"Used all peppironi with chopped green onion. Was great, a new twist on grilled cheese! Will make again."

"This was a great Saturday night meal (combined with an antipasto salad). I substituted italian sausage and sourdough and included sliced salami (because my family loves it). I had to grill them since I don't have a sandwich maker, but they came out great. I also sprinkled some shredded parmesan cheese over the buttered bread before grilling it. Now I wish I had a sandwich maker:)"

"have not made it yet, but it states to heat the 1st 7 ingredients in the microwave. That would include the bread. Is that correct?"
