  1. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Generously butter one side of a slice of bread. Place bread butter-side-down onto skillet bottom and add 1 slice of cheese. Butter a second slice of bread on one side and place butter-side-up on top of sandwich. Grill until lightly browned and flip over; continue grilling until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining 2 slices of bread, butter and slice of cheese.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Definitely a classic that goes great with tomato soup! I use multi-grain bread and add a slice or two of tomato to make it a little more healthy. This is my husband's favorite, especially with ...
