Grilled cheese meet your new best friend garlic bread:
Garlic Mozzarella Grilled Cheese
Originally from here.
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
12 slices white bread
1 24-oz jar vodka marinara sauce (optional)
Preheat your oven’s broilers.
Place 6 slices of bread onto a baking sheet. Spread a handful of mozzarella on each slice. Top with remaining 6 slices of bread.
Mix together butter and garlic powder. Brush over tops of sandwiches (or spread with back of tbsp). Sprinkle with dried oregano.
Place baking sheet under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven, flip sandwiches, and brush other side with butter mixture and oregano. Return to broiler and cook until golden – another 2 minutes or so.
Cut sandwiches and serve with sauce for dipping.
Well… fail. I may’ve come a little too close for comfort to setting something on fire. I haven’t used my oven’s broiler before and I guess it cooks particularly hot because after less than 2 minutes, I pulled out smoking charred sandwiched. Bleh.
Thankfully, I had more ingredients and cooked them on stove top instead – which is how I make regular grilled cheese anyway.
I also skipped the vodka marinara for dipping, opting for grilled cheese’s favorite tomato bisque soup instead.
Despite getting off to a bad start, the garlic bread sandwiches were really tasty. Definitely worth repeating – on the stove top again, I’m sticking away from the broiler for a bit.
