Thanx for the tip about covering the sandwich to ensure that the cheese is melted. I'll do that 2nite - and I agree with your dad - no "burnt offerings" in my house!!

Thanks Julesong for the great tip. I don't have a cast iron skillet, so used a non stick pan. I had some yummy garlic cheddar cheese from Jan S (thanks Jan) & wanted to try your Dad's method. Use of the lid ensures that the centre is hot & gooey without burning the outside - yum! Thanks for sharing.

I make my grilled cheese sandwiches the same way your dad does. I have also used Mayonnaise on the bread instead of butter. It comes out less greasy and gives the sandwich a nice flavor.

These sandwiches are great!!! I love grileed cheese and I'm always looking for new ways to do them and new things to add to it! Also wanted to let you know that everytime my mom burnt something-no matter what it was-she would tell Dad and all of us kids that "I like it like that" so I had to laugh when I read your description. I think she was just too embarassed to tell us that she forgot to check the food. Scraping the burnt parts off of food wasn't fun but I sure have a lot of good memories from it. Thanks for sharing Julesong

I made this recipie for my kids and they asked for another cheese sandwhich! So, if they were so good I had to try them, and I did! They were delicious!

I made a grilled cheese for breakfast this morning, and it wasn't what I expected. Followed the instructions, and mine was burned in some places, and soggy in others. Will try again soon to see if it just was a fluke.

Yum! This is a great sandwhich. I used french bread. I ate it dipped in homeade barbecue sauce! I'll make all my grilled cheese sandwhiches using this method now.
