Tuscan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


  • 4 slices Italian or sourdough bread
  • 3 tablespoons Challenge Tuscan Style Spreadable Butter
  • 4 slices (about 4 ounces) mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup prepared fire roasted red bell peppers, drained and sliced into narrow strips*
  • Fresh basil leaves – (optional – use just a few to enhance without overpowering the sandwich)


  1. Spread Tuscan Style butter lightly on one side of each bread slice. On 2 slices arrange half of the cheese, then red bell peppers, basil and remaining cheese. Top with remaining bread slices. Spread Tuscan style butter on the tops of the sandwiches.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches butter side down in the skillet and spread additional Tuscan style butter on the uncoated side. Cook until sandwiches approximately 4 minutes per side or until golden brown and the cheese is melted.

Yield: 2 sandwiches

* Slices of fresh tomato may be substituted for red bell peppers.
