That's the reason I use grated. Wedges of cheese are too thick, so it's not uniformly melted, and the lowest part of the cheese is basically just warm cheddar that's gone soft, but not melted. Whereas with grated, it tends to melt the same way all the way through.

Will yeah you might get that problem, if you do it wrong :roll:

You're either using too high a heat or placing your cheese on toast too close to the grill.

Perfection cannot be rushed :datass:

How do you prepare your toast before the cheese goes on top? In the toaster? Under the grill? Buttered? Anyone here the kind of heathen who just uses untoasted bread and relies on it toasting while the cheese cooks?

Put the bread under the grill but only grill one side. Take half toasted bread out from the grill and put cheese on non-toasted part. Stick it back under the grill and wait for the cheese to melt.

Rather than cheese on toast, I prefer to go for something that is closer to Welsh Rarebit where I mix cheese, a bit of milk, a bit of butter, some Worcestershire sauce and some English or Dijon mustard. The Worcestershire sauce and the mustard give it a kick and make it much tastier then just sticking cheese, and only cheese, on a bit of toast.

The big question is do you use grated cheese or slices, tip grated is correct, the wife uses slices and it’s just wrong.

Cheese slices? Like, that orange American cheese for burgers? :dread:


Naa like sliced cheese. Either getting a block, cutting slices then laying on the bread, or presliced cheese.

Thank strawberry float for that :lol:

Don't think I've bought pre sliced cheddar in years, I forgot they still did it.

Has to be toasted first as the best cheese on toast is a bit burnt around the edges.

Correct, but how do you toast it?

I have a mini oven thingy so I just use bread and it toasts it while the cheese is melting as it's heated from all sides :shifty: .

But then the bread that's covered with cheese doesn't toast. :|

That's definite grounds for ending a relationship.

Anyway, I'm deeply ashamed to admit that the American "Grilled Cheese" sandwich (which is actually fried :roll:) is the superior method of preparing cheese on toast.

Please don't ban me.

Yup even melt is key, also makes it easier to push it to the point that some of fat releases and browns a little before the edges of the toast burns.

American cheese doesn't count as real cheese.
I go with mature cheddar mostly sometimes with some brie as well.

Christmas is always good for getting some nice specialty cheeses.

This is correct, there's a cheese shop nearby that sells Hendersons Relish Cheddar, its incredible.

I agree I've never heard it called that.


It might be a central Scotland thing, but yeah. Loads of folk I work with call it roasted cheese. Because they’re idiots.

I've watched people make those and while they do seem tasty (if you accept that all American cheese is 100% inedible) they make the whole thing fussy and overcomplicated.

I feel like I need to try microwaving some cheddar, because I cannot imagine it ever achieving a spreadable consistency.

Lightly toasted in the toaster first, (hand-)sliced mature cheddar, tomato or worcestershire sauce depending on mood, and a slice of ham under the cheese if I'm feeling fancy.

You really have to watch it in tbe microwave so it doesn't burn.

Don't get me wrong, it's not great and inferior to more traditional methods but it did work

You know what, all of these suggestions are great and that's because cheese on toast is a unifying force for good.

Apart from Tomous's ex, that gooseberry fool is strawberry floated up.

A bit of HP brown sauce on the bread and the cheese on top then melted or some onion / chives on the bread with cheese melted on top.
