Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Anyone who needs a recipe to make a grilled cheese sandwich should probably not be in the kitchen in the first place. But cooks interested in more clever versions of the American classic could certainly learn a thing or two from Werlin, IACP winner for The New American Cheese and James Beard Award winner for All American Cheese and Wine. Stressing the sandwich's versatility, the author serves up everything from classic (and "almost-classic") grilled cheese sandwiches to quesadillas and sweet grilled cheese options. Spicy Double-Jack, for example, calls for red pepper flakes and sourdough, while Grilled Spinach and Goat Cheese Croissant uses the French pastry's plentiful butter to complement a cheesy filling. Even Buttery Figs and Blue Cheese and Rich Raspberry Brioche can be classified as grilled cheese sandwiches; the former incorporates crusty Italian bread and gorgonzola, and the latter uses goat cheese and egg bread. In order to make a "great" grilled cheese sandwich, Werlin explains, grate cheese (don't slice it), pile it on and let it ooze. Use salted butter, softened beforehand. And when it comes to bread, size does matter-thicker bread will outweigh the filling. For each recipe, Werlin provides instructions on making the sandwich in a skillet, in a sandwich maker or on a grill. 20 color photos.

This is my favorite of my 5 panini recipe books. I bought it when I got my Cuisinart Griddler with Panini Grill. These sandwiches are truly fantastic. Some of the other books have some really wierd combinations and only a few recipes that sound appetizing, but this book is a real winner. These hot sandwiches are very addicting...delicious and so fast and easy to make!

THE BEST GRILLED CHEESE BOOK EVER!!!!!
The recipes for these sandwiches have simple and short ingrediant lists for each sandwich, all can be found at the store!
Best Ever (in my point of view)

*Classic and easy Ruben, You will need a napkin!
*Summer Plums with Brie and Blue Cheese, Shock the In-Laws.
*California Grill, Jack cheese, salsa and avacado on sourdough, for when you are to tired to cook after work.
*My favorite "never fails to make my dieting sister hate me" sandwich is Roast beef with cheddar and Blue Cheese Butter!!
Highly recomended.

The recipes are imaginative, the directions are clear, the results are sublime. My only question is, I look at her photograph and ask, how can the author look so slender?!

Now that the weather is getting cooler, and with an abundance of tomatoes still available in the backyard, what's better than trying out Laura's melted cheese suggestions? Humm good. Sherry

Bought this for two reasons - an expanding cookbook collection and a daughter obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches. Not disappointed. I could never have imagine the variety of cheeses, breads and ideas - have tried some of the suggestions and have not been disappointed yet.

I went on a grilled cheesse binge a few months back and bought this product to faciliate my habit. I liked many of the recipes, but to be honest I found many of the same recipes on the internet. It's still a good book to add to your recipe book collection and does give some good advise on what sort of cheese to use if you are thinking of creating your own grilled cheese sandwich. Overall, not a bad purchase, but you can find a lot of this on the internet.

Come on, how can you NOT love a cookbook about grilled cheese. This one is great, a little something for everyone from the simple to the sublime. Bought our daughter one and she probably uses it more than we do. Pretty sure you'll like this book.
