Not your typical grilled cheese. These flavors go great together. It's great without bacon for my vegetarian friends.

Nice change of pace from the regular grill cheese sandwiches routinely served. Used caramelized onions in place of the red onion as that's all I had and served with Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup also from AR. Easy, peasy dinner which everyone enjoyed! Read More

Grilled cheese turned up to eleven! I think the only thing that I would change would be to sauté the onions a little first so that the sandwich isn't overwhelmed by the raw onion flavor. Read More

The only thing I did differently was to use sourdough sandwich bread that is thinner than what the recipe called for. I put the cheese next to the bread on both slices and I used the same pan (wiped out) that I used for frying the bacon. I'd recommend that if you also use thinner bread like this that your food all be at room temperature so the cheese will melt appropriately! Thanks for a very yummy lunch! Read More

This was the perfect answer to "I forgot to take something out for dinner." Actually had all the ingredients on hand. Read More

I made these sandwiches exactly as the recipe directed and they were awesome! For me I could do without the bacon but my husband insisted! Next time his will have bacon and mine won't! Read More

I loved it! I've had gourmet grilled cheese before but I'll admit that this one was better. I used two other cheeses (whatever I had available) instead of pepperjack and I found that olive oil worked better than butter. I also did not use onions and regular bacon instead of thick. I will DEFINITELY be making this again! (I might even add jalapenos next time.) Read More

Loved it indeed! I had to use prosciutto crudo ok it's not bacon. It's all I had in the fridge. So sue me. The creamy avocado and the spicy cheese just make a great couple. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
