I like to use several varieties of cheese in my grilled cheese, but always a very sharp cheddar as the main one.. Also make my own sourdough bread as the base!

Hello,
My name is Brad McDaniel and my grandfather was David E. McDaniel. He worked at the Long Prairie Cheese Factory before working at Tillamook Cheese Factory. My grandfather's name is on a brick at the Tillamook County Flagpole. My wife and I love Tillamook cheese and will buy nothing else. Everytime we get up to Tillmook, we spend hours in the Cheese Factory. It is always the highlight of our vacation. We ARE Cheeseaholics. Thank you for such a GREAT product

I dip my buttered bread in parmesan cheese before grilling. It makes it really crispy and more flavorful too!

My sandwich: I use a nice thick slice of Tillamook cheese, sliced tomatoes, 2 slices of crisp bacon, :and sprinkling of diced green chilies, between sour dough sliced bread. Butter one side of bread and put in pre heated frying pan., While the bottom side is cooking, butter the top side. Flip to last buttered side when bottom slice is grilled to my satisfaction.

I LOvVE YOUR CHEESE

The gooier the better! I've loved grilled cheese since I was a kid... centuries ago. I would put butter in the skillet, then a piece of white (yes, it was that long ago) bread in, several slices of cheddar cheese, and then another buttered slice of white bread. After I turned the sandwich, I'd then put a plate on top to squeeze all the goodness together. They were the best sandwiches! Nice and toasty and gooey!

I was raised on nothing but Tillamook Cheese. Being from Portland and transplanted to California, for years I had my mother send me care packages of cheese since it wasn't available here, I'm 74yrs.. My fridge in never without sharp and black aged sharp. I've tried the ice cream and it is good but, I'm limited to those treats. My Mom made the best mac & cheese from those happy cows. When my children were 8,9, &10 we travelled up the coast and came to the factory. They truly enjoyed the full tour. When school started after summer vacation the teachers ask them to write something exciting they did, all three chose the trip to the factory. It was a great thrill for them & they talk about it to this day if cheese comes up in a conversation. I must add, Dad got his pocket emptied in the gift shop. Very nice place. Thank you for the experience. Tillamook is always a part of our family.
