Pepperoni Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


8 slices of bread (I use whole wheat)
6 oz shredded cheese (mozzarella or Italian blend)
1/2 marinara sauce
6 oz sliced pepperoni
dried basil
dried oregano
cooking spray


Pre-heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray. Place 2 slices of bread in the skillet (more if your skillet is big enough). Place 1 1/2 oz of cheese on each slice of bread. Sprinkle with basil and oregano. Top with 2 layers of sliced pepperoni (12-18 slices, depending on the size of your bread). Place a 2nd slice of bread on top. Spray with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown on first side, flip and cook until golden brown on second side and cheese is melted. Repeat for remaining sandwiches.
Serve with marinara sauce for dipping (remember to heat it up in the microwave if you've been storing it in the fridge)

Serves 4
