Breakfast Anytime w/ hand-crafted #GriddleMelts from @IHOP

Spinach, Roasted Pepper, and Cheese #GriddleMelts from IHOP
I kept seeing these commercials from IHOP about their new sandwiches called Griddle Melts.  And every single time I saw them, I was tempted.  I wanted one of those sandwiches in my hand.  I guess that means the marketing department is doing something right.  So yes, this was going on for a week or two before I received an email asking me if I'd be interested in trying "a new menu item" at IHOP called a Griddle Melt.

It was fate.  I was meant to try one of those sammies that kept running through my mind. And across my television screen.

I knew immediately that the Griddle Melt with spinach, roasted red peppers, and a blend of three cheeses would be beckoning me from my plate.  That combo in particular had my cheeks tingling in anticipation!
Western #GriddleMelts from IHOP
The family and I headed out on a mission to have breakfast-for-dinner last night at IHOP.  I ordered my Spinach, Roasted Pepper, and Cheese Griddle Melt.  My hubby ordered the Western Griddle Melt.  The kids ordered everything from Create-a-Face Pancakes to bacon to eggs to Bacon Cheeseburgers and fries.

My sandwich was everything I'd hoped for. Thick, grilled sourdough surrounding a rolled omelet.  It was delicious, but also- it was filling!  I ordered a full sandwich, but I'm thinking a half (plus the hash browns I chose for my side) could have easily satisfied me.  I tried a bite of the Western Griddle Melt as well - if you like a western omelet, you'll like this.  I did.

So, whether you're in the mood for a hearty, sustaining breakfast or breakfast-for-dinner, these Griddle Melts will fill that need.  There something for (almost) anybody with the three different options.  Spinach, Roasted Pepper, and cheese contains sauteed spinach inside the rolled omelet with roasted red peppers and onions, plus melted Provolone, Parmesan, and Pepper Jack cheeses.  The Western is classic smoked ham with sauteed green bell peppers, onions, and American cheese.  Ham & Egg is ham (of course) with melted Swiss and American cheeses.  All are served on thick sourdough with fries, hash browns, or fruit.

Also, you can order either a half or a whole sandwich depending on just how hungry you are.    So, whatcha think?  Are you hungry, but don't feel like cooking... or perhaps you don't want to dirty any dishes?  I know I'm not the only one who likes it when others cook for me sometimes!  Keep IHOP's new hearty, satisfying, hand-crafted Griddle Melts in mind.
