"Like many true comfort food classics, a grilled cheese sandwich comes trailing clouds not of glory precisely, but of memory." I would argue for both glory and memory but who really cares?

Read about the wonder of the grilled cheese sandwich. The article's here. Should add the caveat: The LA Times online is subscriber only - but it's free!

My favorite grill cheese "memory" is the scene in Benny and Joon where Sam irons the sandwiches.

Joon: He can really cook, can't he?
Benny: Yeah, although for grilled cheese, I might use the wool setting.
Joon: That's what I told him.
Benny: Really? What did he use?
Joon: Rayon. Silk would have been too soggy. Cotton would have...
Benny: Would have burned it.
Joon: Right. Fortunately, he consulted me before giving it steam. I was four square against it.
