    C. Taylor's Note:

    These have become a quick dinner staple. They are sooo good, and comes together in minutes. You can change the type of cheese, but I've found that something with a stronger flavor that melts well, is best. The type of bread I use is called Saloio and is similar to Ciabbata (Saloio is a portuguese bread readily available at our supermarket bakery).

      I love this! It's so simple but packs in a lot of flavor. I had some spinach laying around in the fridge so added them to these sandwiches. Yum!
