  • So, he just used the indirect heat from the grill to melt the cheese...Why couldn't he just put it on the bread to start? Since that's exactly what would've happened to it anyways once the bread was on the grill, minus the extra mess and time wasted on engineering spatula pans. I thought he was going to do something crazy like actually grill the cheese and somehow get grill marks on it, but what he did is just a completely unnecessary step. Which also made more work/mess because he then had to wrap the sandwiches in more foil and stick them back on the grill so the cheese could melt into the bread when all of those extra steps could have been avoided and achieved the same result by simply sticking the cheese on the bread to begin with. Not to mention he most likely ruined the toasted crust (the best part of grilled cheese) by wrapping it in foil and sticking it back on there since the bread is going to be trapped with the steam/humidity from the cheese which it's going to absorb. Which, again, would've been avoided if had melted the cheese with the bread. He's a sciencey chef, he should know this, damn it.

  • So the argument being “what is grilled?” a Grilled ‘Cheese Sandwich’ -or- a ‘Grilled Cheese’ Sandwich” 🥪 (Though I wish he used butter instead of olive oil, the smoke from the butter being heated too high from the charcoal might be unpleasant while cooking, but would be captured back in the bread for a smokey flavor.)

  • Ill just make a griddled sandwich with melting American cheese and white bread.

  • I can't wait to try this!

  • You’re doing Julia‘s work, Alton. We appreciate it.

  • Yeah but thats just effort isnt it

  • *_THUSLY_*

  • He really is the king of grilled cheese. And the king of literacy lol

  • I think I love your grilled cheese sandwich, Alton Brown. 😍😊

  • Not that it's a bad idea, but it's not dishonest. You griddled a cheese sandwhich

  • At the start of the video, I was skeptical. ‘Grilled sandwich containing grilled cheese? Come on. There’s no need to change a classic! Pffffft Alton Brown! Pffft.’ By the end of the video, rivers were running through my mouth.

  • I just made a griddled sandwich with pre-shredded bag cheese. My shame is palpable.

  • Never seen seasoned cheese before

  • what

  • We watched this in high school for the class "Foods" for brownie. in one of the buildings

  • Are you kidding me! Live your shows but grill cheese is a quick meal... That's too much work! Wheat bread slapped with a bit a butta and three cheese blend on top. Melt grill until crunchy easy peasy!!

  • I worship Alton but this doesn’t look very good

  • Great video ... is there any real difference in the foil shiny side away from the bread at the end ?

  • Alton Brown is really about that sandwich life.

  • That’s a lot of time For a sandwich that can take a lot less time for only a bit less flavor.

  • Regardless of the subject matter, this degree of passion and precision is inspiring. This method indicates a high level of understanding of what works and does not work, relative to its' subject, which can only come from long experimentation and experience.

  • That looks like the worst grilled cheese sandwich ever!! 👎👎

  • "In the words of my 13 year old daughter... "Daddy plz put more of your cheese deep inside me" GOLD!

  • He unironically said "six to nine minutes". Amazing.

  • Mad lad

  • I wish someone would make me one of those.

  • If you already have a bbq fired up then yes. Veggie alternative I suppose. Otherwise I can just make the same on a George Forman

  • 4:02 i see you there babish

  • YOU GOT A SUB FROM THIS VIDEO!!! THANK YOU!!!

  • I love this guy. I wish PBS would pick him up and they could drop Nick Stellino (who's just full of himself and his BS Italian accent).

  • Welfare cheese or kraft singles and wonder bread best grilled cheese. If your feeling crazy add bacon

  • no mayo or nothing? probably tastes plain and dry af

  • Who honestly dislikes literal GRILLED cheese sandwiches?

  • This is asinine. The recipe is good, but "grilling" the cheese is absolutely non-contributory.

  • I have seriously always wondered why they don't call them griddled cheese sandwiches.

  • That crunch at the end was way too crunchy

    • Aruni Wawlagala never crunchy enough

  • I wonder how many people have actually done this. Still cool though

  • ive never seen anyone so pissed off about a god damn grilled cheese

  • Sir, not enough cheese....

  • so much work ! no thanks

  • Mixing cheeses might itself be considered a compromise. That's why I'm a fan of Manchego for grilled cheese.

  • A cheese sandwich that has been grilled

  • Uh I think I’m just good with putting cheese on buttered bread and cooking that cause it’s good too

  • Someone forgot the squeaky wheel sound effect when moving the chalk board :(

  • should this guy give me nostalgia ? idk why im getting that vibe

  • damn thatdude is kreepey af

  • I just can't get behind this. The appeal of a grilled cheese sandwich has nothing to do with the cheese itself actually being grilled, you can't do that. It's the simplicity. The idea that anyone can make it. For him to pedantic about the name and then say whatever at the end defeats the point. It's the sandwich itself that is grilled. What kind of sandwich? A cheese sandwich. "Let the cheese and bread get to know each other". If you just cooked them together like in the original recipe you wouldn't have to do that. Also, the bread is far too thick, and there isn't enough cheese there. Also, no one adds spices to their cheese, or uses two types. More complications. Seriously, what is the point? What is the difference between the cheese melting while on the bread, or on a spatula?

  • GriLLEd ChEESE Sandwich

  • Personally, I used crushed walnuts, cayanne, and a little pesto on my grilled cheese and prefer coconut oil over butter.

  • olive oil .... no , no ,no ,no ,no ,no ,no !

  • I use the bag stuff and sliced cheese I'm patiently waiting for him to come into my house and yell at me It still tastes okay though

  • this was my recommended this was good

  • Food vsauce?

  • Dammit now I‘m hungry

  • I dont agree. Its a cheese sandwich that is griddled. It doesnt have griddled cheese. I think grilling the cheese is not the point because if you were to make a grilled cheese sandwich as you would say it you wouldnt toast the bread.

  • The admonition about pre-grated cheese - LOL! When is the last time Alton had to scrape the crud off of a box grater (inside and out) after shredding block cheese? Or does he plan on sharing his interns with his audience so we can have functionaries scrub our stuff clean?
