I saw this sammy in Paula Deen's March/April magazine. My daughter and son-in-law give me the magazine each year for Mother's day, and I always look forward to when it shows up in my mailbox. I found several recipes to try in this issue, and this was the first one I made.
I cut down the recipe to just make a few sammy's, and it was really good. The basil and 3 types of cheeses really added a different twist on a classic grilled cheese!
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 c. shredded mozzarella
1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. freshly sliced basil
1/2 tsp. pepper
12 slices of bread
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 c. butter, softened
Combine the cream cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil and pepper. Spread on 6 slices of bread. Top with tomatoes, then the other 6 slices of bread. Spread butter on both slices of bread and cook 3 minutes each side until golden brown.
