I would never turn down a grilled cheese - just a regular old grilled cheese, but I will gladly take a loaded up grilled cheese sandwich like this one in a heartbeat. One sandwich contains FOUR slices of cheese for extra cheesiness. Plus there is chicken, bacon, and spinach too. It's great when you want a sandwich that is a little more filling. My big kids really loved it too. They like spinach, so they didn't shy away from theses sandwiches.

If you're looking for an alternate to a grilled cheese, this Heirloom BLT with Fried Egg and Smoked Gouda is a good alternate. The best, in fact. Another great sandwich is this Ultimate Kids' Grilled Cheese from Real Food By Dad - it has chicken strips and mozzarella sticks on it!
