Cheesy Garlic Bread Shrimp Grilled Cheese with Monterey Jack


For the Garlic Bread:

1 large baguette, sliced in half lengthwise

4 tablespoons butter, softened

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

For the Shrimp Filling:

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

For the Grilled Cheese:

8 slices Monterey Jack cheese

Additional butter for frying


Prepare the garlic bread:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

In a small bowl, mix together the butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley.

Spread the garlic butter mixture evenly on the cut sides of the baguette.

Place the baguette halves on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and keep warm.

Cook the shrimp:

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Season the shrimp with paprika, salt, and pepper.

Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they are pink and cooked through. Remove from heat.

Assemble the grilled cheese:

Slice the garlic bread into sandwich-sized pieces.

On one slice of bread, layer slices of Monterey Jack cheese, followed by a portion of the cooked shrimp, and another layer of cheese.

Top with another slice of garlic bread.

Heat a clean skillet over medium heat and add a bit of butter.

Place the sandwich in the skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes per side.


Cut the grilled cheese sandwiches diagonally and serve hot.
