My perfect grilled cheese would be rye bread and cheddar cheese, plain and simple. Wanna get a little crazy, throw a nice slice of tomato on that grilled cheese. I remember Mom making open-face grilled cheese. That was only one slice of bread with cheese on top and toasted til the cheese had a slight brown top. As always have a nice pickle and chips to go with that and you have a perfect lunch. Tomato soup also goes very well with grilled cheese or as our friends across the pond call it "cheese on toast".

According to Lovefood "Two slices of bread and some cheese might sound simple but, to many, finding the perfect grilled cheese is an endless (very tasty) mission. There are the purists, who like theirs with handfuls of Cheddar and finished under the grill. Some prefer a sandwich with several types of cheese, while others might want all the loaded extras."

So how about us here in Jersey? Where did Lovefood select as the best spot to get a delicious grilled cheese sandwich? According to their article "American Melts is a “build your own” grilled cheese bar and the possibilities are both seemingly endless and definitely delicious. Filling options include classic American cheese, bacon, pesto, pickles, sliced apple and portobello mushroom, and diners can choose from different sandwich bases from country white bread to wholegrain. Customers describe the results as the best sandwiches they’ve ever had, and just a great grilled cheese. There are gluten-free and vegan options too." Jay Gajjar Jay Gajjar
