WHAT IS BEST CHEESE FOR GRILLED CHEESE?
Cheese is a versatile ingredient so you can make a wide variety of cheeses work for your sandwiches. Semi-soft and hard cheeses like Fontina, Gouda, Monterey Jack, Havarti, provolone, mozzarella and cheddar melt well for that gooey, stretchy cheese texture and have flavors that combine well with other cheeses and ingredients. Use grated or thin slices of cheese for easier melting. Pre-shredded cheeses may contain additives that prevent them from melting easily,so freshly grated cheese is optimal.
Using two or three cheeses can help create interesting, nuanced gourmet grilled cheese. If you want to use a stronger tasting cheese or a soft cheese, consider combining it with a milder cheese to balance flavors and textures. Have fun and experiment with different cheese combinations to create a delectable grilled cheese customized to your unique tastes.
