Favorite way to jazz up grilled cheese?

I made a grilled cheese sandwich today with sharp cheddar (the English coastal cheddar that Costco sells) and decided to dip it in a little apple butter when it was done. Delicious! I also like to add some ripe tomato and dill to a grilled havarti sandwich. Of course there's the classic tomato, mozzarella, and basil, too.

What is your favorite way to make your grilled cheese extraordinary?

When we make grilled cheese at my house it is almost always

Whole grain bread
Jarlsberg
thinly sliced rings of onion
salsa

I used to use tomato, but Stirling doesn't like tomato, so I use salsa now.

I also like grilled cheese with ham or sautéed mushrooms. (But Stirling doesn't much like ham or mushrooms.)

I haven't made this yet, but I have eaten it: shredded, cooked chicken breast, slices of mango, brie, chopped pickled jalapeno. Use two pieces of tortilla to make the sandwich and fry or broil and cut into wedges.

I love thick slices of American cheese, fat slices of garden tomato several slices of pepper bacon cooked crisp then put on fat slices of white bread, which I brush with melted garlic butter,finely chopped parsley then into a skillet it goes and cooks til the cheese runs almost out the top and sides and the bread is a light golden brown.

A thick slice of Cotswald cheese (an English cheddar with chives and onions) on homemade sourdough.

Sliced jalapeno or pickled jalapeno peppers and some crisp bacon, and if tomatoes are in season, a slice or two. Homemade wholewheat bread, toasted. And, use extra sharp cheddar or a combo of cheddar and swiss or Jarlsburg. Dipping sauce--homemade salsa.

I use extra sharp cheddar or a combination of extra sharp cheddar and Swiss Gruyere - 2 layers of cheese with sliced tomatoes in between on Pumpernickel.

Sounds good! - Also, sliced apple would be good in there instead of the apple butter.
I used to do an omelet with extra sharp cheddar, chopped apples, and a little cinnamon - it was great - I'll have to try it again soon, plus the grilled cheese/apple or apple butter idea.
