  1. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  2. Place 6 slices of bread onto a baking sheet. Spread a small handful of the mozzarella cheese over each slice. Top with the remaining 6 slices of bread. Mix together the butter and garlic powder, brush some over the tops of the sandwiches, or spread with the back of a tablespoon. Sprinkle with dried oregano.
  3. Place baking sheet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Remove pan from oven, flip sandwiches, and brush the other sides with butter, and sprinkle with oregano. Return to the broiler, and cook until golden, about 2 minutes.
  4. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately with the pasta sauce on the side for dipping.

I made enough for two sandwiches. I did increase the garlic powder. I used deli sliced mozzerella instead of shredded because that was what I had on hand. Instead of serving this with pasta sauce, I made tomato soup to go with. The kids thought this was wonderful. I didn't have one myself but it smelled/looked amazing. I bet this would work with those frozen garlic toast slices, too.


Very easy to make! I would add more garlic next time. I will def make this again.


this was pretty good but needed a more flavorful cheese in the center besides just mozzarella. this was a wonderful way to make a whole bunch of sandwiches all at once and much faster than the skillet method on the stovetop. I sprinkled some parmesan cheese on the tops of side two after I turned them over. Great little sandwich and kind of like pizza. This would be very kid friendly.
