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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together butter and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.

Step 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.

Step 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.

I eat a grilled cheese sandwich about 3 times a week and consider myself a big fan but I am not a fan of Parmesan cheese; so I was a bit skeptical about adding it to the butter. The Parmesan was not overwhelming and it added a nice flavor and enhanced the texture to the outside of the sandwich. The only thing that I did differently is that I lightly browned the inside slices of the bread before assembling. I like my bread toasted on both sides. I'll be making this again and sharing with the family. Next time, I may spread some of the butter mixture on the inside bread slices to see what that does!

This is a great recipe, Loved how the bread came out. I served this with tomato soup and it was a great match.

This was so easy to put together with pretty simple ingredients. My kids loved them, and so did me and the hubby. The bread is definitely the big winner, along with that butter-mixed-with parmesan. The cheese is just the "icing" on the cake. A big keeper!
