    A new twist on a classic grilled cheese sandwich! Enjoy with a nice bowl of tomato soup for comfort food on a cold day. Recipe courtesy Greg Morris for Food Network Magazine. I made a few adjustments using veggie bacon.

      Yum! I used your Smoky Tempeh Bacon recipe and a homemade Thousand Island. Snuck in a few lettuce leaves as this was our main dish accompanied by homemade applesauce! Good sandwich and will make again! Prepared for Veg Tag/November.
