    I want to try the roasted vegetable and cheese one. That looks so scrumptious.

  2. Jennifer Mercurio (@DoubleDutyMommy)

    oh my gosh! I love to spin grilled cheese into something more and exciting! I love BBQ and pineapple pizza so I’m sure I would love that sandwich as well. but something unfamiliar… I would like to try the Apple & Gouda!the apple, bacon, onion though…. not too sure about that one.

  3. Liz Mays

    Apple, bacon and onion work so well together! You’ll love that one!

  4. Mimi B

    Well, we had grilled cheese sandwiches last week, and they sure didn’t look like this. lol I would want to try #2 first. It sounds delicious! I think I’ll jazz up ours next time instead of just slapping a slice of cheese onto the bread.

  5. Crystal

    I could be a little more creative myself. These are inspiring me!

  6. Meagan

    Oh my goodness!! I am pretty sure I just fell into grilled cheese heaven.. If that exist.. Surely it exist. Although, they all look amazing I would have to try the Gouda and Apple first. I remember being at a mommy conference in Orlando a few years back and this new up and coming company who sold pork sausage offered this amazing flavor called apple and Gouda. It was delish just as I am sure this grilled cheese is. I have decided I will be picking up apples after work today!

  7. Jennifer

    OMG, I’m in Heaven right now. Grilled cheese is my favorite, especially in the winter. I will make ALL of these.

  13. Jenna Wood

    Spinach, avocado, and cheese is one of my favorite grilled cheese combinations- though any of these would be good with a nice big bowl of war tomato soup!

  14. Theresa

    That sounds like a great combination! I have a new found love for avocado and must try that on my gc sandwich soon!

  15. paula schuck

    Chicken and pineapple sounds super interesting. I think my kids would LOVE that one. As for me bring on the avocado one. YUM! Pinning this for another time.
