This is a hearty grilled sandwich with a distinctive and delicious combination of ingredients. The pickle slices add a bit of fun, and the barbecue sauce provides a hint of sweetness that's irresistible. -Henry Mujica, North Riverside, Illinois

"I made these for our family of three adults and everyone loved them. I made two changes just based on our personal tastes. I used Swiss cheese instead of the Monterey Jack called for and I grilled them in my panini press instead of on the stove top. Its a terrific combination of flavors!"
