Deb Shafer is bringing a savory slice of holiday cheer to our recipe series. As our office manager, Deb has a variety of responsibilities that keep us running smoothly. And, Deb’s Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese will keep you toasty warm this holiday season, so you can weather whatever comes your way.

"We really don’t have any special holiday traditions. We didn’t live close to our families, so it was always just the four of us. When our girls were very young, I started a tradition for Christmas Eve. Instead of making a huge meal, I started making parmesan-crusted grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Every year, we would eat that and then watch It’s a Wonderful Life. My girls now do the same with their families."

Parmesan Crusted Grilled Cheese


❖    Your favorite kind of bread

❖    Butter

❖    Garlic salt

❖    Grated Parmesan cheese

❖    Variety of cheese for the inside - I like cheddar, Monterey jack and Gruyere


❖    Combine softened butter, garlic salt, and grated Parmesan cheese.

❖    Spread on your choice of bread and build your sandwich.

❖    Grill over medium heat - the inside gets nicely melted and the outside doesn’t burn!

❖    Serve with your favorite tomato soup!
