The Perfect Grilled Cheese

wahwahweewee | Sep 6, 2009 12:01 PM

I know this is fairly basic and may be a dumb question but though I am fairly deft at cooking, I cannot get a grilled cheese to be perfect, in the way I remember my mom's ones being. I am looking for the methods of cooking a Perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Though I know that there are many new flavor combos that people are trying, I am just wondering about the most basic of grilled cheeses: cheese slapped between two slices...

Just wondering if you 'Hounds could use your expertise to give me any tried and true methods for making it perfect.

-What type of bread and cheese?
-What type of pan do you cook it in?
-Butter, oil, both, something else?
-How high should the heat be set?
-How many times do you flip? How long should you wait before you flip?

Any ideas or methods? Thanks y'all!
