    If you want real stringy proper melt cheese, get Swiss.

    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.

    Gruyere or comte.

    Perhaps they are better for grilling though.

    We should get a cheese thread going.

    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 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. :leet:

    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.

    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...
