Do we really need a recipe for this? I have made this and variations using different cheeses( Gruyere for example) Try a variety of cheeses and herbs, with or without tomatoes or any vegetables.Use whatever you have,or try different breads. You really can't go wrong, unless you use plain white bread and yellow american cheese.

Sure, it's nice to have a recipe for this. A lot of folks out here have never made a grilled cheese with anything other than yellow American cheese on plain white bread, who believe that mozzarella is used only on pizza, and have never used basil for anything. Some never heard of gruyere.
