What's not to love about a grilled cheese filled with pepperoni! My husband had one of those moments where he bit into his sandwich and looked up at me totally speechless. I try to cook amazing meals on a daily basis (insert sarcastic voice), but I can count on one hand the number of speechless faces that I have had from my husband. Needless to say we are going to make these sandwiches again in the near future. Which is fine by me since they took no time to put together.
Recipe from Blog Chef
8 slices of bread
¼ cup butter (softened)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 package sliced pepperoni
8 slices mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Mix the butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning together. Spread it on one side of the bread.
2. Heat the pepperoni a little in the microwave or a pan before putting it on the bread. Place a piece of bread face down on a skillet that has been pre-heated on medium heat. Then put the cheese and pepperoni down on the bread in the pan. Cover that with another piece of bread that has the butter top side up.
3. Cook until browned and then flip the sandwich to the other side. Serve with pizza sauce or tomato soup on the side.
You can see from this picture that I don't follow directions very well. I bought mini-pepperoni and the Italian shredded cheese that contains mozzarella mixed with Parmesan cheese. I don't think that these shopping mistakes changed the flavor that much though. The loveliest part about this sandwich is the butter mixture that gets all crispy when you toast it. Yum!
