    Grilled Cheese: minor obsession. Simple. Butter both sides of the bread. (Thank you, husband for this technique.) Shredded cheddar cheese on both sides of the bread. (It melts like a dream. The sharper the cheddar, the better the cheddar.) Ham, lightly crisped in the pan. (Thank you, husband.) And at the very last minute, crisp green apples sliced thin. (That’s right, right into the middle of the sandwich.) Hallelujah!

  2. My favorite “grilled cheese” — ham+brie+green apple.
    Or cheddar+Harry&David tomato relish.
    Or pear+brie.
    Great, now I’m hungry! 🙂

  3. My favorite grilled cheese ever was white cheddar, goat cheese and tart granny smith apples on sour dough bread. Soooo delicious.

    (I tweeted a link to the giveaway! My twitter handle is @chickenramen)

  4. My fav: fresh italian bread, thinly sliced, buttered on both sides, swiss & monterey jack cheese, slices of tomato, slices of avocado

  5. My favorite is swiss on rye bread. Yum!

  8. Jessica

    My favorite grilled cheese is pepper jack on whole wheat with a cup of hearty tomato soup:)

  9. Katie

    I haven’t had too many types of grilled cheeses, but the best one I remember was at college. The cook made them perfectly and it was so crispy around the edges, which I loved!!

  10. I looooovveee me some grilled cheese. My favorite is pepperjack with thin-sliced ham and avocado. YUM! 🙂 I can’t wait to see the recipes in this book!

  11. Emily Sack

    The best is just multiple types of cheese. Goat cheese, cream cheese, and white cheddar on rustic french bread. yum!

  12. Chrysta

    I’m already a fan on facebook – I saw your article in the Marquette newsletter, and I’ve been a fan ever since!

    My favorite way to make grilled cheese is over lunch break with my husband, Denny. We’re lucky enough to get to have lunch together as work is close to home, and grilled cheese is always a favorite. Potato bread and American cheese, grill on #6 on my range until it’s perfectly golden on each side. Husband has his with chicken noodle soup on the side, every time. Simple and delicious.

  13. Gina

    I love grilled cheese! I love all kinds of cheese…I like to keep it simple though – wheat bread with American cheese slices, just like how mom made it! With a side of tomato soup with elbow macaroni!

  14. nicole

    I love grilled cheese! I always use as many different kinds of cheese I have available… then throw on a grilled tomato!

  15. Linda Smith

    Favorite comfort food around are house is wheat bread filled with mesquite turkey breast thinly sliced, topped with swiss cheese and avocado slices, buttered on the outside and grilled on the George Foreman. Serve with a bowl of tomato soup with club crackers and canned peach slices for dessert. Sounds corny, but takes us back to our childhoods and it soothes the soul.

  16. Love this giveaway! My all time fav grilled cheese with gorgonzola and pear (and I would add some bacon for kicks!) Craving one NOW!

    Tweeted you @KristinaBlake and “liked” you on FB!

  17. Haley

    Plain and simple: 2 slices white bread, butter, and American cheese. Perfect 🙂

  18. kelly

    The perfect grilled cheese is an Italian Grilled Cheese n Tomato!!! Brush 4 slices of the bread with garlic oil on 1 side. Place garlic oil side down on the grill. Top with sliced cheese, tomato and basil. Place another slice of bread on top of each sandwich. Brush sandwiches with garlic oil. Press sandwiches with heavy skillet or a brick covered with tin foil. Toast sandwiches on both sides to melt! Delicious!!

  19. Sheila

    Rye bread with caraway seeds, then hot pepper cheese, or caraway swiss, alfalfa sprouts and homemade guacamole…butter the bread, then grill in a pan or panini maker…..yummy.

  20. Debbie

    Sharp cheese with avacodo and tomato!

  21. Debbie

    Simple cheese on thick italian bread cooked on the grill pan. Crispy on the outside–Soft on the inside!

  24. Aimee Porter

    I am a fan of Haute Apple Pie on Facebook:)

  25. Jennie

    I used to make grilled cheese with pickles for the kids I babysat. They were delicious and the kids always thought I was the cool babysitter for making grilled cheese a little less ordinary!

  26. deb c.

    cheddar w/thick French bread!

  27. Jana

    The best grilled cheese sandwich I ever ate was simply delicious: buttered wheat bread and Colby Jack cheese slices! Mmmmm mmmm cheesy goodness :)!

    I already “Like” you on Facebook, too.

  28. Traci

    My fave grilled cheese is white bread+cheddar cheese+avocado+tomato+bacon! And of course the bread is buttered on both sides. Gotta have home made tomato bisque to dip it in too!

  29. Kelly Ann T.

    I make a grilled cheese using a soft pretzel as the bread, and I use chedder and American cheese.

    Love grilled cheese with a nice slice of fresh tomato inside! I’d love to win!

  32. Anne

    This sounds like a cookbook that would be right up my husbands alley! I too am already an HAP FB fan.
    My favorite grilled cheese is made with Texas toast, tomato, onion, avocado, and lots of ooey, gooey cheese!

    I just made grilled cheese delights yesterday, and yummmm. I use mayonnaise instead of margarine, and you can’t beat the way the crispiness just gets to you, and before you realize it; it is all gone, and you are the only one in the room, thanks, and blessings, redraven

  34. The Harp has a great grilled cheese with several diff cheeses, mushrooms, bacon & tomato! When I eat it outside on their patio in the summer it makes it even better.

  35. Dana

    Sharp cheddar on sourdough bread. Add tomatoes and avocado if handy. But the classic is still the best to me. And I pretty much can’t eat it unless I have tomato soup to dunk it in. Like a previous post said….I have made it with mayo on the outside (back in college) and it was to die for. I have since moved back to butter to save a bit on calories…but am sometimes still tempted.

    Have been meaning to try this one….a little grilled cheese invention from my friend Kate.


  36. Oh yeah, I have been “Liking” you on Facebook for quite some time 🙂

  37. Katie

    Good old American cheese on wheat bread, with a side of tomato soup! Yummy.

    “Like” you on Facebook too!

  38. Slices of French bread, a mixture of shredded cheeses I have on hand (especially Colby!). I melt a little (unsalted) butter in the pan, but also thinly cover the outside of the bread with a layer of butter. Place one slice of bread, butter-side down, in the pan & place a mound of shredded cheese on the bread. Cover to start melting. Once melted, place 2nd slice of bread, butter-side out, on top of the cheese & flip. Cover again to complete the melting. Slice diagonally, serve with tomato soup for dipping. Classic comfort food.

  39. my favorite concoction: roasted squash, red onion, balsamic gastrique and goat cheese. HEAVENLY!

  40. Yummm, grilled cheese. It doesn’t have to be any too fancy for me. Buttered bread and a few different types of cheese grilled until golden brown. Easy and delicious!

  41. Jen

    Fresh (then toasted) seeded rye bread, fontina cheese, heirloom tomato. It’s simple but it works!

  42. grilled cheese with spicy hot pickles on whole wheat sourdough. hands down, best GC ever!

  43. Kristin

    The BEST grilled cheese : Ham, Gruyere and Apple on a panini.

  44. Rebecca

    The best grilled cheese sandwich I ever had was at the Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago when I was in 5th grade. That was over 20 years ago, and I still remember it. I don’t even know what made it so good, but it was certainly memorable!

  45. My favorite way to make a grilled cheese is with hearty whole wheat bread, generous amounts of real butter, and two slices of american cheese. Sooooo goooooood.

  46. We just eat the classic grilled cheese made with Kraft singles.

  47. briana

    The grilled cheese that I love to make is using two slices of crusty buttery bread, one slice of mild cheddar, one slice of gruyere, tomato slices, and bacon!

  48. EmNey

    My favorite grilled cheese includes sharp cheddar with avocado slices and crispy bacon!

  49. jade

    goat cheese, mozzarella, colby, onion, avocado. fried in a puddle of butter.

  50. sourdough, cheddar, tomato, avocado. word.

  51. I learned this from Martha Stewart: aged cheddar, a little jam, and really thin green apple slices on sourdough. She’s the grilled cheese wizard, I swear.

  52. Dot Smith

    Provolone & American cheese with sliced tomato & crisp bacon on buttered bakery bread with a cup of tomato soup. Great lunch.

  53. pinkdawn
