  1. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  2. Place 6 slices of bread onto a baking sheet. Spread a small handful of the mozzarella cheese over each slice. Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread. Mix together the butter and garlic powder, brush some over the tops of the sandwiches, or spread with the back of a tablespoon. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
  3. Place baking sheet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove pan from oven, flip sandwiches, and brush the other sides with butter, and sprinkle with oregano. Return to the broiler, and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.
  4. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately with the pasta sauce on the side for dipping.

Great twist on boring old grilled cheese. So simple, so good! Thank you.

Great change of pace! Mixed the garlic powder & oregano into the butter and used thin slices of buffalo mozzarella. I cooked on a cookie sheet but not under the broiler, in the oven on 400*

very tasty! Was a nice change to the traditional grilled cheese, I used sourgough bread and it worked lovely! Thanks for posting this recipe!!!

Great grilled cheese! Went perfect with the pasta dish I served it with. I only made one just for me!

This is a great twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. I personally loved the tip on putting them on a cookie sheet to do more at a time. phew...time saver.

These are absolutely delicious! I added pepperoni slices to them and they were even better!
