Love grilled cheese sandwiches? Then this recipe is for you. Spread a mixture of butter and grated Parmesan cheese on slices of Italian bread, then top with high-quality provolone and mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 8 Italian bread slices
  • 4 (3/4-oz.) provolone cheese slices
  • 4 (3/4-oz.) mozzarella cheese slices

How to Make It

  1. Stir together butter and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.

  2. Spread 1 1/2 tsp. butter mixture on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 4 bread slices, buttered sides down, on wax paper. Top with provolone and mozzarella cheeses; top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides up.

  3. Cook sandwiches, in batches, on a hot griddle or in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, gently pressing with a spatula, 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
