The 50 recipes are divided into 8 chapters:

 "Just Cheese"
"Meat and Cheese"
"Anything Goes"
"Veggies and Cheese"
"Global Grilled Cheese"
"Grilled Cheese on the Go"
"Regional American Grilled Cheese"
"Old Favorites and Modern Sides"

One grilled cheese sandwich can fit into multiple chapters, but in my opinion, all of the sandwiches are matched with their most correct category and shouldn’t prove confusing. I am especially impressed with the “grilled cheese on the go” chapters, as it features recipes from such grilled cheese staples as The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, Grilled Cheese & Co and The Grilled Cheese Truck. When you are ready to choose a recipe, use the chapters if you know what you want. Otherwise just start thumbing through, letting the book be your guide through the many options. That is how I decided on my sandwich.

I had no idea what to expect from "Grilled Cheese, Please!" so I simply opened my mind … and the book. I had a stack of Post-It Notes to the right of me as I found multiple recipes to mark for future examination. I found 11 sandwiches that showcased the uniqueness of the cookbook and its recipes. These selections include spinach, egg, and manchego; artichoke grilled cheese; havarti with balsamic-glazed carrots; and arepas with monterey jack, plantains, and black beans. Sound amazing, don’t they? I enjoyed other recipes but vetoed them for various reasons.
