  1. Heat a small skillet to medium high heat. Spread a thin layer of butter on one side of both bread slices; place one slice bread, buttered-side-down, in hot skillet. Immediately place both cheese slices on bread and cover with second bread slice, butter-side-up. When first side is browned, turn over and brown other side. Remove from heat and let cool 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

While some wondered why this is posted as a "recipe", for me a, 17 year old male, home alone alot, it is nice to see somewhere just to make sure I am doing it right


Not everyone is raised learning how to cook. One thing I LOVE about this site is sharing the differences and regional varieties to things I've become accustomed to while growing up. My sons are in their early-mid 20's and never "grasped" what I tried to teach; except they both prefer making their own meals rather than having fast food - therefore I think this is a fantastic addition to AR family! Thanks for sharing this staple recipe - my boys sure appreciate it too!


What can you say about the original? I love grilled cheese, it is a great hot meal with soup when it is just me for dinner. I like to add ham to mine.
