The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- 2 slices bread (wheat, white, sourdough, rye, etc.)
- 2 slices cheese, good melting cheese (Munster, Cheddar, Provolone, American)
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
*These values are approximate. Per serving, based on a 2,000 Calorie diet.
Pre-heat a cast iron pan or skillet over medium-low heat.
Place cheese slices onto bread and butter the outside of one slice of bread.
Place buttered side of bread face down in the preheated pan. Butter top slice of bread. Turn the sandwich when the bottom has browned, approximately 2 minutes. Continue to flip to ensure even browning until cheese is fully melted. The entire cooking process should take 5-7 minutes.
Remove sandwich from pan and enjoy immediately.

OMG! I don’t know how I connected with your website from California, but I am eternally grateful! This is totally the BEST grilled cheese EVER! I never thought to use a variety of cheeses! What a GOURMET sandwich! Next time I will add tomatoes and maybe even bacon …oh gosh…sauteed onions…as suggested in the notes. I’ve just added this site to my Favorites and will be back to try other recipes. Thanks so much!
