mmm.. for me any cheese will do.. from basic american to smoked gouda.
but for my kids, i find what is easiest, and most loved, is to use the shredded bagged cheddar..

Smoked Guoda and Granny Smiths, sliced ultra thin..... on SF sourdough. MMMMMmmmmmmmM. I mean, Jarlsburg on Rye is good too, though.

We love mozzarella to make grilled cheese.
If you have really good bread, brush the top with olive oil and layer mozzarella, basil and tomato. Excellent sandwich!
I also do sharp cheddar, granny smith apples, a smear of dijon mustard and ham. Deee-lishhhhh!

Love kraft american, but not the ones in the individual wrappers. They are sliced but not wrapped.
love tomato on them too!

I'm not a master chef, so what kind/brand is the best but it's also pre-sliced?

I'm with Chanda, Velveeta is the way to go. I like mine on crunchy wheatberry bread - crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside!

I love baby swiss....and velveeta.....
But I absolutely cannot cook a grilled cheese sandwich without burning it!!!! My problem is that I try and multi task....which means while it is sitting there cooking i go and do something else, and inevitably it burns. EVERY TIME!!! You would think I would learn, but I don't.
So today I toasted bread in the toaster, slopped some cheese and mustard on it (to make it not quite as dry....and ate it. Not real good, but not burnt!! haha

Tillamook is the best cheese! It is PN/TN-free. Someone asked about Borden...I called before on that one not too long ago and they also are PN/TN-free. I haven't tried Velveta. Of course my son loves Kraft American singles.

Ick! I don't consider Velveeta to be cheese!
Other than that- it just depends on my mood!
Usually cheddar. Of course, I don't have a lot of options for bread (SoyA)... so I haven't had a proper grilled cheese in a long while...
I buy prepackaged sliced Sargento & Sorrento cheeses. They are better IMO than the kraft.

I have to agree about the Velveeta.... the only thing worse in my own imagination is Cheez Whiz. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
But this is just [i]sad[/i], woman!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] Make yourself some fantastic home-made bread and slice away!!
(Seriously, there is NOTHING to compare between BLTs or Grilled Cheese on [i]home made bread[/i] versus nassssty store-bought anyway. You are missing nothing.)
"Proper" in our house means with home-made San Francisco style sourdough bread. (DH has a SoyAllergy too.)

If you like unconventional, try brie with some crumbled blue (Maytag is best) and some apple slices. YUM!
