"Combined the sour cream, oregano, 1/4t dried basil and the onion together, used part skim shredded mozzarella instead of slices and thick cut bacon. Great sandwich!"

"My family loved this sandwich. It was such a great twist to just regular grilled cheese. We will definitely make this one again. I did not have sour cream so I had to use plain yogurt and it still turned out great."

"This was my first time making a grilled cheese sandwich with sourdough bread - loved, loved, loved! I omitted the onions, but used everything else. I used Roma tomatoes - I prefer them in sandwiches as they have less juice & hold together well when sliced. The sour cream & oregano add a great flavor to this sandwich. Yum!"

"This sandwich is so awesome!! My family loves it. I like it with cilantro better than oregano, but I think you could use whatever herb you like and it would be great:)"
