Give Your Lunch a Sweet and Cheesy Spin

A grilled cheese is a simple yet delicious lunch — and there are so many spins that make it a fun midday bite. Give your next melty sandwich a sweet spin with a thick layer of jelly. It might not sound like it would work, but the combination of sharp Swiss cheese, salty ham, and tart raspberry jam is addictive.
