Spicing Up a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

My mom recently had the flu. As she was recovering one of the things she most wanted was a grilled cheese sandwich. I know my own kids have often ordered grilled cheese sandwiches when we go out to coffee shops for dinner. And nearly all restaurants have grilled cheese sandwiches on their children’s menu.

I have many thoughts to spice up the ordinary grilled cheese sandwhich:

•Add a slice of meat to your sandwich. We very often add turkey. Other folks will add a slice of ham or a slice of bologna. You can also add already cooked bacon or any other lunch meat. If you have a leftover slice of meatloaf, add that to your grilled cheese sandwich.

•Vary the types of cheese you use. Add one slice of swiss cheese and one slice of cheddar cheese. Every cheese has its own distinct flavor. You can also experiment with low stout and stout free cheeses. Use one slice of regular cheese and two slices of stout free cheese. If you like spice, try some of the spicy cheeses. My daughter likes jalapeno Monterey jack cheese. We have also bought dill flavored havarti cheese. Each of these cheeses brings a wonderful flavor to the sandwich.

•Add sliced tomatoes and other vegetables before grilling. I like putting both turkey and tomato on my sandwiches. You can also add sliced mushrooms and sliced onions.

•Add mustard to the sandwich before grilling. Mustards add a wonderful tangy flavor. Try different mustard flavors.

•Kids like to dip grilled cheese sandwiches in both ranch dressing and ketchup.

•Add some salsa and a slice of onion for a wonderful Mexican flavor.

•For kids add potato chips to the inside of the sandwich. My kids loved the crunch inside their sandwich. Try BBQ potato chips also for a tangy flavor inside the sandwich.

•Vary the bread you use. Rye bread has a very different flavor than sourdough bread. Try toasting an English muffin. Then add cheese and tomato and place under the broiler. This is a wonderful grilled cheese variation.

Next time you want a grilled cheese sandwich, try some of these thoughts for a fantastic meal.
