"I came up with this recipe for my niece. I combined grilled cheese sandwiches with garlic bread. Its tasty, its quick and its the perfect appetizer for friends, family and unexpected guests. Use a firm white bread for best results."

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!
Maybe my expectations were too high...but this was disappointing. Good, but not great.
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.
Really great QUICK QUICK recipe. I made the mistake of thinking that the stove would be faster for this, wish I had tried the broiler. Definitely doing that next time, or using the sandwich maker, which this is also good with....I'm beginning to think that these are the only grilled cheeses my boyfriend wants now. Be sure to use whole milk mozzarella for the best taste!!!
This is delicious.I only made 2 sandwiches because 6 was too much for little ole me. I also used wheat bread instead of white and it still tasted great!!!!
These were a nice change from ordinary grilled cheese and were almost as easy. I used softened margarine and mixed the garlic (I used 1/2 t) and oregano into it before spreading it onto the bread. I also just cooked them on my griddle. I thought this made them much easier than using a broiler as I tend to burn rather than broil.
My 8 year old loved these! Thanks for the new twist on grilled cheese! PS Make mine on the griddle instead of in the oven. I even added a little Parmesan cheese to mine and it was delish (:
This is the greatest grilled cheese ever! I made these with "Italian Wedding Soup I" (from this site) for dinner one night and my whole family asked for them the next day for lunch. They are amazing.
