How do you make your grilled cheese?
>bread?
>cheese?
>meat, spices, or soup?
>what do you cook it in? Oil, butter, or mayo?

Pic is what I just made. I used some cheapo whole wheat bread with sharp cheddar and some Dijon. Added a fried egg ontop. Thats some fine store brand canned tomato soup with Cajun seasoning added to it.

Looks pretty good

IMHO Grilled cheese is one of those things where you either need to stick with the basics OR go all-out. There's no room for middle ground.

Basics:
Crappy white supermarket bread, Kraft single, perhaps served with tomato soup on the side.

All-out:
Crusty rye bread, St. Andre, Camembert or Brie. (or all 3) Braised short rib meat, caramelized shallots & wine reduction.

Another good combination is sourdough, bacon, sauteed slices of pears, and herbed goat cheese.

What the fuck did that person do to that poor sandwich?
>>
>>7169912
he put an egg on top of it
>>
>>7169918
An egg that wasn't even cooked. It's an abomination and an insult to that sandwich.
>>
>>7169908
how do you braise ribs
>>
>>7169921
It looks like it's cooked over easy. I don't know if maybe not a thing where you live, but it tastes good and many people like it. To be fair the flavor is best when the egg is fresh. Lots of people swear by keeping chickens just so they can have fresh eggs.

Also you can't really insult an sandwich. It's a dish that depends experimentation, or so I feel anyways.
>>
>>7169931
>"i'm going to half ass cook an egg and then eat it instead of cooking it entirely"
Eggs are not steak, you cook them all the way through.
>>
>>7169938
You might cook them all the way through and that's fine. I myself prefer my eggs a bit runny especially when cooked sunny side up. Is it disease or germs you're worried about?
>>
>>7169938
>Eggs are not steak, you cook them all the way through.

But that's wrong.
>>
>>7169943
You have bad taste in eggs.

>>7169945
It's easier to lie to someone than convince them that theyve been lied to.
>>
>>7169947
I'm sorry you feel that way. I hope you enjoy your eggs the way you like them and nobody makes you eat them not cooked to your satisfaction.
>>
>>7169947
You do realise that much like steak, it's perfectly okay for a healthy person to eat raw egg?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a runny yolk in a fried, boiled or poached egg. In fact poached eggs should *always* have a runny yolk.
>>
>>7169947
and what you are doing here is lying
>>
>>7169924

Sear the ribs along with some aromatic veggies in the bottom of your roasting pan. Once you have a nice fond going add some stock and/or wine, put the lid on and cook loooww and sloooow until the meat is fall-apart tender. Remove meat from the bones then add it to the sandwich.

>>7169938
Whatever you say kid. My personal preference is that I should've cooked it a tad bit more, but it should still be runny. I did win the lottery with the egg I used on my sandwich
>>
>>7169885
I use whole wheat because it's what I have 99% of the time, but I can appreciate other kinds (never cheap presliced white bread though).

You have to use butter and low heat because it crisps up so perfectly nice. It's just beautiful and golden brown and the crunch, but it isn't dry, and it's great. That's why I'm so very, very disappointed in you putting a fried egg on TOP. On the side? Sure. That sounds good. Dip, drag, and put the sandwich in your mouth and enjoy, but putting it on top is going to get rid of that nice crust you made with butter and the pan on your bread.

Also, I'm completely a pleb, because I'll use american cheese product whatever. I grew up on it, and it's what I still love, and it's a total comfort thing (deluxe slices not individually packaged). But cheddar? No. I would defend american cheese product before I went for a bland melted cheddar in my grilled cheese. I hate melting cheddar (unless it's part of a medley of cheeses, and even then, it's usually the weakest one).

did you guys know that there are places who do delivery grilled cheese? First how fucking lazy do you have to have grilled cheese delivered to you, and secondly wouldn't it be too cold to be good by then? Like the whole point of grilled cheese is eating it while the insides are still molten

Sometimes when I don't feel like cleaning a greasy pan I like to toast bread, assemble with cheese and then microwave it. You really gotta flip it lots so the bread doesn't get all steamy though.

I think that stopped being a grilled cheese a few steps ago.
>>
>>7170208
why, too complex? I mean there's a fine line between a grilled cheese sandwich and a Croque-monsieur, but aren't we all grilled cheese in the hearth?
>>
>>7170193
Why not toast the whole sandwich in the pan with a lid? You would only need to flip once and it'll still keep enough heat to melt the cheese.
>>
>>7170221

lid traps steam making the sandwich soggy

Why on earth would you want to do that?

>>
>>7170236

You've never heard the term "plancha grill" before?
>>
>>7170247
The amount of steam generated is absolutely tiny. The main point of using a lid is to trap the dry heat.

>>7170252
The pan wouldn't get greasy so he wouldn't need to wash it.
>>
>>7170176
Looks so good. One of these days I need to buy bacon and do that
>>
>>7169885
wouldn't the cheese just melt through the grill?
>>
Can you cook it on a BBQ? Or will it melt through the grill?

What about making grilled cheese sandwiches isn't about cooking?

It doesn't have to be prissy fucking molecular gastronomy small plate bullshit to be considered cooking.

Do you grill it with the sliced tomato in there or add it afterwards? I never tried it but it sounds like the tomato would lose all firmness and just be a gross mush.

It's the opposite.

Because people make grilled cheese sandwiches?

Does not compute.
>>
>>7170784
Your post-avant-garde cooking thread is not a thread about cooking.
>>
>>7170808
Cutting sandwiches in half (diagonally of course) reducing air drag when taking bites and enhances flavor.
It's toasted whole wheat bread (as clearly stated) not a hash brown my nig nog
>>
>>7170836
But why would you spill the yolk?
Biting off the whole yolk together with bread is the single best thing about sunny side-up eggs with runny yolks.
>>
>>7170784
>muh americans
stay mad retard
>>
>>7170851
The entire yolk in one bite? I don't think I ever did that. The egg had a double yolk so I'd have to take one massive bite to get it all.
Or are just talking about spilling the yolk by biting into it?
>>
>>7170897
The entire yolk. Eggs I usually get tend to have yolks sized exactly perfect for that.
>>

>Bread

Honestly, sourdough is incredible

>Cheeses

Cheddar+boursin herb cream cheese

>Meat/spices

I usually don't add meat, but if I do, it will be some kind of salami. And I like to add pepper as well.

>What do you cook it in

Butter. It's a grilled cheese. It's not healthy. It's not meant to be. It's not something I eat daily. Just don't hold back, go the whole 9 yards. Butter tastes the best. Way better than anything else.

I will have a bowl of tomato, french onion, or minestrone soup with the sandwich.
>>

I'm sorry, nothing on that plate indicates "grilled cheese" to me. The only "grilled cheese" I can think of is halloumi... grilled.

What you have there is a pan-fried cheese sandwich.

Regardless, here's some OC.

Tomato and basil soup with croutons and parmesan cheese. I used thin layer of mayo for the bread. Two slices of Colby cheese.

???

The parm on the tomato soup sounds like a nice addition though

What I usually do is quarter my grilled cheese and season each quarter differently. This will give me an idea of what flavours go well together which is the most important quality in cooking.

>>7171918
learn to read!

>>7171915
no problem. made chili without beans with ground beef and some meat you use for gulash, onions, garlic, cumin, chili, beef-stock, chipotle and some other spices. buttered a toast, put slices of cheese (aged cheddar, mozzarella and a other one i forgot) a little bit chili on the toast and put all in a pan. used a pot with water to press all together in the pan

thats all, pretty nice and easy

Rye, sue me.

Depends, I like using cheddar most of the time but I'll go with jack cheese once in a while.
>meat, spices, or soup?
Tomato bisque all the way for soup. Sometimes the misses will make french onion soup. Occasionally I'll add thin sliced ham or bacon bits to the sandwich.

Butter. Never done it with the other two.

the only things you need for a good grill cheese is a decent light bread of your choice.

multi-grain
white
rye (my personally favourite.)


and velvetta cheese, best cheese for grilled cheese. add a fried egg if you really want.

quick easy tasty. serve with tomato soup.

10/10 meal

It does. Alton confirmed for Hipster try-hard.
