    ReeLani's Note:

    A tasty sounding twist on the grilled cheese sandwich. This was in today's (2/15/05) Detroit Free Press food section and I plan to try it very soon.

      These sandwiches were wonderful. I was pleasantly surprised. Don't judge the recipe by the pictures, they really are so good. My grocery store did not have any ciabatta bread, so I used french hamburger buns which looked like a similar texture to me. I sprinkled swiss cheese on them instead of mozzarella. The goat cheese was a little strong flavored for me, so next time I will use less than called for. It tastes like a stinky cream cheese, but it's still good. Loved these!
