It's the sauce you serve when you are eating an American. Spaghetti sauce with spaghetti, barbecue sauce with barbecue, taco sauce with tacos, enchilada sauce with enchiladas, etc.

YOU may call it plastic cheese ... the rest of us call it Grilled Cheese.

Maybe not all the rest of us. I call it plastic cheese too. Actually, here in Quebec it's called "slices", because there isn't enough cheese in it to call it cheese.

Again, not all American cheese is the processed food product. It is an actual cheese. And it is not remotely plastic. Though I have found that I do prefer the stuff you think is "plastic" for grilled cheese. I'll use either on a burger.

American Cheese slices come in 2 forms. There are "American Cheese" slices made with 2% milk and "American Cheese food product" slices made mostly with vegetable oil and water and hardly any milk. I never buy the latter. My brother insists the two are about the same, we argue about it.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are of Provolone and Swiss cheeses on good firm bread such as the Pumpernickel or the seedless Rye.

With pickles! Ha!

Hey you're forgetting an important ingredient in American CheeseFoodProduct - the bright yellow dye!

Though I'm pretty sure they use that in Colby, Longhorn, Cheddar, Velveeta, and butter as well, LOL!

In Quebec, butter, when coloured, is coloured with carotene.
