Dear 100 Hour Board,
What are the best additions to grilled cheese? I love me some kraft singles on white bread, but I am on a quest for the best grilled cheese.

My wife will sometimes add rosemary to her grilled cheese sandwiches and she claims they are the best.

Thinly sliced ripe avocado, Swiss cheese (plus the American slices) thin tomato slices, and fresh basil leaves. Then, add garlic to the butter when you grill it. Use white bread, but the *good* white bread.
I will stand by this recipe till I die.
Good ingredients make all the difference. Personally, I love mozzarella, tomato, basil, good olive oil, and balsamic vinegar all on either some really good kind of artisan or sourdough bread.
These crab cakes. It's not really feasible here in Utah, but I'm crying a little bit right now remembering this. Left over crab cakes, with a little extra Colman's mustard powder. I believe it was the best grilled cheese meal I've ever had. If you can't do the crab (please don't try with imitation, I'll be very sad) I think the fixins for the crab cake make a great flavor on their own. Take that recipe minus the crab, bread, and egg--make it up like some kind of mustard aioli and add that to your grilled cheese. I think it would be very hard to regret it.
Dear cheesy thanks,
Pesto, as You Suck at Cooking shows here. (It's a hilarious video where he attempts to make a grilled cheese sandwich with these thin robot arms. There's a few swear words, but considering what he's working with I can't blame him.)

Dear Gouda Sir,
I would suggest just looking at the menus of restaurants that serve grilled cheese. You'll get a pretty good idea of what can go on grilled cheese, and then it's just up to you to figure out what you're willing to make. My favorite grilled cheese was the grilled macaroni and cheese and some sort of asian take on the grilled cheese at this place in Cincinnati.
P.S. I originally finished your response quite early, but Google's algorithms caught up to me and today I got this in my news feed. Moral of the story: do some searching and then let Google do the rest.
