This sandwich recipe has been passed down in my family for years and I even sold my husband on it and it's now his favorite. It's your average grilled cheese but with brown sugar added.

Ok I have to admit that I showed this recipe to my husband so we could make fun of it. Little did I know he'd be intrigued! He made it for lunch today and really enjoyed it. I tasted it and it wasn't bad although I did stick with a plain ol' grilled cheese for me. Only change he made was to use a medium sharp cheddar instead of american cheese. Thanks for the recipe and sorry I doubted you! Read More

I just had to make this as soon as I read it because it sounded so interesting and it's easy to make. I was pleasantly surprised! I accidentally burned it and it still tasted good! Read More

I liked this recipe. I guess I must have a well developed sweet tooth because I almost wanted to put more brown sugar on this sandwich! The brown sugar melts into a yummy syrup in between the cheese slices. I'll probably make this again:) Read More

It definitely was different than a regular grilled cheese. The sweetness was a little strong so I would suggest to others to put less brown sugar than the recipe calls for. Otherwise I really liked this and will use again. Read More

I had one of these sweet grilled cheeses 35 years ago at a friends house for lunch one day and loved it. I still eat them this way once in awhile. Worth trying people! Read More

This was good but I only used half of the brown sugar that the recipe called for muenster and cheddar cheeses with medium salsa as a dipping sauce for the sandwich so I'd have sweet and spicy. Read More

Not bad I think as a previous poster wrote I would have liked it with a cheddar cheese and maybe even some apple sliced paper thin on a nice sourdough bread. It will be something I will experiment with I think my kids will enjoy it after they get over the shock that mommy is letting them have sugar for lunch. Read More

I was intrigued by this recipe. I thought that I would make it for my son and myself for lunch. It wasn't bad at all. Just very different. I made one with American cheese and one with cheddar. I think I liked the chddar better. My 3 yr old ate the american and said "I don't like sugar in my grilled cheese." I don't think I'll be making this again. Sorry. Read More
