Recipe by Chef Sunshine

I came up with this recipe for my niece. I combined grilled cheese sandwiches with garlic bread. Its tasty, its quick and its the perfect appetizer for friends, family and unexpected guests. Use a firm white bread for best results.

These are good for a change of pace regular grilled cheese. I only made one for my lunch(luckily :) ) I could have ate more than one. I didn't dip it in the marinara sauce but thought they would be great with tomato soup too. I can't wait to make them again. Thanks Chef Sunshine!
