I could not get enough of this sandwich! I was worried that the spinach would add a bitter, mushy taste to the grilled cheese, but it was a nice compliment to the other flavors. The only problem I had was with the bread getting soggy pretty quickly after the sandwich leaves the griddle.

A tasty twist on the classic grilled cheese. I love the mushrooms and sauerkraut combo.

Myhusband and I are attempting to eat one meatless dinner a week. He is a big time meat and potatoes man. I made this a few weeks ago and he requested I make this again. It is very good.

I hesitated to make this recipe as I really didn't think it would taste good. Boy was I wrong! The flavor combination really works, and it is so easy to make. I already bought the ingredients for another batch. I used pumpernickel bread.

Husband didn't like spinach in sandwich and wanted more dressing but I liked it as written so we'll adapt his next time.
