More grilled cheese tips from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board:
The cheese: Shredded gives a faster, more even melt. Chilled cheese grates more easily. Try mixing several kinds.
The bread: Slice dense bread thinner so cheese melts faster. Use soft butter on the outside for easier spreading and more even browning.
The skillet: Pick a big enough pan. Gently smoosh sandwich after flipping to get an even spread of cheese.
