Wikipedia: Grilled cheese
A grilled cheese (or toasted sandwich) is a hot sandwich typically prepared by heating one or more slices of cheese between slices of bread, with a cooking fat such as butter, on a frying pan, griddle, or sandwich toaster, until the bread browns and the cheese melts. A grilled cheese may contain ingredients besides the bread and cheese, as long as the latter is the main focus.

To this day we still refer to grilled cheese sandwiches as “gorilla” cheese - a name our son, Jesse, gave his favourite restaurant order when he was a toddler! Half the fun, of course, was seeing the waitress’ reaction! This “uptown” version has become a regular for us on Sunday nights.

Gorilla Cheese’s James Klayman Defends His $8.75 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

​When it took to the streets last month, Gorilla Cheese was the first of a trinity of fancy grilled-cheese trucks scheduled to debut this summer. Office workers and bloggers duly expressed excitement over the promise of roving melted dairy, tater tots, mac ‘n’ cheese, and a slew of dipping sauces. Until, that is, they were hit with an acute case of sticker shock.
