    Ohhhh my. I'll have to try that. I have a good chipotle sauce made with just cream and a can of chipotle peppers (use as much as you can stand including the adobo sauce that comes with it) and put into the blender till it's smooth..........then heat it up. It is wonderful over blackened chicken.

    My wife and I love white American cheese on grilled cheese. Simple and not connoisseur style but gooey and good!


    Mayo? Forget about it. Butter and more butter on the outside of the bread.


    I like the low sodium ham from Publix deli on grilled cheese but I sure da hell wouldn't slap ya if you made me one with bacon instead!


    There is the basic grilled cheese like the one I described and there is also a hundred variations but still maintaining that what you are having is a "grilled cheese". At what point does it leave the parameters of being a grilled cheese and become something totally different?

    You gotta catch the BOGO on bacon. Each and every time it is on sale. You will then have a freezer full of it like my fridge has.

    I bet they loved it!


    I won't even drink a Coke anymore, let alone a bacon flavored sody pop!

    Yes, that's the one.

    I've been making grilled cheese forever, and I usually make it with 2 cheeses (usually swiss & gruyere, sometimes yellow cheddar), bacon, tomato, and some form of soft white bread, with REAL butter, and garlic powder on both sides.

    Nope. It was so bad it ruined bacon a little for them too.

It is a ďpasteurized prepared cheese product.Ē Now, I do use Velveeta for some things, I am not saying to avoid it, but it is not cheese. And, I can not imagine any "well known" chef using Velveeta to make a grilled cheese sandwich, period.

    As for mayo, it is basically vegetable oil and has almost no flavor. Plus, butter has gotten a bad rap, but that was wrong, butter is better for you than margarine or vegetable oil.

    So, you have failed on all fronts

    To summarize, no, Velveeta is not better for a grilled cheese than real cheese, and no mayo is not better than butter for a grilled cheese sandwich.

    My conclusion: You don't cook if you do maybe stick to frozen foods and stuff that comes out of boxes.


    P.S. You have tasted real cheese before right? Not just those plastic-wrapped slices of cheese food product, yes? I mean like a nice sharp cheddar or a smooth and creamy mozzarella maybe a smoked gouda or even a smoked cheddar? So many incredible cheeses and you say use Velveeta, lol.
    You like talking out of your ass donít you? If you bothered to pay attention, I said the velvetta was from a chef, not my own. If you donít like it, then take it up with Carl Ruiz. While itís not real cheese, it is a very flavorful cheese product and melts very smooth. It actually melts better than most real cheeses.

    As for mayo instead of butter, again, many chefs use mayo because it doesnít make the bread greasy. It makes for a nice crisply grilled bread, without the greasy taste that too much butter can cause. Again, it was something I learned from chefs. Not only do I cook, I study food. I enjoy learning the actual science to cooking, not just throwing shit in a pan.

    Btw, the mayo tip is widely known now

    https://tiphero.com/mayo-grilled-cheese

    https://www.thekitchn.com/should-you...lled-ch-144259

    Ruiz says to mix the mayo with margarine.
