The Ultimate Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I think this is one of the biggest and best sandwiches I have created. I have put this recipe together for the Grilled Cheese Academy.   The outside of this sandwich is butter and Wisconsin Parmesan cheese.  The inside is garlic bread, Wisconsin Parmesan, meatballs, Wisconsin Mozzerella cheese topped with another great piece of garlic bread that has been buttered and loaded with more Parmesan cheese. This is The Ultimate Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwich!  Manga!


1 loaf of your favorite crusty bread, uncut,  I used sourdough (it’s my favorite)

1 jar of garlic spread, I used Lawry’s (found where the spices are located)


Parmesan cheese, grated

Meatballs, make you own or store bought

Marinara sauce

Mozzerella slices, I used Sargento, Wisconsin made


Prepare garlic bread. 

Slice bread in thick slices. Spread Lawry’s Garlic Spread over bread. Sprinkle with paprika, cover with Parmesan cheese. Place on a baking sheet and broil until cheese is melted. Set aside.

Prepare meatballs. Toss meatballs in your marina sauce and heat until hot.

Sandwich Assembly:

Place at least 2 slices of Mozzerella on top of the garlic bread. Next, place meatballs.  It’s up to you if you wish to slice them. Place more Mozzerella on top of the meatballs. Cover with garlic bread. Now butter the outside of the bread and cover with more Mozzerella and place on griddle or pan to grill. Grill bread over medium heat until it is golden brown.  Carefully flip your  sandwich and grill till golden brown. Manga, manga!  Enjoy!
