Not Your Typical Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The cold weather makes most people think about comfort foods – things like a hearty soup and a great grilled cheese sandwich. Grilled cheese sandwiches are a favorite for kids as well as adults. You can cook the sandwiches in a heavy skillet but if you have a George Foreman Grill your work is even easier.

While basic grilled cheese sandwiches are delicious, there are ways to dress the sandwiches up. One of the easiest ways is to add tomato slices. The tomatoes and cheese are a perfect combination.

Just butter your bread as usual, add a slice of cheese, then add tomato slices and top it off with another slice of buttered bread. Place uncooked sandwiches in a pre-heated heavy skillet or in your indoor grill and cook on each side about 2-3 minutes, until a light golden brown.

Other awesome additions include bacon, pickles, olives, and even jalapeno peppers. Get creative when you make your sandwiches. Share your ideas; tell us what you like on your grilled cheese sandwiches.

If you’ve been wondering what to have for lunch or dinner today or tomorrow why not make it easy on yourself and serve up grilled cheese sandwiches with a bowl of soup or chili? It’s a great day for comfort food!
