Not everyone is raised learning how to cook. One thing I LOVE about this site is sharing the differences and regional varieties to things I've become accustomed to while growing up. My sons are in their early-mid 20's and never "grasped" what I tried to teach; except they both prefer making their own meals rather than having fast food - therefore I think this is a fantastic addition to AR family! Thanks for sharing this staple recipe - my boys sure appreciate it too!

My 84-year-old Aunt makes these and adds some - or several - drops/dollops (i.e. to taste) of sundried tomato salad dressing to the cheese filling before flipping to cook the other side. Five stars w/ the SDT dressing!

What can you say about the original? I love grilled cheese it is a great hot meal with soup when it is just me for dinner. I like to add ham to mine.

I gave this a rating b/c I had to but I have made grilled cheese since I was little and I didn't need this recipe's help. Which leads me to some questions not to be rude but - do people really not know how to make a grilled cheese and can you really post a recipe such as this and take credit for it? I like to use my George Foreman grill for grilled cheese. Its easy quick healthy and virtually no clean up - you don't have to scrub a buttery pan.

Allrecipes wouldn't be truly have all recipes without this one and I wouldn't have thought to cook it had I not run across it while in stump as to what to make. Try some variations based upon what is available to you and what you like in a normal sandwich always good!

I personally like grilled cheese with processed cheese slices as it gets that ooey-gooeyness! At home I ALWAYS use onion and sometimes ham or turkey. I think I will try the suggestion of bacon like one reviewer said. Maybe try to mix an american slice with a swiss slice too it's nummy! Oh also I saw a tip on another toasted sandwich recipe from this site saying to keep it from getting soggy is to toast the bread first. It works and I'll never go back to the old way! I lightly toast the bread let it cool on wooden cutting board (so butter won't melt) then butter and grill.

What is better than a classically prepared grilled cheese? This is a great sandwich. I agree with TNT adding that tomato is a must!

Okay Mike - I was looking for a baked cheese sandwich and came across this. Then I was curious to find out why in the title this was a favorite? THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I MAKE MY GRILLED CHEESE! I did not know there was a recipe for a basic grilled cheese? Then again I think I have seen recipes on here for baked potatoes and fried eggs. I haven't come across toast yet but haven't looked! Either way I use somewhat less butter and sometimes 1 1/2 pieces of cheese. Cook the grilled cheese on no higher than 5 and only flip once. No flattening the grilled cheese with a spatula either! Follow this and you will get a buttery crispy delicious grilled cheese.
