S/O Fancy grilled cheese sandwiches!

We started talking about fancy variants of grilled cheese sandwiches in another thread but I think such an important topic needs its own home!

My favorite is real sourdough bread from the bakery, pepper-jack cheese, bacon, and stone-ground mustard. Soooo good you guys!

I also like them with the same sourdough bread, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and then tomatoes slices slipped inside after the cheese is all goey. Heaven!

Mmmmm I made some low-er carb apricot habanero jam this summer from habs we
grew in our garden- and I couldn't stop putting it on EVERYTHING! Anyway, one of
the best was a grilled cheese, jam spread on one slice of bread, then sharp cheddar
on some sort of LC bread, I can't remember now. Maybe just whole grain w/ flax?

For me, all kinds of cheeses and breads are wonderful, but all of the sandwiches have to be heavily buttered on the outsides of the bread slices and fried/browned until richly golden brown in a skillet!!! And I have to have ketchup with all of them.

I'm not as keen on having other stuff put into the sandwich besides the cheese itself, but I do occasionally add ham that I slice off of a good meaty shank. So the basic grilled ham and cheese.

Apricot habanero jam -- wow, that sounds soooo good. I love spicy peach chutney and spicy mango jam or chutney so this would be right up my alley. Paired with sharp cheddar sounds perfect.

Cibatta with meunster sounds amazing too! I wouldn't have thought of that.

I do the same thing and you had me until I got to the ketchup part! I don't like any condiments with my grilled cheese, just make sure that it's real toasty/greasy on the outside and really melty on the inside!

LOL I think the ketchup part might be an old fashioned hold-over from my childhood and my daddy.

But I am anxious to try it with some preserves of some sort.

Omgosh! Yes, this is up day reading for sure! lol But I am gonna keep that bacon in mind for tomorrow, when I'll be eating.

And Pat, I like ketchup on the good old fashioned white bread and american cheese version. When I was 15 I worked at a Friendlys and that was a staple. And the butter and how it's cooked -- ummmmm, that crispy brown! -- are important to me, too.

If you've never made one, very thinly sliced apple tossed with some cinnamon and sharp cheddar make an excellent grilled cheese
So does pickled onions and gouda

Bread buttered and toasted on both sides! Crispy crunch is the perfect counterpoint to oozy, warm cheese. Mustard, oh choosing the perfect mustard is half the fun!

Apricot - Habanero jam .... I think I'm channeling my next UD.

Ketchup ... not so much.

My mom used to make an apple pizza on rich pastry dough, with very thinly

cinnamon. The whole thing was covered with sharp or extra-sharp Cheddar.
I need to get that recipe from her...

you all make way more interesting grilled cheese sandwhiches than I do.

Firstly - they're nearly always open (so not truly a sandwich) and DH thinks I have committed sacrilege if I add anything to it - other than salt and pepper.

You have all got me thinking...

Just a normal meal-discussion thread on a weight-reduction forum. Any not JUDDD BUDDD reading this will have the same predictable reaction.

Im loving this thread!!! Im having a grilled cheese today for lunch and my is watering now with all of these suggestions. I was just gonna do sara lee 45 calorie wheat bread with bordens southwest pepperjack cheese and of course fried on the skillet with butter!!! But now you gusy have me thinking but hey i can make one of these great grilled cheeses on any UD!!! We got it like that.
Im intrigued with that frying the bread with mayo instead of butter. I may have to try that. I do love miracle whip!!!
