Brings back college days

I lived on grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch when I was a student at the University of Miami, Florida. Can't recall the last time I ate one since. Maybe I overdosed?

NAchef, those pics made my mouth water! When it comes to grilled cheese I guess I'm a traditionalist (read: boring). American cheese (deli sliced, not the "wallet cheese" in plastic wrap), sturdy white bread, touch of butter on the outside if you're grilling. It tastes even better if you grill your sandwich in a pan that has just been used to saute/caramelize onions. mmmmm Just a hint of onion. Gotta put a slice of tomato in it, too. As a kid I liked sweet pickle slices slipped into the melted cheese. Now I'll have to spend the rest of the winter experimenting.

My favorite "grilled" cheese sandwich is done under the broiler! Ate this the first time at a (now defunct) vegetarian restaurant in Cleveland just up from University Circle. Slab of whole wheat bread, very thinly sliced fresh mushrooms (although I suppose you can use whatever veggies you want) and a stack of thin slices of cheddar or swiss cheese. Grill until cheese is gooey melty, veggies are warm, and edges of bread are browning. Heavenly!

coookies, hope you and your friends had a nice warm visit since the weather outside is so "winter".

For breakfast- 3 slices of Pepperidge Farms sourdough topped with sliced cheddar or manchego (not all manchego is created equal) topped with sliced onion. Baked in toaster oven until onions soften and cheese is bubbly.

3 korn rye bread, sliced very thin, 1 slice aged cheddar (my latest was Balderson 6 year old which I can only get around Christmas at Costco), shaved ham or prosciutto, 1 slice Gruyere and thin sliced tomato, with garlic butter on the outside and grilled on our panini press! It is my newfound favourite!
Yes we do, LP! Great idea about the garlic butter - I've gotta try it! (I wish I let myself eat prosciutto - well, maybe just this once...:)

For some reason it's not grilled cheese unless it's white bread, buttered with Velveeta slices, then grilled in a pan on the stove. Everything else sounds wonderful, but they would just be hot cheese sandwiches for me. Oh and I have to have tomato soup with it.
