Recipe Comments & Reviews

Wonderful! On the top of the provolone cheese I added sliced green olives and minced fresh onion,then topped with tomatoes and other slice of cheese. Excellent.
I loved this recipe I have a habit of making the same lunch this made me try something new.
i didn't make it yet but it looks delicious!
i like
You can make this sandwich healthier by eliminating the butter/spread on the inside of the sandwich. That eliminates 3 whole tablespoons of fat. And (apologies to Land'o'lakes) I like to use olive oil spray instead of butter on the outside. First I spray the pan, then put the sandwiches down, then spray the top side of the sandwich before I flip them. But I like the idea of using English Muffin Bread and combining sliced mozzarella and cheddar, and the tomatoes add a great touch!
I added 6 fresh arugula leaves from my garden to this recipe and it was fabulous...gave it a little kick.
Very good, I used vine ripe tomatoes and added arugula (for some spiceness) to the basil, all grown in my kitchen garden.
"I've made this a few times now, it's delicious and really simple! A good go to recipe."
