"Simple sandwiches that taste amazing! I will never make regular grilled cheese ever again. This will be my go-to recipe from now on for a grilled cheese sandwich."

"Made these tonight and my husband and I loved them. I did use ciabatta rolls and next time will try a sliced loaf, since the rolls' outer crust got a bit hard in the toasting."

"I also tried this sandwich with the garlic butter instead of italian dressing. I also used the mozzarella that I had on hand. What a great sandwich. It tastes a bit like a bruschetta."

"I used fresh basil and garden tomatoes, which gave these sandwiches great flavor! I pre-cooked the bacon the day before. Just before assembling the sandwiches, I re-heated the bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet, which really saved on time the day of the party. Everyone loved these sandwiches!"
