Grilled Four Cheese Sandwiches

I tried this sandwich recipe a few years ago, around the time Tahlia was born. And since then, Hubby always request them for dinner. He so easy. Serve him a grilled cheese sandwich and he's happy! I definitely recommend this for a quick and easy, weeknight dinner. Serve them with your favorite canned soup and you have yourself some great comfort food, without the work!Recipe courtesy of Rachel Ray


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, cracked away from skin
  • 8 slices crusty Italian semolina bread
  • 1 cup shredded provolone
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago
  • * All of these cheeses are available in specialty cheese case and dairy aisle already shredded


In a small skillet over medium low heat, combine oil, butter and garlic. Cook garlic in butter and oil gently for 2 or 3 minutes. Remove garlic butter mixture from heat.

Place a large nonstick skillet on the stove over medium high heat. Using a pastry brush, brush 1 side of 4 slices of bread with garlic oil and place buttered side down in skillet. Top each slice with equal amounts of the 4 cheeses, distributing them equally over the 4 slices. Top each sandwich with another slice of bread brushed with garlic butter, buttered side up. Flip the grill cheese sandwiches a few times until cheeses are melted and gooey and bread is toasty and golden. Cut grilled 4 cheese sandwiches from corner to corner and serve.
