Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for Many

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Little Old Me

I used to babysit a whole gaggle of kids and slow cooking sandwiches on the stove top just wasnt practical! This is a nice oven baked alternative. If you are really in a hurry, use the broiler! (For a full lunch, I would add two slices of turkey or ham to each sandwich)

Fantastic, shocking how a different cooking technique changed the texture and flavor of the sandwich. Crunchy out side/soft cheesey inside. For my DS's I went with american, and I always use 2 slices of cheese per sandwich, also added julienned sliced deli ham(by cutting the ham in strips I don't have to worry that they will take a bite and have a whole slice of ham slide out of the hot cheese and scald their chins-has happened too many times before). For my DH and I used 1 slice of american, julienned ham and a slice of Jarlsberg. Yummy. Served pickled green tomatoes and red tomatoes w/s&p on the side.
