    love4culinary's Note:

    This is a wonderful sandwich!! I was making myself a grilled cheese sandwich about a week ago, and decided to get a little creative with it. It came out spectacular. This is a nice change from your average grilled cheese :-) AND DONT BE AFRAID TO TRY IT! Even if you dont like spinach, try the sandwich.. its great!!!

      Yummy! I also put mine in the oven just for health's sake. Oh, and I added some fresh basil and spicy mustard. Very tasty lunch!

      I have often made another recipe that combines chopped spinach with shredded cheese for grilled cheese. It is one of my favorites. Sauteing the spinach with garlic is even better. I skipped cooking the tomatoes before adding them to the sandwich and probably used double the amount of baby spinach. On multi-grain bread, this was fabulous.

      Yum! I followed the recipe with only minor changes: I used vegetarian Old Style Cheddar, eight spinach leaves - next time I'll use more - four small slices of vine-ripened tomatoes, and added cracked black pepper. Instead of buttering the bread I melted some butter in the pan, dropped both bread slices in, topped one slice with the filling, then placed the other slice on top. Will make again!
