  • 8 slices Dempster’s® 100% Whole Grains 12 Grain Bread
  • 1 1/3 cups (325 mL) shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) garlic butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/3 cups (325 mL) marinara sauce, heated


  1. Sprinkle cheese evenly over 4 slices of bread; cap with remaining bread. Combine garlic butter with Italian seasoning; spread over the outside of sandwiches.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Cook sandwiches, in batches if needed, for 2 to 3 minutes per side, pressing lightly, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  3. Cut sandwiches into quarters; serve with the marinara sauce for dipping.

Substitute cheddar or marble cheese for the Italian cheese blend if desired.
Add a slice of ham or turkey to the sandwich if desired.
