Grilled Cheese--which cheese?

Which cheese and/or combinations of cheeses make the best grilled cheese sandwiches? This strictly about the cheese, not other fillings.

  1. MMMmmmmmm, brie and sourdough grilled cheese sandwich...

    1. My all time favorite is sharp cheddar inside and grated parmesan pressed into the butter on the outside. It makes the bread extra crispy and gives it a wonderful savory flavor.

      1. Lately I've been using a Harvarti Dill Cheese for my grilled cheese, but my favorite is Sharp Cheddar.

        1. My grandmother used to bring back huge round slabs from trips to Wisconsin - it was either colby or sharp cheddar, boy were they good!

          1. My favorite is Havarti on Milton's Bread with salted butter. YUM!
