Or whatever you call them. So what kind of cheese do you british people use when making them?

    out of interest, do people define this "grilled cheese" translation as cheese ON toast, or a toasted cheese sandwich, or cheese toastie as I like to call it?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Maybe it is a toastie. But then why call it 'grilled' cheese? Because you don't grill the cheese you.. squish it in a sandwich maker :sour:

    I read it as cheese toastie (toasted sandwich).

    It's got to be cheddar with a bit of cream cheese. Brie and spinach or stilton and spinach (or, even better, blue brie and spinach!) are also all good.

    No they don't use sandwich makers - I've seen it where they literally make the sandwich and then shove it under the grill.

    It is now where near as simple as that, ‘grilled cheese sandwiches’ in my experience in the US aren’t grilled at all, or even toasted, they are fried – and very good it is too.

    Exactly, if they can add extra fat to something then they will - tastes excellent though.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah lipsy has got it on the mark, the pepper is a great addition.

    Also, I love to have either worcester sauce or good old brown HP on mine!!! mmmmmm.

    also the comments re the half fat cheese!! I agree, it just doesn't fucking melt properly - ugh!

    Isnt cheese virtually pure animal fat anyway? What is the other crap they put in to reduce the fat?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Fuck knows ! Something ming probably..

    I would just suggest to people to eat normal cheese but lower your amount of it.. that's what I ended up doing..

    Mild Chedder with a splash of Lea and Perrins.

    Hmm, maybe some vegetarian version. My mum always likes to get half-fat cheese so on the shopping list I always write 'REAL cheese'.

    red leicester and onion.

    Extra mature cheddar, spring onions and tabasco sauce :yum:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Emmentaler, Gouda, Bergbaron.

    one of those, then tomato sauce, chili sauce with garlic, scallions, pickles, oregano, pepper.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Low fat cheese has either water or plastic added I think :yuck:

    I knew somebody would be able to make the humble cheese toastie sound like an exquisite delicacy! You've got my taste buds going there. :yum: :yum:
