Interesting grilled cheese ideas

A few years ago, DH and I were driving to Michigan to visit family and stopped for lunch at a place near Cleveland we had seen on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." They specialize in grilled cheese sandwiches. Here's their menu: Melt Bar and Grilled | Menu

I had the Rising Sun. It was a-ma-zing. I want to make it myself.

Cool menu - there are some great ideas there. I like mine with a little thinly sliced dill pickle. I also like them on inside out burger buns. The perfect hand sandwich....

I wanted one the other day.It was a every man for himself kind of thing.
Jumped on that opportunity Made myself a triple cheese messy, mess.

Bread buttered on both sides
2 slices of sliced cheddar cheese
1 slice of pepper jack
2 heaping tablespoons of chili

Slap it all together.Put it on the pannini maker until nicely toasted and it's basically a gooey mess.Done!
That was sooo good.

One of our favorites is made with a type of bread I make called bacon-and-egg bread, which is standard white loaf bread that is made using beaten egg and cooked bacon bits. I won't go into the process here but, suffice it to say, it's yummy on its own.

Butter one side of each slice, add a nice layer of Swiss cheese and another layer of thinly shaved ham. Assemble in the normal manner and grill until nice and brown and the cheese begins to melt. Yep, yep, yeppers. Pretty good sammich!

i'd get lost in menu like that.

Personally I like mine with thinly sliced tomato and bell peppers with seasoning I like.

Me too, Charlie - sliced tomatoes are almost a necessity on my grilled cheese sammies.

I used to put sliced tomato and onions in rings on my grilled cheese, but Stirling doesn't like raw tomato, so now I use salsa and onion in rings. I like that even better.
