  1. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  2. Place 6 slices of bread onto a baking sheet. Spread a small handful of the mozzarella cheese over each slice. Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread. Mix together the butter and garlic powder, brush some over the tops of the sandwiches, or spread with the back of a tablespoon. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
  3. Place baking sheet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove pan from oven, flip sandwiches, and brush the other sides with butter, and sprinkle with oregano. Return to the broiler, and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.
  4. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately with vodka sauce on the side for dipping.

Maybe my expectations were too high...but this was disappointing. Good, but not great.

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 brea...

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 a...

Great twist on grilled cheese, just like garlic bread with cheese in a sandwich form. I dipped em' in "pizza soup II" (from this site) and that worked great for me. Thanks NYC Dave!
