Bruschetta Grilled Cheese

I was surprised to find out that not all Americans put garlic salt on their grilled cheese sandwiches.  This comfort food ingredient has been a staple in my family as long as I can remember.  While invading my (spill-everything-to) friend Elaina's refrigerator, I found everything I needed to make us some yummy sandwiches:
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter thrown in a medium-hot pan is much easier to work with than trying to spread it on bread. Grill one side of each piece of bread (I like Nature's Own- no high fructose corn syrup or bleached flour).
  • Spread about 2 tablespoons bruschetta (in a jar is nice) on each grilled side of bread and top with mozzarella cheese. 
  • Assemble the sandwich and grill the outside in butter.
  • Don't forget to add the dash of garlic salt to each side.
If you're like me, you'll literally say "mmmm" after each bite.

Love it! And saying "mmmm" after each bite is definitely a necessity to make the recipe complete. :)

Garlic salt is definitely the secret ingredient to an above-average grilled cheese sandwich! Do you have any idea where we learned that trick? Think that's something Mom or Dad passed along to us or did we just make it up?

(Oh, and I can't wait for you to blog about ramen noodles.... :))
