Good Gracious Grilled Cheese

I need to share this recipe before everyone puts their grills away for the cooler weather.  This was AWESOME.  I got this idea from a magazine several months back.  I can't for the life of me remember which one.  I kept saving the ripped out page and then finally "got rid" of it before I ever got around to making this.  It was such a simple concept that I didn't need a recipe, I remembered the basic idea of the dish and then improvised.  Basically I guessed on the grill time, substituted whole wheat baguette because I prefer the flavor and added the garlic rub trick that I learned from one of my co-workers back in VA. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to give this a try.  This is the most perfect appetizer.  Simple yet elegant, quick yet gourmet, small yet satisfying!  This recipe gives whole new meaning to the idea of "grilled cheese".  Make sure you try it soon!
