turkey-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich

Donald Bellinger


I hesitated to post this. It seems too simple and not really a recipe per se. Anyway, when I was a freshman in college [967/68.]. The cafeteria would serve grilled cheese sandwiches with a thick tomato slice in the middle. As all our fare, ,This was always unannounced. so I was not expecting this disgusting surprise.[sorry, I don't like cooked or even warm tomatoes except in sauces.] So, I thought; what would I like in the middle of a grilled cheese sandwich, if anything? I immediately thought of meat of some kind/ This is the result. Hope you find it tasty. Don
