What's better than a grilled cheese just the way you like it? Buttered bread, maybe a little bacon, throw an avocado on there... Or plain? Fine, we'll take plain, too. The most important ingredient is the cheese. The grilled cheese sandwich is one of the best comfort foods, and it seems like every family does it a little bit differently. Around here, we're partial to plain ol' American Kraft Singles, but we've also dabbled in Swiss, Provolone, and even Havarti.

What is your favorite cheese? A sharp cheddar? A creamy brie? On white bread, sourdough, rye, or wheat, some with mustard, a pickle on the side, tomato soup to dip it in... We're getting hungry. Vote for your favorites, the best cheeses for grilled cheese sandwiches, and vote down the ones that just don't melt right. Or vote up all of them, because they're probably all pretty tasty.
