Ingredients

  • ½ c. cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
  • 1 tsp. olive or canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1/16 tsp. pepper (if you like pepper, go ahead and add 1/8 tsp.)
  • ¼ c. Parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz. Kraft Natural Mozzarella shredded cheese (2 cups)
  • 10 to 14 slices of bread (depends on how big your bread is)
  • butter softened (about 2 tbsp)

Instructions

  • If using large curd cottage cheese, blend until mostly smooth.
  • Combine cottage or ricotta cheese with olive oil.
  • Add garlic, basil, oregano, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese; mix well.
  • Add Mozzarella cheese and combine thoroughly.*
  • Lightly butter each slice of bread.  Place half of the slices, buttered side down in a skillet or griddle.
  • Divide cheese mixture evenly between the slices in the skillet.**  Top with remaining slices of bread, making sure to leave the buttered side up.
  • Cook over medium heat until bread is lightly browned.  Flip, and cook remaining side until lightly brown and cheese is melted.

Notes

* If you have time, for a fuller flavor, mix up the cheese part several hours ahead of time.
** You want the cheese mixture to nicely cover the surface of the bread, but don't pile it too high, because you'll end up having a hard time keeping the sandwiches together once the cheese melts.
