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.

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!
