    Grill the sandwich on medium heat. In a couple minutes turn and grill other side. When done remove & keep warm. This is when I sometimes add a thin slice of a sweet onion...don't laugh, it gives the sandwich a delicious crunch. Please try it you might like it... It's like grilling a cheese sandwich.
