Does anybody use Texas Toast for their grilled cheese sammies? (Texas Toast is very thickly sliced white bread.) It's really common here, but I wondered if it is elsewhere.

I did it and I still do not understand why you would want to mash your grilled cheese.

Also something to consider is that certain types of cheeses melt better than others. I love a good grilled cheese sandwich with cheddar, jarlsberg, or brie (depending on my mood), all of which melt really easily. Perhaps you could try a different type or brand of cheese.

Oh I love Jarlsberg in a grilled cheese sandwich. I need to put some good quality deli mustard on it though. That flavor combo just works so well!

I take 2 slices of bread, put them together and set them in a wide slot toaster so that only one side of the bread gets toasted. I take them out of the toaster and put the cheese on the toasted side and put them back together so the untoasted sides are on the outside. I spread a very thin coating of mayo on the outside slices (instead of butter) and put the sandwich into either a hot frying pan or a panini maker. Gruyere or Fontina or sharp Cheddar or a combination.

Not common here, but I have done it that way and seen it done that way. My preferred method matches UB's, butter the bread and smooshing is acceptable and encouraged.

We mainly use Texas Toast for some great garlic bread on the grill or for french toast.

I haven't made a toasted cheese sandwich since this thread got started
It has become too technical for me.

Just revisiting this thread.

Seems to me it is cheese toast we are talking about, not grilled cheese.

If you want fully melted grilled toast without browning the cheese you need to bake it, not broil it.

Personally, I want the cheese browned off on top for cheese toast.

For grilled cheese sandwich... stove top is the way to go.
