I came up with this recipe because I always enjoy pickles on the side with my basic grilled cheese sandwich. So one day I decided just to put my pickles on the sandwich in addition to some other favorite ingredients. I think it turned out really delicious!

Thanks for the push I needed to step out of my childhood grilled cheese w/White American and yellow mustard standby. I didn't have any cheddar so I did use provolone and white American and I also added ham for some protein but it would have been fantastic w/out the ham (and w/whatever cheese you prefer) as well! I liked this so much I may just have one for lunch today too... Read More

Interesting sandwich. The first bite was a bit odd to me but after that it was pretty good! Made exactly as directed. Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely something I would not have thought of. I might make this again for my husband to try as he LOVES pickles. Read More

I used regular yellow onion sauteed a little bit first and very thin slices of cheddar and mozzarella. I also just used cooking spray instead of butter and this sandwich was excellent. What a good idea. Read More

This was sooooo good! I had white cheddar and american so I just combined both. Also I used white bread. This was really tasty and we all enjoyed the combination of flavors. I will be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Wow this was great! Admittedly I made a few changes to combine it with my other favorite grilled cheese sandwich. I used American cheese instead of Cheddar because I had it in the house...I also spread a little whipped cream cheese on one side and sprinkled the insides with italian seasoning. So good...I would never have thought of this combo but it was delicious! Read More

I used swiss cheese and zesty sandwich stackers with the Vidalia onion. I also used a light spreading of mayo on both sides of the sandwich. Quick sandwich for a mom on the go! Read More

This was surprisingly good. I used processed Swiss sliced and a red onion; I sliced my pickle length-wise. I think I will saute the onion a little before adding it to the sandwich so it has a little less bite. I used to make something similar (when I was a child) in the microwave with canned tuna processed American cheese slices and pickles; I would layer it all on a sandwich and nuke it for a minute or two. I may try chopping up the onion and pickles into some canned tuna layered between the slices of cheese and grill it. YUM! Read More
