What's your favorite grilled cheese sandwich?

My favorite is:
Rye bread with seeds, buttered on the outside. Equal amounts of Swiss gruyere and extra sharp cheddar layered twice, with large tomato slice in between. Browned on both sides in buttered nonstick skillet, then covered until cheese melts. Mmmmmmmmm!

Whole wheat bread buttered on the outside with 2 slices of smoked Gouda cheese with herb turkey in between. Brown the bread until the cheese is melted.

The possibilities are endles.. really anything goes when it comes to grilled cheese. I made one last week with roasted vegies, swiss cheese and sourdough bread.

I also like a good multi-grain bread, with cheddar cheese, a few slices of bacon, and a slice of tomato.

Fried bologna is awesome too with american cheese on wheat bread.

Multigrain whole wheat bread, outside buttered and dipped in parmasean reggiano, inside with fontina, guyere, and slivered roasted ham, mustard and mayo.

Or a bagette sliced thin, brushed with olive oil and toasted on both sides and Brie spread on it when still hot.

Heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet. Butter 2 slices of sourdough bread. Between the slices I add thinly sliced deli ham (usually a maple of some sort) and turkey (usually a smoked). Sliced deli cheese......I love a variety and then I smear on a spicy mustard.

A fav. grilled sandwich of mine is a play on panzanella – the traditional bread salad of Tuscany, in which stale peasant bread is dressed & softened w/ vinaigrette & tomato juice. My variation has whole slices of the Italian country loaf roasted w/ mozzarella (or goat cheese) plus grilled red bell peppers that have been brushed w/ balsamic vinegar & olive oil and then topped w/ the juicy salad.

Classic american on white bread, but MICROWAVED:

Toast 2 pieces of bread.
Butter the outside of the toasts.
Overlap 2 pieces of American on 1 slice so that it hangs over the sides of the toast just a bit. Top it with other slice.
Place on plate in microwave, heat just for a few seconds till melted cheese hangs over sides.
Take out, cool for a minute.
Thats the only way I make it now.

The very best of "grilled cheese" is, of course, the Monte Cristo sandwich...

The "French Toast" covers using a Euro bread, well soaked in egg and milk, double smoked ham, thinly sliced, and/or smoked turkey breast, some stinky Provolone slices in there to melt, fried in the traditional wafts of grease...

Nobody said this was supposed to be "heart-healthy"? did they...just relating "as good as it gets", even if you eat it with a knife and fork. instead of your fingers...
