Toasted cheese sandwiches.

See now, I've never actually made toasted cheese sandwiches before. I see that shrug of disbelief, but it's something that I've just never done. I've baked them in the oven, I've made them in the microwave, but never in the frying pan. Well, with the recently-cleaned kitchen, I decided to give it a go.

Well, hell, it's not exactly brain surgery.

Grilled cheese and tomato soup. Major comfort food combo from my youth. Second only to hotdish and just above macaroni and cheese. For me, it can make almost any grumpy day a *little* bit better. Mmmmm....

I have a cast iron skillet that is the BOMB for making cheese sammiches.

Been there - a can of spray cheese exploded one evening, coating our kitchen with splats of processed cheese food. It actually blew a hole through the side of the can - nowhere near a seam.

We should have sued, but we were laughing too hard.

I taught the kids to make them with the George Foreman grill. You don't have to flip them and if your grill has a timer, two minutes is consistently good.

Friend of mine has one of those at work. Seems like the perfect thing for sandwiches.

I am a grilled cheese mistress! I make the finest grilled cheese sandwiches in all of the land! If my family didn't object, we would eat grilled cheese every day!

Really, they're damn tasty. And, jenx is right. Nothing beats cast iron for the gold standard of grilled cheese.

You didn't make a toasted cheese sandwich, you made a grilled cheese sandwich.

But it wasn't grilled,it was toasted in a pan.

I maintain that it wasn't toasted, I think of things being toasted in a toaster. You buttered the outside of the bread and then grilled it in a pan on the stovetop. The butter/oil/margarine aids in what happens to the outer surface, clearly making it an item that has been grilled, as opposed to just toasted.

If you did it in the pan without the butter so the outside of the bread was browned in a dry, toastlike way, I might accept your terminology. If you'd toasted the bread in a toaster and then slapped some cheese in between, I would definitely accept your definition in this case.

I am also being an opinionated prick.
