Grilled Cheese Pizza Sandwich
Very Good 4.3/5
(382 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Has potential.. Forgot to add Italian seasoning as suggested and should have cooked at a lower temp so the outside would take longer to brown and give the cheese more of a chance to melt. Lots of potential and can always change it up with the "toppings"!

Cookbook creator says: Sounds like a weird combo but is DELISH! Works great for tailgating. Note that the nutritional info is for SIX SERVINGS!!! That's a lot of dip for around 200 calories! Serve with Baked Tostitos and enjoy!

Jeff's Ultimate Turkey Burger Recipe
Very Good 4.5/5

Cookbook creator says: Easy to make, second round I didn't measure, just a little of this and a little of that. Went well with whole wheat bun, lite mayo (miracle whip.. i don't usually do this on burgers, but I like it with the turkey burger) and the usual burger toppings! Great with baked fries!
