The wonderful thing about All Recipes is that it is used by a very diverse group of people. So while this recipe seems very basic and to some even ridiculous, please remember that to a kid just learning to cook this is very valuable. Also, just because we grew up eating these, does not mean that someone in another country did. So remember that there are people here trying to learn new things to make before you go bashing this recipe for being too simple!
HELPFUL HINTS THAT MAKE THIS A FAVORITE: Just as is, it truly is an All American favorite, but everyone knows there are ways to make this better! First, they come out better (like tx toast) when your skillet is on low. They have time to cook evenly w/o burning. Also try spreading a little lite mayo on instead of butter (also less calories) if you want a crispy sammie that is so delicious! Third, there's always wheat bread&fat-free cheese, but if you're not dieting & want the best ...it's my opinion that potato bread w/melted cheese is!! If you've got pepperjack cheese, that's always a nice twist too ...as well as a sprinkle of garlic powder. Then add a slice of tomato in the middle. Mmmm Mmm Mmmm... Either way, this is definitely a comfort food I always turn to with a side of tomato soup! This mommy makes this quite regularly! With the temperature cooling, what better time to have one. Plus, none of the kids fuss!
Simple is sometimes best! But I do have to use Velveeta cheese with this recipe.
