If you put put anything other than cheese in between the bread slices you are no longer making a grilled cheese sandwich and need to fuck right off.

I usually use a thick Texas style bread, real butter, 1 slice of mild cheddar and 1 slice of harvarti or meunster. I prefer Sharp cheddar in most situations, but mild just melts better. My wife's Earth Balance vegan whatever butter substitute is surprisingly acceptable.

I'm a heathen who dips in mustard, admittedly. Sometimes I feel like it's something only my dad, brother, and I do. Tomato soup and ketchup are also fine, but mustard is so good!

Although Kraft singles are considered a peasant cheese by some, they are really good for grilled cheeses.

You need sharp cheddar if you use any bread with a strong flavor of its own. Sometimes I'll do thick white bread which is decent in a pinch. Dipping in anything sounds gross.

But sharp is so dry and takes forever to melt. I need shit that melts. It's always a party when you've got havarti.

I've never had any issues getting sharp to melt.

And why the nine grain bread, out of curiosity? I'm not trying to chew oats and shit while I'm having a gooey sandwich. Not to be a pretentious prick, but that ruins mouthfeel for me.

That bread is the bread of gods. It's not chosen for grilled cheese because of the # of grains, it's chosen because it tastes the best.

whoah whoah whoah, buddy.  I completely agree with your first point, but if you're dipping it, I'm gonna claim that you are not eating a real grilled cheese.  I've dipped in tomato soup and in mustard.  Both are great!  Both are impure.  (Butter/margarine/oil/salt are ok - especially if their purpose is cooking the bread)

 

Anyway I voted "none" for dipping, but Vin Fiz for the ingredients.  I actually don't really know how to make grilled cheese!

 

I think plain bread is best, whether that's white, wheat, texas toast, etc.  Oats won't ruin it for me, but...I guess that's kinda like my sauce point: if you add oats, you're venturing too far away from bread+cheese.

 

The cheese has gotta be melty.  But it's also gotta taste great.  I wish I could make a grilled cheese with parmesan, for the taste...but it just doesn't liquefy.  My dad used to use Velveeta.

put some pickled jalapenos in it

 

my dead dad made the best grilled cheese.  typical white bread, butter to fry, 1 slice american cheese, iodized salt on top to finish

I don't care for cheddar in grilled cheese sandwiches, it tends to get a little oily and loses a lot of its flavor when it melts. The best cheese I've found is American, but not the packaged Kraft American, get the stuff in the deli that actually has flavor and texture.

 

This shit here:

Sometimes I like to add a slice of swiss, as swiss toasts and melts really nicely. A good dense sourdough is the ultimate bread for a grilled cheese. Also this poll is incomplete as it's missing the critical "Which fat do you use?" category, as any grilled cheese sandwich made without butter is a mockery and should be re-labelled a panini because that's what it fucking is eat my ass.

Grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup is the perfect pair during winter months. High grain bread is best because white bread is too plain for me.

As far as the most "enjoyable" grilled cheese experience is for me, I like to add bacon bits inside the grilled cheese and eat it with tomato soup. But if we're talking about purity then I'll have it plain with nothing on the side (and then I'll usually eat two because I'm a fat fuck and who the hell eats only one grilled cheese sandwich without a side those things are tiny).

When I'm not dipping a grilled cheese in tomato soup, I might make instant ramen and dip it in the broth. Yum.

I hear you, but: pickles. Try it. Thank me.

Also, "wheat" bread is made with a proportion (not too much, or that shit will never rise) of whole wheat flour. White flour is made from only the germ of the wheat.
