Talking What's your favorite grilled cheese sandwich?

I have a couple of friends coming over for a late lunch today, and when I asked one of them last night what she'd like to have, she said "anything you want to make but I'd also be happy with grilled cheese!" ohhh got that idea stuck in my head :) I like it with muenster and/or cheddar and might try it with gruyere too - between two fat slices of Italian bread with creamy tomato bisque - but just curious, what's your favorite grilled cheese sandwhich? (Kades, saw yours in a recent thread, looks incredible!)

Katie

Thank you Katie
My gang all love grilled cheese. French or Italian are our favorites..I dearly love Gruyere,or Fontina on them . I made this for everyone for lunch. Take a long loaf of Cibatta slice the long way and put on nice fat slices of Fontina or brie then top with a thin slices of either prociutto or a danish ham,brush outside with butter, messy but yummy, put on stove top grill or long electric skillet,grill till cheese melts,then remove sandwich and open it up and brush with a mix of Dijon and mayo. add some arugula or baby spinach.Just about any soup will be fine, but I love a creamy tomato and some sliced pears sliced and chilled.Emmm. Enjoy your company
kades
BTW: my favorite changes from time to time so many cheeses, it's hard to choose.

I have found making straight forward grilled cheese sandwiches, you know, w/sliced cheese, that adding a slice of tomato works well, so does adding a couple slices of dill pickle, (one for each slice) is also tasty. So try this with the above mentioned ideas maybe??

1 slice each - thin sliced Dak brand imported ham (browned first), swiss and muenster (ham in the middle) on seeded rye. toasted in a pan with butter.

My current favorite is using the Pepperidge Farms sourdough with two slices of Kraft cheddar singles and some tomato (put that on after grilling).

Not fancy-schmancy but tastey.

cotswold cheese (a sharp cheddar like cheese with green onions through it!) tomato, bacon, on pumpernickel with a slight smear of dijon, served with tomato soup (touch of smoked habanero flake and fresh basil chiffonade)

It isn't, though I think sometimes people try to fancy up things that should be simple. Just my opinion on it though.

like half a stick ofbutter in a copper clad pan, 'taliano bread, land-o-lakes wht. american, (2-3 slices), & soup. smushed flat.
there was a phase where i loved grilled cheese & there were so many cheeses/breads that were great. provolone & avacodo, that's delicious.
