Italian Cheese Bites

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 6 mins
Yield Makes 8 appetizer servings
We visited our supermarket bakery for a presliced Italian bread loaf.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 16 Italian bread slices
  • 16 provolone cheese slices
  • Marinara sauce

How to Make It

  1. Stir together butter and Parmesan cheese; spread on 1 side of each bread slice. Place 8 bread slices, buttered sides down, on wax paper.

  2. Layer 8 bread slices on wax paper each with 2 provolone cheese slices, and 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, 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cheese melts. Cut each sandwich into fourths, and serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
