Hope you enjoy these! Let me know which one you think was the best – your comments are always welcomed!
The grilled sandwiches is very unique because most of the time, sandwiches are coked inside the ovwn. This will be a perfect snack for everyone.
The grilled sandwiches are tasty and delicious. They are made up of various ingredients which make each of them unique and distinctive in taste.
I am looking at your Parisian, well you are familiar with a Croque Monsieur (sauteed ham and cheese sandwich with dijon mustard), or even better the Croque Madam ( a Croque Monsieur topped with an egg and beschemel).
These would be far more suited and tasty choices when attributing grilled sandwich fare to french locals.
Thanks so much for your comment – if you would like to send it your recipes, I would be happy to post them for you!
The Italian grilled cheese sandwich sounds yummy. I think I might try it. It might taste good with diced tomatoes instead of roasted peppers, too.
That is a great idea! I will try it as well and you let me know how it turned out for you!
You may think it’s the best ever but in my books this is the most unhealthy recipe!! Tons of fats and salt.
@Kristy who ever said these were low fat recipes? I will say these are a whole lot better than the vast majority of fast foods and processed foods. So, is this something you want everyday? No. Is it a much healthier treat than ANY fast foods or processed foods that are in most people’s freezers? Yes!
Jewish rye, gouda, and sliced pears. The perfect sammich.
@Brad you’re right that sounds like a sammich of awesomeness!
Are you familiar with salt-risen bread? It’s kind of like sourdough but denser and more tangy (at one point the starter smells like barf, but it’s worth the ordeal). Salt-risen bread absolutely makes the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever. Try it once and you won’t go back to any other kind.
Thanks so much for the tip! I have not tried that but from what you say, it sounds absolutely perfect! I am going to give it a try the first chance I get!
What the hell does the “O Canada” have to do with Canada? I see no beaver meat or maple syrup!
@Canucks Back Bacon is the Canadian part there Genius.
