I thought this was tasty, but a bit of work for a grilled cheese sandwich. I used Dave's Killer Bread (70 cal and 100% delicious). I could not find the raclette cheese (I bet that would have put it over the top!). I used Trader Joe's cheddar-gruyere but 3.5 oz did not equal one cup, more like 1/2 cup I grated enough for 1/4 cup per sandwich. I enjoyed these much more the day after!
