Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Teressa Drenth


"Our family loves the "feel good" meal of grilled cheese and tomato soup, but I was looking for something a little more, shall we say, fancy? I came up with this recipe when I had some leftover dip mix still in the refrigerator and thought it might taste good between potato bread and toasted. After a couple of enhancements the Gourmet Grilled Cheese was born. Enjoy!"

It's fun to see how people can take a basic sandwich and make it into something extraordinary! The blend of cheeses is lovely in this grilled cheese. We really liked the chives in the sandwich. We opted to use Hawaiian bread and it was perfect. Make a batch of the cheese mix to keep in your fridge. Then you'll have a quick and easy sandwich! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
