This is cheese toast...Or am I wrong??

I like to use white bread, swiss cheese, mushrooms and very thinly sliced onions. ( don't tell but I also put on some Miracle whip.First make your sandwich and then Butter both outsides of the bread... lay the bread on a sheet of tin foil and place in 400 degree oven. Bake until cheese is melting. Turn the broiler on if you want it toasty.

Yummy!

If I'm in a rush and have several to make for the family I whip out the pancake griddle. Makes great toasted cheese sandwiches in a very short time.

Onion in the middle is nice, too
sounds good. I like bacon and sometimes ham in the middle.

sounds tasty! I like to use Asagio cheese sometimes, or provolone instead of American or cheddar.

I do that too , melt butter in the pan first.

Just like that. And if you're making it for a kid (or me), use Velveeta cheese, and serve with soup for dipping.

Welcome to DC!! The OP wrote of toasted cheese, not toasted cheese sandwiches which is different. He/she didn't mention sandwiching the bread slices together. Apart from the heat issue, certain cheeses don't grill well and all they do is puff up and brown so you may wish to try a different cheese, one that is less processed perhaps.
