Italian Grilled Cheese

April 12, 2012

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, here’s an oldie-but-goodie favorite.  Like any grilled cheese, there’s really no way to go wrong.  A little Parmesan or Asiago would be a great addition, along with a little roasted garlic.

  • Crusty Italian Bread
  • Ripe Tomatoes
  • Provolone
  • Mozzarella
  • Fresh Basil
  • Olive Oil

Slice the tomatoes and cheeses.

Heat the griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Brush a slice of bread with olive oil and place it oil side down on the griddle.

Pile on a slice of provolone, a couple of tomato slices and a few basil leaves.

Add the mozzarella.

Add the second piece of bread and brush the top with a little more olive oil.  Smash it down with a spatula and let it cook over medium to medium-low heat until the bread is lightly browned and the cheese is all gooey.

Serve it up hot and enjoy!
