6 Worst Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Ever

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!
Did you know that's today? Like I need another excuse to make myself a grilled cheese sandwich. As long as you're not lactose intolerant there is much to love about this non-holiday. Much indeed.

We already shared with you a full platter of scrumptious grilled cheese sandwiches ideas. But did you know there was a dark side to the classic? There are those who would twist the sandwich into something so unholy, so revolting, it's almost unrecognizable. Witness: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Gone Horribly Wrong.

First of all, there is our favorite: Denny's Fried Cheese Melt. Because your grilled cheese needs mozzarella sticks, obvs. I mean, there's a glimmer of a good idea in there. I like mozzarella sticks. I like their crisp outside/gooey insides. But when you slice this sandwich in half it looks like a cross section of something that use to be alive! Are those finger bones caught inside a sandwich?

Did you know Dairy Queen makes their grilled cheese sandwiches with toast and Cheese Whiz? Now you do.

Slash/Food came up with the worst grilled cheese sandwich recipe. Ever. And it's almost the same as Dairy Queen's! Remarkable. "Take two slices of low carb bread and toast them in the toaster. Then take two slices of low-fat American cheese (the brand doesn't matter - they all taste like tangy construction paper), place them in the middle, and press down firmly."

But it's still not as gross as the Jam Grilled Cheese. Do people really do this -- put grape jam on their grilled cheese sandwich?

My least favorite grillled cheese sandwich? THE BURNT KIND. You can scrape off the burnt part with a knife. Still, it's ruined.

And now, a photo that could ruin grilled cheese sandwiches for you forever. NO DON'T LOOK! Oh, you have to look. It's hilarious. And if you don't get why this is so gross/funny then just move on, seriously. Enjoy not having the implications of that image in your mind.

Have you ever had a gross grilled cheese sandwich?

My rule usuallly is if I can make it easy at home why order it out

Obviously Adriana has never TRIED a grilled cheese sandwich with jam on it. Don't knock it until you've tried it! I personally prefer strawberry jelly, but grape jam will suffice. About the only jam/jelly that I've found that doesn't really work is mint jelly. Ok, so I was overdue to shop and that's all that was left in the 'fridge - it was edible, but definitely NOT my first choice!

I LIKE my grilled cheese burned!  My wife prefers hers soft.  We have a mixed marriage (lol).

White, buttered bread, two slices of Kraft American single, and grilled to a golden brown and no further. And PLENTY of Campbell's Tomato for dipping. YUM!

I used to know a woman who used mayo instead of butter or oil for her grilled cheese. Her husband hated it but she insisted all oily substances taste the same when grilled

I love to use mayo instead of butter. It gives it a tangy zip. mmmm

My husband did not know grilled cheese could be served not burned until he married me. My mother-in-law heats the griddle WAY too hot and uses WAY too much butter. Chunks and chunks and chunks of butter, which all burns coal-black before the cheese in the middle of the sandwich is even warm, let alone melted! 

The first time I made him a grilled cheese sandwich the right way - dark golden brown, cheese perfectly melted all the way through - it was a revelation. Sometimes we get creative with our grilled cheese, but there is still nothing like a good old fashioned plain cheddar grilled cheese sandwich sometimes.
