Raspberry Grilled Cheese

My favorite appetizer is a raspberry-glazed cheese ball, so I used similar ingredients to dress up a plain grilled cheese sandwich. The quick combination was unique but delicious, and it became a popular request in my house.

    We really like this recipe. I call it Fancy Grilled Cheese. Strawberry jam works well as well as Gouda cheese. I use whatever bread I have on hand an it’s still delicious. I omit the pecans because my husband doesn’t like nuts in things. I don’t like when people review recipes when they’ve made several changes too. The only reason I am doing it is to let people know that you can use things on hand and it still is amazing.
