Grilled Cheese, Please!

50 Scrumptiously Cheesy Recipes

Grilled Cheese, Please! is a new modern twist on all things created in the form of a grilled cheese sandwich. The grilled cheese sandwich has evolved over the years and this book features some of the great new specialty sandwiches that will have your mouth watering in no time. Gone are the days of the plain white bread and one slice of American cheese your mom made you. These spectacular creations are masterpieces in their own right. They will have you drooling before you're half way finished reading this cookbook.

There are over 50 tantalizing recipes using your classic bread and many other new loaf varieties. Grilled Cheese, Please! also includes tips and tricks for making the perfect sandwich every time and making it restaurant quality. The hardcover book is filled with beautiful color photographs that will have your tummy growling for more. Some of the sandwiches are not double decker’s but 4 layers high with melted cheese hanging out all around. You'll feel you could just stick your finger on there and go around the edge of the plate right from the picture.

Here are my favorites; Grilled Cheese with a Twist (bacon), Say Oui to Normandy (black forest ham), Italian Melt (pancetta), Pizza Grilled Cheese, and the Monte Cristo sandwich.

There are a lot of flavor combinations to try in this book. I really enjoyed the hazelnut butter spread recipe that was included. I've already made that and added it to a couple of different sandwiches and it is truly a remarkable taste. So heat up your skillets and stovetops, it’s time to get ready to make some ooey gooey grilled cheese sandwiches. You may as well take this book to the kitchen with you because you're not going to get thru it without wanting to make one right then.
