Two experiments:

1. In addition to muenster (my go-to sandwich cheese), I added a slice of processed American cheese.  In some video I can’t remember which, Chef Kenji recommends processed American cheese as a supplement to boost cheese gooeyness.  Worked but perhaps too well, making the cheese gooey beyond control.  The technique would be better applied to something like mac & cheese, where saucy consistency is a virtue.

2. In lieu of sun-dried tomato (see generally 2.345 Grilled Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich), I tried truffle paste.  Worked like a charm.  A new instant classic.
