For a classic grilled sandwich, this recipe is the best. You can also use your imagination for other fillings, such as a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, chives or even a tiny spoonful of salsa. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

"This was a great recipe. It was not your run-of-the-mill sandwich - great flavors going on! It was great as it was, but you could change it up many ways."

"We made this three days ago for Girl's Friday Night and the sandwiches were great hit with everyone! We had a lot of leftover meats and cheeses from a food day at work and so we made a variety of these sandwiches with different meats using a paninni sandwich maker to grill them. One of my friends even sprinkled garlic and Italian seasoning on the butter for grilling. Great idea! Thanks for the good recipes, TOH!"

"Good stuff, mix in what you prefer. The mayo & mustard give a nice tang that reminds me of a deviled egg, my favorite. BTW if you have one, dust off your George Foreman grill to press the sandwiches. It works amazing...I don't use them for cooking anything else. No need to butter the bread, just swipe the griddle with butter & you're good to go. Crunchy outside & gooey inside. Yummo. Thanks TOH & the OP for taking a simple grilled cheese & helping me think outside the box."
