    I have been making these since I first saw the recipe years ago in Taste of Home. I love them!! I do a couple of small tweaks such as use onion powder instead of onion salt and add about 1/2 cup of extra cheese ( I always add extra cheese to every recipe I make, not just this one). I make these a lot for lunch and I always have to make extra! They come out creamy and fluffy and sooo yummy!

    These sandwiches are way too salty and tangy. I made them in place of grilled cheese with tomato soup and not one of my family members would finish even half of their sandwich. The texture was terrible, but the taste was worse.
