Baked Grilled Cheese Sandwich

We usually modify recipes to our own likes, dietary tolerances, cooking skills 😉 , and budget. This is the ORIGINAL RECIPE I followed.

I made some notes at the top portion, but the full list of ingredients and instructions are at the bottom. We’re not food bloggers and I don’t always remember to take pics (you know, because the stove is on and things may burn while I’m taking the pics…not that I would know anything about that), but we thought it might be helpful to others out there who are cooking newbies or don’t love cooking (LIKE ME!) if we share some simple recipes we have tried and like that aren’t super difficult to make or with lots of unfamiliar ingredients. Seriously, if I can do it, you will most likely be able to as well. Note: The only dietary limitations we have are no cashews and limited/no shellfish for the kiddos, but if anyone wants us to try any GF, DF, SF, __F recipes, let us know.
