Family Meal Time : Pizza Grilled Cheese

As you may all ready know Pinterest is a wonderful place to find lots of great recipes. This one for grilled cheese pizza style was located on Pinterest as well. Rather than regular butter you could use garlic butter to give it more of a pizza style. As always there must be some sauce and that is where the pizza sauce is the dip. 
Recipe from Blog Chef

Serves 4

 ¼ cup butter, softened
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon oregano
8 slices of bread
1 package sliced pepperoni
1-1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Pizza sauce (for dipping)

In a small bowl, mix together butter, garlic powder and oregano.  Smooth onto one side of each piece of bread.  Heat a frying pan over medium heat, and place buttered bread buttered-side down.  Top with a handful of mozzarella cheese (approximately 1/4 cup), and top with slices of pepperoni.  Place another piece of bread on top, with the garlic butter facing out.  I like to place a lid on top to help melt the cheese.  After a couple minutes when the bread is golden brown, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.  Repeat with all sandwiches, and serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping.
August has been named the  national family meal month. To me no better time as it is also get back to school month. This means that a very busy time of year will be starting once again. If your life is like mine then you know that all year is busy so you have to work at getting the family together for meals. In my childhood I can remember going to my grandmothers and eating sunday dinner with my grandma, my family, aunts, uncles, cousins and everyone that showed up. Now I try to keep the tradition alive but it is not on sundays but on a week night that we find that we can all get together we have a meal and often do an activity together as well.
These sandwiches would go great with soup or salad
