Monterey Jack Shrimp Grilled Cheese on Homemade Garlic Bread

Shrimp Grilled Cheese – Parmesan topped sourdough bread surrounds garlic and lemon infused Gruyere and Mozzarella cheeses and tender shrimp to create a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich to remember!
This is definitely not your average grilled cheese. Imagine the flavors of a Shrimp Scampi Pizza recreated in an easy to prepare sandwich that can be made in an air fryer on on top of the stove any day of the week

Recipe Notes & Tips

I love the flavor combination of the Gruyere and mozzarella cheeses, but feel free to play with other types of cheese that you like.
Yes you can use larger shrimp if you prefer. Simply place the peeled, deveined shrimp in the garlic butter mixture and cook until pink and opaque.

Recipe modifications:

Feel free to add chopped green onions or Italian parsley to the cheese mixture.
For a true shrimp scampi flavor, add a tablespoon white wine to the skillet when you add the shrimp.
You can always add more garlic and/or lemon for even more flavor.
