Grilled Cheese, Pickle and Vidalia Onion Sandwich

Recipe by  

"I came up with this recipe because I always enjoy pickles on the side with my basic grilled cheese sandwich. So one day I decided just to put my pickles on the sandwich in addition to some other favorite ingredients. I think it turned out really delicious!"

Thanks for the *push* I needed to step out of my childhood grilled cheese w/White American and yellow mustard standby. I didn't have any cheddar, so I did use provolone and white American and I also added ham for some protein, but it would have been fantastic w/out the ham (and w/whatever cheese you prefer) as well! I liked this so much, I may just have one for lunch today, too...

Interesting sandwich. The first bite was a bit odd to me but after that it was pretty good! Made exactly as directed. Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely something I would not have thought of. I might make this again for my husband to try as he LOVES pickles.

I used regular yellow onion, sauteed a little bit first, and very thin slices of cheddar and mozzarella. I also just used cooking spray instead of butter and this sandwich was excellent. What a good idea.

This was sooooo good! I had white cheddar and american, so I just combined both. Also, I used white bread. This was really tasty and we all enjoyed the combination of flavors. I will be making these again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Wow, this was great! Admittedly, I made a few changes to combine it with my other favorite grilled cheese sandwich. I used American cheese instead of Cheddar because I had it in the house...I also spread a little whipped cream cheese on one side and sprinkled the insides with italian seasoning. So good...I would never have thought of this combo, but it was delicious!

I used swiss cheese and zesty sandwich stackers with the Vidalia onion. I also used a light spreading of mayo on both sides of the sandwich. Quick sandwich for a mom on the go!

My Vegetarian wife and son love this vaiation of the (plain, old) grilled cheese sandwich! Thanks for the recipe, Lainey!!! I had a jar of carmelized onions from our last canning season that I used for these. Made for a delicious "swwt and sour" effect!
