I liked the flavor- nice for something a little different. I had this with spicy tomato soup (Ginger's "Dorito" Soup ) for a quick & easy lunch.

I made this tonight to go along with some chicken noodle soup. It really hit the spot. I only used 1 tsp. of the salt, It was really tasty. Thank you for a easy, delish sandwich!

Made this tonight with American and Swiss Cheese. Based on other reviews, I sprinkled only the tinest amount of seasoning salt on each side of the sandwiches. Unfortunately, they were still way too salty for us (and I'm a salt person). I think this would work for me if I could get the seasoning without the sauce! Thanks for posting a different way to have grilled cheese. Maybe next time I'll try even less.
