This recipe couldn't miss it had all of our favorite foods all put together and toasted or fried as some in my household like to call it. You see all I have to say is it's fried and they all {mostly} will hurry to the table to eat, but in this case everyone liked it, they asked for more and left nothing on their plate! I served them with a small bowl of cinnamon apple sauce on the side. As my Dad use to say "Don't you just love it when a plan comes together"! And isn't that what we do all the time," plan meals"? Thank you LAND O LAKES, you have taken all the work out of the planning! I just wish Dad was still around, he would have loved this one. I would give it a 10 if possible, but since 5 is the highest you can go we give it a 5.(by the way) if it had just been a plain toasted cheese, I would have served a soup of their choice. And I just have to add that none of your recipes could ever be called plain! As a person that has been inventing my own recipes since I was 16, I like the way your test kitchen puts things together that most of us might never have thought of. So can I at least give them a solid 10?

This is not your comfort food toasted cheese. Yes, we still need the time-honored ones our Mom's made served with tomato soup that just make us feel all warm inside; but this toasted cheese is an all-dressed up in pearls and a little black dress. Yum, if you like bacon, or avocado, or cheese run and try this one. You won't be sorry. And, use a rich hearty whole grain bread and it is just over the top!
