Sweet 'n' Hot Creamy Grilled Cheese

Did you know that today is National Grilled Cheese Day? Funny.....I wonder who comes up with such a day!? I actually didn't know about it until yesterday afternoon, when I checked my email and saw that a local sandwich shop is offering free grilled cheese sandwiches today....! If it weren't for the long lines and ungodly wait time, I just might consider taking advantage of such a fun offer! But, instead, I think I'll make myself one of these.....

Yes, that really is ooey gooey cheesy goodness spilling out of the sandwich....just perfect, if you ask me! I was excited to have a chance to use this sweet 'n' hot pepper and onion relish I bought a while ago......have you tried it? I first fell in love with it when it was given to me as part of a gift basket from a friend. Mixed with cream cheese, it is a delicious dip for crackers or pretzels.....and mixed with cream cheese and provolone cheese, it is a delicious filling for this sandwich!

The flavor of the relish is a balance between sweet and savory, with a bit of tanginess and a bit of spice. When it's mixed with cream cheese, it becomes a more mild, creamy version of that. it's hard to describe....but if you like a touch of sweetness in your savory, you will love this sandwich! It's great for a meal, an appetizer (cut in pieces), or an after-school snack....and the sweet & spicy combo is just tantalizing enough to keep you wanting more!

.....As if I need another excuse to eat more cheese.....!
