Here is another addition to my grilled cheese recipes. Made these up for yesterday’s lunch, and everyone liked them enough that I was requested to put them on the lockdown rotation. I made it two ways: In a panini press, and in a skillet… both were well received. They are easy/peasy to put together, plus you can modify the recipe with what you have on hand. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
