Grilled Cheese, Pickle and Vidalia Onion Sandwich

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Lainey39

I always have pickles on the side with my basic grilled cheese sandwich so I thought they'd taste good right in the sandwich itself. I also thought sweet Vidalia Onions would taste great with it as well. I hope you like it.

I used bread and butter pickles in mine. And I added 2 slices of maple ham. It was delicious. I grilled it on my panini pan. Thanks Lainey. Made for Holiday tag
