A nice recipe for an alternative toasted sandwich. I also made a version with black (hatcho) miso, which turned out quite nice, but: not for the faint of heart, as it has a very strong taste! (And a liking for Marmite/Vegemite helps.)

This is a good grille cheese! Those of us who like miso love this, and those who doesn't didn't care for them much. I thought the melted cheddar blended nicely with the miso, but some thought it was a bit salty. personally, i like this alot and wouldn't change a thing. thank you
