    What are your thoughts on American Cheese ? I would be greatful for feedback from our Talk Bassers from outside the US in regard to this question. I greatly enjoy the yellow variety myself , I have noticed that a thiner cut yeilds a more enjoyable expirence.
  2. American Cheese is not real cheese IMO. Just processed crap cheese that us Americans gladly accept.

    I for one, do not mind American Cheese much, I just hate eating it cold. If you throw some American Cheese in with something hot, perhaps a grilled cheese, ham and cheese sandwich, etc.... then you're talking my language.
  3. Gotta echo Sonic here. Melted is better, otherwise, just like alot of real America: over processed and fake ( ;) think boob and nosejobs...no hatin here...)

    I have had very high quality American Cheese before. It is not all of the Kraft Singles variety but most of it is just Meh.........
  6. Tastes good on a hamburger with some bacon.

    You have Cheddar? How can you have Cheddar? Mind you I suppose we have "New York" bagels.

    Bleh. I'll eat it on a hot sandwich or in an omelette, but only if the person or restaurant doesn't have any other kind. Gimme the real stuff, from Vermont cheddar to gruyere to brie to blue, and many points in between.

    It sure comes in a hell of a lot of packaging.

    It's no Gorgonzola.

    Though watching Homer eat 64 slices of it in one sitting was entertaining.

    Of course, that's Homer from the Simpsons. The classical Homer I understand, dined on browned butter and mizithra cheese while composing the Iliad. At least, that's what my menu from The Spaghetti Factory said.

    What the hell was I talking about?

    Oh well, I'm going to make a grilled cheese.

    I like turtles.
    When you say 'American Cheese' do you mean that stuff that is square and a scary shade of yellow, and comes as individual slices wrapped in clear plastic?

    Because I always thought that was the same stuff you put under carpets to help insulate your house.

    A good strong English cheddar is that way forward.

    American cheese is best melted. Other than that, it's alright. But then, I can't think of any cheese I've tried off the top of my head that's best when cold.

    I agree that heated/melted is best but a lot of cheese "sweats" at room temperature.
  19. Do you know what American Cheese is made out of?

    Sadness, that's what.

    The only place it should be allowed on is a burger.

    Cheddar FTW!
