>>12037274I make mine with tuna.
>>12037274We make grilled cheese with ham and call it “handy toast” where I live.
>>12037286That is a melt. It is also a great form of toasted sandwich, but it is no more a grilled cheese than a Reuben is.
>>12037274is the mayo on the outside thing any good?
>>12037370Yes, it toasts very crispy without the greasiness of butter.
>>12037311Based purist. How do you.feel about Mayo on the outside instead of butter?
Why does my grilled cheese only melt on the edges? Do I need to use a smaller hob?
>>12038156Cooking too quickly at too high a temperature.
>>12037311You’re a fucking melt, anon.
>>12038163I think I should stop using the largest part of the stove. On med-low it's still hot as fuck

>>12038156Sometimes, your cooking surface is non-ideal for tall elements like a grilled cheese. Here's the fix: if you're cooking in a pan, find a cover for that pan. If it's on a griddle, find a metal object that will cover the item being cooked.Then, splash about a tablespoon of water into the pan or onto the griddle, and immediately cover the water and food item. Wait a minute, then uncover and continue to cook normally. The heat transfer from the steam will have perfectly melted any stubborn cheese.
>>12037274I like mine stuffed with velveeta. It's a bit ghetto but it's my childhood.
>>12040438American cheese is terrible for grilled cheese. Sharp cheddar or bust
>>12040320Is he trying to trick me into ruining my toaster?
>>12040465Sharp cheddar is too sharp, overwhelms the toasted buttery bread and the tomato soup. Mild cheddar if you need to be a douchebag, but American is best.
>>12040447Velveeta slices were engineered for grilled cheese. There is no shame in consuming such a sandwich.>>12040479Split sharp cheddar with low-moisture mozzarella is outstanding. Shred both into a bowl, toss, and apply to the sandwich. The moz fixes the poor melt properties of the cheddar.
