"VERY GOOD!! would probably have been better if I had used the ingredients that were written in the recipe. (type of cheese and bread) The butter spread would be fabulous on almost anything!"

"This was good. I used a french peasant bread, which worked well. My daughter, who doesn't like grilled cheese, actually ate this kind!"
