  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and turn oven to broil. Mix butter and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  2. Place 6 slices of bread onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle a portion of cheese over each slice. Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread. Brush tops with half the butter and sprinkle with half the oregano
  3. Broil sandwiches until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven, flip sandwiches, brush the other sides with remaining butter and sprinkle with oregano. Return to oven and broil until golden, about 3 minutes longer. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve with vodka sauce on the side for dipping.

pretty tasty alternative to a classic grilled cheese, a sophisticated version perhaps!

This was good. The cheese didn't melt before turning the sandwiches, so a bunch of it fell out. Other than that it was easy, and the dipping sauce was good.

I don't usually make sandwiches for dinner, but this sounded good. My family loved it, said it tasted like mozzarella sticks at a restaurant, only better! Not to mention it was quick and easy!

Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

I totally liked the idea except I burnt the bread trying to melt the cheese. I'm sure it would have came out better without the charcole taste... a little bland but I'll make it again i think.

My husband is pretty picky and he LOVED this recipe. We ate it for two consecutive nights!!

We all loved this and the homemade marinara pam suggested in the news letter. i couldnt find italian bread so i used sourdough.
