  • 4 slices white bread

  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 2 slices Cheddar cheese

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Generously butter one side of a slice of bread. Place bread butter-side down in the hot skillet; add 1 slice of cheese. Butter a second slice of bread on one side and place butter-side up on top of cheese.
  2. Cook until lightly browned on one side; flip over and continue cooking until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining 2 slices of bread, butter, and slice of cheese.

Grilled Cheese with Tomatoes

  • large tomatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices sourdough bread or other country-style loaf
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 pound sharp white cheddar, shredded

Cooking Instructions

  1. Slice tomatoes as thin as possible (a serrated knife works great) and place on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Let sit, turning once, until they have released some of their liquid, 20–30 minutes.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  3. Spread the butter over 1 side of each of the bread slices, this will be the side exposed to the heat.  
  4. Once the skillet is heated, place butter side down on the skillet for both slices.
  5. Spread the mayonnaise on the top side of the bread.
  6. Place each piece of cheddar cheese on top of the mayonnaise. 
  7. Add the tomatoes to only one bread slice.
  8. After about a minute, place the bread slice, without the tomato’s on top of the tomato half, making the sandwich.
  9. Mash the sandwich together with a spatula, and let cook for an additional minute.
  10. Serve immediately.
