Explain your revert[edit]

No edit summary here. Where you live, Swiss on whole wheat may be rare, but I assure you, it is not rare in the Northeast or West Coast, where a huge percentage of this country's population lives. I didn't want to push the issue by mentioning rye bread, but really, not every place in the U.S. is so whitebread. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:19, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

As a fellow Northeasterner albeit not a coastal one, I agree with the revert (though not the lack of an edit summary to go along with the revert). The operative phrase in the blurb is "most commonly", which means we begin by addressing the standard formulation of the recipe, which is American cheese on white bread. I'm not sure what the scenario is in NYC, but in Buffalo, which is not a huge city but also not a rural backwater, varieties using other cheeses and breads exist but are understood to be something of a hipster affectation. At any rate, the blurb closes out with "Fancier versions using other types of cheese, more exotic breads, and additions like bacon and tomatoes are often seen" which, I think, is sufficient to cover all territory beyond the basics. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:31, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
OK, I'll respect your take on it, but let's be a bit careful about treating everything other than the Northeast and West Coast as "real America". Swiss, with or without tomato, on white, whole wheat or rye (or a roll, when available) is no hipster affectation in New York City, but something I grew up with in the decidedly downscale 70s when New York was dangerous and nearly bankrupt, not Disneyland on Times Square.

Ikan - I dunno anymore - I just asked my wife, who grew up in a small exurb about an hour outside Pittsburgh (read: far more rural and whitebread than Buffalo, if still not exactly a backwater), and she agrees with you. I'm going to change my mind and say let's specifically call out Swiss cheese, whole wheat, and rye bread as common variant ingredients, while still making clear that American cheese and white bread is the most common version of the recipe, and while still leaving truly exotic "additions like bacon and tomatoes" to be covered by that last piece of the text. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:57, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
I'm good with that. Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:41, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

It really bears mention that you've done a great job on the American cuisine article. Thank you! Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:46, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
