Haha! Oh well... it'd probably work the same with any veggie that goes well with cheese, though I can't think of any at the moment! :P

I found the picture on a website for someone who did TINY knitting (using #23-25 needles!!!). She found the tiny car seat on ebay I think. I have a slight obsession with both car seats and miniatures so...

Re: this is kinda stupid, but...

Mayo on the outside of the bread is the best! So much crispier (and less greasy) than butter. My stepdad, who used to be a short order cook, taught me that trick.

As for our favorite version of the grilled cheese, we stole the idea from the French Meadow bakery in Minneapolis. Here's the deal...

Take two slices of a nice, bakery-style bread (something crusty but without too many holes..otherwise the sandwich will leak) and spread lightly with mayo (or butter) on the outside surfaces of each. Spread a good dijon mustard on the inside of the bread. Top one slice with Swiss cheese, top the other slice with Muenster. Add thinly sliced tomatoes and strips of roasted red peppers (the ones from a jar are fine, just make sure to pat them dry first). Slap the two halves together and toast the sandwich over medium-low until quite brown. You don't want to cook this one too fast or the cheese won't melt into the veggies.

Seriously delish! You can substitute different cheeses here, but the Swiss/Muenster combo is the shizz.

When I'm feeling lazy, I just jam a few slices of cheese and tomato between whatever bread we have laying around. And then I dip the sammie in Thousand Island dressing.

Re: this is kinda stupid, but...

My kids love grilled cheese sandwiches, and while we have tried some of things metioned already, our favorites are the ones i grill on the george foreman grill. Makes great grill lines that the kids like, and makes it easier for me to cut!
For my son's favorite we use whatever bread in on hand, usually crusty italian, butter the sides we will put on the grill, spread the inside with a little pizza sauce, add mozzarella and parmesean cheese and maybe a few slices of pepporoni or ham, put it on the grill and it is done in 3 minutes! Both my girls are fond of tomatoes on theirs, or sundried tomato mayo instead of butter.

Re: this is kinda stupid, but...

sometimes i sprinkle a little garlic salt on my buttered bread, and a little italian herb blend on my cheese. mmm.

i use mayo instead of butter sometimes, too. it makes the bread beautiful!
