Grilled Cheese De Mayo

Rated as 4.51 out of 5 Stars
695

"This is a nice change from your usual grilled cheese. It's made with mayo on the outside in place of butter and pepperjack cheese. It's a grilled cheese with a kick. Feel free to use your favorite cheese combination. To make it kid friendly leave out the pepperjack cheese."

Wow what a great sandwich. I used 12 grain bread instead of white. With the box grater using the slice side grated up some cheddar cheese, mozzarella and monetary jack cheese (I do not have ch...

This is the ONLY method I use for making grilled cheese sandwiches. The bread is not near as greasy using mayo as it is with butter - and it is delicious! I used this method to make 'Pico De Ga...
