    VERY GOOD!! would probably have been better if I had used the ingredients that were written in the recipe. (type of cheese and bread) The butter spread would be fabulous on almost anything!

    This was good. I used a french peasant bread, which worked well. My daughter, who doesn't like grilled cheese, actually ate this kind!

    My husband has now requested that all of his grilled cheese sandwiches are made this way!
