    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    A delicious sandwich that you will make again and again. It is wonderful with Baked Potato Soup and other soups that don't have meat. These can be grilling while the soup is heating.

      My husband and I enjoyed these wonderful sandwiches today for lunch. Very tasty and I loved the flavor of the Parmesan/butter mixture. I forgot to put the basil in but I did use it as a garnish. I constructed ours a little differently....I buttered the first slices of bread, laid them in a cold skillet, then assembled the rest of the sandwich right in the pan. Saved the hassle of trying to butter both sides of a fully constructed sandwich. Thanks Mimi, I will for sure make these again!

      Super sandwich! Second time I made it I got even more creative. I used all of your ingredients and also added 1/2 cup (packed) grated whole-milk mozzarella cheese, reducing the jack cheese. Also added about 5 tablespoons chopped and drained roasted red peppers from the jar. I love this with a good sour dough bread. Thanks for posting Mimi.
