Ready In:
1 sandwich


  • 2 slices cinnamon-swirl raisin bread
  • 2 -3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature


  • Spread 1 slice of the bread with the cream cheese. Top with the other bread slice. Spread the top of the sandwich with half of the butter. Heat a skillet over medium heat or preheat a griddle to medium.
  • Place the sandwich, buttered-side down, on the hot surface and grill until nicely browned, 1-1 1/2 minutes. While the first side is browning, spread the top of the sandwich with butter. Flip the sandwich and brown the other side, about 1 minute longer. Cut in half and eat while it's hot!

  1. Add chopped walnuts with the cream cheese for an extra flair. :)


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
