This thread made me crave a grilled cheese, so I had to make one today. Pics to hopefully illustrate my cooking method:

Only slight condensation on the lid but no dripping.

That's the ticket. Even with easy to melt cheeses, keep the heat low so the cheese starts to melt before/at the same time as the bread colors up.

The true beauty of a simple dish like grilled cheese is it's versatility. Try grating parmesan cheese on the surface immediately after turning and when the second side is browned flip it to sear the parmesan on that side, remove, plate and grate more parmesan on the top and garnish with some chopped fresh herbs. Sour dough is my favorite bread for grilled cheese.

I admit I love a good grilled cheese. I have a whole cookbook on it published by a little restaurant but that specializes in them. Yum! It has some greats from classics to ones that are a whole meal. Now I have to go make one.....
