Re: Do you enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches?

That is a creative use of a slot toaster ... I will always prefer a toaster oven as it does open face cheese sandwiches, crisps leftover pizza, singe servings of just about any casserole ....

 

The thing I love best about grilled cheese sandwiches is the combination of moist and crisp from the buttered side of the bread.  I used to get them from the restaurant next to the Architecture department in college.  I found a grilled cheese sandwich about 10:30 pm helped me get past midnight on those long overnights in the studio.

You know, I've *never* gotten that to work.  Bread burns not browns and the cheese doesn't melt, or the bread just kind of dries out and the cheese still doesn't melt.  I'm no slouch in the kitchen but its something that just doesn't work for me.

Dean, do you just set that toaster up and then sit on the other side of the room with your mouth open waiting for it to pop?

Yes I do. For a GOOD  grilled chesse for those that do it the right way on a griddle instead of using butter spread mayo on the butter side of the bread and cook that way.

good thought.

I often use mayo as the oil for fish on the griddle, on the grill of course.

Okay, everything in this thread sounds good, but, this has me drooling the most.

 

I do tend to do grilled cheese on the griddle, just a light swipe of mayo on the outside to add a bit of crunch and sweetness with the butter.

 

I have also has a toaster oven always. Broiled open-faced sandwiches are quite nice there, but, I typically only do that with bread I couldn't grill (like a roll or french loaf, etc).

 

Of course, this thread is making me hungry, and throwing off my schedule. My usual Friday lunch is a grilled cheese on texas toast with a cup of clam chowda.

Here is a video clip showing how to create a "Crab Grilled Cheese" nominated for the best sandwich  in America by Adam Richman (man vs. food).  It come form a restaurant in Portsmouth NH about 40 minutes away from the Autodesk office in Manchester NH.

Yuuuuummmmmmm. I need to head out to the northeast just to enjoy some of the seafood. Don't get me wrong, we have great seafood here, but...man, lobster rolls and crab grilled cheese sandwiches are hard to resist!

Jeff,

 

Oooh, THAT looks pretty tasty. I'm not sure it would have ever occurred to me to put crab on a gc sandwich.

 

Last night was leftover night in our house, but, we didn't quite have enough of each dish left over to make a full meal for all of us, so dessert was grilled cheese sandwiches on texas toast (colby jack and cheddar).

 

Very oozy. NOM!
