This is a great twist on the classic grilled cheese. My grandmother taught me how to make these when I was a teenager. My kids love them!

I reviewed this recipe back when it was still a personal recipe. "We make these, too! Sometimes, if I have the inclination I'll add pepperoni in the middle and serve it with hot marinara. My kids especially flip for these. Even better results, cook in the cast iron skillet with a nice pat of butter."

There's just something about ooey, gooey melted cheese between a couple of slices of cripy bread... I LOVE grilled cheese and this is a nice twist with a bit of an Italian flair! This was so easy and so good! I opted to sandwich some mozzarella cheese slices in between with some thin sliced tomato and fresh basil to take the already awesome recipe over the top! Thanks for sharing a great recipe rae!

I tried this before it was a 'kitchen approved' recipe (Congrats, Rae!), and I've made it MANY times since. Here's what I had to say: AWESOME! This is one of those recipes that's like 'why didn't I think of that'? I love the flavors of the seasonings in the egg mixture and with the cheese it was just over the top! I'm notorious for 'doctoring up' an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich, but this was so different from anything I've ever done. It was like a savory stuffed french toast, minus the syrup, of course. ;) I did add a slice of swiss along with the american cheese and next time I may even add a slice of tomato. Thanks, Rae, for such a different and delicious twist on the ordinary, boring grilled cheese! I know I will be using this method often. :)
