"This is not the same old grilled cheese with ham. It has a wonderful mixture on the outside to grill that makes the sandwich over the top. I put this on all my grilled sandwiches now. This is good with a soup that does not have meat in it."

One heck of a good sandwich! I used sourdough bread and dijon mustard for our sandwiches with a dash of dried basil. Our daughter stayed for supper and she also loved the sandwich. Everyone should give this a try! Thank you again sweets for sharing your recipe! Made and reviewed for the Photo Forums February Soup and Sandwich Event.
