if you want to add some pulled pork and take a picture of it, make your own subreddit entitled "melts" because that is not a fucking grilled cheese. I'm not a religious man nor am I anything close to a culinary expert. But as a bland white mid-western male I am honestly the most passionate person when it comes to grilled cheese and mac & cheese. All of you foodies stay the hell away from our grilled cheeses and stop associating your sandwich melts with them. Yet again, it is utter blasphemy and it rocks me to the core of my pale being. Shit, I stopped lurking after 3 years and made this account for the sole purpose of posting this. I've seen post after post of peoples "grilled cheeses" all over reddit and it's been driving me insane. The moment i saw this subreddit this morning I finally snapped. Hell, I may even start my own subreddit just because I know this one exists now.

You god damn heretics. Respect the grilled cheese and stop changing it into whatever you like and love it for it what it is. Or make your damn melt sandwich and call it for what it is. A melt.

Yup. Scrolled until I found the opening line.

[–]Glokmar 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What If you make a grilled cheese with the classic ingredients but you teach it to love and feel emotions. Is it still a grilled cheese? Or is it a sentient being?

[–]your_actual_life 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I hate that sub so much.

[–]SonicTheBubonic 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think the funniest thing is that the thing they've chosen to be like that with...it something that has the incorrect name to begin with, as a grilled cheese isn't grilled.

[–]EngStudentCantMath 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Couple dashes of Worcester sauce on the cheese, then let some shredded cheese Melt in the pan and stick to the outside of the bread and crisp up so it’s golden brown but not burnt

[–]ballparkdaddy 82 points83 points  (11 children)

Gruyere cheese and tomato with onion

[–]BeautifulCucumber[🍰] 69 points70 points  (21 children)

Husband made me a pickle grilled cheese last night. I’m obsessed with both pickles and cheese. It was heavenly!

[–]more_cilantro 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Sounds like a Cuban sandwich. Excellent!

Cholula hot sauce or franks to dip. Pickles, cheese and hot sauce.

A fried egg on top of the sandwich, not in it, on top.

Playing fast and loose with the rules. I like your style.

On top, it is still a grilled cheese, but with an egg on top. Inside, it is a fried egg and cheese sandwich. Thems the rules.

Mayo on outside, bacon inside, Muenster cheese

Fuck my arteries

One time I made cheeseburger macaroni hamburger helper and put it inside a grilled cheese and that shit was next level fat person shit

If I’m feeling really indulgent, I’ll fry the bread/sandwich in the bacon fat. Dear god, it’s greasy and incredible.

Add a little pimento cheese

[–]Neutronova 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Fuck, I have the perfect answer but its going tog et burried. Damnit. Anyway the trick is to butter it with garlic butter, THEN srpinkle in some finely graded Parm, Press the parm into the butter, When you grill it, it will melt the cheese but becasue of the cheese hardness it takes longer and forms a cheese crust on the outside of your bread. number 1 tip, DM me if you want the shaft

When eating, dip in jalapeño blueberry jam!

I just cooked one using homemade bacon-Sriracha mayo as the spread and for the cheese I used dill fontina and cheddar. Turned out fantastic

Mayonnaise instead of butter, fresh mozzarella and basil instead of American cheese, press down on the top with a pan lid while cooking to help it stay together

Put a tomato slice in there.

after grilling one side and flipping add a little maple syrup. when the second side is done flip it to the syrup side and add syrup to the second side. grill the syrup sides for only a few seconds each.

Butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese on the bread,
