Oh! I'd like that too...with either dijon mustard or a grainy mustard. Now I'll have to go to the store.

I like mine about as plain and boring as they come.

I keep Wonder bread on hand just for grilled cheese. Buttered Wonder, two slices of Land O' Lakes yellow American Cheese and a cast iron griddle is all that's involved.

Once in a while I'll get adventurous and throw a slice of ham or a couple of strips of crispy bacon on there....but mostly I like it just plain.

Now, as for accompaniment, it doesn't get any better than home made tomato basil soup.

Frank, I put cheese and onion slices on each on each of the three slices of bread and bake them individually.

To me, a grilled cheese sandwich is a nostalgic comfort food. Therefore, it stays pretty basic for me. Like the hot dog, it's best kept simple. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. (I just made that up ).

Some sliced bread, whatever is on hand. Some sliced cheese, usually American and whatever else I have. A skillet and butter.

Sometimes I add sliced tomato, or bacon, or ham. That's about it.

True...a plain ole grill cheese is comforting...but every once is a while.....carmelized onions, tomatos, 6 year old cheddar, montery jack and havarti....yum...oh..and on multi-grain.

I agree with Andy M., simple is good. I am going to try some
different cheeses tho, always use deli sliced American, but I
love most cheeses. Anyone tried a bit of blue thrown in?

I don't know if this would even still be considered a grilled cheese, but it's my favorite:

Pepper jack cheese, a couple slices of hard salami, turkey, sliced tomato, and sliced pepprochinis. YUM! It's just a great combination, all warm and gooey....
