"This sandwich recipe has been passed down in my family for years and I even sold my husband on it and it's now his favorite. It's your average grilled cheese but with brown sugar added."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Ok, I have to admit that I showed this recipe to my husband so we could make fun of it. Little did I know he'd be intrigued! He made it for lunch today and really enjoyed it. I tasted it, and it wasn't bad although I did stick with a plain ol' grilled cheese for me. Only change he made was to use a medium sharp cheddar instead of american cheese. Thanks for the recipe, and sorry I doubted you!
I was intrigued by this recipe. I thought that I would make it for my son and myself for lunch. It wasn't bad, at all. Just very different. I made one with American cheese and one with cheddar. I think I liked the chddar better. My 3 yr old ate the american and said "I don't like sugar in my grilled cheese." I don't think I'll be making this again. Sorry.
I just had to make this as soon as I read it because it sounded so interesting and it's easy to make. I was pleasantly surprised! I accidentally burned it and it still tasted good!
I liked this recipe. I guess I must have a well developed sweet tooth, because I almost wanted to put more brown sugar on this sandwich! The brown sugar melts into a yummy syrup in between the cheese slices. I'll probably make this again :)
I had one of these sweet grilled cheeses 35 years ago at a friends house for lunch one day and loved it.
I still eat them this way once in awhile. Worth trying people!
This was good but I only used half of the brown sugar that the recipe called for, muenster and cheddar cheeses, with medium salsa as a dipping sauce for the sandwich so I'd have sweet and spicy.
It definitely was different than a regular grilled cheese. The sweetness was a little strong so I would suggest to others to put less brown sugar than the recipe calls for. Otherwise I really liked this and will use again.
I discovered many years ago (quite by accident) that cheese and sugar can work well together, but I'd never have thought of making it into a sandwich. It's a good change of pace from the normal stuff, and you can use dark or light brown sugar.
