Comfort food at its finest...You have a loaf of that crusty Italian bread, that usually goes in a hurry, but today you have enough to carve yourself two nice inch thick slices! Wait, you have some cheese, in my case cheddar (the sharper the better I might add) What makes this grilled cheese so yummy? After all it sounds like every other normal grilled cheese that you can make. It's Flavored Butter. Yes, a parsley garlic butter! Oh my! I ate it so let me tell you 1) yes, it's delicious and 2) it's super easy.
What you will need
3 pats of salted butter
1 small clove garlic minced fine
1 TBSP fresh Italian Parsley chopped fine
Good crusty Italian or French Bread 2 Slices
2 Slices Sharp Cheddar or whatever you have in the fridge.
Soften the butter and mix ingredients. Spread on one side of the bread. Heat 10" skillet on medium ( not too hot or it will scorch) Place bread butter side down, add cheese, and top with other slice butter up. I know you know how to make a grilled cheese, but I want to cover my bases here. This is not a diet food. So, enjoy every buttery bite! ( I do have a vegan version below)
Sharp Cheddar/ Applewood Smoked Bacon/Granny Smith Apple
VEGAN: Soy Cheese/Grilled Portabello Sliced Thin/ RedOnion(Thin) Cooked in OVOO
Horseradish Cheese/Sliced Kielbasa
Mozzarella/Pepperoni/Sundried Tomato 1/2 tsp minced into butter
Butter Variations to Parsley Butter

Chili Butter- Add 1/4 tsp of chili powder with a dash of cayenne.

Mix and match your ingredients to suit your tastes!
