How Do You Cut Your Grilled Cheese Sandwiches?

I'm not much of a picky eater, but I do confess to sometimes being a perfectionist. I like things a certain way. For example I like water before I go to bed every night in my favorite plastic pink glass, I like my iced teas in a special glass as well and I won't eat a homemade grilled cheese sandwich unless it is cut into four triangles. It's all psychological, I know that a grilled cheese doesn't taste different if it is cut into squares or triangles or not cut at all but I like it cut into triangles. I'll have to ask DearSugar if this is considered obsessive compulsive behavior... Also, I'm wondering if maybe I'm not alone, so reader, how do you cut your grilled cheese sandwiches?

Thanks to this post, I found out that my husband prefers them diagonally! I guess it's whatever was done in your childhood.

I don't care how you slice it, but the cheese must be gooey and the bread crispy. Dammit now I want a grilled cheese :DROOL:

As long as there is cheese, ketchup and pickles on the side I'm a happy camper.

2 just seems the best to me 'cause it slows me down. Otherwise, I'd gobble it up in about 10 seconds flat!!! Melted cheese and buttery crispy bread mmmmmmmmmmm so hungry now

You know what I want? A fun cookie cutter that's almost the size of a slice of bread. How much fun would it be make a dazzling grilled cheese and cut it in a fun shape. I am going to do that for my kids someday...when I have them and have perfected a grilled cheese of course.

When in doubt DANCE!!! I sometimes get a metal cookie cutter and make the fun little ahapes as close to the crust as possible because sometimes i don't want crust and I have a whimsical shape to cheer up my plate. it gets a little gooey but it is still kinda fun!

I cut mine into truncated dodecahedrons. Just kidding. I cut diagnol, and then like abbyk, I rip off pieces. And of course the pieces get dunked in tomato soup. Yum yum yum! "Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"
