I have ventured to the mountaintop. It smelled of grilled cheese. This pinnacle, as glorious as the gods of processed foods could conceive, goes by a less-than-glorious name: the Kraft Research & Development ...

FYI - if you're ever near Mountain, Wisconsin, there's a bar and grill called Rawhide that makes probably the most divine grilled cheese EVER. If God made a grilled cheese, this would be it.

What??? Dolphin? Is that the brand? If not what do dolphins have to do with bread? Let's see - yeast, water, flour, maybe some herbs or spice - where does dolphin come in?

Free Range Flax?? What the heck is that? Do you just go out and throw seed to the wind and let it grow anywhere to make it "free-range"? I'd hate to have to harvest that crop.

This is taking things too far. It's OK to know how and where your food ingredients come from - but these descriptions defy any common sense. Makes you wonder what they are truly selling if you believe that labeling.

Thanks for the article- I was considering making grilled cheese tonight, and now I almost certainly will do so tomorrow! Could this be the first in a series on 'Great Depression Food'?

Not to be a buzzkill--I too grew up on this classic--but, knowing what we now know about healthy eating, I have trouble with the idea of promoting a slab of saturated fat nestled between two pieces of carb loads slathered in butter.

For some reason, even in moderation, the grilled chese seems like a recipe for arteriosclerosis.

Try their deluxe deli cheese slices. That is the closest to the OEC.

Kraft...illlllll. I haven't had a decent grilled cheese sandwich since they took "Old English Cheese" off the market. Man! That was the best!

Okay, I'm vegetarian, but it ain't all that serious. Soy cheese? You have got to be kidding. I don't mind a little of the rennet (although there is cheese that uses vegetable rennet and is satisfactory in a grilled cheese sandwich). My grilled cheese sandwich: Jarlsberg on multigrain (using organic butter), tomatoes on my salad (not in my sandwich), cream of tomato soup from Trader Joes or Whole Foods. Serve this with a cup of rooibos tea, and I am set for the winter.

Hey - JP -- that is the definition of a buzzkill! Lighten up Francis. A grilled cheese once in a while is not going to kill you.

Mom's grilled cheese and tomato soup takes me back to a time when life was so simple. Why do we have to take something so pure and simple and make it fussy and complicated? My theory, KISS: Keep it simple, stupid.

Your report on grilled cheese was fascinating.

What is it with the D-bags on here who think every story has to be a commentary on world politics? Is it not o.k. with you that newspapers have comic strips? How about a TV guide? Dear Abby? Sports? According to you, what is newsworthy?

the best cheese for a decadent, homemade grilled cheese sandwich is Applegate Farms White American Cheese. Not all oil like Kraft -- and it's creamy and delicious.

I miss the grilled cheese #5 from Leo's Lunchbox. It had tomato and avocado. So good. Oh, why did they have to close?

Thank you for pointing out my intentional redundancy; used to bring attention to my lead point which was that the "article" was crap. Clever, huh? Maybe I COULD get a job with the Tribune Editorial board. I can be cloying and saccharine, I can use cliches and trite terms, I can write smug unfunny unhappy little articles about nothing. Dare to dream!
