This open-faced egg and artichoke melts are a favorite at Jill Gross' home in Roselle, Illinois. "The Dijon mustard adds a nice zip, making them more exciting than plain grilled cheese," she says. "When my husband can't make it home for dinner, I treat myself to this sandwich instead of making a whole meal."
