    Grilled cheese sandwiches have to have butter (or margarine) on the outer crusts before grilling. I melt a small amount in the skillet then grill the sandwich.

    I just put a slice of velveta cheese and some Miracle Whip (not mayo) between 2 slices of bread, butter the outside of the bread and grill in a cast iron skillet.  add a dill pickle and some chips on the side.......heaven.

    if you really like grilled cheese try a peanut butter and chedder grilled cheese. trust me once you try it you will be addicted to its gooey goodness

    America, have you never heard of a toastie? Same recipe, but you butter the outside of the bread. It might not be as healthy, but it will taste much better. You can do this in a normal grill, I think you call this broiling. Someone help me here... what is broiling? If you put something under a grill, it's grilling, if you boil something it's boiling, what is broiling?????????

    That's what you do for a normal grilled cheese in a pan, but i don't know how to do that.

    no, broiling is when you just heat from the top of an oven; it heats faster than baking, but there is little or no heat underneath; if you put your oven on broil, you can see; also, since it is hotter than baking, you need to leave the oven door cracked open; closest thing to grilling without a grill, for the most part

    Oh sorry I was falling asleep when I wrote the comment but I make them all the time now but it wasn't caps now that I'm looking at it ??? but again I thank you for this wonderful grilled cheese it is amazing how something so simple is so good keep up the good work.

    The best grilled cheese is the one you eat with a dill pickle. Take a bite of the grilled cheese, and then a bite of the pickle. It's a party in your mouth, guaranteed!

    grate cheese instead for a very nice melting and toast the inside part first friend told me that secret makes nice grilled cheese thank you georgeforman for a nice panni press=]

    Oh man that sounds delicious. I have my own way of making the greatest grilled cheese sandwich of all time. It has bacon inside of it. That's really all there is to it. Mmm, bacon.
