If you are a person who avoids bread, you may think that your days of experiencing melty, stretchy, grilled cheeses are behind you — but don’t be so sure.

I don’t remember which genius commenter suggested bread cheese, but those of you who don’t eat bread should thank them. If anything, bread cheese lets you make the purest iteration of a grilled cheese that ever was. Designed to be fried directly in the pan, free from carby accoutrements, this salty cheese develops a crispy crust all on its own.
Once cooked, you can dip the melted slab of dairy in soup, drizzle it with honey (and top with pistachios!), or just eat it all by itself.
It isn’t bad cold either. It’s a little squeaky, but I don’t mind a squeaky cheese. You can also microwave it for a quick snack if you can’t be bothered to pan fry. There are a lot of bread cheese options, and all are very good.
