This recipe is perfect for a adults and kids alike.  Big and small, old and new, little and mini…er well you get what I’m trying to say, all people (at least in this house) love this grilled cheese sandwich!

Parmesan Crusted (baked) PIzza Grilled CheeseIt don’t get much better than this peep-OL.

By baking this grilled cheese in the oven you can make up to 10 sandwiches at a time!  And I should tell you that you can make this ahead of time, and reheat it in the oven and it’s just as good as the first time around!  So if you have a busy night make this earlier in the day and then as the fam rolls in you can reheat their Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese for them.  I know. It don’t get any better than this…am I right?! It tastes like pizza but it looks like grilled cheese, but my kiddos say it’s better than both!

So here is howy doey.

The key to the parmesan getting all crusty and scrumptious on the outside  is a hot oven, and preheating the top pan first.  So while you are assembling the sandwiches, place a baking sheet in the oven allowing it to get hot, then place it on top of the grilled cheeses,  give it a light press with your oven-mitted paws,  put this back in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes and zer ya go!

The best grilled cheese on the planet is ready and waiting!

I have never met a cheese that I didn’t like. I love cheese!  Cheese GLORIOUS Cheese…Oh how I love cheese, everything about it is exciting…..when I start to eat it I want MOOOORE! (This was sung to the tune of the well known song Cheese Glorious Cheese.  You can find this song…only in my head.)   More cheese please.
