Ah-hah! So THIS is how you make a perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Step #5, low heat and frequent turn, was a revelation.

Before finding these instructions, I cooked grilled cheese sandwiches on medium-high, but this method resulted in the best we have ever had. Not just homemade, not just in a diner, but ever!

Followed the instructions exactly, except added some thinly sliced fresh tomatoes. Used Italian bread.

Thank you Little Old Me!

The slow-cooking / low-heat method works great (though it takes a very long time)! My husband says this is the best I've ever made. I usually place cheese on both sides of the bread and pop it in the broiler for 1 min, then toss it in the pan for 1 min per side on med-high heat. It's done from start to finish in about 5 min, but the consistency of the cheese isn't as good as this. :) Thanks.

A great basic, which I changed a bit. I used 9 grain bread and cheddar cheese. Thanks!

This is one of the things that my son and I feel is "all American" even though we are not residing there now. Thoroughly enjoyable to make and eat! Thanks.
