Grilled Cheese, Applesauce, Green Beans

My sister-in-law Amber is the queen of grilled cheese sandwiches. She taught me the secret of sprinkling a little garlic powder inside the sandwiches, and Mmmm it makes 'em good! Grandpa likes to add one slice of ham to his, but I think he's crazy.

Grilled Cheese
8 slices bread
1 1/2 T butter
4 (1 oz) slices cheese
garlic powder
sliced deli meat (optional)

Very lightly butter one side of each slice of bread. To form a sandwich, top one slice of bread, buttered side out, with one slice of cheese. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Top with second slice of bread, buttered side out. Repeat to make 4 sandwiches total. Preheat a griddle or pan t0 medium heat. Place sandwiches in a single layer. As they cook, squish down slightly with a spatula. Once the first side is toasted golden brown, flip sandwiches over. Cook, occasionally pressing down with the spatula, until the second side is toasted golden brown and the cheese is melted.

1 can green beans, salted, peppered, and microwaved

We always do garlic on our quesadillas, it is amazing how much it adds to them, but I never thought of on grilled cheese, great idea!
