the secret to...

...the world's greatest grilled cheese sandwich. just spread salad dressing (ie. miracle whip) on the bread and then fry, instead of using butter. i received this tip a while back but never tried it because i thought it sounded gross. i was wrong...it is fabulous!! it toasts up all golden, brown and delicious. try it yourself and let me know what you think...

Sounds a lttle too unhealthy still. Probably a little better than butter but still unhealthy. All that fat spread on carbs filled with pure fat!!!

I agree... and I rarely use butter... I typically use an olive oil atomizer, so it's just enough fat to heat it up, but it gets more toasty than greasy.

I use either sharp cheddar (good) or a nice colby jack (better). Or Havarti and sliced roast beef.... YUMMY!

cheese has protein in it.. and if you use a soy or whole grain bread, the fiber or protein balances the carbs... the only thing anybody really needs to steer away from are processed sugars... the rest are just gimmicks for people who are too lazy to exercise.

I can think of much better protien sources that cheese. Tuna, salmon, chicken breast, roast beef, or egg whites. Sorry for the thread jacking. Now back to the feature presentation!!

It sounds delicious, but just not on my menu.

don't forget about nuts, especially almonds (but no salt).

velveeta is good, but watch how much you use. it almost melts "too good". you'll end up with a gooey mess if you aren't careful.

I wouldnt say health nut. I just subscribe to the theory, garbage in = garbage out. I dotn eat corn or potatoes in any form and I limit the amount of carbs I eat. I also try to eat low fat foods. I let myself go for a little while and put on like 20-30lbs. I have taken almost all of it back off in the last 2 months by eating healthy. And running a little bit. Not alot but I did run a 5K a couple of weeks ago.

That sounds good. I usually make "ghetto grill cheese" Where you just toast two pieces of bread and then microwave them with the chees to melt it. Yours sounds better, though.

Try puuting it in the oven instead frying it. Thats how my mom used to make them for me and my little bro. It gets the cheese all crispy on the edges Guess that kinda defeats the purpose of the grilled cheese tho...
