HEAT 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, and cook, stirring until the garlic is fragrant, but not browned about 1 minute. Add spinach and salt and cook, stirring until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Drain spinach in a sieve if it is watery.

LAY bread slices on work surface. Divide cheese between two of the slices. Top with spinach and the remaining two slices of bread.

CLEAN and dry the skillet. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and butter to the skillet and heat over medium heat. When butter is melted, arrange sandwiches in the skillet. Cook until browned on both sides, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Cut in half to serve.
