In the US this is called a grilled cheese and is usually made with Kraft singles, in Australia it is called a cheese on toast, and is usually made with Coon brand cheese

What is it all over other parts of the world? How do you enjoy it?
>>
In Denmark we just call it toast. Usually made with ham and any kind of cheese really, cause we actually have a wide selection.
>>
I like using bread dipped in egg and ham with mine. But it's been a long time. A little Dijon to give it a zip.

>not using Muenster cheese

shit nigga
>>
>>7243999
No shilling. It's made with any type of tasty (AKA cheddar not made in Cheddar), not specifically Coon. I tend to use Bega, myself. Sometimes I'll use colby instead. Or, when I'm feeling particularly devilish, I'll have a combination of tasty and colby,

I've always called it toasted cheese. I've noticed people seem to have started calling them toasties, too. I don't know where that came from. From my perspective, businesses just suddenly started selling them with that name. Must have been a regional thing that some company picked up on.

In the US, this is the word definition differences from other parts of the world.
"Grill" can mean griddle (flat iron plate cooking surface such as short order burger and breakfast joints use) and/or open grate (lit from below) BBQ grills. Of course a nonstick pan to griddle is what most people do with grilled cheese.
We say broil if it's heated from a source above it, what some people call salamanders.
Baking is using a oven lower heating element to bring it to a temperature degree of choice.

No one would use unsafe-flammable butter in a toaster, which is really a machine to broil both sides of a bread slice at once, done vertically. However a toaster oven is really a broiler or mini-oven with bake functions, and you could. A foreman/press or sandwich maker is really a doublesided nonstick pan that is griddling both sides, aka grilled.

So, you see, it's all regional semantics as to why this is called a toastie, but in my opinion, when bread is toasted with the application of fat and surface contact, though it's crisped like toast, it's grilled/griddled. So I think the Americans are doing the terminology more correctly overall.

Got a source for that? Sounds like an opinion.

I think most grilled cheese is made to accompany a bowl of soup, or because it's convenient and quick snack with items people have on hand anyway, butter bread and cheese of some sort. It's gourmet when the bread is awesome, or the cheese has flavor, or it's got some ripe tomato sliced into it, or smoky bacon.

Some of it, especially the California stuff is, but in the northern parts of america there is plenty of excellent, easy to find cheese.

>Fucking idiots outside of our borders. And so obsessed with every little thing we do
In a recent article I read, something like 40% of the news in European media is american stories. It's obsession. And, on the flipside, within the US, no one really watches national news if they aren't under the age of 35, and really international news is only watched by immigrants.

WELLLLLLLL not so much. Most of the processed American cheese is only partially diary fat, and more whey solids homogenized with solidified hydrogenated vegetable oil (extracted from corn and soy biomatter by a petroleum-derived caustic solvent like Hexane) by calcium citrate. Where cheese that's been made from lactose fermenting into lactase quickly makes the sugars, proteins, and fats readily bioavailable due to gut flora suited towards that, the same gut flora isn't really made for what is essentially chugging down unsaturated high-triglyceride trans fatty acids and denatured protein formed into a rubber sheet.

So, yeah, not super good for you. People talk about HFCS as being a serious contributor to diabetes because of the high triglyceride index, but it's not consumed in the quantities nearing industrial cheese product. I mean, imagine pumping high fructose corn syrup over a tray of ballpark nachos...

>only partially diary fat, and more whey solids homogenized with solidified hydrogenated vegetable oil (extracted from corn and soy biomatter by a petroleum-derived caustic solvent like Hexane) by calcium citrate
Sounds like you are just inserting a bunch of technical terms and chemical names to make it sound scary as that process is not inherently bad. Why would your gut flora be better able to metabolize animal derived fat than plant derived fat? Also, hexane is not caustic
>and denatured protein
Note that your flora and your digestive system has no way of knowing whether the proteins they metabolize is in its native state or denatured, and digestion is designed specifically to denature them and break them apart.
>lactose fermenting into lactase
Lactase is the enzyme that catalyzes the metabolizing of lactose, and the process of cheesemaking is more about protein chemistry (by denaturing and coagulating proteins) than sugar chemistry

HFCS is sugar
Its almost exactly the same thing as honey, which is used by all sorts of cultures throughout time

If you think you are healthier drinking a soda made with cane or beet sugar than one made of corn syrup, you should read up on biochemistry. Soda is bad for you because it has a fucking lot of sugar, not because the sugar in it is HFCS

fructose is a naturally occuring chemical, more importantly though being natural is not a good or bad thing

Bears are natural and they will fucking murder you, meanwhile sex robots are artificial and probably would be fun. Its entirely insignificant whether something is natural, its just a marketing buzzword

Poor people in America used to use coon cheese too, it doesn't melt though, just gets soft for a couple minutes then turns hard and plasticy. We had to go to this giant warehouse, called focushope, to get ours

>this is what poor non Americans really think
Thanks for the laugh my man. Brb, going to spend $200 on a meal for 10 people with more quality ingredients than you have ever seen in a single setting, including 10 year aged cheddar made on a farm 40 miles outside of town by a family that's been making cheese since before your grandparents were born. And it's readily stocked at the grocery store down the street.

>HFCS is sugar

HFCS if Fructose. Granulated sugar is Sucrose. They are both sugars, but they are different sugars.
>>
>>7249852
HFCS is a mixture of glucose and fructose. Sucrose is a sugar made up of those same two molecules which are then separated in your body

None of these sugars is more "real", and there is no conclusive evidence that calories coming from one of these sugars is better than calories coming from another.
>>
>>7249869
>Sucrose is a sugar made up of those same two molecules which are then separated in your body

At that point we may as well say that all sugars are made up of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon, so all sugars are the same.

>there is no conclusive evidence that calories coming from one of these sugars is better than calories coming from another.

I never made any comments on the subject. What is clear is that when given the choice, people prefer the taste of non-HFCS products to the HFCS versions.
>>
>>7249884
>At that point we may as well say that all sugars are made up of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon, so all sugars are the same.
Not really. Your body has enzymes specifically there to convert sucrose into glucose and fructose, which your body can then metabolize in basic cellular respiration
>What is clear is that when given the choice, people prefer the taste of non-HFCS products to the HFCS versions.
No, what is clear is that the marketers of granulated sugar have done a pretty good job. This is like saying Bud Light is the best beer because so many people chose it. The ain reason some consumers prefer sucrose is because they have been tricked into thinking it is better for them.
>I never made any comments on the subject.
This whole thing began with this comment
> People talk about HFCS as being a serious contributor to diabetes because of the high triglyceride index, but it's not consumed in the quantities nearing industrial cheese product. I mean, imagine pumping high fructose corn syrup over a tray of ballpark nachos...

>As opposed to the poor put upon Corn Growers Association?
The corn people have done a pretty good job lobbying to get them in a position to offer their product at a better price point, but the sucrose people have clearly done a better job marketing their product to consumers when so many people are convinced drinking sugar water made from cane sugar is better for them and tastes better than sugar water made with a glucose/fructose mixture

Its like the people who still think aspartame, or vaccines, or GMO crops, or MSG are bad. A little effective marketing can create these persistent myths in the minds of the uneducated for a long time

And by that retard logic nothing is artificial. Artificial fruit flavours are now legitimate thanks to the power of Common Core.

Now tell me how 6 goes into 24.

I have a question. If your corn syrup is so superior, why is it literally only America that uses it, the same America where corn is dirt cheap due to subsidy.

Why does no premium brand use it in any other country if your claims of superiority are so true? The taste would speak for itself.
>>
>>7249930
>The corn people have done a pretty good job lobbying to get them in a position to offer their product at a better price point
You mean given so much government subsidy money to make it cheaper than sugar?

Why are you trying to say American corporations are anything other than a business?
>>
>>7250239
>If your corn syrup is so superior, why is it literally only America that uses it
US government subsidies

It is equal in quality, and it is cheaper in america because of government subsidies to corn farmers. I never said it was higher quality, its the exact same quality. (though one benefit it does have is being liquid which is much easier for producers to handle than granulated sugar, but this isn't enough to make up for the price difference outside america)
>>
>>7249406
that's simply not true. I don't know about you, but I've got very fond memories of my childood since the age of 7 or so, when traveling around with my parents and getting to taste all kind of things. It definitely shaped my eating habits of today, introducing me to a broader horizon from early on.
And as the other anon allready tried to point out several times, there's also a health factor when it comes to cheap yet fatty/sugary food.
>>
>>7250173
What the hell are you talking about? Why can't Americans speak fucking English?

I'm not being cheap, this is just on a whole different scale that I'm used to and I'm surprised. I'm german, and if you just get your toast and cheese seperately, like just the plain normal stuff and nothing fancy, you could make about twentie grilled cheese's for those 4 dollars. I'm not even exaggerating
>>
>>7250236
whoops. this. >>7250271

Britain: Its called cheese on toast and is made by using any cheese, but usually chedder.
>>
>>7243999
In the north of the UK if its not been said already we typically call it a Cheese toastie - though normally it would be a ham and cheese toastie or a tuna cheese melt (which is also a toastie just named melt)

Toasted paninis are also popular to make essentially what you'd call a grilled cheese too
>>
>>7250277
Fellow UK bro here, I'd argue that a cheese on toast is completely different - american grilled cheese is more like a toastie/panini

UK cheese on toast is as it says on the tin, it doesn't have 2 slices of bread but just one and if you're a top british bloke you'd slather that in brown sauce or branston pickle

In america, the term grilled cheese is usually reserved for instances with no meat. If there is a meat on the sandwich the name is usually based on that meat
>>
>>7250295
Huh, I didn't know that seppos used the term "spastic" as an insult like us.

Anywho, speak correct English, you colonial peasant. I refuse to lower myself to your level and use the wrong names for things.
