Does your family love sandwiches? Everybody probably has had a grilled cheese sandwich, but have you ever thought about the possibilities of making other sandwiches with cheese? For this review I received a copy of 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches! I guess I have never thought about all the different kinds of sandwiches you can make. The ingredients of some of these sandwiches are surprising, they even have dessert sandwiches and some of them sound delicious! I made the Dark Chocolate and Banana Grilled Cheese and I was pleasantly surprised how delicious it was. Another favorite was the Hawaiian Grilled Cheese. My family loved the Lasagna Grilled Cheese sandwich! This book has opened up my eyes to all the delicious cheese sandwiches that are out there. I would recommend the 150 Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!
