so what're the best cheeses for toasted sandwiches? ie melted cheese
If you want real stringy proper melt cheese, get Swiss.
where to get cheaper bulk swiss cheese?
and if you are a real cheese lover... gorgonzola
Now where talking.
I find Colby works best for me, not as exciting as some of the others though i guess.
For an easy/cheap choice, I second Colby too. Quite reasonable melting properties and a bit of flavour.
'Nuther vote for Jarlsberg
Gruyere or comte.
Perhaps they are better for grilling though.
We should get a cheese thread going.
Bega Strong and Bitey.
Easy/cheap: Mainland Tasty (the dark green packet). It can be a bit oily, but it melts and flows well and it's got enough flavour to it to be interesting.
Personal fav: Red Leicester.
i've tried two of the flavours from these guys (classic and pickled onion) and they are great for grilling.
I third Colby, it melts gooood and large blocks don't cost too much. IMO finer cheeses are wasted in toasties and the like.
You are not serious. The best toastee I have ever had is in a little place in Bridge Road, Richmond, Melbourne, who do fantastic meals, but also sell some very very rare cheese.
The toastee costs $13. It has 3 types of cheese on it.
Umm cant remember brand maybe mainland but 4 cheese blend its grated cheese and has funny enough 4 cheeses in it ............ mmmmmmmmmm yummy
walk along the cheese isle in the supermarket till you can hear your arteries hardening. turn and pick up whatever you are standing next to. this is the perfect cheese for a toasted sandwich
The best I've tried in Australia is Red Leicester, but I've been unable to find any source for Monterey Jack.
Coles generic cheese slices
Yeah im a mixer. Gotta have something for the stringy-ness like a colby, mozzarella, or tasty. Then for more of a cheesy kick i use some grated Parmesan over it...
