Experimenting with a lot of different grilled cheese flavor combinations over the years, many of them are listing at the bottom of this post, lead me to this Meaty Pizza Grilled Cheese.
If you are not a meaty pizza fan, try using your favorite pizza toppings. You can use whatever pizza toppings your family enjoys. Stuff this sandwich with as many toppings as you like. Do not worry about flipping it over.
Grilling This Grill Cheese
Instead of flipping your grilled cheese over, add a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise to both pieces of bread and place both slices of bread mayo side down on a griddle or in a skillet. You can use butter if you like but the mayonnaise helps to toast the bread evenly.
After placing the two slices of bread on the griddle or skillet, add your toppings on one side of the toast. Build your sandwich with your favorite pizza toppings on one piece of bread. Once the other piece of bread is nice and golden, place it on top of all the toppings. Next, add one tablespoon of water beside the sandwich and cover it with a lid. If using a griddle and you do not have a dome lid, you can turn an oven-safe pot upside down on top of the sandwich. The water with the lid will steam the grilled cheese and melt the cheese. You will get a gooey grilled cheese sandwich.

I Love The Ham & Apple Sandwich So Much At KRINGLA Bakery In Norway (Epcot). I Decided To Make It At Home. Kringle Bakery uses Apple Chutney for the sauce on their Ham & Apple Sandwich. I used Apple Butter with Petit Jean Smoked Ham, a variety of apples, and Muenster cheese. The flavors of this sandwich just scream fall. I love the contrast of the sweetness of the apple butter and apple with the gooey cheese and delicious smoked ham.
