  • my grilled cheeses always end up soft rather than crisp. Tips?

    • +Alfiqri 1570 I switched it to mayonaise, but the mayonnaise burns before the cheese melts. What heat should the stove be set to; Large, Medium, or Small [temperature]?

    • itsKingAce do use butter already?

  • breakfast! :)

  • The scene in Chef where he makes the grilled cheese for his son is really touching. He doesn't say anything, but the amount of care and attention he puts into making it perfect says more than words ever could.

  • Oooh. Fried cheese sandwich

  • I like to add caramelized onions to my grilled cheese here in texas, it adds a great flavour and texture

  • Why didn't I ever think about buttering the pan and using that to butter the bread???? That would save me so much time!!

  • It's actually illegal to make a grilled cheese without using american cheese

  • I love Grilled cheese

  • A grilled cheese (American cheese and white bread) is good with strawberry jam. My server at a diner told me and I've loved it ever since

  • I'd add a bit of provolone.

  • I'm making one right now

  • you know what makes a grilled cheese sandwich better? A little bit of vegemite.

  • Banish-The I love you son but I’m never good at showing it Me:The Joe Jackson

  • "i love you son but im bad at it" that was literally the definition of my child hood

  • Yall just watch these to teell urself u can cook but then just end up being hungry

  • Sop having a boring grilled cheese stop having a boring life. Want to make to make it special. Same thing, less butter, white bread, a single sliced tomato, green onions, jalapeno, and there you go.

  • Short sweet and sloppy. Just how I like my grilled cheese sandwich

  • Wait, do Americans not have toasty makers?

  • Loved the accurate Hindi subtitles although people don't use that level of sophistication in daily conversation.

  • Hey could you try and do a TaterTot Casserole?? casserole/hotdish

  • "compt-ay." *Breath in and out, its just an American*

  • Thanks,this was really good and about the only successful thing I’ve cooked

  • What if you're not at drinking age, will the recipe fail if you don't get some tequila?

    • +Cyvan I'm old enough to drink, I'm just curious

    • Ask your parents? :D

  • Shut the fuck up and eat the food

  • We had grilled cheese Tuesdays in Afghanistan it made things a little better.

  • both sides of the bread need to be grilled, otherwise the center becomes a soft gooey mess when we still need an extra layer of crunch.

  • Who remembers tanacon?

  • "I mean.... shut the fuck up."

  • I've been binge watching (pun intended) your videos while recovering from getting my wisdom teeth out. Not a wise decision considering your videos make me extraordinarily hungry. Thanks for all the awesome content and I cannot wait to eat real food again. Might just start with a grilled cheese, I usually add meat to mine though

  • My diet says: Not this day.

  • Every one does it like that🙂

  • My favorite


  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST - Cheese Soufflé BRAVE - Empire Biscuits MONSTERS INC - Yellow Snow Cones FIFTH ELEMENT - Leeloo chikaaah & dallas siu mei lunch SNOW WHITE Gooseberry Pie SUPERBAD tiramisu SPANGLISH Egg sandwich

  • I tried this and you don't know how good this shit is

  • I made a different version with mozzarella, parm and store-bought cheese and a shitton more butter and i loved it even more. Thanks Andrew.

  • After watching Chef the movie I was like “I want a grilled cheese sandwiches” so I looked on US-tv, and was like I hope there is a reference to the movie. Then clicked the video and when he said “Carl Casper” I shouted in joy”

  • aahhhh... I love cheese...

  • Have you ever tried using mayo instead of butter? I like it.

  • Grilled cheese day?

  • Have you tried using mayo instead of butter?

  • Im having a orgasm

  • Babish Y U no at Tanacon.

  • Do the Cheezers grilled cheese deluxe from regular show pls!

  • The fact I have to search this up when it's literally in the name

  • that aint no sourdough

  • The fontina is an excellent replacement.

  • Thank you for celebrating one of my favorite holidays!

  • I remember getting grilled cheese and tomato soup sometime for school lunch in Pennsylvania. Was always delicious.

  • Yyaahh I must try it

  • You gotta have tomato soup with that

  • grilled cheese is my favorite sandwitch and it was made on my birthday

  • He looks like kratos from god of war no disrespect

  • am I the only one that doesn't like fancy/expensive cheeses on my grilled cheese? the flavors are just over powering your grilled bread. I just want something that tastes cheesy and the cheap singles in plastic wrap does it for me. but I do like the fancy cheese on a deli sandwich or when I have cheese, meat and crackers.

  • That cross section made me NUT

  • Grilled 3 Cheese from Jane the Virgin

  • You should make Heavy's sandwich from TF2

  • Cheese is the best dairy product on Earth.


  • i use maya for grilled cheese myself

  • Also a great way of making what you call a grilled cheese is using a toasty or panini press, far easier

  • b

  • For a bacon grilled cheese sandwich would it be possible to cook the bacon first in the pan then the grilled cheese in that same pan partly substituting the butter and olive oil with the grease?

  • Literally came on the moment I got done making a grilled cheese.

  • I do not detect Justin Y.

  • That color. That is hardly good olive oil.

  • which cheese is that

  • More with jon favreau I don't know how you got once, but twice would be nice.

  • If I may ask, why comte or fontina in place of the cheddar? What sets them apart, in your opinion.

  • Ma name chef

  • I made this the other day and it is without a doubt the ONLY grilled cheese recipe you should follow

  • nice

  • I have had 2 grilled cheeses today but some how you make me crave a 3rd

  • I love to put salt and pepper insode of my grilled cheese

  • You should toast the inside Of the bread as well

  • What is the first cheese he said? I can't understand it.

  • We need the eggcelent omelette challenge from Regular Show

  • Nothing beats old school

  • I fucking love grilled cheese.

  • Instead of butter I use dukes mayo. Sounds gross but it’s amazing.

    • Dukes is literally the best mayo I have ever tried. Lots of mayo's have a hint of sweetness to them, and as a person who hates miracle whip for that very reason, I just don't find many mayo's enjoyable. But Duke's is tangy, and sour almost like a pickly taste.

  • Wait, do you guys not put ham in grilled sandwiches? Tf?

    • Hammmyburger No? This is a grilled cheesem

  • why does grilled cheese make me feel sick? It tastes good the first few bites, but then I feel sick...

  • tequila?

  • food wishes' Grilled cheese is better o/

  • I really should stop watching these in the middle of the night, so hungry.

  • I watched this maybe months ago and it's still trending...

  • Where am i

  • ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh youve given me a foodgasm with that cheese pull

  • my name chef

  • A moment of silence please **music is still playing**

  • Have you heard the news about our Lord and Saviour, Cheezus Chrust?

  • an easier way of doing that is by wrapping the sandwich in aluminum foil and giving it just one exterior layer of butter, also, just Adobero or mozzarela are better than that mix

  • A great grilled cheese combination is to use sourdough but soak the outside in extra virgin olive oil before browning, cooking on medium low heat, then adding Gouda and bacon to the middle of it. The olive oil gives it a tangy flavor but also keeps the integrity of the bread intact.

  • use milk on the cheese :p

  • Gruyere is tough to find in my area but I finally managed to find some tonight, made this recipe, and holy shit I'm still picking my jaw up off the floor. Best grilled cheese sandwich I've ever had, period.


  • Wow I never knew how to make a grilled cheese sandwich Unbelievable.... will you be teaching us all how to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches next. Lmao.

    • ThatCloudGuy you must be doing something right with 2.6 mil subs. In 12 years. And I love grilled cheese. But you have to dip into tomato soup.

    • mark smith I still watched it.

  • You spelled cheese toasty wrong

  • Awesome, cheese pull.
