Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mushroom-Gruyère grilled cheese

    • Nancith on April 19, 2017

      Wow, what an excellent sandwich! Takes a bit of prep work with sautéing leeks & mushrooms separately, roasting thin potato slices, but it was worth the effort. This even impressed my foodie son. It's hearty enough to satisfy meat-eaters as well as veg-heads.

  • Foghorn Leghorn grilled cheese

    • Nancith on May 05, 2021

      Hubby enjoyed this sandwich quite a bit! He's not fond of mustard, so mayo was subbed for the Dijon. I pan-cooked a chicken breast, the recipe's alternative to using roasted chicken breast. Quite easy to put together as well.

  • Feta fetish grilled cheese

    • mjes on August 26, 2021

      If I simply had the recipe without instructions, I might mistake this for a panini sandwich. I gritted my teeth and used garlic powder rather than fresh garlic. Be careful to keep the tomato slices thin for the right balance of ingredients. I enjoyed the sandwich.

  • Jalapeño popper grilled cheese

    • Kduncan on May 07, 2020

      We enjoyed this, though our apricot to jalapeno ratio was a bit more tilted to the jalapeno side. The addition of the chevre helped cut through the bite that the jalapeno gave which was really nice.

  • Piglet grilled cheese

    • Kduncan on June 08, 2021

      We subbed bacon in for the ham. Overall We liked this, though the mustard was the most prevalent flavor (which I am fine with). Will make again.

  • Mousetrap grilled cheese

    • Kduncan on January 18, 2021

      Good basic grilled cheese. Will happily make again.
