Nice take on grilled cheese! Not sure if I'd call it "gourmet", but it definitely takes regular grilled cheese to a new level. I used reduced fat cream cheese and Hellman's light mayo along with just a bit of garlic vs. garlic salt. I added a couple of slices of tomato which took it over the top! Perfect with a bowl of hot soup!

I just got finished eating this sandwhich. I followed the recipe to the T. It was fabulous! I make all the recipes just like they are written the first time. This way I can say if it's a good recipe or not. If I start changing it won't even be the same recipe. So...I thought it was excellent just how it was. Salty but not as bad as other reviewers make it seem. Rich but not too rich. After I made it the recipe way the first time, I added fresh sliced tomatoes the second. It was just wonderful! I don't think I can go back to eating regular grilled cheese sandwhiches after this!

I just made this again. I used garlic powder instead of salt and that made all the difference in the world. The sandwich doesn't need the extra salt. I also skipped the mayo like I did the first time. I've been making this with plain white bread and it works fine although I'm sure french bread or some other bread like foccacia would be awesome. A tip I have when making grilled cheese sandwiches of any kind is to use partially or completely frozen bread. The bread will hold together better and you won't break it when you slather on the margarine or butter. It doesn't add to the cooking time and you end up with a nicer looking sandwich!
