The Ultimate Grilled Cheese

Serves: 5

These gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, subtly seasoned with garlic, taste great with sliced apples. And they're really fast to whip up, too. I like to add a couple of slices of crispy bacon to the sandwich.

Dovetailing Tip: Heat the bacon strips you cooked during Meal 1 in the microwave or toaster oven while making the spread. Assemble the sandwiches, adding 2 strips of bacon to each.

Total Time:


3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
10 slices italian bread (1/2 inch thick)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
10 slices cooked bacon strips (optional)


In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the cheeses, garlic powder and seasoned salt. Spread five slices of bread with the cheese mixture, about 1/3 cup on each. Top with remaining bread. Butter the outsides of sandwiches. In a skillet over medium heat, toast sandwiches for 4-5 minutes on each side or until bread is lightly browned and cheese is melted. Yield: 5 servings.
