God I love this site! It's recipes like this that give the tricks of the trade that the average cook would never have figured out. I'm not the best grilled cheese maker (I'm the person who always cooked on a super high setting causing the bread to burn but the cheese not to melt) but have been trying to be patient since my kids really like them for lunch. I came across this and had to give it a try. WOW! PERFECTLY crisp on the outside and ooey gooey on the inside. The bread was so perfectly crisp that I was even able to slice the sandwich with a triangle shaped sandwich cutter (the kids like it that way) without all the filling coming out. As I pushed through the bread I just heard the perfect crunch as it pushed right through. It was great! Will ALWAYS make mine like this from now on. I used low-fat Hellman's and it worked perfectly! Thank you for this one! Excellent tip for us novice grilled cheese makers!

I've been using Mayo instead of butter for a while now on my grilled sandwiches. It started in an effort to reduce the amount of fat on my sandwich but I continue because I love the way it grills. btw...I do use low fat hellmans and it works great!

Used "Homemade Mayonnaise" and this was delish. DD had thirds! Thank you for the small, but tasty change in our lunch!

I was a lttle uncertain how this would be but I decided to try it. First time I did it just like the recipe said....so surprised how good it was on my pepperidge farm wheat bread !!! Then I thought, wonder what it would be like with ham and tomato and mayo inside..even better

This is how my Gramma makes it. I like the mayo much better than using butter.

This is how I have made grilled cheese all my life, and I would not make it any other way. Also as unhealthy as it is...most diners cook it on the same grill that they cook salted foods on, so I throw just a tiny tiny tiny pinch of salt on the bottom of the pan before cooking it, and it tastes exactly like it does at any diner
