What do you get when you smash together two delicious cheesy dishes? A classic grilled cheese with the comfort of leftover lasagna? You end up with one delicious sandwich, Lasagna Grilled Cheese! It’s the ultimate grilled cheese and I’m excited to share it with you guys.

We wanted the flavor of garlic bread to go into this grilled cheese because it just made sense. So the first step is to make a really simple garlic butter to spread on the bread before we cook the sandwiches.

Sprinkle two slices of bread with lots of mozzarella cheese. I know lasagna already has cheese in it, but I don’t think there’s ever such a thing as too much cheese. Then cut a piece of your leftover lasagna from the night before, and slap it on top of one of the slices.

Sandwich them all together and repeat with the rest of the sandwiches, placing them onto a platter or baking sheet to have them ready to griddle.

Spread both sides of the grilled cheese with a generous amount of the garlic butter we made earlier. I like to spread the top piece, lay it on the skillet face down and then spread the other side.

Cook in a hot skillet (in batches) for a few minutes on each side or until golden brown and crusty, and the cheese has melted.

About The Chic

Back in 2004 when I was looking to name my events company, I stumbled across the word 'Chic' in an old dictionary. The definition was: “a fashionable lifestyle, ideology, or pursuit”. I fell in love with the word and the idea that chic is the pursuit of something better, prettier, or cooler than you are today. Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
