Reviews for The Ultimate Grilled Cheese
"The kids and I LOVE this! I don't buy italian bread, instead I use the cheap white bread and it is still soooo good! I also sometimes use shredded italian cheese blend instead of plain mozzarella."
"I can't wait to try this recipe but I have a question. Do I use miracle whip or real Mayo?"
"A good deliciously different grilled cheese. I think it would also be good to make it hardier by adding ham!"
"These were so delicious! I made them on a whim so I only had regular white bread and they were still wonderful!"
"The whole family loves it. I just use a little less mayo."
"This was too rich for my taste. The mayo overwhelmed the flavor and I guess that's not what I want to taste in a grilled cheese. Maybe reducing or using sour cream would be better. For as much filling as this made, I could have easily doubled the amount of bread. The sandwiches were so overstuffed, maybe it was the size of my loaf, but that could be another reason they seemed too rich for me. But I love the idea of cream cheese and multiple cheeses for a grilled cheese."
"Sooo good! My whole family has loved it for years."
"ukfan, just a heads up....an 8 oz. package of shredded cheese is considered 2 cups volumewise, 8 oz. by weight. Check your package. I think this is were your confusion comes in. A cup of marshmallows wouldn't weigh NEARLY what a cup of molten steel would, but they would BOTH measure ONE CUP.
"just a heads up...1 cup is 8oz, not 4oz. so do you use 1 cup or 4oz??"
"This has been a favorite for us for a long time. It is especially good paired with a tomato-basil soup."
