I've always added tomato to my GC sandwiches... but I have to say the addition of onion and jalapeno really turned an otherwise fairly boring lunch into somwthing special! Taste is GREAT. I used part of a red onion sliced into very thin rings and added about half the jalapeno already diced in the can. I put all the extras between the 2 slices of cheese... seems the melted cheese helps hang on to the tomato onion and pepper much better than putting it on top... and it's alot easier to flip that way not to mention a bit less messy to eat. Butter is much better tasting on GC's and I really wouldn't even TRY them with Margarine. Totally different taste and the butter browns up so much nicer. I think I may have found my new fave GC right here in this recipe! Next time I'll add a bit more jalapeno! Thank you PATELGURL... these GC's rock! Read More

These were a little too spicy for me. Hubby loves spice so he thought they were delicious. I just added onion and tomato to mine. I did not grill these on the stove but baked open face in the oven. Read More

I've made these adult-style grilled cheese forever and LOVE them! The only difference is that I butter the bread then dust the slices with garlic powder-perfect! Read More

I changed this sandwich up to suit my personal tastes. I used a couple slices of hothouse tomatoes that had been left to "drain" on paper towels to remove some of the excess moisture. I used extra sharp white cheddar sliced cheese jarred jalapeno slices and ringed bermuda onion. Very good sandwich. I paired it with organic tomato soup. It was a great change from your basic grilled cheese. Read More

Yummy!!! One of the best grilled cheese sandwhiches I have ever had. I don't eat white bread soI used wheat. I don't care for onions so I left them out. I used vine tomatoes and added some bacon. Oh my! I think I am going to go and make another one.Thanks for the great idea of adding the peppers. Read More

This Recipe is really delicious. The onions tomatoes and peppers takes a good ole grilled cheese sandwich and kicks it up many notches to a whole new level. The spicy peppers in the cheese gives a pepper jack like flavor and the onions leaves a nice tingly feeling on the tongue way after you have finished the sandwich. You'll never make grilled cheese the same 'ole way again after eating this spicy grilled cheese sandwich. Thank You for posting it. Read More
