"This was one of son's favorite sammys, they are especially great using garden tomatoes, I make them using Pepper Jack cheese but American cheese slices works good also. Butter amounts stated in instructions may be adjusted to your taste"

Grilled cheese kicked up a notch! Used turkey bacon and a couple of roma tomatoes to make these sandwiches. Added fresh ground pepper to the tomatoes on my sandwich and served with diner524's Roaster Tomato Soup, loved our lunch. Made and reviewed for the What's On The Menu? game.
