Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich

"This recipe comes from Canadian House and Home. It is soooo good. It's baked so it's easy to make more than 1 at a time. The cheese oozes out of the sandwiches while baking and becomes a crunchy crust around the bread. Use a really good bread and slice it extra thick. You can use commercial mango chutney or try this home-made version: recipe#368738"

    Simply fantastic! I used Sharwood's Mango Chutney and sourdough bread. The cheddar cheese was Irish Kerrygold. I'm in Grilled Cheese Heaven! The combo of chutney and cheese is an inspired combo.

    Ooey gooey sharp cheddar with sweet mango chutney and crispy toasted bread makes for a terrific sandwich which I much enjoyed. Thank you Dreamer in Ontario for posting and to weekend cooker for the recommendation, made for I Recommend tag game.

    I thought this was a wonderful addition to grilled cheese, even though I had to find out the hard way that I'm allergic to mangoes. So no more mangoes for me. Next time, I'm going to try this with a peach chutney. Made for Ramadan tag.

    I made the mango chutney to go with this sandwich. I bought Artisans bread and sliced it and put old cheddar from Boars Head and a slice of white cheddar from Boars Head. It was real easy to put in the oven and not have to worry about all the insides coming out of the sides by the traditional way of grilling it. I found it very flavorful. My friend said he didn't really taste the mango though. (I think his tastes buds were on the bonkers that day for lunch) because I really tasted my mango chutney. The combination was really a tasty treat from the ordinary. Thanks for the recipe Dreamer.
