Recipe: Extra Cheesy Grilled Cheese
With tasty additions of mayonaise, bacon and tomato, this hearty sandwich makes the most of your leftover Thanksgiving turkey and cranberries.
"I've made this 3 times since the recipe appeared in June '08 issue. Everyone has raved over it and requested the recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. It makes a huge batch. It is well worth the minimal effort involved to make it from scratch rather than buying from a store. Even my monthly luncheon group gave it straight 3's, the highest rating we give. We keep a batch in the refrigerator at work for those afternoons when we need a snack. We eat it on Ritz crackers."
"We really liked this recipe. It was perfect for a quick evening dinner. My husband wanted it for lunch again the next day."
"I've made this for three different occasions and it disappears every time. The last time I followed the make ahead steps, I was really worried when I put it in the oven, it looked soft and there was so much moisture, but it came through perfectly."
"This is a perfect itailian club sandwich. This is a new favorite for my wife and me. It's quick and simple for our busy days. The way the bread tastes with the baked parm is dreamy."
"We have been using this recipe for many years now and it's still a big favorite at our house. We make it using french bread loaves instead of the foccacia and serve with our favorite soup."
"An easy recipe when preparing for guests. Prepare it in the morning and you're done! I've made this recipe twice now and it was a hit both times. I used the boneless pork loin, as they were on sale, and the sandwiches couldn't have been better. The first time I served the pork sandwiches with coleslaw and the second time my guests provided potluck salads and desserts. Very easy entertaining!"
"I've made this sandwich twice, and it is a huge hit in my house. but why eat it cold? I wrap it in foil and bake it on 350 degrees until the cheese melts. It's better than any deli sandwich."
"My husband and toddler loved this! We'll make this again. I used half of the french bread and sauce and then served the leftover sauce over pasta with cheese the next night. Yummy!"
"Simply one of the best sandwiches I've ever had!"
"Awesome recipe!!! I received several requests for the recipe and served it as appetizers for lunches and parties."
"I made these sandwiches using tilapia that my husband grilled. My family loved them. We will definitely be having them again."
"This recipe is simple to make ahead of time. What a great spread to have on hand for a sandwich bar! I didn't have horseradish sauce so I mixed straight horseradish with mayo - about 1/2 and 1/2 of each. Turned out delicious - not too hot but a hint of it. Yummy! Got lots of compliments too....."
"I've made this several times and always get compliments! I have also made it for our Sunday Football at the Legion and when camping. If you like a bit of a kick, you can't go wrong. Everyone loves it!"
"What a great sandwich! I am so tired of the same ol, same ol so I tried this recipe and I am so glad I did, it was wonderful and my husband loved it as well."
"These were delicious! The only change I made was not shredding the cheese or chopping the turkey. I think it kept it from falling apart while moving them to be pressed. "
This is an updated version of a recipe that used ham, cheese, and mustard. Eyes lit up at our tasting table when these came out of the oven. These crowd pleasing sandwiches will surely delight guests.
- Recipe: Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches
"I have been cooking this sandwich for 5 years. My friends love it! Yes, it's a bit messy/big, but the taste is awesome. I added a little rosemary/thyme for a fresh taste. Great, easy sandwich. "
"This sandwich was GREAT! My family loved it (even my 2 year old) and wants me to make it anytime or for a fun football game watching party! I put some of the cheese in the middle of the spinach so that it would melt there and help hold it in....wonderful! "
"I loved this recipe! Great weeknight dinner to throw together. I used light ranch, and reduced fat Mexican blend cheese. You would never miss the fat. Definitely will make again! "
