Grilled Goat Cheese & Arugula Sandwiches Recipe

To create a more “grown-up” grilled cheese sandwich, I threw in tangy goat cheese and peppery arugula. I enjoy a similar combination on pizza, and it worked here, too! —Jess Apfe, Berkeley, California

"This sounded so great, that I did not change a thing when I made it. I used used store-bought sour dough bread and it was fantastic!"
