I looked and didn't find a dedicated thread.

I'm wanting to bookmark these "grilled cheese" sandwiches. We may try the Brussels sprouts one today.

This looks good if we make our own pesto (which never happens):

I made great sandwiches for the teacher luncheon last year.  You could use cheese of some kind, rather than the turkey, and fake bacon crumbles, but the bacon flavor is key.  Actually, smoked gouda would give you the smokey, saltiness of the bacon. 

Turkey, bacon, avocado wraps. I used a flat bread, like Lavash or such, put down some washed and dried green leaf and red leaf lettuce leaves, a slice or two of the turkey, some avocado slices, some Hormel Applewood smoked bacon crumbles, and a drizzle of a mayo I doctored up with garlic, lime, and cilantro.  Rolled it all up.  Yum!  You could put some tomato in there too.  I was trying to make something that would not get soggy.  The lettuce leaves help keep the bread from getting soggy, as long as they are dry.

No. 15 on that list is one of my all-time favorites.  I usually use a good baguette, or Italian, or ciabatta, and I may use raspberries, strawberries or no berries.  And for the chocolate, I use guittard. It is the best breakfast!

I just made avocado egg salad sandwiches for lunch. The avocado is used instead of mayo. I used chives from our garden, Penzey's 4/S, pepper, and not as much mustard as folks might use (DS and I aren't fond of it that way). But the avocado added a nice flavor.

So we had the Brussels sprouts grilled cheese in that link in the first post. It was pretty good, but next time I would spread a little habanero honey mustard on the bread first.

I roasted the Brussels sprouts and did not use sage, as I am allergic to it. I used Muenster instead of fontina.

I'll say that in our family, we often do open-faced sandwiches with sautéed  finely chopped veggies, often on top of a schmear of honey mustard or Dijon, topped with some shredded cheese and broiled. And this was like that.

This is a so good a place to stick this as any.  DD has the HS swim team banquet on Thursday and we need to bring a main dish, but didn't want to do a pasta dish so I'm thinking I will do a large tray of these.

Hezz - those are good, I did something very similar for DS's first birthday party.  I used Hawaiian rolls (don't remember what brand) and used dried minced onion instead of the onion powder.
