I’d say a grilled cheese sandwich is my favorite comfort food. When served with a bowl of tomato soup, I’m instantly transported back to my childhood and good memories of my mom’s tender loving care. This was my classic “sick” meal, and it never failed to make me feel better. ~ Bobbi
Although many diners and delis will use a processed cheese like Velveeta, we always real Cheddar cheese for our grilled cheese sandwiches. First of all, we think it simply tastes better, but we also try to avoid additives that are at best unnecessary and at worst detrimental to our health.
If you’ve never had a grilled cheese sandwich made with real cheese, now’s the time to try. It’s easy! Use any cheese you want, but some of the best melting cheeses are Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Swiss, Havarti, Gouda, mozzarella and provolone. Many others work as well, so be creative.
Another trick for making a fabulous grilled cheese sandwich is to combine sliced and grated cheese, or use all grated cheese for a better melt.
