That is a good link Bonnie, Strawberry picking just started around my neck of the woods. (Eastern NC). The French bread shown brought back memories of Miami and Cuban bread. There are little neighborhood bakeries all around. The bread is great and their pastries are wonderful.

This may be more than what you are looking for... but, a basic Reuben sandwich is my go to "grilled cheese" item.
  • Lightly butter one side of two bread slices.
  • Spread non-buttered sides with Thousand Island dressing.
  • Layer one slice Swiss cheese, corned beef, sauerkraut and second slice of Swiss cheese on top of the Thousand Island dressing side of one of the bread slices.
  • Top with remaining bread slice, buttered side out.
  • Grill sandwiche until both sides are golden brown, about 15 minutes per side. Serve hot
Yum!

Thanks Dan. That sounds great. You must be using a low, or medium-low cooking temp, to be able to cook for 15 minutes on each side. I know that my grilled cheese were "very" golden brown (or more), and in no time, and I cooked them a whole lot less than 15 minutes/side......

A Reuben will be in my near future, for sure.....

Hey Nick, yes I keep a low temp so that there is time to heat the sandwich throughout esp. if there is a lot of cheese, corned beef and sauerkraut. In hindsight perhaps the 15 mins is a bit long... actually, I just check on occasion until it gets golden brown, then flip. I guessed at the 15 mins .

I do it the way KevinE does it. Must remember to try the mayo instead of butter idea next time...

Well, these things are coming out good, but it seems, I continue to somewhat, over-cook the bread (very dark). I assume they need to be cooked slow, and on low ?

I'm confused. Back in post #9 (that you made) you state that you know how to make grilled cheese sandwiches and that you've "made a million" and now you're asking questions on how to make them. Making them in cast iron is no different than making them in any non stick skillet: medium low heat and cheese that will melt like gruyere, manchego, cheddar, American, Swiss, Monterey Jack, colby, etc.

Lately i've been making a lot of no-knead dutch oven bread, and ive been experimenting with it a little. The last loaf i added rosemary and thyme to the bread before baking, this bread makes excellent grilled cheese sandwiches.

Well Kevin, maybe I should clarify, as I surely didn't mean to confuse anyone. Yes, I've made a million grill cheese sandwiches (but don't hold me to that precise number), however, they were not made in a cast iron skillet, nor were they made in any other kind of skillet (non-stick or otherwise). And yes, there are other ways to make a "so called", grilled cheese sandwich, other than in a skillet. I'm just trying to figure out the heat thing, because I seem to keep burning the bread. Sorry for asking.

Yes, Nick, I think it's the heat thing. Mine are done by guess and by golly, and getting the "color" right is the tricky part in my oh so humble opinion. As far as basic ingreds., if it tastes good, it's fine! (PS my mom called them "toasted cheese".)
