Toasted Cheese Garlic Bread

    15 minutes

    In this recipe I combined toasted cheese sandwiches with garlic bread. It's tasty, it's quick and it's the perfect snack for friends, family and unexpected guests. Use a firm white bread for best results.

    These were absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I used a slice of provolone and cheddar for each sandwich and grilled these on my George Foreman. I made some garlic butter using 1/4 cup of butter, 1 tsp granulated garlic, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tbls parmesan cheese, dash of salt and pepper and 1 tsp oregano. I mixed this together and spread it over the sandwiches before I grilled them. They came out perfect! I will definitley be making these again. Thanks NYCDAVE for a very simple but tasty recipe.  -  23 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made these several times and the sandwiches are always a big hit with my brood! Just add soup or a salad and dinner is done! I take the easy way out and make on stovetop. I melt butter in a large skillet, and spinkle in garlic powder, onion powder and oregano. I then add 3 slices of bread, sprinkle cheese on each slice and add top slices of bread. After the bottom seared, I flip. Also, I use a mixture of whatever shredded cheeses I have on hand: Italian, swiss, mozzarella and/or parmesan. If you need more sandwiches than your skillet will hold, wipe out skillet and add another round of butter and seasonings; otherwise, second round will taste burnt. I omit the marinara as my boys said 'doesn't need it'. Next time I will try with olive oil instead of butter to reduce the 'bad' fat content. Thanks for a new twist on an old favorite!  -  07 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
