    Sharon123's Note:

    Someday I'm going to stop eating dairy products. But today I stumbled across this recipe and couldn't stop myself from drooling. We all know that those little bits of melted cheese that ooze out and burn on the side are one of the best parts of a grilled cheese sandwich so why not take it one step further and purposely coat the the grilled cheese sandwich with cheese to caramelize on? Ooey gooey goodness. I'm just sayin'......from Closet Cooking.

    2. 2
      Completely butter one side of each slice of bread.

    4. 4
      Turn the heat down a notch and cook until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes.
    5. 5
      Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 2-4 minutes.

      First, I have to say that I have absolutely NO intention of giving up dairy! These are okay, but I can't honestly say that I like them better than ordinary grilled cheese. Then again, I never met a grilled cheese sandwich I didn't like. Thanks for posting!

      I was really worried about the cheese sticking, but it didn't! This is an AWESOME idea for a sandwich, and it was pretty good. Like Chocolatl, I can't say I like it better than a regular grilled cheese, but it was a nice change. Thanks!
