    I usually don’t squash it when I flip it or pull it out unless I’m being impatient and want it to hurry up the burning process.  I love burnt grilled cheese sandwiches Laughing

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat: I am so anal about my grilled cheese. This is going to sound stupid. I lightly fry each side in a pan to get it golden brown and then put into a preheated oven to melt the cheese the rest of the way. It’s the only way I can keep them fluffy, not burned and ensure the cheese is melted.

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Oh if you are ever adventurous and don’t mind the cholesterol, make your grilled cheese like this: butter the outside of the bread with garlic butter and press it into shaved parmesan cheese, then fry. You get crispy cheese on the outside and melty gooeyness on the inside.

    @piglet_625: I can only eat about a half of one before my stomach starts to revolt, but my tastebuds love it.
