Garlic Grilled-Cheese Sandwich

Well, I was taken by surprise today when I discovered a delicious “new” sandwich. For all the years I have been making grilled cheese sandwiches, it never occurred to me to add some flavor excitement to the bread.

Recipe of the Week: Garlic Grilled-Cheese Sandwich

butter and garlic powder (or garlic spread)
Italian seasoning
two slices of sourdough or rye bread (or any bread of your choice)
two slices of cheese (American, provolone, or cheddar)
slice of ham (optional)

Directions: On one side of each slice of bread spread butter and sprinkle with garlic and Italian seasoning. (Or used already mixed garlic spread.) Add cheese slices (and ham, if preferred) and grill. Oh my gosh, this is so yummy and it isn’t even sweet! 🙂 Serve with chips and dill spear. In winter, serve with tomato-basil soup*. Hurry up, winter!

*For tomato-basil soup: one can of tomato soup, 1/2 c. milk, 1/4 c. shredded cheese, and 1 tsp. dry basil. Heat and stir in pan but do not boil.

Thought of the Week: With five grandchildren (ages 1-12) nearby, I am almost in grandma heaven. Of course, the younger ones delight me the most, but the older ones constantly surprise me with their intelligence, creativity, and conversations. I love watching them  interact with each other. The “almost” above is because three grandsons (2, 2, 7) now live far away in California.
