Grilled Cheese. Recipe, Sandwich
The high temperature for the day was in the 100’s outside today. When it gets this warm, I have a hard time getting motivated to turn on my oven to make dinner. That is why I love these Hawaiian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. They are so simple to make and they are loaded with flavor.
I know you are wondering what is so special about another grilled cheese sandwich. Trust me, the ham, pineapple, and butter herb spread take this sandwich from average everyday to mouth-watering delicious!
In my husbands words “this sandwich is a keeper”, and he doesn’t say that lightly.
To make this sandwich on a Panini press on in a skillet. I love my Panini press and you can read all about why I love it so much here. My husband recently bought me a Bella Panini press. We use it all the time. Not only is it easy to use it is light on the pocketbook too. You can purchase the Panini press like the one I have on Amazon. I link to Amazon below.
