Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese

Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese

Background and History:

Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese is a fusion of two beloved classics: garlic bread and grilled cheese sandwiches. Garlic bread itself has roots in Italian cuisine, where it’s often served as a side dish or appetizer. Grilled cheese, on the other hand, has been a comfort food staple in America for over a century. The ingenious idea to combine these two favorites is a testament to the culinary creativity of food enthusiasts worldwide.


  • 4 slices of hearty bread (sourdough, Italian, or French bread work great)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of your favorite cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss, or a blend)
  • Optional add-ins: crispy bacon, sliced tomatoes, caramelized onions, or sautéed mushrooms


  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes until fragrant. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat.
  • Brush one side of each bread slice with the garlic butter mixture.
  • Place a slice of bread, buttered side down, on the skillet. Add a generous amount of cheese and any desired add-ins.
  • Top with another slice of bread, buttered side up.
  • Cook until the bottom bread slice is golden brown and the cheese starts to melt, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Carefully flip the sandwich and cook the other side until it’s equally golden and the cheese is fully melted.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool for a minute before slicing.
  • Serve hot, and enjoy your gooey, garlicky masterpiece!
